Taiwan to Develop Unmanned Aircraft System


Taiwan has decided not to put the US-built RQ-4 Global Hawk on its arms procurement list, but to develop an indigenous unmanned aircraft system for the country's air force instead.
Minister of National Defence Kao Hua-chu said the air force had identified the need to acquire unmanned aircraft, but had not included the US-built reconnaissance aircraft system on its arms procurement list.
Hua-chu said the military-run Chung-Shan Institute of Science and Technology was already conducting research to develop the unmanned surveillance aircraft system.
The minister said this following a report in the China Times that Japan was considering to procure the RQ-4 Global Hawk after the US military formally stationed the aircraft in Guam in September.
The minister also said it was still not clear if the US would agree to sell Japan the advanced RQ-4 Global Hawks, according to Focus Taiwan News Channel.

National Defense Minister Kao Hua-chu said Monday that he will ask for an overall review of the country's French-made Mirage fighter jets after a lawmaker pointed out that the flight hours of the fighters have been reduced due to concern about a possible engine problem. Legislator Lin Yu-fang of the ruling Kuomintang told a legislative committee that during maintenance operations in May 2009, the engine rotors were found to have cracks, resulting in reduced flying hours. In May this year, a Mirage fighter jet belonging to the French Air Force crashed in southwestern France, possibly due to the same engine fault. For this reason, the total flying hours of Taiwan's Mirage jets were reduced to less than 5,000 this year from the original target of more than 10,000 hours. "The flying hours of the Mirage pilots were also reduced from the standard 15 hours per month to 10 hours, even lower than the 12 hours per month logged by Chinese fighter jet pilots, " Lin said, adding that this has affected the nation's air defenses. Taiwan purchased 60 Mirage-2000s fighter jets from France in 1992, the last batch of which was delivered in 2001. Fifty-six of the planes remain in service, with four having been lost in crashes.

Taiwan Readies Mass Production of Cruise Missiles


TAIPEI - Taiwan is preparing for the mass production of the Hsiung Feng 2E (HF-2E) land attack cruise missile (LACM) and the Hsiung Feng 3 (HF-3) anti-ship cruise missile (ASCM).

Taiwan's Deputy Defense Minister Chao Shih-chang told legislators on Nov. 8 that production for the two missiles had already begun. Chao made the comments during questioning by the Legislative Yuan's Foreign and Defense Committee. In response to a question about the missiles by legislator Lin Yu-fang of the ruling party Kuomintang (KMT), Chao said the programs, code-named the Chichun (Lance Hawk) and Chuifeng (Chasing Wind), were "progressing smoothly."
An official with the Ministry of National Defense (MND) clarified the confusion over the designations used to describe the programs. "The code names are changed every year or two for security reasons." The Chichun is the HF-2E and the Chuifeng is the HF-3, he said. The source also corrected some media reports that indicated Chao had stated "mass production" had begun. "A few have been produced and could be fielded in case of war," the MND source said.
The military-run Chungshan Institute of Science and Technology (CSIST) produces the Hsiung Feng (Brave Wind) missile family, which includes the HF-1 and HF-2 anti-ship missiles. CSIST is the primary research and development organization for the military. It is also developing a new air-defense missile system, Tien Kung 3 (Sky Bow 3), comparable to the Patriot PAC-2 air-defense system.
The HF-3 ASCM was unveiled to the public during the 2007 Ten-Ten (Oct. 10) Parade in Taipei. Defense News later sighted it in January 2008 being outfitted on the1101 Cheng Kung, a Perry-class frigate, at the weapons loading dock at Tsoying Naval Base, Kaohsiung. It was later spotted again on the same frigate earlier this year during a base visit.
The HF-2E LACM has been a source of controversy between Taipei and Washington.
There has been pressure by the U.S. to kill the program, according to a Taiwan defense analyst based in Taipei.
However, China continues to deploy more short-range ballistic missiles (SRBM) and new cruise missiles along its coast targeting Taiwan. The only alternative is to deploy a counter response to that threat, he said. China currently has roughly 1,300 to 1,500 SRBMs aimed at the island. Taiwan has no offensive missile capability.
The HF-2E could "be a tactical deterrent and strategic bargaining chip in possible military confidence-building measures" with China, said the analyst.
"Should military conflict become unavoidable, firing LACMs from Taiwan could indirectly give the U.S. some flexibility in diplomatic terms," he said. If the U.S. continues to insist Taiwan not have any offensive capability the burden for ground strikes on the Chinese mainland are placed directly on the shoulders of the U.S. military, the analyst said.

