Military Review

The Republic of Korea has begun to create a prototype of its own fighter of a new generation.

62
South Korea has embarked on an expensive project involving the creation of the Korean Fighter Experimental (KF-X) 5 generation fighter, reports MIC with reference to the country's Defense Ministry.




It is planned that “by 2021, the company Corea Airspace Industries will produce the first six prototypes of the combat vehicle,” the agency notes.

“Then over the course of four years, the fighter’s flight tests will go on, and mass production can begin in the 2026 year,” the report says.

According to the ministry, “by 2032, the 120 of such combat vehicles will be supplied to the Air Force.”

The new fighters will replace the outdated F-4 and F-5 vehicles, which are currently the basis of the RK air force.

The cost of the project to date was $ 14,9 billion. Indonesia took part in it. Support is provided by the United States, which provides modern military technology to Seoul.

        The layout of the KF-X glider resembles the F-35 and also seems to be single-engine. A trend has been observed in the development of fifth-generation combat aircraft: the West has relied on a single-engine scheme, and Russia and China on a two-engine one.

          "Corea Airspace Industries"

          - It’s not funny for us, how does it sound in Russian? It was easier (and more pleasant for the eyes) to translate: "Korean aerospace industry", for example. And the plane, yes, it looks like it will be tracing paper from the F-35. But maybe the Koreans will bring it to mind.

          Why? The Americans also have a twin-engine apparatus of the 5 generation. ATD-X Japanese, for example, is being developed with two engines. Yes, and the Korean - with two.

For a decade and a half, Lockheed's constructors have been cramming the unproductive, trying to make a "universal soldier", but to no avail .. Something with the concept itself is not the same, it seems.

Tembolee now does not even have the concept of the 6th generation, I read that they will work on something called `` morphosity '' but this is still more fantasy.

      Something Americans muddied ...
      Lockheed Martin, an American company, refused to transfer four technologies used in the development of the promising F-35 Lightning II fighter to South Korea. According to Defense Aerospace, the Koreans planned to use these technologies in creating their own KF-X fighter, the development of which should be completed by 2025. Due to the impossibility of agreeing on a transfer, South Korea intended to abandon the project, but now decided to continue the development of the KF-X. South Korea planned to receive from Lockheed Martin the technology of a radar station with an active phased array, infrared search and tracking system, and electron-optical aiming system and electronic suppression equipment. The South Korean Defense Procurement Authority announced that it intends to request all the information important for the creation of this equipment from other countries and research centers.

      The US government banned Lockheed Martin from sharing F-35 technology back in April of this year, but negotiations continued until the end of September. It should be noted that technology transfer was specified in the offset agreement to the main contract for the supply of 40 F-35A fighter jets to South Korea. This agreement was signed in September 2014. The deal amounted to 7,3 trillion won (6,3 billion dollars).

    To create a 5th generation fighter in the Western world, with the availability of funds, you can. Technologies are in different countries of varying degrees of modernity. But there can be problems with export. The Swedes wanted to sell influenza in Argentina, the British vetoed, because part of the equipment was BEA systems. and all, there is no export. The Turks wanted Altai to sell a veto to Azerbaijan-Germany on MTU engines. The problem is that the 5th generation fighter is an expensive thing and you need to build from 100 copies to pay off. How much do you need South Korea with Indonesia aircraft? And there will be no free export. And the technology is expensive.
