A Potential Porcupine Defense for Taiwan Amid Rising China Threat

Main image to the post A Potential Porcupine Defense for Taiwan Amid Rising China Threat

Taiwan faces the threat of an aggressive China seeking unification through force. To strengthen its defense, experts propose the use of naval mines as a cost-effective and asymmetric warfare tactic.

Naval mines, hidden explosives placed underwater, can disrupt amphibious assaults and hinder China's superior navy. By exploiting Taiwan's shallow waters and treacherous coastline, mines can delay, disrupt, and degrade Chinese forces. They force Chinese ships to contend with the explosive threat, potentially delaying invasion plans.

However, mines are not a comprehensive solution. They pose risks to the surrounding environment and civilians, and can be difficult to clear. They can also become loose in storms and drift, leading to unexpected complications.

Taiwan has recognized the potential of naval mines and has added minelaying ships to its fleet. However, additional capabilities are needed to fully employ a naval mine defense. Experts emphasize the importance of investing in the necessary capabilities and improving readiness for mining operations to enhance Taiwan's deterrence and defense.
