Taiwan introduced its improved design head missile corvette-catamaran "Tajiang" into the Taiwanese naval forces

On September 9, 2021, at the Zhongzheng Naval Base of the Navy of the Republic of China (Taiwan) in Suao (Yilan County), in the presence of the President of the Republic of China Tsai Ing-wen, a ceremony was held for the introduction of the head missile corvette-catamaran "Tajiang" of the improved design into the Taiwanese naval forces Tuo Jiang II (tail number 619). At the same time, a ceremony was held at this naval base for the introduction of the second minelayer of the Min Jiang project (with an automated system for laying sea mines) into the Taiwanese Navy. On December 4, 2018, Taiwanese media confirmed that Lung Teh Shipbuilding had won a tender to build 11 improved Tuo Jiang II corvettes and 4 Min Jiang minelayers. Taiwanese media outlets have dubbed the catamarans corvettes "carrier killers," referring to the opposition to the growing PLA navy. The ship with a displacement of 685 tons is equipped with modernized anti-ship missiles Hsiung Feng III, which have a cruising speed of about 3M and a firing range of up to 150-180 km.
