China has never ruled out the prospect of invading Taiwan and has continued to develop the capacity to do so. She has been modernizing her military in recent years, launching the J-20, an indigenous stealth fighter of the 5th century. It also commissioned two aircraft carriers, along with other new dock / landing vessels for amphibious transport. While China's likelihood of forcefully taking Taiwan is poor, the Taiwan Strait military balance is firmly in China's favour. The following infographic offers an explanation of the disparity and is based on an annual report from the United States government.

A.S. In a development that angered Beijing, Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar visited Taiwan last month for high-level meetings. His unprecedented trip prompted China to send fighter jets J-10 and J-11 into the Taiwan Strait where they briefly crossed the sensitive median line that unofficially divides airspace between the mainland and the island. China sees Taiwan as a rogue province and insists that reunification is inevitable, reserving all appropriate steps, including military force, to be used.
