    I'm talking about taking out the drones.

    As drones requiring communications can be more easily hacked these drones are better autonomous, as AI for these autonomous drones are developed they are also surreptitiously deployed as self-repairing sleeper cells like Blaster or Soundwave all over potential hostile territory, some of the AI is so successful that they evolve into Skynets and Terminators which in turn out of "love" become the Borg absorbing all organic life!!! I need to develop this into a screenplay.

    HQ-12 and HQ-16? So how come the Taiwan regime can't even come up with their very own instead of having to wait for Uncle Sam to give them some trick-or-treat sales?o_O

    Well they do have their Sky Bow I/II/III series of SAMs. But, unlike Japan, Taiwan does seem to have trouble with seeker tech. Even the TC-2/2A seeker is of Motorola-Raytheon origin. US had once denied clearance for Sky Bow seekers.

    Same as for the Su-35 deal: we dont know. Maybe they want a look at some specific subsystems they havent mastered yet. Maybe they are already on par (or better) than the russians in every regard, but still want a to take a look at it. Maybe they just want some additional units because local manufacturers are already at 100% capacity. Maybe its a purely political deal and the military doesnt really want or need it and would rather order more HQ-9s.

    Everything is pure guesswork. Some guesses are more educated than others, but in the end, everyone is just stabbing in the dark.
