TAIPEI -- Taiwan is building a "suicide drone" capable of striking military bases on the Chinese mainland. The Jian Hsiang (Flying Sword) was introduced at the Taipei Aerospace and Defense Technology Exhibition (TADTE). The Jian Hsiang is designed to strike radar systems.

China has repeatedly threatened to invade Taiwan. The Taiwanese government is looking to acquire additional arms from United States. A new arms package from the United States is worth $2.2 billion and includes over 100 Abrams tanks and about 250 Stinger surface-to-air missiles (SAMs).
