    Very true, how much, we don't know and perhaps the Turks filled in some more information, but there's nothing like hands-on experience. At the end of the day, that's the biggest reason that there are no such sales to the ROC.

    The M1A2T is still a bit of a mystery but we are starting to get an idea.

    The Armor package is an export iteration, probably akin to the package seen on Iraqi Abrams not the Next Generation Armor Package below.
    It would probably look more conventional than the C.
    It will have a Commander remote weapon station.

    They'll have to be able to pay for them first.

    Chinese FM spokesperson on Tue urged the US to stop its military arms sales to Taiwan, which has violated #OneChina principle and damaged China’s sovereignty and security, in response to reports that the US has approved $2.2B-worth of arms sales to the island.

    Said it before said it again. Bejing would say that if the US sold Taiwan Super Soakers and water balloons.

    The Drive did the same story, it seems like the F16V are the hot potato. Being used as leverage in potential trade negotiations between Trump and Xe.