Lockheed to Support Taiwanese Navy Aircraft
Taiwan has awarded a firm, fixed-price contract to Lockheed to supply mission system spares to outfit new avionics components for 12 P-3C Orion anti-submarine warfare (ASW) aircraft.
The country has procured the $47.5m aircraft under the US foreign military sales (FMS) programme to replace the navy's aging Grumman S-2T Turbo Tracker ASW aircraft.
Taiwan's navy currently operates a number of operational ASW helicopters, including the 500MD Defender and S-70C(M)-1/2 helicopters, according to Defense News.
Work will be performed at the company's facility in the US and is expected to be completed in December 2012.

Taiwan F-16 upgrade package to be announced after Hu’s visit



The Obama administration will announced an upgrade package for Taiwan’s F-16A/B fighters after Chinese President Hu Jingtao’s visit.

A new showdown is looming between China and the United States over arms sales to Taiwan. The Obama administration privately has decided to sell a new arms package to the island but is keeping details secret until after next week's visit by Chinese President Hu Jintao.
A senior Obama administration official told Inside the Ring that the latest multibillion-dollar arms package is expected to trigger new outrage from China's military. It includes much-needed equipment to upgrade Taiwan's aging arsenal of 145 U.S.-made F-16 jet fighters with new electronics, engines and missiles.
The new arms package could be worth up to $4 billion for defense contractors and will be the first test of Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates' efforts in Beijing this week to restart stalled military-to-military relations with China.
Beijing cut off ties with the Pentagon last year in January after Congress was notified about plans to sell $6.4 billion worth of arms to Taiwan, the island nation Beijing insists is part of its territory. In 2008, China halted the military exchange program over an earlier arms sale.
Chinese Defense MinisterGen. Liang Guanglie said after meeting with Mr. Gates on Monday that China has been "clear and consistent" in opposing arms sales to Taiwan, claiming they "seriously damaged China's core interests, and we do not want to see that happen again." He also added that "neither do we hope that the U.S. arms sales to Taiwan will again and further disrupt our bilateral and military-to-military relationship."
Mr. Gates told reporters later that decisions on arms sales are focused on defensive capabilities and obligations based on U.S. law. He said he told the Chinese "we were not going to change our policy, but clearly over time, if the environment changed and if the relationship between China and Taiwan continued to improve and the security environment for Taiwan changed, then perhaps that would create the conditions for re-examining all of this."
However, it would be "an evolutionary and a long-term process," he said, adding, "I don't think that's anything that's going to happen anytime soon."
Rupert Hammond-Chambers, president of the U.S.-Taiwan Business Council, said the arms package has been approved by all U.S. agencies except the State Department. Once it is fully approved, Taiwan will decide what to buy for retrofitting the F-16s. A final notice to Congress is not expected until later this year, he said.
Defense sources said Taiwan's request to buy more modern F-16s is still being considered, but the upgrade package is assured

New U.S. arms deal with Taiwan underway: report


By Zep Hu, Lee Ming-chung and Y.F. Low

Washington, Jan. 13 (CNA) The U.S. government has decided to sell a new arms package to Taiwan that will involve upgrades of the 145 aging U.S.-made F-16 jet fighters owned by the Taiwan air force, a Washington-based U.S. daily reported Thursday.

The administration of U.S. President Barack Obama is keeping the details secret until after next week's visit by Chinese President Hu Jintao as the package "is expected to trigger new outrage from China's military," according to the Washington Times.

The paper said key elements of the package will include new radar, possibly the advanced Active Electronically Scanned Array system, and advanced AIM-9X air-to-air missiles.

Rupert Hammond-Chambers, president of the U.S.-Taiwan Business Council, an association of American companies with business interests in Taiwan, was quoted as saying that the package has been approved by all U.S. agencies except the State Department and that final approval from Congress is not expected until later this year.

In Taiwan, however, the Ministry of National Defense denied any knowledge of the arms package.

