The Republic of Korea Air Force (ROKAF) has received three more Boeing F-15K Slam Eagles under the next fighter II contract at Daegu Air Base, South Korea.

The F-15K is an advanced variant of the combat-proven F-15E, and is equipped with the latest technological upgrades.

The aircraft’s service life is planned up to 2040, with technology insertions and upgrades throughout its lifecycle.

Six of the new F-15K Slam Eagles are scheduled to participate in an advanced aerial combat training exercise at Nellis Air Force Base, Nevada, US, in late 2011.

The ROKAF received the first three of 21 F-15Ks in September and the remaining 15 aircraft will be delivered before March 2012.

Boeing completed delivery of 40 next fighter I F-15K aircraft to the ROKAF in October 2008.
