23rd September 2016 - 02:39 GMT | by Charles Au in Kaohsiung

Lung Teh Shipbuilding, builder of the Tuo Chiang-class corvette for the Republic of China Navy (ROCN), is well known internationally for its patrol craft. Customers include Cyprus, Hong Kong, Japan, Kuwait, Macau, Oman and Singapore, for example.
