The new corvette of the Taiwanese Navy will be equipped with ship-based anti-aircraft missiles of its own production

The Taiwanese naval forces announced the completion of tests of the Sea Sword II shipborne medium-range anti-aircraft missile. After being tested and evaluated by the Republic of China (Taiwan) Navy, it is ready for deployment.


This is reported by the Taiwanese newspaper The Liberty Times.

Developed by the Zhong Shan National Science and Technology Institute, the rocket is an active weapon medium-range radar-guided, capable of striking multiple air targets at once, such as anti-ship missiles and aircraft.

Sea Sword II is a naval version of the Sky Sword II air-to-air missile, which is armed with Taiwanese-made F-CK-2 Ching Kuo multirole fighters.

The Taiwanese Navy's new Tuo Chiang-class fast corvette Ta Chiang, which was launched in December last year, will be equipped with these shipborne anti-aircraft missiles of its own production. In addition, according to Janes, Sea Sword II missile launchers are supposed to replace the American Sea Chaparral anti-aircraft missile systems, which are in service with the Kang Ding class frigates of the Taiwanese Navy.

      about zips - Taiwan needs stealth corvettes - to climb the rivers. for example, up to 3 gorges and blow up the dam. the death of the corvette = the death of half of China.

            Not. Blue-white-red (top to bottom) with horizontal stripes only in Yugoslavia.
            France has the same colors, but vertical stripes
            The Netherlands has the reverse order, red on top

          And if it does, then why doesn't everyone do it?

            This is no longer a bulb, but some kind of anchor shelf ... what I think they ran the model in the pool and did not reveal any particular harm from this structure.

              Sea Cat. Passenger ships with a similar main hull design and similar dimensions operate on the Norway South Coast - Denmark line.
              The cunning island Chinese, it seems, did not bother with the hull and engines - they bought a license for both, and, without bread. Redesigned the upper deck for the installation of weapons.
              Sea Cat is a good walker. Develop a speed of up to 35 knots, work up to a wave height of 2,5-3 meters.
              The catamaran bulbs allow you to develop maximum speed with minimum water resistance.
              In the displacement position (low speed when maneuvering), the middle hull acts as the main hull, as the main "float" that keeps the structure afloat.

              PS
              The story of the alteration of the sports Me-108 into the most massive fighter of the Second World Me-109 comes to mind.

                  This is not a catamaran, and not a trimaran. A hybrid of a hydrofoil vessel, where the role of the wings is played by additional side hulls.

    Interesting catamaran. Speed ​​45 knots, two launchers for missiles of different types - subsonic and supersonic. Anti-aircraft and anti-submarine weapons are rather weak, but they will come down against surface ships.

    In the photo in the article, the head corvette-catamaran of the improved Tuo Jiang II project, with the tail number "619", was named "Tajiang". By 2022, three are to become part of the Navy, with a total of 11 ordered.

    Are they really hoping to deal with China? I think they will sweep away with one blow. This is all and counting. So that the owner does not have time to intervene. And it’s not a fact that it will fit .... Now is not the coat for the amerikosov.

      And what has the Communist Party to do with it? Not every bast in the line, as they say. As far as I remember, Chiang Kai-shek and his Kuomintang dug in at one time in Taiwan, who are not communists at all, but on the contrary - they fought Mao Zedong's communist China with all non-proletarian hatred. Why Taiwan and the United States are covering all the time, as a counterbalance to mainland communist China.

    Could voice the performance characteristics of the corvette ...

    Here's what I found:
    This new vessel design was first unveiled during TADTE 2013, the Taipei Aerospace and Defense Technology Show, in August 2013. The corvette was built by the Lung De shipbuilding corporation under the Swift Sea program and is 60,4 meters long and intended for coastal operations. The sign displayed at the exhibition indicated this:
    “To counter the growing threat across the Taiwan Strait, the ROK Navy has developed a new type of Coastal Combat Ship, the High Performance Wave Piercing Catamaran (WPC). This ship design increases the ship's mobility and provides greater technology stealth, greater capacity and better environmental adaptability. The ships are developed by the Naval Shipbuilding Development Center (NSDC) and the Ship Ocean Industries Research Center (SOIC). The Wave Piercing Catamaran (WPC) is currently being built by the Lund-De Shipbuilding Corporation. "

    This Taiwanese "The battleship Litoral" well armed for its size, with no less than 16 anti-ship missiles. The corvette catamaran can fire both Hsiung Feng II missiles and Hsiung Feng III missiles, making it a powerful ASUW platform. The HF-3 rocket is expected to have a range of 130 kilometers and is reportedly capable of reaching Mach 2, while the older generation HF-2 rocket has a range of 160 kilometers at subsonic speeds.
    In addition to anti-ship missiles, the corvette is equipped with a 76mm main cannon, 4x12,7mm machine guns and a 20mm CIWS cannon. There is no helicopter hangar, but the deck can accommodate a medium-class helicopter (10 tons). The forward movement is carried out with the help of 4 water-jet propellers.

    The main characteristics of the vessel:
    Length: 60,4 m
    Width: 14
    Depth (?): 6 m
    Maximum draft: 2,3 m
    Maximum speed: 38 nodes
    Cruising range: 2000 nautical miles
    Crew: 34 person

    What an interesting architecture of the corvette's hull .. And when the front underwater part is covered with sand and shells inhabit, how it will look and how fast it will move .. And so a sufficient trim on the bow is ensured.
