The 455th (former 4th Pursuit Group) TFW was commissioned in 2001 as an F-16A/B FW equipping a training squadron and four TFS. RoCAF General Dynamics (now Lockheed Martin) F-16A Fighting Falcon serial 6814 was manufactured as 93-0835 c/n TB-14 and is assigned to the 22nd FS/455th TFW at Chiayi AB. In 2017 F-16A 6814 received a special paint scheme to commemorate the 80th Anniversary of Nationalist China's victory in the second Sino-Japanese War beginning in 1937 as well as commemorate the RoCAF Sabres' victory over PLAAF MiG-17s on August 14th 1958 ("814 Air Combat").

Lockheed F-16B Fighting Falcon

Designed by General Dynamics as a lightweight, daytime USAF air-combat fighter, the F-16 was first flown on January 20th, 1974. This single-engine, supersonic aircraft has, over the years, evolved into a multirole aircraft. It has a frameless bubble canopy—giving its pilot superior visibility—and it uses advanced aerodynamics. The F-16 was one of the first designs to use a relaxed static stability/fly-by-wire system, which helps it pull 9-g maneuvers and achieve speeds of more than Mach 2. Called "Viper" by its pilots, the F-16 is considered one of the most successful aircraft designs of the Cold War, with 4,400+ aircraft built since 1976.

Hobby Master's 1:72 scale F-16 is constructed using an intelligent mix of diecast metal and plastic, which allows for the greatest possible detail. Among this model's most remarkable features are an articulating hinged opening canopy that closes with almost no visible gap and landing gear that has been constructed as subassemblies for easy configuration. It also includes a large number of pad-printed flight instruments and a rudder and engine intake that are accurately replicated in plastic. The models in this series cover early variants to the most advanced later variants featuring conformal fuel tanks as well as both single and two seat variants.
