The Military Imbalance In The Taiwan Strait #infographic

China has never ruled out and continued to develop its capacity to invade Taiwan. In recent years, she's been modernizing her military, launching the J-20, a 5th-century indigenous stealth fighter. It also commissioned two aircraft carriers for amphibious transport, along with other new dock / landing vessels. While the likelihood of China taking Taiwan forcefully is poor, the military balance of the Taiwan Strait is firmly in China's favour. The accompanying diagram gives an overview of the difference, which is based on a U.S. government annual survey.

S.A. Alex Azar, Secretary of Health and Human Services, visited Taiwan last month for high-level talks, in a move that enraged Beijing. His unexpected flight led China to send J-10 and J-11 fighter jets into the Taiwan Strait, where they momentarily crossed the delicate median line that separates airspace unofficially between the mainland and the island. China sees Taiwan as a rebel province and focuses on the inevitability of reunification, reserving all necessary tools, including military action, to be used.
