Taiwan media announced new military procurement. It is reported that the Pentagon has approved the sale of MQ-8 Fire Scout unmanned helicopter systems to Taipei. This makes Taiwan the first export customer of the MQ-8B Fire Scout platform.

Platform can be controlled with NATO STANAG 4586-compatible Tactical Control System (TCS) at a distance of 110 nautical miles.
