Hello, fellow forumites! I'm currently away from my captain's cabin because, well, I'm halfway around the world. Of course, I had to take advantage of a (somewhat) local museum: ROCS Te Yang. DDG-925, ROCS Te Yang, was commissioned by the United States Navy as DD-837 USS Sarsfield in 1945. After a stint in Vietnam (her only Battle Star), she was decommissioned and sold to the Republic of China Navy in 1977, where she served until 2005. ROCS Te Yang is the Republic of China's first (and as far as I know, only) museum ship, and with admissions being 50NTD ($1.59US), I highly recommend a visit. She's just a wealth of Cold War tech, showcasing weapons like ASROC and Mark 32 torpedo tubes. Unfortunately, the approach to the ship was covered with trees, and this was the best angle I could get of her profile. 5"/38 Mk. 12 DP gun (1 fore, 1 aft) 8-cell ASROC launcher Triple Mk. 33 533mm Torpedo Tubes (1 port, 1 starboard) Triple Hsiung Feng I (雄風一型) Anti-Ship Missile Launcher 16 CR-201 Disruption Rocket launcher (2 port, 2 starboard) View of the ROC flag from the helicopter pad overlooking the after 5"/38. Depth Charge Rack And finally, a challenge from ROCS Te Yang. Who wants to help me out?