Ruling Kuomintang Legislator Lin Yu-fang, who is a member of the Legislative Yuan's Foreign and National Defense Committee, said the package is logical but will not necessarily materialize in the near future.

"It's unlikely that the United States would choose to humiliate China at a time when Hu is visiting," Lin said.

The lawmaker said when he discussed arms sale issues with U.S. officials during his last visit to the United States, he could feel that Washington was more inclined to upgrade the existing F-16 A/B fleet than to sell new F-16 C/D fighters to Taiwan.

This would be reasonable because many F-16 A/B parts and components are no longer in production, Lin said.

Washington now has an even better reason to upgrade the capability of Taiwan's aging F-16 fleet following recent test flights of China's new J-20 stealth jet, he said.

La situation des sous-marins taïwanais est grave


Alors que les partis politiques taïwanais ne parviennent pas à se mettre d’accord sur le besoin de développer ou acheter de nouveaux sous-marins, les capacités sous-marine de la marine taïwanaise se dégradent de plus en plus.


A Guppy-class submarine that has been in service for 66 years, front, and two Dutch-made Hailung-class submarines that have been in service for 25 years are pictured at the Tsuoying naval base in Greater Kaohsiung yesterday.


Jyh-Perng Wang, un chercheur de l’Association for Managing Defense and Strategies, explique que les sous-marins des classes Hailung et Guppy sont surchargés d’exercices et de missions opérationnelles, puisqu’ils passent 27 jours par mois en mer. Les 2 sous-marins de la classe Guppy ne sont plus utilisés maintenant que pour la formation, ce qui ne laissent que les 2 sous-marins de la classe Hailung pour les missions opérationnelles.
Wang indique que le stress physique et mental, qui s’ajoute à une mentalité “pas d’espoir pour l’avenir”, pourrait conduire à une vague de départ parmi les officiers supérieurs.
Les Gyppy, âgés de 70 ans, sont dans un triste état et exigent un entretien permanent. Cela explique pourquoi, à chaque fois que les 2 sous-marins prennent la mer, l’état-major de la marine devient extrêmement nerveux.
Les équipages s’inquiètent constamment du risque d’accidents. C’est pourquoi le fardeau des missions opérationnelles repose désormais principalement sur les 2 sous-marins de la classe Hailung, construits aux Pays-Bas.
Des sources indiquent que, outre les missions opérationnelles, les 2 sous-marins actifs sont aussi utilisés pour des exercices de lutte anti-sous-marine avec ou sans avertissement, des missions de patrouille maritime, des évaluations de routine par le commandement de la flotte, le mouillage de mines et la lutte contre les mines, ainsi que pour les exercices annuels Han Kuang. Ces derniers exigent plusieurs mois de préparation et d’exécution, ce qui pourrait expliquer l’épuisement des officiers.
Wang ajoute que, plus de 20 ans après leur mise en service, les sous-marins de la classe Hailung commencent eux aussi à devenir vieux. A leur entrée en service, ils ont fourni un avantage face aux sous-marins chinois. Mais maintenant que les sous-marins d’attaque chinois de la classe Song ont été équipés de tuiles anéchoïques [1] , il est temps pour la marine de désarmer ses sous-marins de la classe “Stégosaure” et de se moderniser.
Wang indique aussi qu’il est inquiet que des salaires entre 30.000 et 40.000$ de Taïwan (777 à 1.037 €) par mois proposés par la marine, ne soient insuffisants pour retenir le personnel, puisque les équipages de sous-marins subissent constamment beaucoup de stress. La vague d’officiers supérieurs qui ont pris leur retraite en avance, montre que les officiers ont perdu confiance dans la flotte sous-marine, ce qui est une grande perte pour la marine taïwanaise.

Taiwan to test-fire missiles
2011/01/17








Taiwan's armed forces will hold a large-scale joint air defense missile test-firing drill Tuesday at the tightly guarded Jiupeng military base in Pingtung County in southern Taiwan.

President Ma Ying-jeou will be on hand to watch the military exercise, which will be open to the media for the first time in eight years.

As the drill comes on the same day of Chinese President Hu Jintao's departure for a state visit to the United States and closely follows China's first-known test flight of its radar-eluding stealth fighter J-20, the missile tests have drawn considerable attention locally.

