IDF是自製防禦戰機(Indigenous Defense Fighter)的縮寫，艱辛研發過程，至今依然滋味千般。民國67年前總統蔣經國先生「沒有空防，就沒有國防」的指示下，決定自行研發防禦性戰機，並在民國71年成立「自立小組」，負責研發任務，自此展開IDF「催生」的艱苦歲月。
There have been over 20 years since the first indigenous fighter, called Ching-Kuo (經國號), was first produced in Taiwan in 1988.The indigenous fighter used to play an important role in the defense of Taiwan in the Taiwan Strait until the introduction of Mirage 2000 and F-16 to Taiwan.
IDF is the contraction of “Indiggenous Defense Fighter.” The development the IDF was a hard time for Taiwan. That is, we have had difficulty getting weapons since the U.S.A. switched the diplomatic recognition from Taiwan to China in 1979. At that time, late President Chiang Ching-Kuo (蔣經國) thought “there is no national defense if there is no ability of air defense.”Accordingly, he decided to develop an indigenous fighter. In 1982, a group, called “self-indepence", was formed. In 1983, there was a turning point, for a project, called “safe flight”, was initiated. In this project, there were four main parts. The first one was about the framework of the fighter. The second one was about engines. The third one was about electronic navigating and radar systems. The last one was about weapon systems. With a great deal of effort, the prototype of the fighter, numbered 1001, was successfully produced eventually and wad named “Ching-Kuo” by former President Lee Deng-hui (李登輝) in December, 1988. The next year,some IDFs joined the air force. In 1994, the first squadron was set up and took charge of air denfense of Taiwan in the Taiwan strait.
In fact, IDF is a brand new fighter. In terms of time, it took 6 years to finish the process. In this regard, the fighter is indeed a miracle in the aircraft industry. On the contrary, it took 20 years for the USA to develop the F-16 by improving F-4 from the 1950’s to the 1970’s. Consequently, our fellow citizens should be proud of our performance.
In April 1997, the first and second IDF regiments was set up in Taichung and Taina air bases. After the 130th IDF was in position, Han-hsian Corpration put an end to the production of IDF in 2000. In view of the process, IDF was indeed an indigenous and high-performed fighter. On the 20th anniversary, IDF not only shoulders the responsibility of the defense of Taiwan in the Tiwan Strait but also represents the pride of Taiwan in terms of self-sufficience in munitions.
