An article was published on the pages of the British edition of The Times, which predicted possible scenarios for the development of the situation in the event that a war broke out between the United States and China over Taiwan.
The forecast was based on data from the Washington think tank, writes ura.news.
In the worst case scenario for the US, the US Army could lose up to 50% of its military aviation. Experts note that the United States in the conflict with China will not be unambiguously the strongest side. In a month of fighting, the loss of the US Air Force and Navy can reach about 900 military aircraft, which is a catastrophic situation. Whether this will force the US to withdraw its support for Taiwan is not specified in the publication.
It is worth noting that the United States, although it recognizes the concept of “one China”, nevertheless continues to support Taiwan, declaring that it will not allow Chinese power to come to Taiwan on the condition of destroying the democracy that is developing there.
