Taiwan’s war games simulate invasion by People’s Liberation Army

Taiwan began five days of computer-aided war games on Monday, simulating an attack on the island by the People’s Liberation Army (PLA). The drills are part of the Han Kuang exercises, Taiwan’s largest annual war games, an earlier phase of which saw live-fire drills being staged in July.

The war games were designed to test Taiwanese commanders’ ability to adopt the right defence strategy and coordinate different forces while under attack, the defence ministry said.
Officials from the American Institute in Taiwan, the United States’ de facto embassy on the island, were invited to observe the drills, a military insider said.
