F-15K with 19 external store points to carry the maximum of 23,000 lbs of munitions is available to a lot of operations.
F-15K can be suitable to conduct long-distance operations thanks to its maximum fight range of 950NM.
F-15K with 2 powerful engines that produce 29,570lbs of thrust may be the top fighters among its competitors. It will ensure that thrust-to-weight ratio(TWR) to be 1.52 and the maximum speed at Mach 2.3. Those components can help improve maneuverability.
F-15E with the loss rate of 1.5 units per 100,000 flight hours can be reported to hold the lowest record among the current war planes.
Improved radar : AN/APG-63(V)1
Infrared search and track : IRST
Interlocking system of Helmet-Mounted Sight and AIM-9X Missile(Off Bore sight)
Day/night precision navigation and attack System : Tiger Eye(3rd Generation)
The outstanding performance of F-15 has been corroborated by recent warfares such as the Kosovo conflict and the Operation Desert Storm.
Mission Status in the Operation Desert Storm(Gulf War)
Software source cords for avionics, electric warfare, flight control, depot level maintenance equipment, and simulator can be transferable and upgradable.
It will be possible to have test and evaluation on the of new avionics equipment and weapon installation.
Since arms and equipments(D-WASA ammunition) of Air Force are compatible with crypto system it now enables joint operations to be performed well.
Logistics support system is well established for wartime.
Current ROKAF logistics support system will be continuously applied.
Timely and economic logistics support will be ensured to make use of Foreign Military Sales(FMS) and commercial purchase procedures concurrently.
It is possible to supply ammunition for F-15K in low price because mass production is in progress
Most of low level shots(20mm Machine Gun, CBU(Cluster Bomb Unit), MK-82, and Flare, etc.) that are the same with KF-16 ammunitions are the cheaper owing to localization from KFP program.
As R&D cost already is recouped, relatively rising cost factor is small in number and parts price is low while their industrial life cycle is long.
