In 1992 the RoCAF received approval to purchase 120 F-16A and 30 F-16B aircraft that were built approximately to MLU (Mid-Life Update) specifications. The 401st TFW moved to Hualien Air Base in July 1998 and eventually was comprised of the 17th, 26th and 27th TFSs. On July 14, 1998 the 401st received its first F-16. The second squadron to receive the new F-16s was the 26th TFS. The 26th TFS was commissioned on December 16, 1999 and received F-16 93-0778 tail number 6677 that same month.

Lockheed F-16A Fighting Falcon

Designed by General Dynamics as a lightweight, daytime USAF air-combat fighter, the F-16 was first flown on January 20th, 1974. This single-engine, supersonic aircraft has, over the years, evolved into a multirole aircraft. It has a frameless bubble canopy—giving its pilot superior visibility—and it uses advanced aerodynamics. The F-16 was one of the first designs to use a relaxed static stability/fly-by-wire system, which helps it pull 9-g maneuvers and achieve speeds of more than Mach 2. Called "Viper" by its pilots, the F-16 is considered one of the most successful aircraft designs of the Cold War, with 4,400+ aircraft built since 1976.
