Taiwan navy mis-fired an HF-3 missile

HF-3 missile, short for Hsiung Feng III (雄風三型反艦飛彈), commonly known as Xiong 3 (雄3), is a anti-ship missile capable of a range of 400KM flying at a speed of 3.5 Mach.

During a drill, an HF-3 missile mis-fired from ROCS Jin Chiang, a Ching Chiang class patrol ship, at Zuoying harbor. The missile fell into the waters near Penghu. A fishing boat near the site experienced a electrical system explosion that injured and possibly killed several crew members, but it is undetermined whether or not the two incidents are related.
