Taiwan’s low-profile military exercises in line with the practical and pragmatic approach was misunderstanding
Data Figure: Taiwan’s Han Kuang exercises in CM11 previous Yonghu attacks an imaginary enemy tank fire
Taiwan News Network, April 29 (Strait Herald reporter Liu Qiang) Taiwan’s” Han Kuang No. 26 “Exercise is currently the island’s many areas simultaneously, In the last three days of exercise,” great fighters flee “,” live-fire exercises no shrink, “the news in full of such negative news, it seems that the era of Ma Ying-jeou,” Han Kuang “military speech, Chen Shui-bian era of performance than the still unbearable. Is that really true?
horse neglect led exercises has shrunk?
five-day Taiwan, “Han Kuang 26″ exercise 26, the official debut, while Taiwan’s armed forces launched 24 hours off-site real military drill to simulate the PLA attack Taiwan, the Taiwan military’s contingency deployment capability. Taiwan’s “Defense Ministry” also released “concentric 22″ exercise summoned, who received the “education summoned” Taiwan reservists should report the specified time to designated sites.
Mirage fighters to save in order to verify the effectiveness of Taiwan for the first time arranged 45 aircraft to fly from Hualien, Hsinchu Air Force Base, good mountain base in order to “escape” missile attack. However, in the Taiwan media reports, the exercise program is considered very negative, “The Great Escape.” Hualien Air Force base 27 of the original arrangement Ma Ying-jeou visited Taiwan Mirage 2000-5 fighters watching scrambled subjects, trip cancellation Ma Ying-jeou, Taiwan’s military places on the grounds of poor weather, cancellation of Mirage fighters were scrambled exercises, and finally “do not willing “to open a two Mirage fighters taxiing on the runway twice, cosmetic and do take photographs for the media.
Ma Ying-jeou 27 due to highway accidents to cancel visit to a landslide, “Han Kuang” exercise stroke, the next few days he was not scheduled to go to exercise, mean that he had since taking office have yet to Review Taiwan’s “Han Kuang “exercise, it will also be subject to public attention. Another result of the Taiwan authorities to promote “carbon reduction”, “Han Kuang 26″ exercise did not arrange the shooting, it will also lead to questioned. Military operations officer, said in a grass-roots level: “It’s like a walk-on exercises, waste annual training!” The media also questioned the “half-sets of exercises,” completely unable to show the effectiveness of the training.
Taiwan’s practical exercise is not understood
plan in accordance with the Taiwan military exercises, the first day of simulation Liberation Army launched a massive attack against Taiwan, Taiwan’s navy and the Air Force for war in the first 3 days to save power, Hualien, Taiwan Air Force Base and aircraft repair drill hole library runway, then drill lockout Suao naval base, missile boats stationed in readiness by the fishing port. Taiwan’s military plans in the fourth day, a joint counter-attack, including against the landing, anti-airborne and cross reinforcement.
in the Taiwan military’s view, that exercise is a more pragmatic idea, but the face of the outside world more and more of a “misunderstanding” over the Taiwan military exercises only he is busy, he is busy through the media “clarification.”
Air Force 401 Union Captain Colonel Liu Hui-one thousand 28 that Taiwan’s Mirage fighters will be transferred to the best mountain base in Hualien, Taiwan is based on the narrow space made the necessary strategic shift is to the best equipment preserved, applied at the right time to win on the battlefield, not the media that the “battle to escape.” 401 Wing, ground-based brigade official also said the runway repair of drill results, said the use of U.S. active-duty fiberglass repair package and with reference to the U.S. experience, the base with 4-6 hours has been fixed within one to two large crater in the repair of energy , war can be repaired within the time limit 12 large crater, rapid recovery of the Air Force’s combat capabilities.
