تايوان تقوم بمراجعه شامله لمقاتلة الميراج 2000 بسبب وجود شقوق فى المحرك



Taipei, Oct. 18 (CNA) National Defense Minister Kao Hua-chu said Monday that he will ask for an overall review of the country's French-made Mirage fighter jets after a lawmaker pointed out that the flight hours of the fighters have been reduced due to concern about a possible engine problem.
Legislator Lin Yu-fang of the ruling Kuomintang told a legislative committee that during maintenance operations in May 2009, the engine rotors were found to have cracks, resulting in reduced flying hours.
In May this year, a Mirage fighter jet belonging to the French Air Force crashed in southwestern France, possibly due to the same engine fault.
For this reason, the total flying hours of Taiwan's Mirage jets were reduced to less than 5,000 this year from the original target of more than 10,000 hours.
"The flying hours of the Mirage pilots were also reduced from the standard 15 hours per month to 10 hours, even lower than the 12 hours per month logged by Chinese fighter jet pilots, " Lin said, adding that this has affected the nation's air defenses.
Taiwan purchased 60 Mirage-2000s fighter jets from France in 1992, the last batch of which was delivered in 2001. Fifty-six of the planes remain in service, with four having been lost in crashes. (By Emmanuelle Tzeng and Lilian Wu) ENDITEM/J 
أمر وزير الدفاع التايوانى بمراجعه شامله لجميع مقاتلات الميراج 2000 فرنسية الصنع
بسبب وجود شقوق فى المحرك تم إكتشافها أثناء عملية صيانه أجريت فى عام 2009
مما أدى إلى خفض ساعات الطيران بالمقاتله 
وقد تسبب ذلك فى ضعف جاهزية الدفاع عن أجواء البلاد
وقد تحطمت مقاتله ميراج تابعه لسلاح الجو الفرنسى فى جنوب غرب فرنسا
فى شهر مايو من العام الحالى وربما يكون السبب هو نفس الشقوق التى إكتشفت
فى محركات المقاتلات التايوانيه
ويذكر أن تايوان قد اشترت 60 مقاتله ميراج 2000 من فرنسا فى عام 1992
وتسلمت أخر مقاتله فى عام 2001
والموجود فى الخدمه حاليآ 56 مقاتله بسبب تحطم أربع مقاتلات أثناء طلاعات تدريبيه
