Tsai attended the opening ceremony of the 2019 TADTE
at the Taipei World Trade Center Exhibition Hall 1 and toured the defense pavilion, where she viewed the indigenous Jian Hsiang anti-radiation drone, the Teng Yun medium-altitude long-endurance (MALE) drone and experienced the F-16 simulator.
If the model on display at the TADTE
is an accurate representation of the XAT-5, then the jets will not serve a front-line combat role, as the model's wings do not have any missile launch rails equipped.
The anti-radiation UAV developed by National Chung-Shan Institute of Science and Technology (NCSIST) was first exhibited at the 2017 TADTE
, and was compared to the Harpy anti-radiation weapon system.
