Taiwan's first amphibious assault ship deployed in navy

Taipei, Sep 30 (UNI) Taiwan's first amphibious assault ship, the Yu Shan, has entered service in the island's navy, the head of the Taiwanese administration, Tsai Ing-wen, said on Friday.
"Today is an important day for Taiwan and the island's armed forces, after many years of hard work, the first independently developed and built by Taiwan landing dock ship Yu Shan with a displacement of 10,000 tons was officially inducted," Tsai Ing-wen said, as quoted by the defense ministry.
According to Taiwan's government head, the ship will be able to carry out the tasks of supplying and transporting personnel to remote islands, and it can also be used to provide assistance, including medical, in cases of natural disasters. In wartime, the Yu Shan can be used as a combat-ready transport ship, Tsai Ing-wen added.
