Taiwan starts five days of large-scale military exercises to demonstrate its military power

Taiwan has begun five days of large-scale military exercises meant to demonstrate its ability to defend itself against any attack from mainland China. The annual drill in the Taiwan Strait includes a test of the Thunderbolt-2000 multiple rocket launch system designed to take out enemy ships before they reach shore. Tanks, artillery, and attack helicopters also pounded mock targets at sea during the war games.
