Largest Ever invasion By Chinese Air Force: Taiwan Reports

Taiwan has reported the Chinese air force's most extensive incursion into its air defense territory, with 38 aircrafts flying in two waves on Friday as Beijing marked as the founding day of China government.

Chinese claimed Taiwan has complained about a year or more of repeated operation by China's air force near the democratically governed land, often in the southwestern part of its air defense territory close to Pratas Islands, controlled by Taiwan.

The Taiwan Defence Ministry first reported that Taiwanese fighters struggled against four Su-30 and 18 J-16 fighter jets, two nuclear-capable H-6 bombers, and anti-submarine aircraft. And in the early hour of Saturday, the ministry said a further 13 Chinese planes were involved in an operation on Friday night – 2 H-6s, 10 J-16s, and an early warning aircraft jet.

It said Taiwan also sent combat aircraft to warn the Chinese aircraft while missile systems were deploying to monitor them.

As per the map issued by the ministry, the first batch of Chinese aircraft flew in an area close to Pratas Islands, with the two bombers flying most intimate to the atoll.

The second set of aircraft flew down into the Bashi Channel that separates Taiwan from the Philippines. This critical waterway links the Pacific with the disputed South China Sea area.

China has yet to comment on its activity.

It has previously said such a fly was to protect the country's sovereignty and aimed at "collabration" between Taiwan and the USA, the island's most important international backer.

The last most significant incursion happened in June, which involved 28 Chinese air force aircraft. China's newest mission came less than a day after its government launched a strike on Taiwan's foreign minister, calling up the words of revolutionary leader Mao Zedong to denounce him as "shrilling" flies for his efforts to promote Taiwan on the international stage.

China has stepped up political and military pressure to try and force Taiwan to accept Chinese jurisdiction. Taiwan says it is an independent and free country, and we will defend its freedom and democracy.
