Regarding the online news, “the dissatisfaction of the building specifications brought Ministry of National Defense to call off the procurement briefing of Tuo Chiang-class missile corvette,” Navy Command Headquarters claimed today (6th) that the content of the news concerning building specifications and the gas turbine engine used in the propulsion system was a pure conjecture and different from the model regulated by the Navy. Also, Ministry of National Defense did not have any dissatisfaction of Tuo Chiang-class missile corvette that caused the cancelation. It is no need for the media to release the news only by speculation in order to prevent the development of domestic industry.
