Taiwan’s ministry of national defense announced earlier this month that DAGAIE MK2 decoy launcher upgrade kits will be procured from France for the ROC Navy’s six Kang Ding-class frigates. The budget for this procurement is in excess of 800 million yuan and has been awarded to French company DCI DESCO acting as prime contractor. DCI is a defense consultancy firm.
Naval News understands that the upgrade kits and ammunition (the decoys) will be produced in France by French countermeasure specialist Lacroix who supplied the original decoys for the DAGAIE launchers already fitted on the frigates (there are two launchers per ship).
