– US plans to create a drone “hellscape” off China’s coasts ignore China’s ability to create more drones, faster, and with greater capabilities than the US;

– A recent US arms deal made with the administration of the Chinese island province of Taiwan includes negligible numbers of over-priced drones proven ineffective on modern battlefields;

– Russian industry is producing more drones of greater capabilities than those sold to Taiwan per month (and in some cases, per day) and at vastly cheaper costs;
