Taiwan to Purchase Greek Subs?


DefenceNet reports today that the Navy of Taiwan has expressed an interest to purchase the four Greek Type 214 subs which the Greek government has refused to accept due to technical faults. The news comes from an article in a magazine with a high circulation in Taiwan.

The same article mentions that Taiwanese Navy officers have had meetings in Kiel with top level officials from the HDW shipyard regarding the subs.

The Taiwanese Department of Defence refused to confirm or deny the story, most likely because it is currently in negotiations with both US and French companies for its future sub procurement.
