Taiwan Navy announces "erroneous" missile launch towards China

32
Information Agency France-Presse with reference to the representative of the naval forces of Taiwan (Republic of China) reports that the Taiwanese Navy ship "erroneously" launched a supersonic rocket in the direction of the People's Republic of China. The submission states that the Syunfeng III rocket with a declared range of 300 km approximately in 3: 10 (MSK) was launched from a rocket ship located in the area of ​​one of the naval bases of the Republic of China (Taiwan).


Taiwan Navy announces "erroneous" missile launch towards China


As a result, as it turned out, the rocket flew towards mainland China, but, flying no more than 75 km, it fell into the sea in the Penghu archipelago (Pescadorian islands), which Taipei considers to be the territory of the Republic of China (Taiwan).

The population of the archipelago is approximately 100 thousand people. In connection with the launch of a rocket in this direction, the primary threat came precisely against the inhabitants of Penghu, controlled by Taiwan.

The Taiwanese Navy said it was investigating the incident. And in the course of the investigation, it was found out that the launch of the rocket "was not conducted with the practice adopted by the country's Navy."

Official Beijing has not yet commented on the launch of the Taiwanese rocket in the direction of the PRC.

    "mistakenly" launched a supersonic missile in the direction of the People's Republic of China

    This is how wars begin. Any "mistake" in this region can lead to bad consequences. A strange "mistake".

    Taiwan - formal an administrative unit of the PRC, whose territory is actually controlled by a partially recognized Republic of China and has never been controlled by the PRC.

      In Syria, when our navies stood in a linear fashion, they also accidentally launched lionfish. Shot down! China is provoked now ... (in the US, the PRC has under a trillion dollars in storage)
      After all, they will write off scum ...

        God forbid you see a tanker in battle,
        Any tankers, especially ours,
        It’s hard to please where will ebashit.

      This is no longer a mistake, but rather a Freudian reservation. The spirit of war is in the air ..., which means that the number of provocations is increasing.

      Well, direct excitement. And by all means "erroneous" must be put in quotes. Of course erroneous, with whom it does not happen. What the Taiwanese have forgotten about mainland China. Erdogan is not in power there to "mistakenly" shoot

        obligatory "erroneous" must be put in quotes

        In this region, mistakes without quotes simply should not be. Moreover, American ships are spinning in the South China Sea.

          Well, what exactly did everyone want? !!? The region is teeming with representatives of the Navy of various countries ... And as the saying goes: "If at the beginning of the play there is a gun hanging on the wall, then (by the end of the play) it should fire." (C)
          So, we will look ...
          It is only thought that the end of the play will be for the whole of humanity ...
          Good day!

    In Taiwan, they are now apparently praying that this rocket would not become a "signal" and on this signal, the PRC would not start an operation to "enter" Formosa into a "peaceful" China

    "And in the course of the investigation, it was found out that the launch of the missile" was not carried out with the practice adopted in the country's Navy. "

    Yeah, the captain accidentally sat down on the "START" button.

      Likely, for a long time exercises with live firing were not carried out.
      And it’s good that the rocket didn’t hit anywhere and there were no casualties.
      It is unlikely that in China because of this case they will get excited. Here the second such error can not understand.

    As always, the characteristics of the rocket are overstated! Xionfeng 3 (literally Strong Wind 3) is a Taiwanese surface-to-surface supersonic anti-ship cruise missile developed by the Zhongshan Institute of Science and Technology. Adopted by the Taiwan Navy in May 2011. These missiles are capable of speeds up to 2300 km / h and hit targets at ranges up to 80 nautical miles (about 150 km). Xunfeng 3 anti-ship missiles are designed to fight the Chinese aircraft carrier Shi Lan (formerly Varyag), built according to project 1143.6 and purchased from Ukraine in 1998. China probably tracked the launch of the missile, there is no radio because of the absence of a threat!

    Such "mistakes" are unacceptable because they can lead to serious consequences, and relations between Taiwan and China are already tense.

    "The population of the archipelago is about 100 thousand people. In connection with the launch of a rocket in this direction, the primary threat came precisely against the inhabitants of Penghu, controlled by Taiwan."

    100 thousand people - the population of the whole archipelago with its army and navy, which allows itself to launch a rocket in the direction of China. Yes, more people live in our tiny Gatchina, not to mention the districts of St. Petersburg, there are 300-350 people in each district of thousands. And they say that Russia is underpopulated ..

      Direct analogy with the caliber suggests itself. There, they also thought 300 km, and the thinkers started up and began to see a little. 1500 km was not a problem. Maybe it’s important who lets it in? smile

    It seems like you decided to use Taiwan to contain China. But the question is, will Taiwan remain as a geographical concept as a result of such containment?
