الغواصة التايوانية محلية الصنع

September 25, 2023 - تخطط تايوان لتطوير وبناء أسطول يضم ما لا يقل عن ثماني غواصات هجومية لتعزيز الردع ضد البحرية الصينية.

Taiwan, which China claims as its own territory, has made the indigenous sub programme a key part of an ambitious project to modernise its armed forces as Beijing stages almost daily military exercises to assert its sovereignty.

Taiwanese admiral Admiral Huang Shu-kuang, who is leading the programme, said a fleet of 10 submarines – which includes two Dutch-made submarines commissioned in the 1980s – will make it harder for the Chinese navy to project power into the Pacific.
