Chinese military experts are carefully studying US actions during the Ukraine conflict to develop measures to counter Washington in the fight for Taiwan. This is reported by the Japanese newspaper Asahi Shimbun.
Beijing is studying in particular the impact of American weapons on the course of hostilities in Ukraine and is trying to model their use in a possible confrontation over Taiwan.
For example, China is convinced of the need to attract large-scale investment in unmanned aerial vehicles. At the same time, the PLA is conducting a large number of tests on the use of drones in the skies of Taiwan.
Along with this, much attention is paid to the use of Starlink satellite communications in Ukraine and their availability to the soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The authors of the publication believe that China, in order to counter the United States properly, must find a way to deal with American Starlink satellites.
Meanwhile, on March 8, the Taiwanese military spotted seven aircraft and three Chinese military warships near the island. However, the PLA’s combat assets did not cross the center line of the Taiwan Strait and did not enter the Taiwanese air defense area of operation. Despite this, an air patrol was raised in the air, and air defense systems were deployed on the ground.
