    Default Defending Taiwan (Republic of China)

    Taiwan’s homegrown missiles point to an evolving defense doctrine

    Entry Excerpt:

    Summary: Taiwan is increasingly a designer and producer of its own battlefield, anti-ship, and long-range land attack missiles. This commitment to the expense of homegrown missiles shows that Taiwan is not confident that the United States will supply it with what it needs for its defense. Taiwan is also attempting to have its missiles perform the missions previously performed by fighter-attack aircraft; in the face of the mainland’s enormous missile superiority, Taiwan will likely abandon fixed-wing aircraft. Eventually, Taiwan may have to adopt a decentralized, low-tech “insurgency” defense doctrine. But it is doubtful whether such a doctrine is a good match for modern Taiwan.
