3: These Groups were upgraded from the original Tactical Fighter Squadrons on November 1, 2004, in the largest restructure undertaken by ROCAF since 1999. Each Group is commanded by a Colonel, but the number of aircraft assigned is not much different from that for a Squadron. Although their official English designation is Tactical Fighter Group, the Chinese designation literally means Operations Group.
