Hi Hakon, 

Thanks for your comments. It's true that both Russian and Ukrainian forces have continued to use armor, but Taiwan has limited funds available to re-equip its forces, and these should be better spent trying to acquire more anti-air capabilities to give its existing tanks and other forces more survivability or more drones to threaten any Chines armor that is able to land. 

All militaries struggle to not fight the last war, but to spend $2 billion on American tanks I think it strongly suggests that procurement decisions are being spent on demonstrating a closeness with the US that is not worth the trade-off.
