Given the still “hot” topic in geopolitics out of the Ukrainian invasion these days, looms the possibility of an invasion of Taiwan by China.

The development of the fleet until today, difficult relations with the US, gradual sourcing outside the US and development of a local industry, current and future plans, organization and composition (including the Taiwanese Marines and Naval Air force).
