According to lawmaker Lin Yu fang, Taiwan plans to deploy its own cruise missiles by the end of this year. Lin said Taiwan started producing the new missiles after acquiring key components needed for assembly. The new missiles have a range of 800 kilometers, capable of reaching Shanghai, Hong Kong and coastal cities in between. In 2008, Taiwan ordered production of 300 missiles as a partial counter to 1,300 ballistic missiles China placed opposite Taiwan's coastline. Neither country has a proven, reliable defense against each other's missiles. The Chinese ballistic missiles can saturate Taiwan's limited air defense capability, while Taiwan's cruise missiles can penetrate China's air defense systems.
After 19 years, India has once again leased a nuclear-powered attack submarine from Russia. The Nerpa, which NATO classifies as an Akula II attack submarine, departed Russian waters on August 20th bound for India. Once the boat arrives, it will be rechristened INS Chakra and begin sea trials. The ten year lease provides time for India to exploit the Akula II for crew training and guidance in constructing its own nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarines. A squadron of three is planned. The Akula II - and India's conventionally powered submarines -- can launch torpedoes and cruise missiles. India has purchased some of the most advanced underwater-launched cruise missiles in existence.
