China Panic (June 10,20) US Helping Taiwan Deploy Largest Patrol Ship to Strengthen Fight in SCS

Taiwan is expected to commission its first 4,000-tonne coastguard offshore patrol vessel early next year to strengthen the island’s presence in the disp#ted South China Sea, which has become a flashpoint amid growing confrontation in the region between mainland China and the United States.

The island will also next year start production of an advanced training plane after completing test flights later this month, as it tries to improve air force pilot training in the face of growing hostility from mainland China, officials and experts said on Monday.

The domestically developed air and sea craft could be quickly turned into defence systems during w4rtime to help safeguard the island, the experts said.
