ROC Navy in the far north?

Post by Hama » 30 Jan 2018 19:45

I was just wondering whether the ROC navy had any presence in the Manchurian region of the 1945-49 civil war, such as during the Liaoshen Campaign? I know the Nationalists controlled at least one important port up there (Huludao) but I haven't seen any mention of naval forces based there.

Hi, Hama. There was a famous battle on Ta Mountain during the LiaoShen Campaign. CCP PLA soliders were at defensive side against several times ROC army troops. About 13 ROC military ships bombarded PLA battle field including "Chong Qing" cruiser (Ex. HMS Aurora). But firing accuracy of "Chong Qing" was poor as she could not drive closely to shoreside but keep far away.

Thanks xikang, that's interesting. I'll have to see if I can find more information on that battle.
