This is the annual Han Kuang PRC-defense drill.
1 Kiowa Warrior crash killing both crew
1 zodiac flipped killing 2 marines (probably will be 3)
1 suicide by a senior officer
Apparently this exercise has a very checkered past, but this is a particularly bad year. Does this speak to a very ill level of training (still using conscripts)? Has the armed forces funding continued to be cut?
Does 'Han Kuang' means Light of the Han? Does that sound like a level of ethno-nationalism that even the PRC won't pull of?
