Good read. For those of you more knowing then me-with their new aegis destroyers ...
Taiwan doesn't have Aegis (yet .. they've been asking for some time now). Are you thinking of the Kidds?

Maybe I was thinking ahead. I thought that the Bush had finally approved it but I can see from doing a simple google search that it didn't get finalized. But is it even possible to integrate a land system into the aegis?
Baseline 7 for Aegis (or maybe one of the late phases of Baseline 6) added the Cooperative Engagement Capability (CEC) and Tactical Ballistic Missile Defense (TBMD) upgrades, so while Aegis has been a naval weapon system, it can draw upon sensor information provided by offboard sources (and there's no reason to think land based radar couldn't be included here).
Also, although not directly related to Aegis, there's been talk recently of 'selling' the anti-ballistic missile Standard Missile 3 (SM-3) to the Israelis, who would probably have to employ it in a land based role.
