Last Saturday, January 23, China held a "dress rehearsal" of the war with the United States over Taiwan, writes Forbes.

Thus, the American magazine commented on the sending of H-6K bombers equipped with YJ-12 anti-ship missiles by Beijing towards the island. The publication notes that at the same time in the region was the American aircraft carrier Theodore Roosevelt.

According to the magazine, the bombers are needed to attack US ships, as well as prepare for landing on the island. "And this war, if and when it starts, may start with Chinese bombers heading for Taiwan, as it was on Saturday," the newspaper writes.

The magazine notes that in the air, the H-6K was accompanied by J-16 fighters and a Y-8 patrol aircraft.

"China is armed with more than 200 H-6 units. It is safe to assume that many of them will take part in the air war for Taiwan, which will probably also include strikes on US bases in the region," the newspaper writes.

In January, Breaking Defense, referring to the statement of chief of staff U.S. Army General James McConville, said that to counter the Chinese threat in the Asia-Pacific region of the United States army will use only the available resources, including resources from Army Prepositioned Stocks (APS), the Navy, army watercraft, which was previously planned to disband, and from the experimental rocket group, able to work in a multi-domain conditions of warfare.
