This analysis by retied airforce deputy commander Chang Yen-ting (張延廷) does not fill one with confidence.

“The forces committed to the defense of airfields is spread too thin over a wide area. If China were to target the eight main strategic airfields with fast-strike units, such as people on motorcycles with grenades at times when defense is lax, it would be easy to wipe out Taiwan’s main combat jets."

He also thinks the incursions into Taiwan's airspace is the Chinese strategically fucking with Taiwan saying "emergency scrambling of Taiwanese fighters is starting to have an effect on equipment maintenance and pilot fatigue. We cannot be led about by the nose by the enemy.” Chang said.

The article also cites a former military instructor saying "should Taiwan lose air superiority, the nation’s defenses would not last 48 hours."
