Commercial ships used by the Chinese Military
Roll-On Roll-Off ferries, RoRo is short, are commercial ships used by the Chinese military in its drill of the Invasion of Taiwan. Roll-On Roll-Off ships can become critical assets during an invasion of the island for two main reasons. First, they increase four folds the Chinese navy’s sea-lift capability. Second, they blur the line of what is a war ship and what is a civilian ship, creating a tactical ambiguity that could make an invasion of Taiwan easier for China. In this video we analyze how RoRo ferries are essentially China’s secret weapon in supporting a possible invasion of Taiwan and we will try to answer two major questions: What are the sea-lift and amphibious capabilities of these vessels? How could China benefit by blurring the line of what is a war ship and what is a civilian ship?
