TAIWAN HOLDS MILITARY EXERCISES SIMULATING CHINESE INVASION|春節戰備巡弋操演 模擬殲滅滲台共軍

Just days after China's Liaoning carrier was sent through the Taiwan Strait, Taiwan's armed forces are starting its most important training exercises of the year. The exercise simulated an invasion of central Taiwan by the People's Liberation Army. A combination of paratroopers and armored ground forces was dispatched in response to the hypothetical threat, eventually destroying the invaders. The training exercise simulates an invasion of central Taiwan by troops on a helicopter. The enemy forces, with red marks on their helmets, rapidly descend from the choppers. The Taiwan armed forces rapidly dispatch AH-1W Cobra combat helicopters and OH-58D armed reconnaissance helicopters to scout the situation and put pressure on the enemy. With the situation on the battlefield clear, special forces enter the field in UH-60M Black Hawk helicopters and storm the enemy's base. They are followed by a sweep of M60A3 battle tanks and CM32 "Clouded Leopard" armored vehicles. With the cover of the armored troops, the special forces destroy the enemy and repel the invasion. This was the armed forces' Lunar New Year training exercise. A highlight was Chen Pin-fen, who piloted an AH-1W combat helicopter. Chen went to the ROC Military Academy after graduating high school and was selected for further study at the Virginia Military Institute. She is Taiwan's first female combat helicopter pilot. ==CHEN PIN-FEN 602nd Air Cavalry Brigade Pilot, ROC Army== The weapons systems are more complex, we spend more time learning about them. (Why did you choose combat helicopters?) Becoming a combat helicopter pilot has always been a dream of mine. The Army also dispatched "Team Mighty Dragon" paratroopers to showcase their battle prowess. As the Lunar New Year approaches, this exercise is a show of force to prove that with the armed forces in the front lines, Taiwan can rest easy for the holiday.
