August 12, 2019 (Google Translation) – In response to media reports that “IDS combat system is not included in the software of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and the equipment is responsible for the Loma package,” the Navy Command said today (11) that the report was purely media speculation. “Submarine State Building” is now implemented by the main contractor Taiwan Shipping Company and is operated by the Chinese Academy of Sciences as a warfare integrator. The current progress is normal. The military is in a prudent and rigorous manner to control and implement the case. Please do not ask the media to add speculation.
The Navy Command emphasized that “the submarine country is built” is the government’s consistent policy. It has now entered the stage of plant construction, and all of them are implemented according to the plan, and the media and the people of the country are called upon to support it.
