Boeing moves closer to winning $7.64B South Korean fighter-jet deal

  • The officials managing South Korea's 8.3T won ($7.64B) tender for new fighter aircraft, including the defense minister, have reportedly briefed President Park Geun-hye that Boeing's (BA) F-15 Silent Eagle proposal is the only eligible bid.
  • Boeing's offer was the only one of three that came in under budget, with the other two being a proposal from Lockheed (LMT) for F-35s and one from the Eurofighter consortium for the Typhoon.
  • The briefing comes despite 15 former air force chiefs signing a petition opposing the selection of the F-15 due to concerns over its capabilities.
  • The defense minister is now expected to chair a meeting of the decision-making committee next week.

    The McDonnell F-15SE is still on the drawing board and it’s should be volitions of International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) (is a set of United States Government regulations that control the export and import of defense-related articles of ITAR) to export a Stealth Flightier outside the United State


    Boeing already has 110 violations of ITAR
