NEWTOWN, Conn. -- The South Korean government may arm its next generation combat aircraft with the IRIS-T short-range, air-to-air missile. Seoul is working on a domestic fighter under the KF-X program. The KF-X will enter service during the 2020s.

This decision is aimed at lessening South Korea's dependence on the United States for aircraft armaments. South Korea has reportedly already come to an agreement with Diehl for delivery of the IRIS-T.

In addition, South Korea could receive a transfer of air-to-air missile technologies from Diehl and perhaps MBDA, the latter would occur under a separate agreement.

South Korea has long wanted to develop an air-to-air missile to equip its combat aircraft. The state-run Agency for Defense Development (ADD) may already be leading an air-to-air missile design program. Hansha and LIG Nex1 are reportedly competing to be the lead contractor for this air-to-air missile project.
