Taiwan Air Force
Organization and Equipment

The Taiwan Air Force is organized in a Wing / Group / Squadron structure patterned on that of the United States Air Force. Evidently, the transition to the newer generation of aircraft is resulting in a reduction in the nominal squadron strength from 24 to 20 aircraft. When the current unit equipment transition is completed in 2000, each Wing will operate a single type of aircraft, with one Mirage 2000 wing, two IDF wings, two F-16 wings, and two wings retaining the older F-5. Inventory listings do not reflect aircraft losses, which to date have include four F-16s and two Mirage 2000 aircraft.
