Taiwan’s anti-aircraft stealth missile boats bulk service team taking shape
Taiwan Guanghua VI missile squadron into the military and large ship with the aircraft carrier
5 14, Kaohsiung, Taiwan shipping companies in its first 11 factory formally (No. 72) and 12 (No. 73) “Guanghua 6″ missile delivery Taiwan’s navy.
Although the “Guanghua 6″ has become the military, but because of the design cycle is too long, there are still some out of tune with the stealth design shortcomings.
Taiwan Navy missile boat has always been an important part of assault force. In order to replace the old “Seagull”-class missile boats, and further enhance the surface anti-ship capabilities, Taiwan’s navy is stepping up the construction of the new “Guanghua 6″ missile. According to Taiwan’s “China Times” on May 15 revealed that Taiwan’s navy has taken delivery of 12 “Guanghua 6″ missile, the first “Guanghua 6″ missile squadron commissioning ceremony held on the 18th.
“Guanghua 6″ bulk service
5 14, Kaohsiung, Taiwan shipping companies in its first 11 factory formally (No. 72) and 12 (No. 73) “Guanghua 6″ missile to deliver Taiwan’s navy. Taiwan’s navy, “the Ministry of Education standards,” Commander Li Hao and Tan Taiping, general manager of Taiwan shipping companies signed the relevant documents referred to. Li Hao said, “(Taiwan) on the basis of the existing Navy, gradually push up the independent shipbuilding program, the lean system naval force to ensure smooth flow of cross-strait security and foreign shipping.” As received “Guanghua 6″ missile has reached 12, the Taiwan Navy on May 18 in the left camp naval squadron held the first commissioning ceremony, “demonstrating the ability of Taiwan’s navy in the sea has made progress.”
“Guanghua 6″ Taiwan’s R & D for many years a new generation of missile boats, similar to the French, “Lafayette” class stealth frigate design, can carry 4 “Hsiung Feng” -2 anti-ship missiles, fire-ship attack far more than “The Seagull” class missile boats. The first “Guanghua 6″ Squadron, marking the Taiwan Navy has a team equipped with 48 advanced anti-ship missile hit a cluster of offshore fast, while the use of stealth design, but also conducive to “Guanghua 6″ concealed the enemy launched the “missile raid . ”
with a large ship with the aircraft carrier
Since the introduction of self and external bottlenecks frequently large surface warships, Taiwan has stealth missile boats as a “fat force direction, “and continue to explore the complete set of tactics. Back in 2007, Taiwan began to secretly promote a code-named “Herd” of anti-aircraft project in preparation for five years to create a “mixed anti-aircraft team.” Once the Taiwan Strait, “something”, the Taiwan Navy ships in the south and north ends of guards the Taiwan Strait, “Kidd” class destroyers, the “success” class frigate launched long-range, high-speed flight, “Treasures”-3 missile, ” Guanghua 6 “missile is subsonic timely launch of the” Treasures “-2 missiles, the” speed with “cluster missile attack” enemy aircraft carrier. ” As Taiwan to speed up the “Hsiung Feng” -3 missile research and development process, and “Guanghua 6″ missile batch service, the Taiwan Navy’s “The Wind” program is taking shape.
although “Guanghua No. 6″ has been into the military, but because of the design cycle is too long, there are still some out of tune with the stealth design shortcomings. For example, “Guanghua 6″ missile boats bow and stern of the boat’s cannon is still manually operated open-style design, which largely destroyed the missile’s overall stealth effect. 2008, “Guanghua 6″ prototype boat had lost power in a typhoon and stranded, which in turn exposed the harsh natural conditions, restrictions on the activities of small vessels.
Although the development of advanced stealth missile boats to face many difficulties, but as a shortcut to enhance the strength of surface ships, Taiwan will still spare no efforts in stealth missile boats who, long ago exposed by the media of the latest generation of Taiwan stealth missile program that is evidence.
