Chinese Su-35 was shot down by Taiwan’s air defense system

Taiwan’s air defense system shot down a Chinese Su-35 fighter.

Taiwan said the plane violated the border and was shot down. The pilot of the Su-35 fighter of the Chinese Air Force shot down over Taiwan managed to eject and landed in Taiwan, where he was taken prisoner.

There is no confirmation from Beijing yet, and some media outlets claim that the plane was shot down not by a Su-35, but by a J-10. There are suspicions that these are all Indian provocations, but if it turns out that the PLA plane really violated Taiwan’s border and was shot down by Taiwanese air defense, it will lead to escalation of the Sino-Taiwanese conflict.
