The US ban on delivering military products to Taiwan, has forced the island to rely more on indigenous arm products. But the military in Taiwan still prefer the US-made products, tells Defense expert Wendell Minnick in ATimes.
Meanwhile, the military in Taiwan may not be so keen on the local substitutes for US equipment, according to Wendell Minnick, Asia bureau chief with Defense News.
“The military wants US defense products,” he said. “The Ministry of National Defense views these products as more reliable, since they’ve been tested in combat.”
