◎ F-15K Fighter Program is the largest project which Republic of Korean Air Force has ever launched. The airframe is directly purchased from the Boeing Company and the F110-STW-129 engines are manufactured by Samsung TechWin under license with General Electrics. Ammunition is purchased through the Foreign Military Sales (FMS) from United states Government.
◎ The F-15K Strike Eagle, which is an enhanced version of the combat-proven F-15E Strike Eagle currently in operation for United States Air Force, is capable of simultaneously performing air-to-air and air-to-surface missions without reconfiguration. It does not require an escort fighter because it also provides outstanding performance in the self-escort role.
◎ The F-15K Strike Eagle will replenish the deficiency of the war potential due to the fade-out of aging fighter aircraft and ensure the minimal level of deterrence power.