The following are excerpts from local media coverage of the event

Taiwan detains general in China spy case




By Benjamin Yeh (AFP) – 1 day ago
TAIPEI — A Taiwanese general has been arrested over claims he spied for China, the defence ministry said Wednesday as it scrambled to limit the damage from what it called the worst espionage case in 50 years.
Army Major General Lo Hsien-che was recruited by China while stationed in Thailand between 2002 and 2005 and was detained late last month, the ministry said in a statement.
At the time of his arrest, the 51-year-old was head of the army's telecommunications and electronic information department, according to the statement.
"We don't know for sure, but there's no reason to believe that he stopped spying for China after returning home from Thailand," a ministry official told AFP, on condition of anonymity.
"This is definitely the worst Chinese communist espionage case in the past half century."
It was not immediately clear how much harm Lo had caused Taiwan's military, but given the sensitive affairs he was in charge of, "it could be serious," the official added.
Local media said prosecutors had seized highly confidential documents while searching Lo's office.
Some reportedly detail the Po Sheng (Broad Victory) system, a sophisticated command, control and communications network that Taiwan is purchasing from US defence contractor Lockheed Martin at a cost of Tw$46 billion ($1.6 billion).
China is believed to be very interested in learning more about the project as it enables the Taiwanese military to get access to US intelligence systems, the China Times newspaper said.
Other documents include the army's procurement of 30 Boeing-made Apache AH-64D Longbow attack helicopters and the army's underground optical fibre network system, it said.
The defence ministry has set up an ad hoc group in an effort to limit the possible damage, according to Lieutenant General Wang Ming-wo, acting director of the ministry's Political Warfare Bureau.
"He has brought shame to the military. Servicemen are supposed to be loyal to their country," Wang said.
The arrest of Lo came amid fast-warming ties between Taipei and Beijing following the 2008 election of Ma Ying-jeou of the China-friendly Kuomintang as president.
"Although tensions across the Taiwan Strait have eased over the past more than two years, the Chinese communists have not stopped their infiltration into Taiwan," said Wang.
"Instead, they have been stepping up their intelligence gathering, what we call the 'smokeless war,' against us."
Taiwan and China have spied on each other ever since they split in 1949 at the end of a civil war. Beijing still regards the island as part of its territory awaiting reunification.
Legislator Tsai Huang-lang from the main opposition Democratic Progressive Party, known for its anti-China stance, described the event as "a big military setback for Taiwan".
"Defence minister Kao Hua-chu and the ministry's chief of staff Lin Chen-yi should immediately step down to assume full responsibility," he said.
Military analysts warned that the espionage case may further delay the proposed US sale of next generation F-16 fighter jets and submarines, weapons Taiwan says it badly needs to defend itself against its giant neighbour.
"The case may give the United States second thoughts while evaluating the arms deals," said Wung Ming-hsien, a strategy expert at Tamkang University near Taipei.
Taipei applied to the US government to buy 66 F-16s in early 2007, but observers say Washington has held up the deal for fear of angering Beijing.
Now, the US government may also fear that a deal could cause military secrets to fall into Chinese hands, according to Wung.
"We're in touch with Taiwanese authorities on the case," said Sheila Paskman, a spokeswoman for The American Institute in Taiwan, the US de facto embassy in Taipei.
The United States has remained a leading arms supplier to Taiwan despite its switching of diplomatic recognition from Taipei to Beijing since 1979 and is obliged by its own laws to supply arms to the island.

Taiwan missile test flops again

Taiwan's air force said Wednesday that two out of four missiles missed their targets during a drill earlier this week, two months after a similar failure left military leaders red-faced.

The missiles that failed in Monday's test included a US-made Sparrow and a French-made Mica, said air force spokesman Pan Kung-shiao.

"Our procedure was correct, and we will review this with the French and the US sides that made the missiles," he told AFP
.

Details of this week's test at an airbase in southern Taiwan were kept confidential until after it had been carried out.

It followed a live-fire manoeuvre attended by the press in January, in which six out of 19 missiles missed their targets or failed to explode.

The previous flop earned the armed forces rare criticism from an irate President Ma Ying-jeou, who urged the military to practice more.

Taiwan has ruled itself since the end of a civil war in 1949, but Beijing still considers the island part of its territory and has never renounced the potential use of force to get it back.

