The F-15K is the newest version of the F-15E Strike eagle. The F-15K Strike Eagle has been developed by the American company Boeing and will be the new fighter jet for the Air Force of South-Korea. In 2000, South-Korea started the Next Generation Fighter Program for a new type fighter jet.

On 19 april 2002 South-Korea signed a 2 year long F-X fighter aircraft evaluation program contract with met boeing for the delivering of 40 F-15K Strike Eagle fighter jets with weapons for a amount of 4.2 billion dollar.

F-15K Strike Eagle
The F-15K Strike Eagle is worlds most perfect long-rage, multi-role fighter jet. The F-15K can be used - just like the F-15E - for air-air and air-surface attacks, day and night under all weather conditions.

Radar
The F-15K has worlds newest operational combat radar, the APG-63 (v) 1 developed by Raytheon. A possible update of the radar could be an active electronic scan (AESA). These upgrade reduces the pilot work. The AESA is faster, lighter and better than a radar which is mechanical positioned. It can also change fast frequency, change of beam direction, improved detection capabilities and electronic countermeasures.

The F-15K can carry 23.000 pound weapons. Some weapons are: Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM), Standoff Land Attack Missile-Expanded Response (SLAM-ER), Advanced Medium Range Air-to-Air Missile (AMRAAM), AGM-130 and the AIM-9X Sidewinder missile.
