Overseas net, Oct. 31 (Xinhua) yesterday (30) morning, Taiwans Legislative Yuan passed special regulations and agreed to purchase 66 f-16v fighters. According to the calculation of Taiwans military, the price of a single aircraft is 121.7 million US dollars. However, Lockheed Martin, an American arms dealer, recently announced that the price of new f-35a and B stealth fighters would be reduced. The price of a single aircraft is far lower than that of f-16v purchased by Taiwan army. Some media suspect that Taiwans military is a Kaizi military purchase. Although Taiwans military urgently refutes rumors, Internet users in the island do not buy it.

On the morning of the 30th, Taiwans Legislative Yuan approved special regulations for the purchase of 66 f-16v fighters, with a single unit price of $121.7 million, yonhap.com reported Monday. However, Lockheed Martin, an American arms dealer, recently announced that the price of new f-35a and B stealth fighters will be reduced. The basic f-35a is only $77.9 million, and the vertical take-off and landing F-35B is only $101.3 million, far lower than the price of f-16v purchased by Taiwans military.

This morning, the Taiwan Air Force made an urgent statement, arguing that the price of f-16v fighters purchased by the Taiwan army is the most favorable one among all purchasers. It also said that the purchase of f-16v fighters can immediately improve air defense combat power, shorten personnel training time, reduce military investment and logistics maintenance costs, calling it saving money for Taiwan.

However, this view of the Taiwan military has not been recognized by island netizens. Some netizens said that when you buy expensive, you always cover up your incompetence. Whats worse is whether the goods are in stock to be eliminated.

Some netizens said frankly, not only the price of fighter, but also the protection fee! If the price is really so, it will be a failure.

More netizens directly ridiculed Tsai ing Wens obedience to the United States, saying, Tsai ing Wen: American Dad is really priceless.

The island has repeatedly expressed strong dissatisfaction with the arms sales between the United States and Taiwan. The islands unionist group once said in a statement that the long-term high military burden has overwhelmed Taiwan. This is not only to exploit Taiwans advantages, but also to regard Taiwan as a stumbling block and pawn to curb the development of mainland China. However, the DPP authorities are willing to act as the pawn of the United States against mainland China. The statement said that the purchase of more arms will only destroy Taiwan, not save Taiwan.

Taiwan media commented that for a long time, the United States only pursues the maximization of its own interests in selling Taiwans weapons. It has always taken the opportunity to treat Taiwan as a champion and a fat sheep. Most of the weapons sold in Taiwan are retired or about to be retired. The price is extremely expensive and there is no room for bargaining.

In response to the U.S. arms sales to Taiwan, Geng Shuang, a spokesman for Chinas foreign ministry, made it clear that Chinas position against the U.S. arms sales to Taiwan is consistent and firm, and has made solemn representations to the U.S. on this issue. We urge the US side to fully recognize the high sensitivity and serious harmfulness of the relevant issues, abide by the one China principle and the provisions of the three Sino US joint communiques, especially the provisions of the August 17 Communique, stop the sale of Taiwan weapons and the military ties between the US and Taiwan, handle the Taiwan related issues carefully and properly, so as to avoid serious damage to the cooperation in important areas between the US and the peace and stability of the Taiwan Strait.
