"In case of an attempt to land the enemy on the coast of the island": Taiwan will create new coastal defense brigades

The Taiwan Ministry of Defense is publishing plans to reorganize its army. The plans contain a measure to increase the number of so-called coastal defense formations.


Taiwan News writes that this measure is related to the need to increase the level of protection "in case of an attempt to land an enemy on the coast of the island."

In total, the creation of five new coastal defense brigades is planned until 2023. As a result, there will be 12 such brigades in the Taiwanese armed forces.

Starting in January 2021, two brigades "will take up positions in the most vulnerable areas along the coast - in the north-western and southern parts."

Later, it is planned to distribute the remaining coastal defense brigades by zones of responsibility. At the same time, it can be stated that mainly such areas of responsibility are the territories of the western coast of Taiwan - that part of it that goes to the Taiwan Strait, which separates the island from the People's Republic of China.

Some time ago, the Chinese AUG, led by the first aircraft carrier Shandong built in China, passed through this strait. Its air wing is still being formed, but at the same time, the group is maneuvering in different areas of the water area, including in the aforementioned Taiwan Strait. The appearance of the Chinese ships alarmed Taipei, which announced "aggressive actions by Beijing."

    Oh, it wouldn't flare up there yet. China is showing muscle, which Japan, Taiwan, Vietnam, and South Korea clearly dislike. The Americans clearly play into this situation.

      Vietnam is neutral, as long as it is not touched.

    A military man from Taiwan, like Lloh, is the last one, he makes a presentation on a piece of paper, even if he takes a laser pointer! Not the same electronics in Formosa, not the same. )))

    There are about 12 bayonets in 6 brigades, and they think they will escape the PLA army of 000 bayonets, more than 2 ships, thousands of aircraft and missiles. Or naive, or .....

      So why then did the Chinese still not get their hands on Taiwan? Maybe because the arms are short?

        For the same reason that Russia could not take Crimea from Ukraine.

    To confront China with Taiwan is the strategic task of the Americans. Whatever they say, but they solve a lot of their problems with the beginning of this conflict.

    Still more for complacency. If China really decides that it's time to sort it out with Taiwan and put all the points above the I, then it will sort it out and additional brigades will not help. And the main thing is that the main "ally" of the United States will try in this case not to interfere with its armed forces on the principle that the problem is yours, decide for yourself, we will help you with words and weapons. And there is nowhere to run, tk. Isle.

    They resisted the Chinese, they will be economically attracted to the Taiwanese after the states' ultimatums to sponsor their security, the Chinese augs will still seem like a gift of fate.

    They would have to build a powerful line of coastal fortifications, around the entire island, and in depth, with underground communications, and even then this will only prolong the time and increase the losses of the attackers. Without support from the side, Taiwan will fall.

    And develop the submarine fleet, to the maximum in quantity and quality. Only this can at least somehow slow down the conduct of amphibious operations and operations to supply the landing troops.
