Taiwan To Merge Its Missile Units

All medium and long-range air defense missile units of the air force will be merged into a single unit under General Staff Headquarters, the Ministry of National Defense (MND) said yesterday. With Missile Command and its air defense units coming under the direct control of the ministry, reaction time will be quicker as the chain of command is shortened, 

which meets the requirements for air defense security, the ministry said. Missile defense units, including the Patriot, Tien Kung and Hawk batteries, will be placed under Missile Command as of Thursday, the ministry said.
