WARGAMING: China Military’s Taiwan Invasion Force Conducts Amphibious Beach Assault Drills

China Holds Amphibious War Drills, But No Proof They're Aimed at Taiwan's Pratas Islands - Sputnik International

Now that the deterrence of President Trump is gone, China is on the move. China has no fear or respect for the “woke” Biden Administration. As such, there is a good possibility that China will attempt to devour Taiwan after the 2022 Winter Olympics. Most especially if China believes that the Biden Administration will be voted out of office in favor of President Trump or Governor DeSantis in 2024. And if China eats Taiwan, it’s a different world. Pray for the people of Taiwan.

China Military’s Taiwan Invasion Force Conducts Amphibious Beach Assault Drills

By Newsweek, May 28, 2021

People’s Liberation Army (PLA) brigade stationed in southeast China conducted a day of intense live-fire exercises and amphibious beach landings, the country’s state broadcaster announced this past week.

The armored division of the PLA’s 73rd Group Army, which is believed to be China’s main invasion force in a presumed plan to attack Taiwan, expended several thousand rounds of ordnance during drills held on May 12, Chinese state broadcaster CCTV said on Monday.

Footage published online showed a number of Type 05 amphibious fighting vehicles being driven into the sea during the exercise, which is said to have lasted eight hours and involved a number of new recruits.

CCTV’s report said drivers were asked to navigate through an obstacle course—made with buoys—before the assault vehicles reached their destination and lined up to fire at targets 6,500 feet away.

The video shows the amphibious vehicles, which also carry anti-tank missiles, unloading shells from their 105 millimeter guns toward a marked mountainside.

The 73rd Group Army, which is stationed in Xiamen in Fujian province, is believed to have conducted the combat training off Dongshan County in the Taiwan Strait, according to satellite images circulated on Chinese social media sites.

Pictures of the drill were also released by the state-owned China National Radio as early as May 15. However, none of the images showed Chinese marines storming beaches.

The 73rd Group Army comprises two motorized infantry divisions, an armored brigade, air defense brigade, missile regiment, artillery regiment and engineer regiment.

According to military analysts, the formation remains at priority combat readiness due to its positioning across from democratic Taiwan, which the Chinese government claims is part of its territory.

The army’s training activities, especially frequent beach landing exercises, have led observers to conclude that it would spearhead an invasion attempt during a Taiwan Strait contingency.
