Taiwan's army conducts live-fire drill to test combat readiness


Taipei, July 17 (CNA) Taiwan's Army has recently carried out a live-fire artillery drill at a training ground in Pingtung County to demonstrate the combat readiness and firepower of the armed forces.

During the exercises, armored vehicles fired rounds of live ammunition in a simulated response to an enemy invasion at the Jioupeng Military Base in Pingtung.

A Facebook video posted this week by the Army Command Headquarters showed soldiers hitting their target drones using the American-made surface-to-air Dual Mounted Stinger missiles.

The other main highlight of the exercises included the RT2000 multiple launch rocket system, which was produced by Taiwan's National Chung-Shan Institute of Science and Technology.

Shu Hsiao-huang (舒孝煌), an analyst at the government-funded Institute for National Defense and Security Research (INDSR), said the RT2000 was specifically created with the intention to attack invading enemy forces at sea.
