South Korean stealth fighter


Recommended Posts

There's an article on the UK Defence Journal website about a new, stealthy fighter project, known as KFX, which has been green lit by the South Korean Govt.  Judging by the artwork it's much more handsome than any current stealthy types.  Apparently they've already spent $7 billion on it before they've even built a prototype!

Can you add a link ?

Wasn't sure if the moderators allowed adding links to outside sites but since I've looked and there are plenty of others on Britmodeller so I guess it's ok.  At first glance it looks like a cross between an F-15 and F-22.

With a bit of F-16 and F-35 for good measure. 

 

Given all the underwing pylons shown it doesn’t look as if it has internal weapons bays. So just how stealthy will it be?

Good question. Hopefully we'll see more details soon.
