Seoul - The KF-21 Boramae made in South Korea and Indonesia which successfully took off with the Meteor missile was called a boon. The reason is, the existence of these missiles proves that the KF-21 Boramae is a fighter jet with a capable attack power.

The KF-21 Boramae is not merely a prototype of an uncertain future. Meteor is an air-to-air missile with Mach 4.5 and a range of 200 km which cannot be avoided by opponents.

Quoted from, a key KAI official said, "The integration of the KF-21 and Meteor systems has been completed and Meteor can be installed from the first mass-production unit." When equipped with high-accuracy and penetrating air-to-ground missiles, the commercial value of the KF-21 soars.

If you can spot the enemy fighter and shoot first, the KF-21 Boramae will be unbeatable. It can also precisely strike ground and underground targets 600 km away.

Meanwhile, the Defense Science Research Institute is developing a domestic long-range air-to-ground site, Germany's Taurus Systems. Taurus System Chairman Joachim Knof who participated in Adex Seoul in October last year said that this is possible. In three years, the cost reduction of the Taurus 350K-2 (upgraded version) which can be installed on Korean fighters such as the KF-21, F-15K, and FA-50 can be co-developed with the 'Made-in-Korea' missile as it is manufactured in Korea. Korea.

Once the domestic long-range air-to-ground aircraft is developed, this missile will soon be installed on the KF-21 Boramae.

Quoted by, the Taurus KEPD 350E is a missile designed to penetrate dense air defenses by utilizing extremely low-level terrain following flight to neutralize high-value stationary and semi-stationary targets.

Its two-stage warhead system is highly effective MEPHISTO. Then, combine the ability to defeat hard and buried targets (HDBT) as well as explosion and fragmentation capabilities to destroy point targets with high value areas. It has a range that can exceed 500 km with a weight of 1,400 kg and a length of 5 m.

As is well known, on July 19, the KF-21 Boramae made its first flight and the flight was pretty good. The sweat and tears of the KAI employees have paid off.

The KF-21 alone underwent more than 2,200 thin ice flight tests over four years. The final success of the development of the KF-21 Boramae, which is comparable to the Rafale, F-15, and F-35, will increase.
