(The Diplomat, By Rick Joe) The Republic of China Air Force (ROCAF) faces several shortcomings that may prevent it from holding against the People's Liberation Army in the event of a Mainland Chinese invasion of Taiwan. Instead of expanding in the same way as the PLAF, however, the ROCAF could expand asymmetrically and challenge China in a different aspect. While the PLA will likely expand its capabilities through technological advancements in the coming years, we do not yet know if they will address their conventional shortcomings and develop new ways of addressing those gaps. <Accessed 2019-05-21>
