According to the report from Up Media, those defense firms had approached Taiwan to sell their own products as Taipei is still waiting for a solution from United States to equip its F-16V with a EW pod that will not interfere with the APG-83 radar.
But the Taiwanese air force turn down the offers as installing those non-U.S. equipment will require the approval of the United States.
It did offer to work with them for a new requirement to equip the indigenous F-CK-1 fighter with an external jamming pod.
