4 consecutive paragraphs:

"美國國防部國防安全合作局昨公布F-16 C/D Block70戰機(將一併升級為F-16V)的對台軍售清單,包括六十六架戰機、七十五組「F-110GE」發動機 [to upgrade Taiwan's existing F-16 A/Bs]、七十五組戰術數位資訊鏈路「Link-16」系統等軍備之外,還包含三套GBU-54「雷射導引聯合直攻彈藥」(LJDAM)[L for laser] 的導引段套件。

"「LJDAM」可由轟炸機或戰鬥機投放,最大射程約廿八公里。

"台海安全研究中心主任梅復興指出,此軍備等於是裝設雷射尋標器的五百磅衛星導引炸彈,精確度達僅用GPS導引的聯合直攻炸彈(JDAM)六倍,適合對高價值目標執行全天候精準打擊。

"事實上,美國政府在二○一七年同意售我國「AGM-154」滑翔炸彈及「AGM-88」高速反輻射飛彈,強化我國F-16戰機「空對面」打擊能力。軍方官員表示,如我國確定採購「LJDAM」,將進一步強化F-16戰機的運用彈性。

(i) There is no need to red the rest of this Liberty Times report.
(ii) Joint Direct Attack Munition
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joint_Direct_Attack_Munition
(JDAM; JDAM is not a stand-alone weapon; was jointly developed by the United States Air Force and United States Navy, hence the 'joint' in JDAMl table  In service 1997- )
(iii) AGM-154 Joint Standoff Weapon
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AGM-154_Joint_Standoff_Weapon
(JSOW, where "Joint" means cooperative development (of the missile) by both US Navy and Air Force; see table for both "In service 1998-present" and "Operational range")

"F-16V被稱為是「亞洲最強中輕型戰機」

"縮短起飛距離部分, [國防部智庫、國防安全研究院資源與產業研究所長] 蘇紫雲提到,F-16V可以配置F-110 GE-129或F-100 PW-229發動機,無論哪一型,相較舊型的發動機多出18%的推力,可以協助F-16V縮短起飛距離50公尺以上(舊型起飛距離約520公尺),同時可提高爬升率至每秒260公尺

"若美方同意出售適型油箱,滯空能力約可增加30%,對於延長打擊半徑及增加滯空時間、減少進場整補的需求,都有助增加存活能力。

"三、F-16V為什麼可能部署台東? * * * 美國5月3日公布中國軍力報告書 * * * 蘇紫雲認為,S-400的射程雖然達400公里,照推論射程應涵蓋台灣全島,但這份報告書中為何認為台東志航基地不在射程內,他推測,五角大廈是將地球曲度、南大武山海拔約2800公尺等地形因素納入計算。

(a) The F-16 A/B --what President George HW Bush sold to Taiwan (announced in 1992) had F100-PW-220 engine, which was upgraded to -229 in the 2011 Congressional Notification. See F-16 Fighting Falcon. Globalsecirity.com. undated
https://www.globalsecurity.org/military/world/taiwan/f-16.htm
("Replacing the Block 20’s existing F100-PW-220 turbofan engines (23,930-lb thrust) was originally proposed as part of the upgrade, and the Congressional Notification even included an engineering study for a power plant upgrade using the F100-PW-229 (29,160-lb thrust) engine. But Taiwan decided not to go ahead with an engine upgrade for the F-16A/B fleet, at least for the time being, mainly out of cost considerations. The engine replacement, together with several other minor upgrade items, would have cost an additional US$1.8 billion (NT$52.95 billion), beyond the originally estimated US$5.3 billion (NT$156.38 billion) in the September 2011 Congressional Notification. upgrading the existing F100-PW-220 engine to a new, higher-thrust, and more efficient power plant would have allowed TAF [Raiwan Air Force] to extend the useful service life of the upgraded Block 20 fleet well into the 2030s")
