Taiwan to aim 50 medium-range missiles at China: Report
TAIPEI (AFP) - Taiwan is set to produce 50 medium-range missiles next year that will target military bases in southeast China, a media report said on Monday.
The article came after former defence minister Michael Tsai revealed in a recently published book that the island successfully created medium-range guided missiles that could be used against rival China back in 2008.
The "Yun Feng" (Cloud Peak) missile has been developed by the state-run Chung-shan Institute of Science and Technology and each has a range of over 1,000 kilometres, said the Taipei-based China Times, citing unnamed military sources.
The missiles will be deployed in the mountains in central Taiwan from next year to aim at military targets, including airports and missile bases, along China's southeastern coast, the report said.
