방한 인니 국방장관 KF-X 분담금 10% 축소, 50억 달러 차관, 현지 생산라인 설비 한국 부담 요구설 무성 F-1..www.munhwa.com
Indonesia invited to attend the roll out ceremony
Indonesia requested their share of KFX be reduced by 10%, 5 billion won in loans (to be used in other sectors such as agriculture), cooperation on a joint submarine project, and a long range air to ground missile implemented
it would be interesting when Indonesia gets both those joint Korean subs and Japanese frigates. Japanese and Korean weapons side by side
also on that site they mentioned fears of the new F-15EX competing with KFX for RoKAF
The Japanese frigate wise.. might have bit of challenge particularly because there already other players in our warship tenders, namely Damen, Babcock and Fincantierri. I saw "8 frigates for potential purchase" but... doesnt seem to be any real move to that area. These contenders are trying to advance itself. the Damen and Babcock seems to have deeper footprint in our bureaucracy, while Fincantierri putting its leverage on Leonardo.
Anyway.. basically 2 Days for rollouts.
I wonder how they compare price wise. I can't imagine the Japanese offer would be cheap.
although its a really nice design.
