Taiwan will spend $ 2,5 billion on missile defense

17
The Ministry of Defense of Taiwan has published a program to strengthen the anti-missile defense, which it expects to spend $ 2,5 billion. The basis of the procurement will be local-made complexes "Tien Kung III", reports Lenta.ru with reference to Defense News.



The new ZRK will be purchased from 2015-th to 2024. It is reported that "Tien Kung III, developed by the Taiwan Zhongshan Institute of Science and Technology, can be used to protect various objects from tactical ballistic missiles, as well as for air defense." According to the ex-Minister of Defense, Khao Huachu, "the complexes can also be used to intercept promising Chinese J-20 fighter-bombers."

Although relations between Taiwan and China, which regard the island nation as part of its territory, are now noticeably warmer, Taipei still fears for the country's security. The reason for this is the growing power of China, which, among other things, has adopted the aircraft carrier "Liaoning", and is also in full swing leading the development of the J-15 carrier-based fighter and the multipurpose J-20.

In 2011, Taiwanese intelligence officers released information indicating that almost 1,6 thousand Chinese missiles of various types are aimed at the territory of the island. Taipei believes that their number in the future may increase to 1,8-2 thousand units.

      Taiwanese Chinese increase their defenses, but it is better, of course, for them to be friends with mainland China.

            -I know this reason- this is an inexplicable and mysterious passion of ragul to unowned metal, especially if it is non-ferrous .. rollers from infantry fighting vehicles and tanks, an engine and spare parts from Zhytomyr and Kuevsky repair armored factories with the equipment that was located there also disappeared. safekeeping, it’s just that it briefly leaked into the press to see the dismantling of metal stockpiles ...

    In fact, Taiwan is the same China, but not communist, but Kuomintang. Those. essentially, one nation stood on opposite sides of the barricades. But, unfortunately, the question of uniting the Chinese comes down to the question of who will win whom. This is a great tragedy when one part of the people is opposed to another.

        And in this picture of Patriot there are more common features, because he was adopted by the United States in 1982 and went through many upgrades. Probably still he was taken as a basis.

    Apparently the Taiwanese are afraid of China, and North Korea is a cause of concern in the region.

    They are well aware that China will never give up claims to the island, and so they are twitching as far as the economy can.

      What's the point? If the Chinese decide, then resist Taiwan for several hours. And an hour more than an hour less is not very important.

          IMHO, If it were not for the Yankees, who really do not want to strengthen China, then perhaps China and Taiwan would be able to unite, because China offers Taiwan a high level of independence when unified - it practically means only a way out from under the auspices of the United States.

    America around the world creates hotbeds of tension and divides the countries of Vietnam, Korea, Serbia, Ukraine. How it comes around and responds. The first swallow (Ferguson) is already there.

    Y-yes. I support the opinion of the members of the forum. USA. in relation to China and Taiwan, they act on the principle of "divide and conquer". Two allied states, one of which has a human resource, and the other does not suit the economic component in the field of electronics mattress in any way, that is creating tension - helping Taiwan to make air defense. In general, it is natural for any state to create a normal air defense system, it would be strange if they did not do this.
