War-Gaming Taiwan: When Losing to China Is Winning | FP

Must Read

War games were used to explore the Taiwan scenario

In one scenario, China launches an all-out assault on Taiwan in 2030, destroying military bases and communications infrastructure. In another, U.S. warships are overwhelmed by missiles, torpedoes, and drones as they close in on the island. War games are not meant to predict the future or develop a single definitive strategy. Instead, they help planners explore and understand complex problems.

In 2030, Beijing reaches a deadly decision: reunification with Taiwan at any cost. For a war game to be helpful, mainly which potential conflict is played out is irrelevant. A fine-grained analysis of questions like these drives progress in the U.S. military. The war game is a safe environment for failing fast and learning to succeed.
