According to Taiwan media reports, PLA fighters have recently entered Taiwan’s so-called “Air Defense Identification Zone” and even crossed the “middle line of the Strait.”. Taiwan military officials said that in order to prevent “brush gun misfire” and lead to war, if the pilot does not receive the command from the Taiwan Air Force Combat Command, the pilot fired the “first shot” without authorization, and immediately transferred to the legal department after landing.
according to Tsai ing Wen’s instruction, the Taiwan Defense Department immediately revised the “Taiwan Army’s regular combat readiness contingency rules” after the PLA military plane overflew the Taiwan side’s so-called “middle line of the Strait” on March 31 last year, and designated the “interception zone” from the airspace 12 nautical miles away from Taiwan island to the “middle line of the Strait”.
Yan Defa, head of Taiwan’s Defense Department, has also said that under the principle of not escalating military conflict, as long as PLA fighters cross the middle line, the Taiwan army will handle it according to the operational guidelines. Taiwan’s Defense Department has a corresponding disposal plan from the sea crossing the midline.
it is reported that the specific response measures taken by the Taiwan army, including broadcast warning, monitoring of fighter lift off and monitoring of ground missile forces, have clear disposal regulations.
it is understood that at this stage, Taiwan’s fighter planes will hang bullets when they carry out air evacuation tasks. For example, the F-16 fighter plane will be equipped with aim-120c medium range air-to-air missile, and each time it is launched, the PLA fighter plane will be led by mature senior pilots to avoid “gun brushing and misfiring”.
it is said that in order to prevent accidents caused by air accidents, the pilots of Taiwan army can not fire the “first shot” without receiving the order of the combat command of the Taiwan air force. If they violate the order, they will be immediately transferred to justice after landing.
in addition, with regard to the disposal of ground air defense missiles for PLA fighter training, Taiwan military officials said that there were training modes and operational modes for missiles. Taking PLA fighters training in airspace near southwest Taiwan and flying into the “middle line of the Strait”, for example, Taiwan’s ground air defense missiles did not open the combat mode to lock in PLA fighters. In addition, PLA UAVs have also crossed the southernmost “middle line of the Strait”, and Taiwan’s ground air defense missiles are also not deliberately locked in.
