Taiwan to Combine Missile Defense Operations
Taiwan has announced plans to combine its missile defense operations under one managing entity to enable the military to more quickly counter potential missile threats, Taiwan Today reported on Monday (see GSN, Dec. 19, 2011).
Senior military officials were recently reported to have said the change was necessitated by developments in the Taiwan Strait and the requirements of the armed forces.
The core of Taiwan's air-defense weaponry, including Patriot Advanced Capability 3 interceptors, would after Thursday be transferred from the air force's artillery branch to the National Defense Ministry's missile command.
