Taiwan is raising its defense budget by 14 percent

But what weapons should it try to obtain?

    Taiwan’s defense situation is awful. Good thing for them the PLA is thoroughly corrupt and so the closest thing it’ll ever do to an invasion is a war game.

    Taiwan needs to put all that money into maintenance. Their maintenance infrastructure is a joke. Hugely corrupt and dysfunctional. Half their shit doesn't work.

    Seriously stop buying weapons and just maintain your shit like a competent first world nation already.

      Agreed. Also they should focus on becoming a porcupine, turning the island into basically a death trap for invaders.

        Taiwan might refuse to learn from the lessons of Azovstal but other small nations might not. Singapore comes to mind, they're already the size of Azovstal. I'd assume they're already riddled with bunkers, they'll probably take the lessons of Azovstal deeply to heart and modify their existing defenses to account for it.

        I'd hate to try and take modern Singapore. It'd be even worse if they turned it into a new modern fortress, it'd be utterly impregnable.

                I remember my experience of HK was me and my Dad got the train from the airport, and then switched at some point to a different line. We were heading for a hotel in Central that overlooked Victoria Park, so we ended up emerging from a metro station somewhere in Central, I want to say Causeway Bay station on Hennessy Road. Anyway, at the time I'd had little experience of big cities, I was just a boy from rural bongistan. Coming out of that station onto the street was fucking mindblowing, one of those formative moments that you never forget. Your whole life is filled with snapshots of moments that are so striking and defining that they stick with you, for good or for bad, and this was one of them.

    A Lee-Enfield rifle and a thousand rounds for every adult citizen (15+), a Stinger and a dozen reloads for every 10 adult citizens, and a dozen NLAWs for every 20 adult citizens. When China invades signal your new 16.4 million strong militia to arm and either storm the beaches, or go innahills and prepare for the gorilla campaign (as their pre-war training and direction instructed them to) and get the smug look ready.

    If you couple the armaments and cultural shift with signaling from the US that we will defend Taiwan, invading the island becomes a retarded proposition. China would necessarily be the aggressor and (similar to Putin’s folly) would manufacture all the consent that could be desired from US security state to take any measure that could be necessary. China would be waging world war 3 and possibly losing a D-day tier invasion to take (at best) a blasted cinder. The US would then starve and nuke China until it surrendered.

        1) I think the current British government and the new PM (whoever it turns out to be) will be desperate enough for ANYTHING else on the front pages in a few weeks time that they'd consider that a huge win for them.
        2) After the war can we sell them Opium and make them sign 'unequal treaties' again? We could use the money and it would be hilarious.

        It'd be safe to assume that everyone in the APAC region would join in. China is a big and dangerous foe but all their neighbors hate them and would leap on the opportunity to kick them when they're down. Vietnam would be pouring over the border in a heartbeat.

        The main powers would be the USA, Australia, India and South Korea. Japan's demographics are beyond fucked, they have even less combat experience than the Chinese and every time the Japanese Army or Navy does anything they are kept away from combat zones because they literally run away in fear if they hear gunshots.

        I genuinely have no idea why people on PrepHole think China is a joke but Japan is a secret military superpower like its the 1930s lmao.

            Cool they have a good navy but their ground forces are still a joke. And btw, almost all of Japan is in on the joke. Literally nobody outside of Online nationalists and Shinzo Abe has any respect for the armed forces, the youth have no interest in joining, and morale is medium at best. It's Germany tier at best, but it's damn near worse on every level.

            As we are learning from the current way in Ukraine, having huge and modern forces doesn't guarantee success. That's not to say the Chinese will win, they won't. But the Idea that Japan is gonna magically become 1930s military giant again as soon as china and the usa go to war when they lack the desire, culture or even the bare essentials like demographics to do so is legit delusional and shows a complete lack of understanding of modern Japan.

    None. They should invest that money into overhauling their shit-tier administration, logistics and training establishments, and start paying their soldiers decent wages.

    They mostly need basic shit like more full time soldiers and arms that infantry can use. The only other equipment that would functionally help them would be stuff that makes it hard for China to move or react to Taiwanese resistance, so like maybe subs that focus on hitting supply convoys and troop transports.

    Diesel Swedish submarines capable jets with iron dome.

    The submarines would be nearly impossible to detect and could take out shipping and ports, essentially shutting down the global economy that relies on China. Since China uses it's militia as a civilian fleet, it's justifiable to simply sink any ship with a Chinese flag, including freighters. This would add huge economic pressure and also make it impossible to for China to make a sea landing.Chinese product importers would be hassling China to stop the war so they could continue trading with them. China has nuclear submarines, so the much quieter diesel submarines would essentially hunt them down making sneak attacks impossibles.

    Anti air fighters and missiles would stop China from dominating the skies, F-35's, but also anti missles batteries like the Iron dome would stop China from simple spamming rockets.

    Taiwan isn't going to fight a land war, but a sea and air battle with China. Cyber security is a top as well.
