US to help Taiwan build a series of submarines

Despite China's repeated statements, the United States is not going to stop supplying military equipment and weapons to Taiwan. According to the South China Morning Post, Washington will help Taipei build submarines.


According to the publication, the United States will supply Taiwan with key technological components for the construction of submarines, or rather, three types of equipment: digital sonar systems, integrated combat control systems and periscopes. Delivery times and the amount of the contract were not disclosed.

Taiwan has launched a program to build its own underwater fleet last November. The CSBC corporation is engaged in the construction of submarines, but Taiwan has neither the experience nor the technology for building a submarine fleet. In total, it is planned to commission eight nuclear submarines, the first prototype should be ready by 2024, so Taipei is trying to get any help.

In the early 2000s, Taiwan tried to buy submarines from the United States, but Washington refused, not wanting to completely spoil relations with China, which was categorically opposed. In Beijing, Taiwan is considered one of the provinces of China. In turn, Taiwan declares its full sovereignty and readiness to defend its freedom in the event of a military attack from mainland China.

    In this situation, as now, perhaps you can add "if they have time." If China said that a war with the United States is inevitable ... The question is - when?

      I think the United States will face the fate of the late USSR, and the PRC will have the fate of the United States in the early 90s. The United States has nowhere to grow, and China's potential has not been fully tapped, so I think global business will rely on the Asian region and China as its leader. The United States will gradually begin to deflate. Nobody needs war. This is a disaster and collapse of everything. They won't let her.

        There will be no big war. The rest is debatable ...

      The States are pushing China in all available ways into an equal (otherwise we don't need it) alliance with Russia.
      8 submarines will not save Taiwan, the States will not fight for it, and these submarines can completely finish off relations between the PRC and the States.

        Neither Japan, nor Taiwan, nor South Korea, nor the Philippines will ever fight the PRC on their own, despite the conflicts. The United States simply arms its allies (assistants, junior partners, etc.) to carry out certain tasks with their hands and forces. I would not be surprised if the initiative on NNS does not belong to Taiwan itself. recourse wink

    After this action, the PRC will be delighted and will move factories from China to the United States? They will start right tomorrow! They will receive an economic response, and so the balance in trade in favor of China, all Trump's works go to waste. It looks like China will soon be disappointed in Muhamor.

    China will not let it down just like that ... it will give out one of these days, and the Americans will not like it.

    Atomic?
    After all, Pantogon does not have a single non-atomic one. And the competence in their design and construction is most likely already lost. No matter how pin dosi kam, help was not needed. lol

      Yes it is. But there are friendly Swedes, Germans and Japanese who are doing very well with non-nuclear submarines.

    Taiwan buys its Business protection from the US, however.

    How will China respond?
    There is still time, but there is not much of it ... One thing is the US AUG "crawling by", and quite another thing is several modern enemy submarines right next to it ...

      Do you know how many ocean warning and tracking systems China has? not? no one knows, they also don’t know about any traps ... China today is not the same as yesterday. and we already ... catch up.

        But several submarines with VNEU are still a challenge.

    The more often the United States tugs at the tail of the Chinese dragon, the higher the chances of a military alliance between China and the Russian Federation. what Don't mattresses understand this?

      I agree. It's strange that everything is "muddied" until it is understandable and not pleasant. It looks like a carefree life on this planet has ended. 70 years have smoked, and that's enough ... back to the basements?

        It seems that this is what is going on.
        The mattresses, being in the delusion of their "leading" status of the "world resolver", are actively dismantling the existing post-war balance of power and the principles of international law, trying to keep the whole world in a strict collar, which, for obvious reasons, is no longer possible, and therefore the fall of the "hegemon" will be accompanied by a strong "crash". yes

        How strong is China in terms of destroying the United States with a retaliatory or symmetrical strike?

          "Unacceptable Damage" is the basic setting for US troops. if the enemy's fists are full-nefig to meddle ... something like that.

            So it seems to me that if they can inflict unacceptable damage, then there will be no war. So, the rattling of rusty armor. IMHO

      Import / export of the PRC-RF and PRC-Yankees destroys all chances for a "military alliance" of the PRC-RF.

    China is firmly committed to Taiwan. Figures for 2017: 5,2 million Taiwanese visited mainland China, exports were $ 2,3 trillion, imports were $ 1,8 trillion. Last year, 15 thousand Taiwanese received higher education in the PRC So the US is far away, but China is nearby. We still have to look at how the distribution of forces is on the political Olympus. It is quite possible in 10 15 years, as a result of a referendum, Taiwan will join China. Without a single shot, if the US does not occupy Taiwan.
