TAIPEI -- The Navy Command Headquarters unveiled a 15-year naval force upgrade plan Thursday, under which the weapons systems of the country's major warships will all be upgraded.
The naval headquarters briefed news media on the plan while introducing its maritime warfare history exhibition room.
The headquarters also said it has begun evaluating the feasibility of building submarines on its own as the United States has yet to respond to Taiwan's long-time request to purchase eight diesel-electric submarines.
