During a Naval shipbuilding exhibition in Keeling Harbour, the Taiwanese Navy has unveiled their proposal for a helicopter carrier, called the Amphibious Landing Helicopter Dock Ship. The Navy has explained that this is their vision, but are as of yet unsure whether it will come to fruition, as the government will have to evaluate the plans.
The proposed landing deck will be 220m in length, be able to reach speeds of 30 knots and be able to hold up to six helicopters at a time. It will also be armed with air defence missile systems, advanced sonar systems, an electronically scanned array radar and an OTO Melara 76mm gun, reports Defense World.
