This is stated in the message "Taiwan Military".

The anti-ship missile was launched by the Anping-class Coast Guard ( CG-601 ).

The exercises were planned and conducted by the Navy of the Republic of China to study the use of coast guard ships as naval means in wartime.

After test firing, Anping entered a naval base in southern Taiwan to remove missiles and other equipment.

He then went to the port of Hualien County in eastern Taiwan to test the basis of the ship's structure after the missile launches.

According to the Taiwan Coast Guard Fleet, the first test launch of an anti-ship missile from an Anping-class ship is of great importance to the Coast Guard and the Navy.

Hsiung Feng II

Hsiung Feng II is a subsonic anti-ship missile developed by the Chun Shan National Institute of Science and Technology in Taiwan, which is roughly equivalent to the RGM-84 Harpoon.

Development of the missile system began in the early 1980s, and it is reported to have been adopted in 1990.
