WASHINGTON - In the first major sale of U.S. military equipment to China, the Reagan administration disclosed that it would sell sophisticated aircraft radar and computers to that nation.
In announcing the $550 million sale of advanced aircraft equipment, anticipated for more than two months, the Pentagon said it would benefit U.S. foreign policy and security "by helping to improve the security of a friendly country which has been an important force for political stability and economic progress in Asia and the world."
The administration's proposal represents a major step in the still-developing U.S.-Chinese relationship, particularly in the unexplored but potentially significant area of arms sales.
But even as the proposal was being announced, it was already drawing sharp criticism. Although the Pentagon said the sale would have no impact on the region's basic military balance, Sen. Barry Goldwater, R-Ariz., chairman of the Armed Services Committee, portrayed it as a step in the potential collapse of Taiwan.
Included in the package will be navigation equipment and a display that allows a pilot to read cockpit instrument data projected on an eye-level screen. This technique allows the pilot to electronically detect and track distant airplanes without removing his eyes from the airspace in front of his craft.
The equipment will be used to modernize 50 Chinese-made F-8 interceptors, which are twin-jet high-altitude warplanes modeled after Soviet MiGs and designed to counter Soviet bombers, an Air Force spokesman said. As a result, the interceptors will be able to fly in all weather conditions.
