Taiwan to build its own submarine, president vows on visit to 50-year-old vessel

“Strengthening underwater combat capabilities is most needed in Taiwan’s defence,” Tsai said during a tour of a submarine at the southern naval port of Zuoying, about 350 kilometres (218 miles) from the capital, Taipei.

“Making a submarine isn’t the problem,” said Gao Chung-hsing, vice president of the National Chung-shan Institute of Technology, a quasi-defence ministry agency responsible for military research and development.

“It is making what kind of submarine that is the problem.”
