Chinese military exercises "Single Sword" started near the island of Taiwan

Chinese military exercises "Single Sword" started near the island of Taiwan. Chinese exercises around Taiwan are aimed at testing the readiness of the Air Force to gain air superiority over the Taiwan Strait and control over the island. Also, task forces of the Chinese Navy organized combat patrols around Taiwan, simulating a circular blockade of the island. As part of the Joint Sword exercise, a computer-animated video simulating a Chinese missile attack was shown. All types of Chinese troops are used in the exercises. On April 9, 31 aircraft and 9 ships of the Chinese army crossed the "middle line" of the Taiwan Strait, or have already entered the southwestern part of the Taiwan Air Defense Identification Zone, the Taiwan Ministry of Defense said. China's "Joint Sword" exercise around Taiwan, organized by the Eastern Command of the People's Liberation Army of China, will last until April 10. J-10, J-11, J-16 and Su-30 fighters, H-6K strategic bombers, Y-8, Y-9 and Y-20AR transport aircraft, KJ-500 early warning and control aircraft are used in the exercises. As well as marine and land equipment.

The Sky Bow.3. (Mach 7, 200kms) would mount a serious threat to any PLAAF plane hoping to get to the Taiwan coast intact.
