Lockheed to upgrade Taiwan's F-16 fighter jets The US Government has awarded a contract to Lockheed Martin to upgrade the Republic of China Air Force's (ROCAF) ageing fleet of 145 General Dynamics-built Block 20 F-16A/B Fighting Falcon fighter aircraft. Valued at up to $1.85bn, the contract forms part of the $3.8bn arms package approved by the US Congress in September 2011. The package was subsequently agreed by the country's Ministry of National Defence (MND) in August 2012. Under the contract, Lockheed will install an active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar, embedded global positioning system (GPS), and upgrade the aircraft's electronic warfare and avionics systems. http://www.airforce-technology.com/news/newslockheed-taiwan-f-16-upgrade/ 12.8 miljoonaa maksaa yksi päivitys AESA-tutkalla.
