Three Y-8 aircraft from China entered Taiwan’s ADIZ Friday.
Three Chinese Y-8 aircraft intruded into the southwest sector of Taiwan’s Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ) Friday (Dec. 4), according to the Ministry of National Defense.
Y-8 planes spotted Friday were of three different types, an anti-submarine aircraft (Y-8 ASW), an electronic warfare plane (Y-8 EW) and a tactical reconnaissance aircraft (Y-8 RECCE).
The latest incursions amounted to the third such incident this week, showing no letup in what has generally been interpreted as a campaign of intimidation by China. In October, the military recorded ADIZ violations on 20 out of 31 days and in November on 22 out of 30 days.
