    On April 19, the PLA disbanded the Strategic Support Force and created the Information Support Force, while also establishing the Space Force and Cyber Force. As a result, the PLA has changed from a "five services (軍種)(Army, Navy, Air Force, Rocket Force, Strategic Support Force) + one specialty(兵種) (Joint Logistics Support Force)" to a "four services (Army, Navy, Air Force, Rocket Force) + four specialties (Space Force, Cyber Force, Intelligence Support Force, Joint Logistics Support Force)" structure. China's intention to disband the only eight-year-old Strategic Support Force and create new units for each area is to catch up with the U.S. military's warfighting capabilities. In other words, China seems to be seeking to strengthen its surveillance, reconnaissance, and intelligence capabilities, emphasizing the fact that whoever controls the electromagnetic sphere controls the battlefield, as the war in Ukraine demonstrated, while prioritizing the ability of specialized units in charge of intelligence, space, and cyber to play an independent role. South Korea should be mindful that these moves by the PLA could have implications for the security of the Korean Peninsula. Therefore, the ROK military, military-related research organizations, and private think tanks should continue to monitor the trends and activities of the PLA's new units and prepare countermeasures.
