As the video in this post shows, India says it has conclusive evidence that Pakistan Air Force (PAF) F-16s were involved in the aerial engagements on the LoC on Feb. 27, 2019 as parts of AIM-120 AMRAAM (Advanced Medium-Range Air-to-Air Missile) were found inside Indian border.
Instead as reported by Alert 5 Weblog, Taiwan Ministry of National Defense has refuted news that the AIM-120 parts found by India was from the island.
Media and online reports had said that missile came from Taiwan based on the contract number – FA8675-05-C-0070 – found on the parts. However, according to Pentagon archives that same contract number was used in the sale of 500 AIM-120C-5 missiles to Pakistan in Nov, 2006.
In fact as Transmittal No: 1168-06 said on Nov. 17, 2006 “Raytheon Co., Tucson, Ariz., is being awarded a $269,646,834 firm-fixed-price contract modification. This action is exercising an option to purchase 500 Advanced Medium Range Air-to-Air Missiles (AMRAAM) Air Vehicles (AAVs) Air Intercept Missile (AIM) – 120C-5 missiles and rehost. This effort supports foreign military sales to Pakistan 100%.”
