Taiwan refutes that AIM-120 parts found by India were from the island

India says it has conclusive evidence that Pakistan Air Force F-16s were involved in the aerial engagements on the LoC on Feb. 27, 2019

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%.”
