Meteor missile for KF-X fighter
The contract includes integration support to KAI, transfer of know-how and manufacture of test equipment for the KF-X integration and trials campaign.
Meteor is beyond visual range air-to-air missile that uses a ramjet propulsion system to fly further and faster and defeat manoeuvring targets at long ranges.
Éric Béranger, CEO of MBDA, said: ‘We’re very pleased to mark this next and important step in our partnership with KAI and the Korean Defence Acquisition Program Administration. South Korea is a strategic market for MBDA, and we’re proud that Meteor will be providing KF-X with the world’s most potent air-to-air capability.’
