Boeing's F-15SE likely to win Korea's $7.4 bil. fighter jet deal
When the South Korean government announces the winner of its 7.4 billion dollar contract to buy 60 advanced fighter jets next month, it appears likely that the Boeing F-15 Silent Eagle will get the nod.
The Defense Acquisition Program Administration said Sunday that one of the two remaining finalists had been disqualified after abruptly changing its contractual terms.
The bidder was later said to be the European Aeronautic Defence and Space Company with its Eurofighter Typhoon.
The multi-billion dollar competition was narrowed to a two-way race between Boeing and EADS last week after the two firms made bids within Korea's budget.
