– Official launch of Taiwan’s first domestic submarine

On September 28, Taiwan unveiled the first submarine produced directly on the island, which will enter service in 2025. It is also the first in a series of eight submarines, as part of the project to build a submarine force initiated by Tsai Ing-wen upon her accession to power in 2016.

The same day, the spokesperson for the Chinese Defense Ministry called a press conference, during which he asserted that “the idea of preventing the PLA from entering the Pacific Ocean is a senseless attempt,” before adding: “no matter how many weapons the DPP authorities build or buy, they will not be able to stop the tide of reunification.”
