Taiwan’s Ministry of National Defense reported on Saturday that three Chinese PLA Chengdu J-10 “Vigorous Dragon” combat jets crossed into their air defense identification zone (ADIZ) while one CH-4 UCAV crossed over the Taiwan Strait’s median line. Over the past year, the Chinese military has frequently carried out operations such as these as a form of military pressure on the island.
