RICHMOND, Va. (Reuters) - The United States plans
to supply Taiwan new arms and sophisticated radar equipment for
its existing F-16 fighter fleet as part of an upgrade package
valued at up to $5.85 billion, a senior U.S. official said
"I do not have the impression that anything is being held
back, frankly," said the official, referring to Taiwan's
request for the "retrofit" of about 145 F-16 A/Bs sold by the
United States in 1992.