The island's relations with China have improved since Ma became president in 2008 on a China-friendly platform.

US likely to help Taiwan upgrade F-16s: premier


(AFP)
TAIPEI — Taiwan Premier Wu Den-yih confirmed Tuesday that the United States is likely to help the island upgrade its F-16 A/B fighters as it is reluctant to arm Taipei with more advanced jets.
Taiwan has been pressing for the more powerful F-16 C/Ds, saying it badly needs the weaponry as a bargaining chip against its former bitter rival China.
But the fate of a proposed arms deal remains uncertain, Wu said, amid speculation that it could jeopardise Washington's ties with Beijing.
"My understanding is that Washington does not say 'yes' or 'no'. The deal is still under Washington's evaluation," Wu said during a press conference in Taipei.
Wu said that "upgrading the F-16A/Bs is the more likely direction".
The US Congress in 1979 passed the Taiwan Relations Act requiring the United States to provide the island with defensive weapons.
A sale of F-16 C/Ds to Taiwan would be certain to ignite the anger of Beijing, which reacted furiously when the Barack Obama administration in January 2010 announced a 6.4-billion-dollar arms package for the self-governing island.
The package included Patriot missiles, Black Hawk helicopters, and equipment for Taiwan's F-16 fleet, but no submarines or new fighter jets.
A furious Beijing suspended military exchanges with Washington in response.
The backbone of Taiwan's air force consists of some 60 ageing F-5s, 126 Indigenous Defense Fighters (IDFs), 146 US-made F-16A/Bs and 56 French-made Mirage 2000-5s.
Ties with China have improved markedly since Beijing-friendly Ma Ying-jeou became Taiwan's president in 2008, but China still refuses to renounce the possibility of using force should the island declare independence.

Taiwan missile 'can reach Beijing'



(AFP)



TAIPEI — Taiwan has developed a missile capable of reaching Beijing and tested it successfully three years ago, a report said on Wednesday, citing a former defence minister.
Taiwan's military successfully fired the medium-range missile in early 2008 in a secret test attended by then president Chen Shui-bian, said former defence minister Michael Tsai in memoirs released this week.
Tsai did not specify the range of the missile but the United Daily News said Wednesday it was capable of reaching major Chinese cities including Beijing, Chengdu and Shenyang with a 2,000-kilometre (1,250-mile) range.
The newspaper said Tsai is the first official to confirm the island has developed the technology, though local media have previously reported that Taiwan possessed mid-range missile capabilities.
Stephen Young, Washington's then de facto envoy to Taipei, had expressed concerns over the test, but Tsai assured him that Taiwan would not initiate any attack, the former minister said in the book.
The Chinese military was prepared to go to war should the Beijing-friendly candidate Ma Ying-jeou lose the 2008 president election, Tsai wrote, citing Taiwan and US intelligence.
Tensions with China mounted during Chen's 2000-2008 rule over policies promoting Taiwan's independence from the mainland, but have eased significantly since Ma became president in May 2008.
But China still refuses to renounce the use of force against Taiwan should it declare formal independence, prompting the island to seek more defensive weapons.
The island has governed itself since it split from the mainland in 1949 at the end of a civil war.

Taiwan to delay purchases of US weapons opposed by China



TAIPEI, Taiwan — Taiwan is postponing purchases of U.S.-made Black Hawk helicopters and Patriot air defense systems that are part of a $6.4 billion U.S. weapons package that has been strongly opposed by China, officials said Tuesday.
A lawmaker said the delay was caused by budgetary shortfalls, while the Defense Ministry blamed it on manufacturing delays.

