Taiwan lanzará su primer submarino producido localmente

September 25, 2023 - Taiwán espera desplegar al menos dos submarinos desarrollados localmente para 2027 con el fin de fortalecer su capacidad de disuasión contra la armada china y proteger sus líneas clave de suministro.

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.
