What the hell is this? Join US-China exercise? ;)

Also, something very bizarre is happening:

From 26/01/2021 to 27/01/2021, Chinese and US forces conducted working meetings to discuss US prisoners of war and missing people and their bodily remains. The two sides conducted deep discussion, demonstrating China's humanitarian commitment towards the US.

What in the world? Did PLA sink an US SSN?
No, no, and no! Those are Korean War/WWII casualties like U.S. pilots who crashed in China.

Xi Yazhou and his friend Mr Su discussed this "CNY present" again in their

(about 50 minutes in) among other topics. Mr Su described it as "will be visible from coastal Taiwan" or "bring Taiwan's lights to everyone.", so it sounds like some sort of overfly or intrusion into Taiwan airspace.

If I were to guess, with WZ-8?

The thing that intrigues me is I've gone back and listen to older podcasts and Mr Su have made many big statements such as "there's a Chinese PMC, registered in Hong Kong and have several retired US generals on payroll which looks after BRI project security issues". If he was making up shit to gain credibility then he could've easily claimed the ABM test was the CNY present, yet he's adamant that it was unrelated.

Isn't that just Blackwater and Eric Prince?

Not WZ-8. My guess is H-6 with either J-16 or Su-35 escort. Supposedly WZ-8 has already trespassed one of the military installations in Taiwan (not on the main island, so maybe Penghu?) without detection. The goal this time is supposedly a show of force, and if you use an high altitude reconnaissance plane it defeats the purpose.

Also keep in mind that they only have plans for the so called CNY present. Whether it happens depends on a lot of factors. Nothing is set in stone.

Isn't it Tianwen-1 getting into Mars orbit the gift? Since it is timed intentionally for CNY.

I doubt the mainland will launch a provocation on Taiwan or such a "strong" showing of force that it may escalate to war during CNY. Those rumours sound like they are bs and covered by the old "it's just a plan and we may not do it" cop out.

WZ-8 has flown over Taiwan so many times the CCP has more or less admitted it and furthermore even disclosed it which is pretty surprising given how important it is for SCS security and any Taiwan scenario.

H-6x with whatever loaded has also been disclosed from test single stage to orbit crafts to intended operation with WZ-8, to air launched ballistic missiles/HGVs.

Considering everything a new year's gift is the Tianwen-1 reaching Mars orbit.

So I guess nothing particular will happen. Maybe that's better. Leave it for the next provocation by Tsai.

These guys don't know what they're talking about or were just hoping to hype up some crazy event. The real new year gift was the Tianwen-1 entering Mars orbit.
