Taiwan denies it has reduced F-16C/D request from 66 to 24 aircraft

Contrary to reports in the Taiwanese media last week, a military spokesman has said that Taiwan has not reduced its request for F-16C/D fighters from its original requirement of 66 to 24 aircraft. Taiwan had been hoping to obtain 66 F-16C/Ds since 2006, despite China's vociferous opposition to any forms of arms sales to Taiwan, which it regards as a renegade province.
