November 1, 2020, 09:00 (China Standard Time 08:00), China Beijing Province, Central Military Commission Joint Command Center bunker
The Central Military Commission was in a state of panic after losing Sun-Yang in a day. Most devastating was the fact that they deployed a large number of fighter jets to strike the 7th Mobile Corps despite opposition from the Chief Commander of the Air Force, and as a result, they lost half of the Air Force men. Also, they lost 252 jets out of the total 320 jets, including their latest J-20 and J-31, and yet no serious damage was inflicted on the 7th Mobile Corps.
The Chinese Air Force had now given up on guarding the Northeastern provinces. They instead resorted to gathering their outdated jets to protect their capital Beijing.
"What! What kind of strategy did you use?"
President Xi Jin Ping furiously glared at the Generals of the Central Military Commission.
Everyone was silent. Then Vice-President Kan Kuichou carefully spoke.
