People Online Beijing, May 19 (Xinhua) In recent years, military history and historical issues in a number of false rumors spread on the site, resulting in many people believed it. May 19 morning, the National Defense University professor Xu Yan guest Major General People’s Daily, People’s Daily on military history military online issue of acceptance of an interview with reporters and interaction with friends.
recent years, there is a saying: 1974 Sea naval battle, when it was said that the PLA warships through the Taiwan Strait, when Chiang Kai-shek had ordered the release, and some say that Taiwan authorities to assist the continent, this is true it?
Xu Yan explanation for this problem: This is completely fictional, the PLA through the Taiwan Strait is not the time from the Sea naval battle began. In 1949, when Nationalist troops fled to Taiwan, was indeed complete control of the Taiwan Strait. People’s Liberation Army, including the mainland by the merchant is no way one interception through the fishing boats are to be intercepted and arrested.
artillery, but the Golden Gate in 1958 when the People’s Liberation Army gunboats, corvettes, torpedo boat has entered the Taiwan Strait. Naval battle occurred with the KMT, to give him a heavy blow. So the Golden Gate artillery after 1958, Mao ordered the implementation of a single day to play, two-day suspension, do not take the initiative to attack them, along with the Taiwan authorities to respond, after 1959, ordered the ships can not attack the mainland. At this time the PLA vessels, including merchant and then after the mainland’s Taiwan Strait, generally will not have much fight. But he was also wary, to prevent the attack.
in the Taiwan Strait in 1965, there was a Chongwu east of the sea, it is mainly the KMT was to send agents to the mainland. But usually both normal vessels and vessels from the conflict have generally not occurred. Therefore, the East China Sea Fleet of People’s Liberation Army in 1974 from the Taiwan Strait after the ship, he did not conflict. This is normal, is not interested in the release, because the waterway is not a complete control of Taiwan, the mainland vessels often have to go, how can we release it?
Xu Yan described in the interview: “There are some description, the case was written so that those who have knowledge of a look that is completely false, such as ‘open beacon light’, a little knowledge of sailing know This is nonsense! How wide Taiwan Strait do? narrowest place 130 km, average width of 200 kilometers, you open the navigation light at night who is visible, beacon lights at night can only see a few kilometers, ten kilometers, for example, on both sides are the reef, where you open the beacon light it makes sense, then the wide strait, what you meant to play beacon lights, the look is makes up for. “
