A victory for Taiwan with Beijing failing to seize control of the island. Both sides taking on huge losses of both troops and equipment. The scenario is the result of a war game simulation by a Japanese think tank.

The game visualizes an attack by land and sea. The year — set to 2026.

On one side is China. On the other: Taiwan, the U.S., and Japan.

After a two week simulation battle, 40,000 Chinese soldiers were killed or wounded. China lost more than 150 warships, including two carriers and about 170 warplanes.

The other side wins, but with a heavy cost.
