China preparing to conduct an exercise which will simulate an assault on Taiwanese islands
The People’s Liberation Army is preparing for a gargantuan “training exercise” in the South China Sea, one designed to simulate the assault and takeover of Taiwanese island chains.
No longer attempting to hide their future intentions, the Chinese Communist Party will be conducting their exercises via the Southern Theater Command, and will utilize helicopters, marines, hovercrafts and assault vessels, in the hopes of learning how to better orchestrate a takeover of the Dongsha Islands (also known as the Pratas Islands).
A Taiwanese National Park, the Dongsha Islands cover around 353,668 acres and are prime real estate for the Chinese Communist Party, who wish to have a direct leap point into the Pacific Ocean.
The Dongsha Islands would effectively be the crown jewel of China’s island collection, as the country has had to resort to creating man-made islands in order to expand their area of influence.
According to Taiwan News, Republic of China Armed Forces Major General Lin Wen-huang noted that the ministry had preparations and plans in place in the case of a Communist Chinese attack, and was remaining on alert across Taiwan’s territories, including the Dongsha Islands.
PLAN forces already control Hainan Island as a major seaport for military operations, but American patrols in the region have increased the need for newer islands.
