The State Department has approved a potential $330 million deal to provide Taiwan with spare parts for its military aircraft fleet, including F-16s, C-130s, F-5s and Indigenous Defense Fighters.
The Defense Security Cooperation Agency notified Congress of the foreign military sales order (FMSO) II request from Taiwan on Monday.
TECRO requested to receive funds to cover costs needed to stock replenishment supply for standard spare parts and repair parts for Taiwan’s aircraft.
“The proposed sale of spare and repair parts is required to maintain the recipient's defensive and transport aerial fleet. The recipient has been operating these fleets since 1996 and will have no difficulty absorbing this equipment and support into its armed forces,” the DSCA said in a statement.
