I find it amusing that Taiwan's claim on "我西南空域“ (Our South-Western Air Territory), translated in English as The Southwestern ADIZ, lies just zero to tens of km from Mainland shorelines.

Moving up North, the ADIZ actually inculde land mass in Fujian, Zhejiang and Shanxi provinces. Technically any PLAAF jets taking off in Xiamen city, Fuzhou city etc enters Taiwan's ADIZ the moment their landings wheels leave the runways.

If Mainland China will to reciprocally declare a second ADIZ that covers Taiwan island, then Taiwan's aircraft would be breaching the Mainland's ADIZ 365 days in a year.

You should read the article first before posting it . The exercise use weapon that does not exist today or will be in the future in other word using "vaporware" excerpt

Furthermore, the air force that fought in the simulated conflict isn’t one that exists today, nor is it one the service is seemingly on a path to realize. While legacy planes like the B-52 bomber and newer ones like the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter played a role, many key technologies featured during the exercise are not in production or even planned for development by the service.

Yep. The systems the US used are a wishlist for the future, and ultimately I dont know if they said anything if China had improved systems as well?

So did they use a 2030 US force against a 2021 China force to get these results? Because I dont think that the military balance of US versus China will turn against China from now on.

I have read that the systems the US wants to introduce to counter China will come up around 2025 so we will see what happens. However I am sceptical that China wont introduce radical new capabilities as well.
