China Fails to Get German-Made Engines, Thailand: Submarine Contract Could Be Canceled If Not In Accordance With Terms


ZONAJAKARTA.com – After a prolonged stalemate over the engines of Thailand’s first submarine, the cooperation contract with China is in danger of being void.

The construction process of the submarine is reportedly almost complete, but the problem of the absence of an engine is a serious obstacle.

The Thai military is currently waiting for its first submarine, the S26T, which was purchased from China.

However, due to the lack of engines, the delivery of Chinese submarines to Thailand is likely to be delayed.
