    Taiwan tests new anti-ship missile: report

    Taiwan tested its longest range ship-to-ship missile within a month of China putting its first aircraft carrier into service, a report said Monday.

    Dubbed an "aircraft carrier killer", the missile has a range of 400 kilometres (250 miles) and is capable of achieving Mach 3.0, or triple the speed of sound, the Taipei-based United Daily News said.

    don't worry mate its either them or the Japanese or us:flame:!even if the Taiwanese fail to destroy your beloved Varyag,the Vietnamese and the Japanese are next in the queue.then of course there is our Brahmos:brahmos: the ultimate a/c killer.so it would be safe for the PLAN to keep the Varyag within the china's maritime border or otherwise there's a great risk of losing your sole a/c to any of these countries:wave::scared2:

    Not sure but it should be dual guidance i.e. Active radar and infra optics, Their have been reports about RoC testing such a dual system.

    i am sure we will give the location of your AC, he cant hide from our eye in the sky, specially the one which has radar.

    But same info can be given by Uncle just to humiliate China.

    That big AC is big target you guys should better keep the casino and put slot machine and showgirls.

    coming back to topic, US did help Taiwan in this missile, looks like MTCR has gone for good.

    quotes:,
    According to (former "vice-Defense Minister"of Taiwan)Lin Zhongbin, "the reveal of XiongFeng III was possibly aimed at releasing some (Taiwan's) internal pressure. It does not mean anything to the Mainland. On the contrary, Mainland is welcoming this move, because they want Ma Yingjiu to be reelected. This revealing of missile proves to the voters Ma Government has not been sleeping on National Defense". ...

    why we want to purchase Taiwan missile, your AC wont be coming to Indian Ocean that is for sure and if it does, you will find it in the bottom of sea, i am sure you guys have enough life boats on it for all.

    That is what I call a typical fanboy post. Chinese warships has been passing through Indian ocean for years.
    Just like indian ships has been passing through South China Sea.

    It is international water.

    Do us a favour and use some grey cells.
