include both computer-simulated war games and live-fire drills as has been the case in the past, the Ministry of National Defense (MND) said Monday.

In a statement, the ministry said the procedures of the Han Kuang exercises (漢光演習), Taiwan’s major war games, will remain unchanged this year.

They will involve “computer-simulated war games first, followed by live-fire drills,” the statement said, clarifying reports by some local media outlets, including CNA, the previous day that no live-fire drills will be held this year.

The Han Kuang exercises involve all three branches of the military — Army, Navy and Air Force — and are conducted to test their joint response to simulated threats from China.     [FULL  STORY]
