National Assembly National Defense Committee approves KRW 67 billion budget for KF-X, Special Committee on Budget and Accounts points out maintenance costs

The subcommittee on budget and accounts of the National Defense Committee approved the KRW 67 billion budget for the KF-X program, which will be discussed at the National Defense Committee meeting tomorrow. Although this is already a 60% cut from the original request of KRW 161.8 billion, whether this itself will be given the final approval is at question with the remarks of the chairman of the National Defense Committee and National Assembly member Jeong Doo-un who stated that the entire project should be reconsidered.

In addition, the Special Committee on Budget and Accounts pointed out that the costs to maintain the newly acquired forces including the F-X, Kill Chain, KAMD, and AH-X. The current budget for maintaining the equipment is set at KRW 2.8 trillion but MND projects this cost to increase to KRW 3.5 trillion by 2020.
