No doubt the Chinese Navy has wargamed dozens of scenarios on how to destroy the US Seventh Fleet if it ever intervenes in a Taiwan Strait invasion:

As China expands navy, US begins stockpiling ship-killing missiles
By: David B. Larter   17 hours ago

WASHINGTON – The stunning growth of the Chinese fleet over the past decade has prompted the U.S. Navy to plan a full-on buying spree of ship-killing missiles over the next five years, according to projections in the sea service’s Fiscal Year 2021 budget documents.

In his opening remarks before rolling out the Navy’s new spending request, the service’s budget director pointed directly at China’s expanding naval force as aiding U.S. budget priorities.
“China has grown their battle fleet to about 335 surface ships, and that’s occurred over the last 10 years as they’ve shifted from a build-up of their homeland defense forces and moved to the sea in an expansionist role around the globe,” Rear Adm. Randy Crites said.

“As we look to the future of even greater global trade and greater unpredictability, American naval power has never been more important.”
