Three Chinese military aircraft invade Taiwan’s ADIZ

Taipei, June 19: Three Chinese military aircraft broke through Taiwan’s Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ) on Saturday (local time). According to the Department of Defense (MND), two PLAAF Shenyang J-16 fighters and one Shaanxi Y-8 anti-submarine fighter were tracked in the southwest corner of Taiwan’s ADIZ, Taiwan News reported. .. ..

ADIZ is an area that extends beyond the airspace of the country and requires air traffic controllers to identify themselves to arriving aircraft. In response, Taiwan sent aircraft, broadcast radio warnings, and deployed air defense missile systems to track PLAAF planes. Taiwan was hit by a widespread power outage. Economic Minister Wang Mika apologizes for any inconvenience.

This is the 7th day of the intrusion this month. So far this month, Taiwan News reported that China has sent 11 aircraft, including 7 fighters and 4 spotters, to Taiwan’s identification zone.

Since September 2020, China has increased its use of gray zone tactics by regularly sending aircraft to Taiwan’s ADIZ. Most often it occurs in the southwest corner. According to MND, in 2021, Chinese military aircraft entered Taiwan’s ADIZ with 961 instances in 239 days.

Gray zone tactics are defined as “an effort or series of efforts to achieve one’s safety goals, without resorting to steady-state deterrence and the use of direct and significant force beyond guarantees.”
