The Taiwan Navy expects to adopt a new landing ship, the Yushan dock, in September after testing all its systems and sea trials are completed. This was reported on Monday by the central news agency of the island.

The construction of this prototype began three years ago and cost $ 162 million. It will replace the outdated landing ship Xu Hai, which Taiwan acquired from the United States in 1999. Its service life has already reached 50 years.

"Yushan" with a displacement of 10,600 tons has a length of 153 meters, a width of 23 meters. It is capable of transporting 673 marines, helicopters, landing boats, amphibious vehicles, and other equipment. Weapons on board — artillery installations and medium-range missiles "Heavenly Sword".

Taiwan has been governed by its own administration since 1949, when the remnants of the Kuomintang forces led by Chiang Kai-shek (1887-1975) fled to the island, having been defeated in the Chinese civil war. Since then, Taiwan has retained the flag and some other attributes of the former Republic of China, which existed on the mainland before the Communists came to power. According to the official position of the PRC, supported by most countries, including Russia, the island is considered one of the Chinese provinces.
