ABSTRACT
The article reports on a decision by the South Korean government to revise the requirements for its next fighter jet and suggested that it will likely buy the stealth-capable Lockheed Martin F-35, as of November 2013. The South Korean government plans to purchase 40 aircraft and added stealth technology to the requirements in making a selection. The new requirement seemed to heavily favor Lockheed Martin and the F-35.
