South Korea showed a new air-launched anti-ship missile

South Korea for the first time presented the appearance of the latest supersonic anti-ship missile designed to arm the promising KF-X fighter. It is reported by Naval News.


According to the newspaper, the new 400 mm anti-ship missile system equipped with an air-jet engine will be able to hit targets at a distance of up to 500 km. The missile is being developed by the South Korean company LIG Nex1 and the Agency for Defense Development (ADD) of the Ministry of Defense of the republic.

The characteristics of the new anti-ship missile were not disclosed, it is reported that the flight tests of the new ammunition are scheduled for 2026, and the adoption into service at the end of this decade. The rocket is intended for the promising KF-X fighter, the development of which should be completed by 2026.

The newest fighter in South Korea is positioned as a generation 4,5 aircraft. It should surpass the fourth generation fighters in its capabilities, but at the same time it should not be the fifth generation aircraft.

Earlier, KAI said that the rollout of the first flight prototype of the KF-X fighter is scheduled for April 2021. The first flight of the prototype fighter is planned for 2022, serial production - 2026.

From the point of view of aerodynamic configuration, it is almost a complete "copy" of the American F-22, but a little smaller. It is planned to install two General Electric F414 engines. The maximum take-off weight is 25,4 tons. Speed ​​- up to Mach 1,9. 10 suspension points for rockets, bombs and various overhead containers.

      How to say.
      It seems like the South Koreans have achieved a lot in economic development, and they plan to install engines from General Electric.
      This is about the same as with Turkish drones - the Turks were proud of them and apparently thought that successes in the war with Karabakh would bring them great profits from the sale of drones around the world, but it only turned out that, in particular, they stopped supplying engines from abroad and here the Turkish dream has turned into zilch.
      This is what it means when a product comes with other people's components. Russia has repeatedly stepped on this rake and is now trying to implement import substitution with titanic efforts. So foreign engines are still a problem.

              And why should she be?

              For example, after the end of WWII, the Dokdo Islands began to belong to South Korea, but Japan considers them occupied (roughly as in relation to the Kuril Islands) and makes claims to South Korea for the right of ownership.

              Should there be any confusion between the Koreans and the Japanese, both of them will use all their arsenals of weapons, which, by coincidence, are either 100% created by the United States or have a fairly large package from the United States.

              That is why such literate and pragmatic Yankees impose their military-industrial complex products, and not only, on foreign "partners", so that they are either 100% dependent on them or in such dependence that did not allow them to act independently enough and limited their actions.

            Korea has the most effective system in terms of preventing this from happening. There, even for a second term, it is forbidden to be re-elected, and responsibility before the court for the outgoing president has become a good tradition.

        This is not at all true. Turbojet engines for aviation, especially military, are made by 5-6 countries. USA, France, UK, Russia and China. Japan, Germany and Ukraine can do ... this is the elite.

      We are also developing something similar for the Su-57. A year ago, information on anti-ship missiles for the Su-57 passed.
      .MOSCOW, February 23. / TASS /. A small-sized internal-fuselage hypersonic missile was developed for the Russian fifth-generation fighter Su-57, and a prototype of the ammunition was created. Sources in the military-industrial complex told TASS on Sunday.


      "The enterprises of the Russian military-industrial complex have created a prototype of a small-sized hypersonic air-to-surface missile for intra-fuselage placement on the Su-57 fighter," said one of the agency's interlocutors.

      Another source confirmed the creation of a prototype and clarified that "the rocket has not yet been tested together with the carrier aircraft." The interlocutors did not disclose the characteristics of the latest ammunition.

        It's cool for the South Koreans KAI, for the Turks TAI the name of the aircraft building firms. South Korea has a 5th generation fighter KF-X, the Turks have TF-X. In fact, the differences in the names are only K instead of T. Yes, and if you look closely at the performance characteristics and the design of the KF- X and TF-X, the question arises and not the same machine. The Turks have already copied the tank from the Koreans, calling it Altai.

                    the Japanese are lovers of design and shapes, I remember how in the 00s they amused their devices from the household and radio-electronic areas, for the domestic market, I went with one similar myself in 2005, few people understood that it was a PDA with a flip and two screens (on a flip there was a monochromatic ...), then there were almost no such people in Russia and Europe ... and on board there was some kind of Linux assembly (a) .., with our GSM, or rather with sim-carts, it did not work in general, that's why I used it exactly like PDA + WLAN!

      We would have such a fleet, even in the next 10 years, which the Republic of Kazakhstan has ALREADY created. Destroyers King Sejun and promising UDC and diesel-electric submarines.

      I think the boats have more air defense and the destroyer will have enough air defense to repel the missile and shoot down the launcher

    this, for sure ... and you can't say that they were isolated from the rest of Humanity during the Renaissance!

    they took the industrial revolution, which we made for 200 years, in 50-60 years.
