The US simulated the consequences of China’s attack on Taiwan

Games simulating China’s operation against Taiwan were held by employees of the Pentagon and the analytical Center for Strategic and International Studies of the United States.

“In 18 of the 22 rounds of the game… Chinese missiles sank a significant portion of the US and Japanese surface fleets and destroyed hundreds of aircraft,” the agency said, citing data from former White House analyst Mark Kansian.

According to him, during the last game, a four-week conflict was simulated, in which the US lost 900 aircraft. China destroyed the Taiwanese navy and half of the island’s air force, but lost 150 ships itself. At the same time, the United States eventually managed to defend the independence of Taiwan.


As part of the games, hypotheses are being tested that Japan will grant the United States expanded rights to use American bases and that the parties to the conflict will renounce the use of nuclear weapons.


Kansian noted that so far the games have not considered scenarios in which China will be able to establish control over the island.
