TAIPEI, Taiwan — Taiwan’s annual military exercises will be held next month to test its
new “multideterrence” defense strategy, the military announced on Tuesday.
According to an announcement by the Defense Ministry, the annual Han Kuang exercises, which simulate various scenarios of attack by the Beijing government, will, as usual, be comprised of two stages: first computer-aided war games following by live-fire drills.
The series of exercises will begin with five days of computer-aided war games from May 1 to 5 before live-fire drills are staged across the country and at offshore islands from May 22 to 26 for five days and four nights, the ministry said.
This year’s drill will for the first time test the R.O.C. armed forces’ newly adopted defense strategy. [FULL STORY]