not seriously challenged for Ma Ying-jeou, Taiwan’s “Ministry of National Defense,” 28 that, according to the regulations by the defense during the war, “Defense Minister” authorized “chief of staff” on a combat command, so this exercise from the “General” rate to serving military participating, the focus of military operations in the exercise program, Ma Ying-jeou inspected units at any time exercise conditions, but this exercise is not particularly inviting him to Review. As for the “non-live” issue, Taiwan’s “Defense Ministry”, said the military had been planning a variety of weapons firing at the annual Bingke base, Tri-Service joint training and exercise implementation of integrated sea and air military services, not in the “Han Kuang” military exercise in the exercise implemented simultaneously firing, in order to avoid interference with the conduct of the exercise.
exercise the horse, “deliberately low-key”
Ma Ying-jeou to implement the “defense and effective deterrence” military strategy, to maintain the status quo, to create ” small but powerful, small and fine, small and clever, “the armed forces, Taiwan’s” Han Kuang “series of exercises will gradually degraded, low-key, dilute and weaken.
Taiwan’s “Han Kuang 26″ exercise will be in the past 7 months to 10 months to implement the military exercise schedule, adjust to climate stability of the March to May to implement, is to facilitate the typhoon season , all units to focus on disaster prevention and preparedness at any time put into prevention and rescue work. And exercise a “real soldiers do not live, not to engage in fire show” changes, it is Ma said the previous fire show “does not fully meet the actual status quo.” Adjustment “Han Kuang” exercise cycle, the content and practices, exercises can strengthen the effectiveness and reduce carbon emissions, save money, and one can save over one hundred million yuan NT funding.
Ma Ying-jeou is considered, “We will not launch a defensive battle the first strike” if the occurrence of future war in the Taiwan Strait, is a veritable “asymmetric warfare.” Therefore, the “Han Kuang” exercise focuses on training should be verified “asymmetric warfare capability,” the main aspects for the existing weapons and equipment to identify the enemy threat “non-traditional” and “non-head” of combat.
not the “face” with the “lining”
In fact, the first control from Ma Ying-jeou’s “Han Kuang 25″ Start, “Han Kuang “exercise time on the show with very different style of flat, marked” low-key and pragmatic, “the Markov mark.
Taiwan “National Policy Foundation, the National Security Group,” Li Hua, Research Fellow, Ball told reporters that Chen Shui-bian administration, the “Han Kuang exercise” is not only expanding, and even become the “Taiwan independence” forces provoke the mainland platform, in addition to exaggerating the island’s navy and air force strength, is rendered “glory two E” missiles “offensive weapon.” Operations in the field of basic problems that still exist in the case, Taiwan would often put some new concept of warfare is not yet mature, direct them to move to live ammunition exercise, exaggerated, show the phenomenon of many. Chen Shui-bian of Taiwan was not taken into account the real needs of military security, but to fight “Taiwan independence” political gimmick, that “fire show” looks “military capacity of the Zhuang Sheng”, but a far cry from the situation and combat, in addition to worsen cross-strait relations, for enhance Taiwan’s combat capability is almost no real help, had become a costly “modern sound and light drama.”
Ma Ying-jeou came to power, these practices deviate from the track gradually be corrected. For the “Han Kuang exercises” only identify problems, not solve the problem of chronic illness, Taiwan since 2009 to break the practice of the exercises held every other year, the first year of computer programs and soldiers pushed verify operation found that combat-related problems, develop the feasibility of approach, whereby the second year and then do the military exercise, to identify problems and solve problems effectively combine really enhance the “Han Kuang exercises,” the actual value. Although the “Han Kuang” military exercise of the scale, far less momentum before losing “face”, but bring back the “lining”, the military part of the exercise to the “Han Kuang exercises,” the political and economic forms in response to cross- to “the Xingbing push”, so that the island’s military exercises from the flat-era “acting” return to exercise the right track, sound and orderly, low-key and pragmatic, moderate trend in response to cross-strait relations, but also help enhance Taiwan’s actual combat capability.
