Know the military comparison of China and Taiwan
Taiwan is much weaker than China. According to the Global Fire Power report, China ranks third in the list of 142 countries in terms of military strength. At the same time, Taiwan occupies the 21st place far behind it. The population of China is around 1 billion 39 crores, while the population of Taiwan is only 23 crores. China’s military budget is $270 billion, while Taiwan’s military budget is only $16.8 billion. China has an army of 20 lakh soldiers, while Taiwan has only 1 lakh 70 thousand soldiers. China’s navy is the largest in the world, while Taiwan is far behind. In such a situation, it can be estimated that how much difference is there in the military strength of these two countries.
What is Taiwan’s correct strategy
According to the Taipei Times, Taiwan has adopted a porcupine-like strategy against China. The porcupine bird has sharp thorns on its back. During the attack of another creature, the porcupine spreads these thorns for its protection. Similarly, Taiwan has also adopted an all-round strategy for its security. This strategy is so effective for Taiwan that if China attacks despite this, it may have to suffer heavy losses. This is the reason why China only threatens to attack Taiwan, but for the last 70 years, it has not tried military action even once.
These weapons of Taiwan can be heavy on China
Taiwan’s strategy is to surround China on its own coast, attack and harass the enemy. Taiwan attaches importance to these weapons’ preventive weapons instead of expensive fighter aircraft and submarines. Taiwan has weapons like the Patriot PAC-3 air defense system. Apart from China’s missiles, its fighter planes and drones can also be shot down. Taiwan has a large number of portable air defense systems Stringer and anti-tank Javelin missiles. Taiwan also has American Harpoon missiles, which can overwhelm Chinese warships. Apart from this, Taiwan is equipped with a large number of other missiles and weapons.
