A preliminary investigation by the investigation team of the headquarters of the Taiwan army and the headquarters of the Taiwan Army found that the officer surnamed Yang had not been censured by any superiors and was currently investigating the cause of his suicide.

The boat training for the accident is a preview of the Han Guang exercise to be held by the Taiwan Army on January 13. Han Guang exercise is a special name for the annual joint operation exercise of the three services of the Taiwan army. It is also a series of joint offensive and defensive exercises of the three services with the highest level, the largest number of troops participating in the exercise, the largest scale and the strongest antagonism. The first Hanguang exercise was held on June 23, 1984 in Penghu. This year, it was the Hanguang 36 exercise.

Han Guang exercise is divided into rehearsal stage, formal exercise stage and computer wargame rehearsal stage. In the rehearsal stage, the 99 brigade of the Marine Corps with the best military resources in Taiwan will play the role of imaginary enemy, simulate the Red Army attacker and amphibiously land on the beach of Taiwan army to prepare for the subsequent confrontation exercises.

This years Hanguang 36 exercise is extremely important. Last year, in order to reject reunification with military force, the Taiwan army carried out a breaking the muscles and bones organizational system reform, changing all seven mechanized strike brigades of the Taiwan army into a composite force mainly composed of combined arms battalion. This organizational reform of the Taiwan army is regarded as a political achievement of Tsai ing ing Wen and Yan Defa for rejecting reunification with military force. Therefore, in this years Hanguang 36 exercise, the Taiwan army plans to comprehensively test the operational effectiveness of the Taiwan Armys combined forces. However, the drill has not yet begun, there have been a series of homicide.

With regard to the Han Guang exercise held by the Taiwan army for a long time to deduce the rejection of reunification with military force, the Ministry of national defense of China has repeatedly stated that it is a dead end to refuse reunification with military force. On February 28, Wu Qian, a spokesman for the Ministry of national defense, clearly stressed that any act of inciting cross-strait hostility and exaggerating cross-strait confrontation will only bring disaster to Taiwan compatriots. The PLA has firm will, full confidence and sufficient ability to safeguard national sovereignty and territorial integrity.
