The CM-11 Brave Tiger is a Main Battle Tank (MBT) that was developed by both the American General Dynamics and the Republic of China Army Armored Vehicle Development Center. It was introduced to the public on 14 April 1990. Being a variant of the M48 Patton, it is also known as the M48H Main Battle Tank. The CM-11 is a hybrid M60 chassis fitted with the turret from the older M48 Patton and the fire control system of the M1 Abrams.

Republic of China (Taiwan) Army conducting its annual Han-Guang drill, filmed on June 21, 2017. The theme of the military drill in 2017 simulates a hypothetical scenario of PLAN conducting beach landings in the sandy northern beaches of Taiwan. The photo depicts the army defending a beach landing by means of heavy artillery bombardment against incoming PLA Marine landing crafts and PLA Navy ships from dug-in shore batteries, including M110A2 203mm self-propelled howitzers, M109A2 155mm self-propelled howitzers, M59 155mm towed howitzers, M101A1 105mm towed howitzers and CM-11 medium tanks (locally upgraded M48 Patton).

Youza!! Look at the size of those shells standing up on the pallets behind those 203mm guns!! I loved the cold war heavy arty 175mm and 203mm, I wish they'd bring back the big guns, nice and massive! Can you imagine a precision guided version of the 203mm round--WHAM!!
 
The Taiwanese AIDC T-5 Brave Eagle advanced trainer jet performed its first flight on the morning of 10 June. The first prototype aircraft, resplendent in its red, white and blue livery, departed Ching Chuang Kang Air Base, in Taichung, for a 20-minute flight before returning.

The T-5 was unveiled in September last year. While it bears a passing resemblance to the twin-seat version of the F-CK-1, it has been extensively re-engineered with modern materials to make it better suited for its role as an advanced trainer. Like the F-CK-1 before it, it is an indigenous aircraft, with the majority of its components made in Taiwan.

The ROCAF currently has 66 T-5s on order. Full-scale production of the T-5 is planned to begin in 2023, with the final aircraft to be delivered by the end of 2028. The T-5 will replace the T-3 Self Reliance advanced trainers and the F-5E/F Tiger II lead-in flight trainers currently used by the ROCAF.

As an airhead, I just see one big target - are we still allowed cluster bombs??
