PAK FA will become a participant of the Korean tender

PAK FA will become a participant of the Korean tenderThe Russian company Sukhoi announced its intention to offer a promising T-50 fighter (PAK FA) to the tender for the South Korean Air Force, according to The Korea Times. The tender, announced at the beginning of 2011, is being carried out as part of the third phase of the South Korean FX Air Force Modernization Program. According to the newspaper, Sukhoi will apply for participation in the Korean tender at the end of 2011. The South Korean Military Procurement Office (DAPA) is expected to announce the tender winner in October 2012 of the year.


Earlier, DAPA announced that it has simplified the conditions for participation in the FX III tender so that it can accept as many participants as possible. As part of the competition, the South Korean Air Force plans to acquire 60 fighter aircraft for a total of 8,29 trillion won (7,9 billion dollars). American companies Boeing and Lockheed Martin and the European consortium Eurofighter are already taking part in the tender. They offered the F-15 Silent Eagle, F-35 Lightning II and Typhoon fighters to the competition, respectively.

According to the South Korean agency "Renhap", DAPA has already made a short list of candidates to win the tender FX III. It includes F-15SE, F-35, Typhoon and T-50. What other aircraft were submitted to the competition, not specified. Meanwhile, according to The Korea Times, the PAK FA and Typhoon have virtually no chance of winning the fighter tender, since the political aspect will play a significant role in choosing the aircraft - South Korea has long been an ally of the United States, with which the country has established a strong military technical cooperation.

The Russian side has not officially confirmed its intention to take part in the South Korean tender. At the end of 2010, Russia signed a contract with India for the joint development of the fifth-generation FGFA fighter, which will be based on the T-50. FGFA will be armed with the Indian Air Force. In addition, both sides intend to supply the fighter for export.

    In such circumstances, we should not tender our car. Gosha! - T-50 and F-15 on the same bar ...

      But lightning is also in the tender, it sometimes holds the bar with ours and the needles are more likely to hang with the eurofighter on the bar!

    And our promising aircraft do not need what? Still, we have a strange relationship between the Defense Ministry and the military-industrial complex. We supply half the world with modern weapons, and there is always not enough money for our aircraft. Only modernization (ie, "overhaul") of Soviet technology.

    The Siberian is already a tribute to tradition over the past 15-20 years, at first the new products will be steamed over the hill, including a potential adversary (the story with the Shell is a vivid example of such examples of horseradish cloud). Now the T-50 glider will be pushed through (very interesting: the T-50 herrr Poghosyan and the companies will offer this product with the corresponding filling, well, of course, it will already fully have integrated BSU ??? Ali, how?)
    Well, and the army, for the parades, we can and threw (God forbid, we don’t need) circumcised versions - or am I wrong that the castrates have been delivered to the troops lately?

      In no case should we touch the state - even if it is an oligarchic one (Putin seems to have found some balance with them) - we will begin perestroika and lose Belarus and Kazakhstan and the chances of reunification with Ukraine.

      To continue the begun rearmament - to restore the ruined VPK - to take all the technology from the west until they give it - to put Europe on a gas needle - to turn Europe into a demilitarized zone where our head will stop hurting. With China, "friendship" is based on armed parity. Focuses on the dangers of Pindosovsky pro and the Arctic. After combining the enlargement and rearmament, get away from the dollar and forced "tribute" in the form of allocation of funds from the Pindos

      Taburetkina and iPod (who already inspires fear in everyone with their resemblance to Gorbachev) urgently down with the assistants and close oligarchs
      Putin and his group of oligarchs endure and try to move and direct towards the social state. All strategic state-owned companies (Putin’s result by the way) should be left as islands of socialism — or state capitalism
      No autonomy to the regions - no elections and democracy - local bandits and oligarchs (and nat princes) lead to complete military discipline

      But all this horror and iPods - stools (like a bad dream still seems to me) would not be preserved if we were the USSR
