7. Taiwan Straight defenses / 台海防空

China caused quite a commotion by deploying the S-300 PMU-1s across from Taiwan. If they deploy PMU-2 missiles with their 195km range then the whole island will be within PLA SAM coverage.

中国部署S-300 PMU-1型防空导弹确实在海峡对岸的台湾引起了一阵骚动。如果大陆部署了射程达到195公里的PMU-2型防空导弹,整个台湾岛都会处在中国人民解放军的地空导弹覆盖范围之中。
