Default Defending Taiwan (Republic of China)

Taiwan’s homegrown missiles point to an evolving defense doctrine

Entry Excerpt:

Summary: Taiwan is increasingly a designer and producer of its own battlefield, anti-ship, and long-range land attack missiles. This commitment to the expense of homegrown missiles shows that Taiwan is not confident that the United States will supply it with what it needs for its defense. Taiwan is also attempting to have its missiles perform the missions previously performed by fighter-attack aircraft; in the face of the mainland’s enormous missile superiority, Taiwan will likely abandon fixed-wing aircraft. Eventually, Taiwan may have to adopt a decentralized, low-tech “insurgency” defense doctrine. But it is doubtful whether such a doctrine is a good match for modern Taiwan.

I am sure that there are posts on defending Taiwan, but only these two SWJ Blog posts were found. So they have been merged and renamed. The thread has been opened too.

Default Another way of defending Taiwan - Teheran's?

Hat tip to WoTR for this article:https://warontherocks.com/2017/04/fo...etric-defense/

I thought worthy of including as it cites the possible impact of Iran's approach in an unexpected place.
