United States were to defend Taiwan from a Chinese Invasion
If the United States were to defend Taiwan from a Chinese invasion, it would likely be American fighters and bombers, not warships, that would turn the tide of the conflict.
In a 165-page report released by the CSIS, entitled “The First Battle of the Next War: Wargaming a Chinese Invasion of Taiwan,” they outline the outcomes of 24 wargame scenarios in which China launches a full-scale invasion in 2026. Leveraging the full breadth of unclassified information about each nation’s respective military capabilities, stockpiles, and doctrine, the project team played each scenario through the end of the heaviest fighting, and the results were largely positive for those in the West… though positive is a subjective term.
