Taiwan’s military Tuesday lifted the veil on how it would respond to a massive Chinese air attack, showing that the island still takes the risk of war very seriously despite improving ties.

Journalists were invited for the first time to a drill simulating aerial assaults on Taiwan’s major air bases and testing the military’s ability to recover quickly from such a shock.

“The drill is aimed to test our ability to repair runways as soon as possible so that fighter jets can take off should the air base be attacked,” air force spokesman Lieutenant General Pan Kung-hsiao told reporters.

The exercise involved hundreds of troops, some operating heavy engineering equipment such as bulldozers, hydraulic shovels and bomb disposal engines.
