A Tien Chien II, or Sky Sword II, air-to-air radar-guided missile, launched from an F-CK-1 Ching-Kuo fighter, misfired and dropped directly into the sea like a torpedo, reported exclusively by Apple News.
Tien Chien II missiles were specifically designed by National Chung-Shan Institute of Science and Technology with American help to be used by Ching-Kuo fighters, or IDF, indigenous defense fighters, as a defense weapon.
Air Force has formed an ad hoc team to probe into this firing failure matter. The Air Force security unit would also investigate why the local media was able to get the video footage of the missile failed to fire. As such film could only be taken by the photographer on the wing plane, it was commonly treated with strict confidentiality.
