Taiwanese CM-11 tank plunged from a three-metre bridge, killing three soldiers
Aug 17, 20161433

A Taiwanese tank has plunged from a three-metre bridge in heavy rain after a military drill, killing three soldiers, officials say.

The CM11 “Brave Tiger” tank carrying five soldiers was returning to base when it fell into the Wangsha river in Pingtung county in the south of the country.

The driver and tank captain survived.

The drill was part of preparations for next week’s annual Han Kuang military exercise. President Tsai Ing-wen has sent her condolences.

The CM11 was returning from a firing test at about 10:30 local time (02:30 GMT) when an apparent mechanical failure in one of the tracks left the driver unable to make a required left turn, the army said.

The driver was able to escape with light injuries.

The four others were pulled unresponsive from the vehicle. The captain was revived and later taken to a military hospital in neighbouring Kaohsiung city.

The soldiers reportedly belonged to the Eighth Army Command.

President Tsai demanded a speedy investigation into the cause of the incident.

She is scheduled to preside over the military exercises, which simulate possible attacks by Beijing.

The CM-11 “Brave Tiger” was born in 1990 by upgrading the family line with a modified M48A2 turret and newer M60 Patton main battle tank hulls. The turret fitted a 105mm main gun, an advanced fire control system, stabilized sights, ballistics computer and thermal imaging. In many ways, this modernization of the aged M48 brought the Taiwanese version on par with the newer M60 Patton while incorporating some elements of the advanced American M1 Abrams in the process. Accuracy was improved by way of a joined imaging and target system as well as dual-axis stabilization for target tracking and firing on the move. There is a 7.62mm machine gun on a pintle mount outside of the commander’s cupola hatch. Like the base M48, the CM-11 is crewed by four personnel made up of the driver (seated front, center in the hull), the gunner, loader and commander. The commander sits to the right of the turret, just behind the gunner, while the loader is to his left.

Japan and Taiwan set to increase defence spending in 2017
Jon Grevatt, Bangkok - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
19 August 2016
The governments of Japan and Taiwan have proposed small increases in their respective defence budgets for 2017, according to reports in both Northeast Asian countries on 19 August.

Citing the government's budget directorate, Taiwan's state-run Central News Agency reported that the country's defence expenditure would expand to TWD321.7 billion (USD10.2 billion) in 2017, which it said was a TWD1.6 billion (or 0.5%) increase over actual expenditure in 2016.

In Japan, the Ministry of Defense (MoD) has proposed a 2017 defence budget of JPY5.17 trillion (USD51.6 billion), according to the Kyodo news agency. This, it said, represents a 2.3% increase over the initial budget request for 2016.

Taiwan suspends CM11 live-fire operations following gun barrel failure

Gavin Phipps, Taipei - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
01 September 2016





Taiwan's Ministry of National Defense (MND) suspended live-fire operations on its M48H CM11 main battle tanks (MBTs) on 31 August after a gun barrel broke off a vehicle during an exercise at the Hukou Army Base in Hsinchu County.

Defence officials said the 105 mm gun barrel snapped in an area behind its fume extractor after the CM11 fired a second shot during the exercise, being held by the 6th Army Corps.

One of the crew suffered a minor eye injury.

The MND is currently seeking to replace its ageing CM11s with the purchase of 120 US-made M1A1 Abrams MBTs.

Taiwan orders additional Black Hawk helos

Gareth Jennings, London - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
02 September 2016



The Republic of China Army (RoCA) has exercised an option for a further 24 Sikorsky UH-60M Black Hawk utility helicopters modified to Taiwan army and National Airborne Service Corps configurations, it was disclosed on 1 September.

The procurement, which was announced by the US Department of Defense (DoD), will see the modified helicopters delivered to the RoCA by 8 October 2018. Sikorsky has been awarded USD135.4 million to deliver the helicopters to a "uniquely configured" standard. The award value and the number of helicopters give a unit cost of USD5.6 million per helicopter. Given that a fully configured Black Hawk is typically worth upwards of USD20 million, it is likely that this is an initial agreement to exercise the option with follow-on contracts to follow.

