Taiwan’s Air Force Command Headquarters rejected Monday as false and
unfounded media reports suggesting that one of its F-CK-1 jet fighters had been locked on by the People’s Liberation Army’s missile defense system during a routine patrol last year.
According to the media reports, the CK-1 jet fighter flying out of Tainan’s 443rd Tactical Fighter Wing was locked on to by China’s S-300 surface-to-air missile battery in Longtian, Fujian province, sometime last year and that in response the pilot immediately performed a tactical retreat to safety.
The squadron of CK-1 jet fighters was performing a routine patrol on the eastern side of the median line of the Taiwan Strait, according to reports. [FULL STORY]