Lin Yu-fang, a ruling Nationalist Party lawmaker on the legislature’s defense committee, said the government is either delaying purchases of new items or postponing payments for existing programs because of the funding shortfall. The procurement of six Patriot missile systems has been pushed back from 2014 to 2017 and 60 Black Hawk helicopters from 2016 to 2019 or 2020, he said.
Defense Ministry spokesman Luo Shou-he denied that the postponements were caused by budget constraints and instead cited production delays by U.S. defense contractors.
Taiwan’s Patriot air defense systems are being made by Lockheed Martin Corp., while Black Hawk helicopters are produced by Sikorsky Aircraft Corp.
Sikorsky said it would have no comment because it was a government-to-government foreign military sale. There was no immediate comment from Lockheed Martin.
The U.S. remains Taiwan’s most important strategic partner and is required by law to provide it with defensive weapons.
Last year, the Obama administration notified Congress it was making $6.4 billion in weapons available to Taiwan, including missiles, Black Hawk helicopters, information distribution systems and two Osprey Class mine hunting ships.
American arms sales to Taiwan are strongly opposed by China, which sees them as interference in its domestic affairs and says they undermine ties between Beijing and Washington.
Senior Taiwanese officials have expressed concern that budgetary shortfalls amounting to several billion dollars are causing the government to struggle to meet a plan to turn the military into an all-volunteer service by 2015.
Taiwan has an annual defense budget of $12.92 billion, while China is spending $92.57 billion on its military this year.
China claims that Taiwan is part of its territory, although the two sides split during a civil war in 1949. Beijing is determined to unify with Taiwan, by force if necessary.

Taiwan presse les Etats-Unis pour recevoir des F-16



Le président taiwanais, Ma Ying-jeou a exhorté les États-Unis à lui fournir des chasseurs F-16 et des sous-marins lors d’un discours prononcé le 12 mai au Center for Strategic and International Studies à Washington.

Ces nouvelles armes permettront à Taipei de négocier avec Pékin sur un pied d’égalité, a t-il expliqué. « C’est pourquoi je continue d’exhorter les États-Unis à fournir à Taiwan les armes nécessaires pour garder intacte notre intégrité aérienne et navale. C’est essentiel au maintien d’une défense crédible. ».

Taiwan to Replace Aging Anti-Submarine Torpedoes



Taiwan's military is planning to allocate $860m to purchase new mk54 and mk48 torpedoes in a move to replace its aging US- and German-manufactured torpedoes.
Defense News has reported that $300m of the total budget will be used to buy 600 mk54 lightweight hybrid torpedoes to replace mk46 anti-submarine torpedoes, while $160m is allocated for 40 mk48 heavyweight submarine-launched torpedoes.
The remaining amount will be used for the purchase of 100 mk48s to be deployed on eight US diesel-electric submarines it plans to procure.
The mk48 torpedoes are designed to destroy high-speed nuclear-powered submarines and high-performance surface ships, and will replace the existing German SUT heavyweight torpedoes.
The torpedoes will be procured in phases over a ten-year period.

Taiwan renews bid to buy subs, F-16s from US


TAIPEI - TAIWAN on Sunday said it was still pursuing its bid to buy eight submarines and dozens of F-16 fighters from the United States despite warming relations with former arch-rival China.
The Taipei-based China Times reported on Sunday that Taiwan had decided to accept a US proposal of just four conventional submarines to help expedite the arms deal which has been in limbo since 2001.
'The report is not true. The country's position to seek (eight) diesel-powered submarines and F-16C/Ds has never changed,' Taiwan's defence ministry said in a statement.
'The deal is still in the US government's screening process. The ministry will keep pushing for the deal so as to meet Taiwan's self-defence demands.'
In April 2001 then US president George W. Bush approved the sale of eight conventional submarines as part of Washington's most comprehensive arms package to the island since 1992.
Since then, however, there has been little progress as the United States has not built conventional submarines for more than 40 years, and Germany and Spain had reportedly declined to offer their designs for fear of offending China. -- AFP

Outlook gloomy for Taiwan F-16 C/D deal

Taiwan still hopes to acquire 66 Lockheed Martin F-16 C/Ds, but Washington appears reluctant to move the deal forward and offend China.

Reports in Taiwan media have quoted Taiwan's ministry of national defence as saying it is still pushing to acquire the US aircraft, denying earlier reports that Taiwan was willing to accept a "watered down" deal for defence equipment from the USA.

"The report is not true," the ministry has reportedly said. "The country's position to seek eight diesel-powered submarines and F-16C/Ds has never changed. The deal is still in the US government's screening process. The ministry will keep pushing for the deal so as to meet Taiwan's self-defence demands."

The submarine sale was originally approved by former US president George Bush in 2001, but the agreement has yet to be finalised. The USA has not built diesel electric submarines since the 1960s, and European countries with leading diesel electric submarine technology such as Germany and France are wary of riling China.

