Taiwan vai lançar o primeiro submarino construído internamente
September 25, 2023 -
Taiwan tenciona desenvolver e construir um frota de pelo menos oito
submarinos de ataque para melhorar a dissuasão contra a marinha chinesa.
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.
