TAIPEI–Taiwan unveiled the prototype of its largest ever military drone on Wednesday as it seeks to boost its defense forces in the face of a perceived threat from China.

The sleek, white unmanned aircraft is designed for intelligence gathering and surveillance missions, according to the National Chung Shan Institute of Science and Technology (CSIST), an arm of the Ministry of National Defense that is developing the drone.

It is more than twice the size of any of the existing fleet of 32 “Sharp Kite” drones used by Taiwanese forces.

“Our research and development capabilities are definitely not inferior (to China’s),” said Ma Wan-june, director of the aeronautical systems research division at CSIST.

Ma did not say when the prototype is to be put into use or give any further specifications.

“It’s equipped for automatic takeoff and landing, communications, optical detection, among others,” Ma said.

The drone was shown to reporters ahead of the biennial Taipei Aerospace and Defense Technology Exhibition which starts Thursday and is open to the public.

Taiwan in December launched its largest-ever missile ship, the 500-ton corvette named “Tuo Chiang”–the first of its kind to be produced locally.

The ship is armed with 16 missiles including eight supersonic Hsiung-feng III (Brave Wind) anti-ship missiles.

Self-governing Taiwan split from mainland China in 1949 after a civil war. But Beijing still sees the island as part of its territory and does not rule out force to achieve reunification at some stage.

According to Taiwan’s defense ministry, China has more than 1,500 ballistic and cruise missiles trained on the island.

  4. I am ROSE SMITH from CANADA a single parent, before my husband died
    he left us with so much DEBT that we could not cope with life, I was
    totally confused on what to do. When I was going through the internet
    I came across a POST by MARCUS CAFE about how Mrs JULIA NAVARO help
    him to get a loan so I applied for the loan from JULIA NAVARO through
    her mail (navaroloancompany@yahoo.com) of $200,000 with a duration of
    10 years.When I was applying for the loan I made a vow to GOD that if
    I get the loan I will let the world know what she did for me, to my
    greatest surprise my loan was granted with an interest of 2%. I was
    able to settle my debt and start up a new life and business with a
    settled family. So if you want any type of loan in any part of the
    world for as low as 2% please contact JULIA NAVARO on her mail
    navaroloancompany@yahoo.com or her phone number +16618356153.
    I just fulfilled my vow.
