US to deny Taiwan new F-16 fighters
from Defense News
Bowing to Chinese pressure, the U.S. will deny Taiwan's request for 66 new F-16C/D fighter aircraft, a Taiwan Ministry of National Defense official said. "We are so disappointed in the United States," he said. A U.S. Department of Defense delegation arrived in Taipei to deliver the news and offer instead a retrofit package for older F-16A/Bs that includes an active electronically scanned array radar.
