The second stage of Taiwan’s Han Kuang 31 series of military exercises will be held from
Sept. 7-11 on Taiwan proper and on the country’s outlying islands and will simulate an attack from mainland China, the country’s Ministry of National Defense said Tuesday.
The war games, which will include some live-fire drills, will see the ROC Army, Navy and Air Force test their joint operations in the event of war. They follow computer-aided war games held in May.
Major General Zhong Shu-ming, director of the Ministry of National Defense’s Joint Operation Division, said there will be more drills this year than last year.
The Navy will add five drills and the Air Force will have six more, with the participation of 69 more aircraft, Zhong said. [FULL STORY]
