  • PRC military theorists refer to two “island chains” along China’s maritime perimeter. The First Island Chain includes Taiwan and the Ryuku Islands, the Second Island Chain extends from Japan to Guam.
  • Taiwan Strait SAM and SRBM Coverage. This map depicts notional coveragebased on the range of land and sea-based missile systems, including advanced SAMsthat China would likely employ in a Taiwan conflict.A single PLA Navy destroyer is used to illustrate the range of sea-based SAM coverage.
