Asia-Pacific Military Aviation News roundup: 20 Aug 2013

The aerobatic team of the Chinese People's Liberation Air Force, August 1st, will make their overseas debut when they perform at Russia's MAKS 2013 International Air Show at Ramenskoye Airport from Aug 27 to Sept 1. The team flies the Chengdu J-10 fighter jet.

Meanwhile, Taiwan has sorted out with Lockheed-Martin the details of the Republic of China Air Force's F-16 fleet upgrade. The US$1.85 billion Foreign Military Sales contract will be centred around an Active Electronically Scanned Array radar, expected to be Northrop Grumman's Scalable Agile Beam Radar (SABR).

A few days ago, the first Republic of Korea Air Force Lockheed-Martin C-130J-30 transport made its first flight. Its painted in a pretty nice camo too. Makes for a nice change for the usual grey. Anyway, here's a pic.
