The Anping-class is a class of offshore patrol vessels manufactured by Jong Shyn Shipbuilding Company for the Coast Guard Administration of Taiwan.

The class is based on the Tuo Chiang-class corvette of the Republic of China Navy but lacks the 76mm main gun and has modifications for use in the law enforcement role.

They are fitted for but not with the HF-3 and HF-2 anti-ship missiles with the same capacity as the Tuo Chiang-class. In wartime, they would serve as fast attack craft.

The Hsiung Feng III is a medium-range supersonic missile with capabilities to destroy both land-based targets and naval targets developed by the National Chung-Shan Institute of Science and Technology (NCSIST) in Taiwan.

The missile is believed to have an operating range of 400 km (250 mi; 220 nmi) with a possible maximum range of over 932 miles (1500 km) and a minimum range of 30 km. It can be deployed on ships and mobile trailers.
