    The Taiwanese newspaper "Liberty Times" www.libertytimes.com.tw informed that Taiwan had given Nicaragua as a gift, several F-5E fighter jets, in 1997.



    The Nicaraguan Army denies this, and says that they only have an inventory of M-17 Helicopters and AN-26 Airplanes.

    I grabbed the picture from El Nuevo Diario, which grabbed it from somewhere else. This might explain the problem, Nicaragua may actually have this plane but think its something else!

    Here's some additional information. Everyone denies that Taiwan ever donated or sold fighters to Nicaragua.