Similar concerns in Washington about China's sensitivities appear to be delaying the F-16 C/D deal. During a recent visit to the USA, Chinese army chief Chen Bingde urged his hosts to cease arms sales to Taiwan, and review the 1979 Taiwan Relations Act, which requires the USA to sell Taiwan arms of a defensive nature.

Taiwan's air force was considered superior to that of China as recently as 10 years ago, but today its F-16 A/Bs, Dassault Mirage 2000s and Aerospace Industrial Development Corporation Ching Kuo Indigenous Defence Fighters are increasingly opposed by modern Chinese air force types such as the Chengdu J-10, Shenyang J-11 (a copy of the Sukhoi Su-27), and the Sukhoi Su-30

In addition, China is conducting tests of the Chengdu J-20. Although experts question the aircraft's true stealth capabilities, the J-20 is a large aircraft and, if deployed, would likely be able to carry heavy weapons loads over long ranges. A recent Rand report said the J-20 would be ideal for mounting fast strikes against Taiwan and US bases in the Pacific.

Richard Bitzinger, senior fellow at Singapore's S Rajaratnam School of International Studies, doubts the F-16 C/D deal will go through. He noted that China is today much more assertive about suspending military exchanges with the USA, as it did in early 2010 when Washington approved a $6.1 billion arms package to Taiwan that included 60 Sikorsky UH-60M Black Hawk helicopters and 114 Lockheed Patriot PAC-3 missiles.

That sale also spurred Beijing to threaten sanctions against the US companies involved in the deal. This included Boeing, which sells large numbers of commercial aircraft to mainland airlines, Sikorsky parent United Technologies, and General Electric, which manufactures the UH-60M's T700 engines.

Although relations between China and Taiwan have improved in recent years, China has never forgone the option of using force to reacquire Taiwan, which it views as a breakaway province.

"At the end of the day, America is going to look out for its own interests first," says a Taiwan industry source.

F-16 Sales to Taiwan Generates Rare Show of Senate Unity

It seems as if the only thing a majority in the U.S. Senate can agree on is that they do not like any of the proposed budget plans. That is, until the subject of the sale of F-16s to Taiwan came up. In a rare demonstration of bipartisanship, and good sense, the co-chairs of the Senate Taiwan Caucus Robert Menendez (D-NJ) and James Inhofe (R-Okla) published a letter signed by forty-three of their colleagues calling on the Obama Administration to approve Taiwan’s request to buy 66 F-16 C/D fighter jets. Among the senators who signed the letter, in addition to Menendez, were Democrats Joe Lieberman, Tim Johnson, Jay Rockefeller, Ron Wyden and Sherrod Brown. Republicans Jon Kyl, John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Scott Brown joined Inhofe in signing the letter.

The “Gang of 45” is not looking to provoke a confrontation with the People’s Republic of China. Rather, they are focused on the need to maintain stability and military parity in East Asia. China is continuing a massive military buildup involving the addition of dozens of ballistic missiles and hundreds of modern jet fighters to its arsenal across the straits from Taiwan. The Senators realize that if the sale of F-16 is not concluded soon, the U.S. might have no viable options for preventing the situation across the straits from becoming unstable. Thus, the 45 Senators warned the administration that,

"We are deeply concerned that further delay of the decision to sell F-16s to Taiwan could result in closure of the F-16 production line, and urge you to expedite this export process before the line closes. Without new fighter aircraft and upgrades to its existing fleet of F-16s, Taiwan will be dangerously exposed to Chinese military threats, aggression and provocation, which pose significant national security implications for the U.S."

The Obama Administration has refused to act on Taiwan’s request out of a fear of angering China, even though it is Beijing that is destabilizing the balance of power in the region. Failure to respond to the legitimate security needs of a long-time friend and fellow democracy in the pursuit of narrow national interest is a mistake. As the President made clear in his recent speech to the Muslim world, the defense and nurturance of democratic governments around the world is in our interest and must be a core value that guides this nation’s policy decisions. What is right for the peoples of the Middle East and North Africa is also right for Taiwan.

Providing additional F-16s for Taiwan and upgrading that country’s existing fleet will only restore the military balance that has been present in the region for more than sixty years. It will also send a signal to the leaders in Beijing that the security policy of the United States will not be guided only by narrow market interests.