Taiwan has signed for a total of 60 UH-60Ms at a cost of USD3.1 billion, with these 24 new helicopters forming part of that wider order. The first four platforms arrived in-country in December 2014, with deliveries ongoing in batches of seven.

While the contract announcement does not disclose details of the RoCA configuration, a previously issued US Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) notification revealed it to include the standard General Electric T-700-GE-701D engines, AN/APR-39A(V)2 radar warning receivers, AN/ALQ-144A(V)1 infrared countermeasure sets, AN/AAR-57 Common Missile Warning Systems, AN/AVR-2B laser detecting sets, GAU-19/A 12.7 mm Gatling guns, and Po-Sheng communication/datalink systems. In addition, AN/AVS-9 night vision goggles are also being supplied.

The UH-60Ms will replace the Bell UH-1 'Huey', which has been in Taiwanese service since 1969. It has previously been reported that 15 of the 60 UH-60Ms on order will be allocated to the country's Interior Ministry's National Airborne Service for use in disaster relief and emergency operations. As well as the 60 UH-60Ms to be fielded by the army, the air force operates 16 S-70C Black Hawks in the search-and-rescue role (Black Hawks sold under the Foreign Military Sales programme receive the US Army's UH-60 designation, while those sold via Direct Commercial Sale get the Sikorsky S-70 designation instead).

Message to Beijing? US Set to Approve New Torpedo Sales to Taiwan


With tensions ongoing in the South China Sea, the US is set to approve the sale of torpedoes to Taiwan.

Last month, Taiwan approved a service extension for its two Dragon-class submarines. The sub upgrades will allow the craft, launched in the late 1980s, to operate for at least another 15 years. Additionally, the government plans to build eight new attack subs.




But Taiwan also needs to keep its submarine fleet armed. After stalling for many years, the United States has finally agreed to approve the sale of MK-48 heavyweight torpedoes to the island nation.

The news comes from an unnamed official within Taiwan’s Ministry of National Defense, speaking to Defense News. Neither country has officially confirmed the agreement, and it remains unknown how many torpedoes will be purchased. The projectile is developed by US-based defense firm Raytheon, which describes the MK-48 as being "effective" against "all targets, in both littoral and deep-water environment."



"The torpedo is capable of autonomous operations or control via wire link," according to the company’s website.

"Software-based guidance and control enables autonomous operation, 'fire and forget' tactics, simultaneous multiple target engagement and close-in attack. MK-48 quieting technology…significantly reduces self-noise to enable covert deployment and minimize detection." The deal comes amid escalating tensions in the South China Sea, where Beijing has constructed a series of artificial islands. The United States has accused China of attempting to establish an air defense zone, while Beijing maintains it has every right to build within its own territory and that the islands will be used primarily for civilian purposes.

In response, the Pentagon has conducted a number of provocative patrols through the contested areas, and encouraged Pacific allies to play a more active role in preventing China’s growing influence in the region.

With a growing submarine fleet, Taiwan could no doubt play a role in those patrols. A highly-contested region through which roughly $5 trillion in international trade passes annually, most of the South China Sea is claimed by China, though there are overlapping claims by Taiwan, Brunei, the Philippines, Malaysia, and Vietnam. The United States has no territorial claims in the region.

Gabriel Dominguez, London - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
29 September 2016

Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation has been awarded a USD149 million US Army contract modification to provide six uniquely configured UH-60M multirole medium helicopters for the Taiwan National Airborne Service Corps, the US Department of Defense said on 28 September.

The US company will manufacture the aircraft in Stratford, Connecticut, with an estimated completion date of 31 December 2021. The UH-60M (previously UH-60L+) is an improved version of the UH-60 Black Hawk for the US Army.
