Taiwan is believed to possess a land-attack cruise missile capable of targeting Hong Kong and southeast coast of China, SCMP commented quoting reports of satellite images of the missile released on Facebook.
A Canada-based defence website posted on its Facebook page satellite images taken in March revealing Taiwan’s home produced Hsiung Feng IIE land-attack cruise missile.
It had been sent to a base in Taoyuan city, about 50km west of Taipei to be placed 250km from Fuzhou, the capital city of Fujian province on the mainland.
The cruise missile has a strike distance of between 1,000 and 1,500 km, would be capable of striking cities such as Hong Kong, Shanghai and provinces such as Guangdong and Zhejiang.
However, Taiwan’s defence ministry declined any comments on the Hsiung Feng IIE deployment, saying the reports about the missile were “all speculation by media.”
China has upped the rhetoric against Taiwan's independence in recent times and held several military exercises simulating an island conquest. On its part, Taiwan has also increased its military preparedness and exercised to repel a foreign invasion.
