(Intern reported by journalist Wang, Yi-Ting from Military News Agency on May 22th in Hualien) The Navy implemented combat readiness mission training today at the eastern waters of Taiwan, where the Navy Command Headquarters invited media correspondents to board the ROCS Tso Ying to the open waters at Hualien to conduct live coverage of the training, in order to verify the joint combat capability of Navy soldiers and officers through a hands-on and live ammunition drill.
This drill adopted the detachment method, and has incorporated Navy and Air Force troops including Kidd-class Destroyer, Cheng Kung-class frigate, Oliver Hazard Perry-class frigate, Jiyang-class fridgate, La Fayette Class, Jinjiang-class frigate, Tuo Chiang-class corvette, Kuang Hua VI-class missile boat, S-70C anti-submarine helicopter, P-3C Orion aircraft, F-16, Mirage 2000, and IDF, in order to confront the invading warships from the east, and achieve the target of annihilating enemies on the sea.
The detachment first implemented drills of combat readiness departure and air defense combat, then formed a circular formation that facilitates easier strategic expansion and is more suited to respond to multiple threats, while also requested air support, shore based air defense center, and attacked aerial enemy target using shipborne air defense missiles, as well as regulated aerial Air Force fighter aircrafts to intercept invading enemy aircrafts and wiped out assault boats.
The drill then entered the anti-submarine combat phase, where P-3C Orion aircrafts implemented reconnaissance of enemy submarines in the sky and over the sea surface, Jiyang-class frigate and Jinjiang-class frigate attacked underwater targets with anti-submarine rockets and depth bombs respectively, and the Navy S-70C anti-submarine helicopters took off after completing preparedness procedures on PFG-1112 to implement coordinated anti-submarine missions in the sky and over the sea surface.
In order to annihilate enemy warships on the surface of the water, each warship of the detachment fired from their main cannons including 5-inch cannons, OTO Melara 76mm gun, and Phalanx Close-In Weapon System, launched flares, and utilized the metal chaffs fluttering mid-air to create large area of chaff cloud on the radar screen of the enemies, which lowered risks of being hit by missiles. Air Force’s F-16, Mirage 2000, and IDF attacked aerial targets using missiles of AIM-9 Sidewinder, R.550 Magic, and Sky Sword.
At the end of the drill, the Kidd-class Destroyer simulated a malfunction in its artillery system, and requested for a supply replenishment from the detachment, where the ROCS Tso Ying took into account the enemy threats, and implemented a marine flexible replenishment through high altitude zip lines. In the course of the drill, all participating soldiers and officers manifested high morale, and exerted the results from daily trainings, which facilitated the successful completion of this drill, as well as displayed the actual strength and determination in safeguarding coastal and territorial areas through physical actions.
