(STL.News) This year China sent a loud and clear message to the US Navy when the People’s Liberation Army Navy conducted several tests of its new aircraft carrier killer missiles. However, Beijing may have received a similar, and notably as clear message from Taipei. This month after the Taiwanese Navy announced that it has launched the first of its heavily armed carrier killer corvettes.
The domestically-produced vessels have been touted as a key component to the independent island nation’s defense efforts against its mainland neighbor. The corvettes, which have earned the nickname aircraft carrier killers, are armed with subsonic and supersonic missiles.
