Last week, China conducted an “innovative joint operation” where Chinese warplanes flew in opposite directions around Taiwan.
New Su-35 fighter jets flew with H-6K strategic bombers south of Taiwan, and J-11 fights flew with KJ-200 early warning aircraft north of Taiwan.
These operations involved two theatre commands for exercises that involved early warning systems, detection and assaults.
