Spite to Beijing: the United States will sell technology of construction of submarines to Taiwan

25
The US Department of State has approved the licenses needed to sell technology to Taiwan, which is required when developing and building submarines, reports TSAMTO with reference to Agence France-Presse.


One of Taiwan's submarines is SS 791 Hai Shih (former US SS 478 Cutlass type Tench built 1945 of the year. Transferred to the Taiwan Navy in 1973 year).

According to analysts, the actions of Washington will inevitably cause protests of Beijing, which considers Taiwan to be its territory. Earlier, Beijing has already protested, saying that the United States should cease official exchanges with Taiwan in order not to harm Chinese-American relations.

The Taiwan Navy in March 2017 reportedly “signed with the National Chung-Shan Institute of Science and Technology, NCSIST and the shipbuilding company CSBC a memorandum of understanding on the joint development of the project and the construction of national submarines ". About $ 95,34 million will be allocated for the development of the project.

Total for fleet By 2028, it is planned to build 8 non-nuclear submarines.

To date, Taiwan has no experience in the construction of submarines, and for a long time has been waiting for US assistance in this matter. Now the Taiwan authorities seem to receive this support.

    I have the same reason to worry. The United States has not built non-nuclear submarines since 60g. Because what level of technology there is already understandable.

      It's not about the level, although the technology of the 80s of any third countries can transfer, it's about independence from the Chinese in this territory ... The idea is to create a combat-ready army under the auspices of the USA!

        Taiwan already has a powerful army for the 20 millionth state.

          How many minute this "powerful army" can hold out against China?

        It's not about the level. The fact is that SELL. And we basically GIVE.

          Yes, you sir, measure everything with money. For the United States in this matter, the financial side is not a priority at all. There is a deliberate creation of a pretext for a military conflict between China and Taiwan, which in the long run, the United States is only at hand.

      They are building a Nehai, the Chinese must learn to search for American submarines on someone. And here everything is nearby. Free training ground. They need to shove our anti-submarine helicopters, planes and destroyers. At the same time, transfer all the reconnoitered SOSUS documentation - let them sculpt acoustic networks on the coast. American boats can easily be caught in them.

      I agree, knowing the US, they are even reluctant to transfer technology to NATO allies. Will they transfer the technology of sonar, sonar, torpedoes, or cruise missiles? It seems to me that not, but without this a submarine is diving scrap metal.
      I think so.

      By the way, the mattresses leased the Swedish NEATOM submarine. So I think they have the building technology

        The statement is highly controversial. This is tantamount to saying that having rented a car in Spain, I have the technology for making this car.

    I think the Chinese comrades are not waiting with patience for the receipt of these documents in Taiwan ... to get acquainted with them.

      After receiving the documents, Taiwan will only have to wait for accession to greater China as a new province

    Well, so what with TGO, even if technologies are sold - the possibility of implementing projects on them is negligible .... they will try to understand what is painted there for another three years.

    Yeah, China was just scared. They have long learned how to build their own submarine fleet, which means they can fight submarines.
    And Taiwan will spend at least five years from the moment technology is received and until the construction of the first submarine ...
    And here it’s not worthwhile to guess in my opinion for a year to come - the situation around is already tense to the limit. At any time, Trump can decide that everyone is afraid of such a cool pepper, and we - that the pepper can be fried ..... And it starts ...

    Taiwanese need the help of an American company (the one that helped fix the joint for the Spaniards, who had overweighted their submarines by 150 tons and ended up with unmeasured extra expenses ...) in the main thing in the design and construction of submarines - weight control! Well, equipment with weapons, everything is there, including. American "daughters" of Europeans. Taiwan submarines:

    And what, the DPRK Hwasong-14 and Hwasong-15 have ceased to be ICBMs? Or Eun personally cut off the extra step with a hacksaw ??? And what kind of mania is it that someone is to spite something? Well, let's give him a couple of thousand of our nuclear weapons, Spite. ICBM technology, too, in spite. Then you can share zemlyotska, up to Lake Baikal inclusively, or up to the Urals, so that they have something to grow and not starve, but breed like rabbits ... To spite the Americans, and then to spite us ... Let’s hand it out, you are generous to us. ..

    China may not have been scared, but anyway, not everyone has a neighbor (far from friendly) who is strengthening their military power. And this, of course, will trigger a response from China.
    Looking at the actions of Trump as president, I personally have more and more asserted that he is not quite adequate as a leader. He says one thing, does something completely different. He talks about improving relations with China and immediately introduces prohibitive duties on Chinese goods. Doesn’t he understand that there will be the same answer? Prepares for negotiations with the DPRK and immediately teases China, deciding to put technology to Taiwan, knowing full well what kind of relationship between the PRC and Taiwan ???

      Why is not adequate Trump gave the whole year to China to solve the problem with the DPRK nuclear weapons. Beijing decided not to bother believing that America would somehow resolve itself. The United States also did not sit in vain; diplomats worked with potential allies. And the result is that the rhetoric of Pyongyang greatly diminished and the PRC made it clear that they would not sit aside.

    And you can look at this news from a different angle. When there is nothing more to trade, they trade with what is - the remnants of past glory. Doesn’t resemble anything? During the collapse of the USSR, everything went on sale - state secrets, military secrets, everything.
