Taiwan Plans to Convert F-5 Jets into UCAVs
Taiwan National Chung-Shan Institute of Science and Technology plans to convert ROCAF’s retired 40 F-5 fighter jets into Combat Drones (UCAV).


The President of the National Chung-Shan Institute of Science and Technology said that this modification is expected to increase ROCAF’s strength in facing the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA).
The ROCAF has operated the F-5E for more than four decades and is now retiring the aircraft and replacing them with domestically produced fighter jets. Local media reported that Taiwan’s AIDC T-5 Brave Eagle Advanced Trainer would be in serial production and gradually delivered to the Taiwan Air Force. A total of 45 Brave Eagles will be produced, and 33 of these aircraft will be deployed at Taitung Air Base, Chihhang. Meanwhile, 12 more units are at Gangshan Air Base.
