Nuclear threats in the skies over Taiwan penetrated at dawn a squadron of 37 Chinese military aircraft through the island’s Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ). Some of the planes then continued to the western Pacific Ocean, where they maneuvered the ships of the US fleet. Taipei made the F-16s scramble (quick take off): the skirmishes, which began at 11pm on Wednesday Italian time, are becoming increasingly frequent even if it is above all the United States that watches this new incursion with apprehension. Because, as the Taiwanese Ministry of Defense reports, in addition to the usual J-11 and J-16 fighters, the latest versions of the nuclear-capable H-6 bombers were also seen in the southwest corner of Addis. China considers Taiwan an “inalienable” part of its territory.
The H-6N is the latest version of the Xian H-6 derived from the Soviet Tupolev Tu-16 twin-engine bomber built since 1959 under license for the Chinese People’s Liberation Army Air Force. The latest versions, according to US intelligence, are modified to turn heavy aircraft into a launch pad for hypersonic missiles, including nuclear warheads. Missiles fear the American fleets sailing in the China Sea, including the Taiwan Strait, which are intensifying their activities when it comes to responding to these Chinese raids.
In recent days, the Pentagon has expressed concern about the aggressive moves of the Chinese armed forces in Asia. “We continue to be concerned about the PLA’s increasingly dangerous and coercive activities in the region, even in recent days,” said Pentagon spokesman Pat Ryder, who works with US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin at the Shangri-La Dialogue. Singapore Annual Security Forum. Yesterday, there was a risk of a collision between two Chinese and American naval units in the Taiwan Strait, a few days after a risky maneuver in the sky by a Chinese aircraft on board an American reconnaissance plane.
The United States, Taiwan and Japan will share real-time data collected by reconnaissance drones to enhance coordination in the face of China’s growing assertiveness in the region. This is what the Financial Times reported, citing people familiar with the project. Towards the end of Trump’s presidency, the United States announced more than $5 billion in arms sales to Taiwan, including four drones worth $600 million, intended to improve the island’s capabilities and deter a Chinese invasion. City also said Washington would allow these planes to integrate into the system to be used by the US military in the region and the Japan Self-Defense Force. The initiative would allow Washington and its partners to monitor all intelligence collected by the drones simultaneously.
