RoCAF Aggressor F-5F

Here are my 1/48 F-5F Monogram model.  The RoCAF  46th Aggressor squadron was formed on 1 Jan, 1983 and based in Chih-Hang AFB Taitung, their pilots came mostly from the former F-5 Advanced Weapon Instructor Course also known as the F-5 Fighter Weapon School, totally were 8 pilots ever trained in the USAF Williams AFB during `80's.

The main mission for the aggressor sq. are the DACT and also combat sorties to simulate the Chinese Communist (PLAAF ) fighter tactics.  In the summer of 1988, RoCAF established the ACMI  and became the first country to use that air combat equipment in the East Asia. 

There is a book by Robert Keng to describe the F-5 & RoCAF aggressor sq. history before next 1 Jan to celebrate the  20 anniversary of that unit.
