Taiwan scrambles jets after largest ever incursion by China | Military News
October 2, 2021/0 Comments/in Aljazeera News/
At least 38 Chinese aircraft flying in two waves crossed Taiwan’s air defence zone prompting the deployment of its fighters jets.
Taiwan has reported the largest ever incursion by the Chinese air force into its air defence zone, with 38 aircraft flying in two waves as Beijing marked the founding of the People’s Republic of China.
Chinese-claimed Taiwan has complained for a year or more of repeated missions by China’s air force near the democratically governed island, often in the southwestern part of its air defence zone close to the Taiwan-controlled Pratas Islands.
The Taiwan Defence Ministry first reported Taiwanese fighters had scrambled against 18 J-16 and four Su-30 fighter jets plus two nuclear-capable H-6 bombers and an anti-submarine aircraft on Friday.
Then in the early hours of Saturday, the ministry said a further 13 Chinese aircraft were involved in a mission on Friday night – 10 J-16s, 2 H-6s and an early warning aircraft.
It said Taiwan sent combat aircraft to warn away the Chinese aircraft, while missile systems were deployed to monitor them.
The first batch of Chinese aircraft all flew in an area close to the Pratas Islands, with the two bombers flying closest to the atoll, according to a map issued by the ministry.
The second group flew down into the Bashi Channel that separates Taiwan from the Philippines, a key waterway that links the Pacific with the disputed South China Sea.
China has yet to comment on its activities. It has previously said such flights were to protect the country’s sovereignty and aimed at “collusion” between Taiwan and the United States, the island’s most important international backer.
The previous largest incursion happened in June, involving 28 Chinese air force aircraft.
China’s latest mission came less than a day after its government launched an attack on Taiwan’s foreign minister, evoking the words of revolutionary leader Mao Zedong to denounce him as a “shrilling” fly for his efforts to promote Taiwan internationally.

China has stepped up military and political pressure to try and force Taiwan to accept Chinese sovereignty.
Taiwan says it is an independent country and will defend its freedom and democracy.

China missed the chance of donald trump era when invasion was possible.
now US is waiting for china to make any more before sanctions kicks in

secondly taiwan invasion is only 5-7 days game at minimum. however lashback by US & allies in terms of sanctions will be severe

It won't just be sanctions, it will be a war.

It's not the first time and won't be the last.
Incursion by 38 aircraft is no small incident.
These days air defences can detect aircraft several hundred miles in neighbouring countries and usually can challenge them well ahead of any violation, either Taiwan radars are not efficient or they are often caught napping.

Only a few H-6s shocked Taiwan. If the Tu-95M and Tu-22M appeared, it would be the worst nightmare for Taiwan, Japan, South Korea and the United States. Relations between Russia and China are in the honeymoon period, but who knows what will happen in the next 50 years, now is a good time for China to buy weapons and receive the full TOT.

All your sanction cards had been used. You don't have any tools left except war. I don't think US dares to wage war with China.
I don't think China will dare to cross the red line the US's clearly drawn that attacking Taiwan will result in a war, period. Let's pray the world can stay sane and yet another war doesn't get started.

US government never promised it would start war if China reunifies Taiwan by force. Because US knows it is very likely to happen and US can not stop China. So your red line only exists in your mouth.

Its extremely difficult to deter China using sanctions at the best of times, but when it comes to Taiwan, no amount of sanctions will will deter China. Only option is all out war. Even the cost of going to all out war with China is rising rapidly. The chessboard is shifting rapidly in China’s favour. The US sees the same thing which is why it is panicking.

None of the countries that are at war with China around China can defeat China. I am afraid that the United States does not have the guts to start a full-scale war with China. The United States will only bully some small countries by force. For opponents like China, it will only collapse the United States. :china:
