WASHINGTON - The U.S. Air Force has awarded Raytheon Missile Systems a $25 million contract for for production of the Griffin A Block III missile. The Griffin missile system is an air- and ground-launched, precise, low-collateral-damage weapon.

The U.S. Air Force operates two versions of the Griffin: the A is an aft-eject missile, while the B is a forward-fired version. The U.S. Air Force uses the Griffin on its AC-130 gunship aircraft. Raytheon has produced variants of the Griffin missile since 2008.

Work on this contract will be complete by December 1, 2017. The production facility for the Griffin missile is located in Tucson, Arizona.

SEOUL - South Korea will increase its defense budget for next year by 4 percent. The South Korean military will receive a record-high 40.34 trillion won ($34 billion). The National Assembly has approved a 400.5 trillion won government spending plan. South Korean military spending will account for 10 percent of the country’s overall budget.

The lion's share in the budget increase will be for deploying the "Kill Chain" strike system and the Korean Air and Missile Defense (KAMD) by mid-2020. The Kill Chain and the KAMD are designed to detect and destroy incoming missiles in the shortest possible time.

These anti-missile systems will receive an additional 170 billion won in 2017. The budget for 2017 is 1.75 trillion won.

BEIJING - China conducted a large scale test of its strategic ballistic missile force. Beijing fired a salvo of 10 missiles in November. The simultaneous flight tests involved the DF-21 intermediate-range ballistic missile (IRBM). Chinese officials say the DF-21s can destroy any U.S. military base in the Asia-Pacific region.

The DF-21 is comparable to the U.S. Pershing II intermediate-range missile. The Pershing II was retired as part of the U.S.-Russian INF (Intermediate Range Nuclear Forces) treaty.
