AEGU AIR BASE, KOREA (BNS): South Korea has received three more F-15K Slam Eagles from US defence major Boeing.

The aircraft arrived at Daegu Air Base on November 8, a Boeing release said.

The company delivered the first three of 21 F-15Ks it is producing under the Next Fighter II contract to the Republic of Korea (ROKAF) in September.

The remaining 15 aircraft will be delivered through March 2012. Six of the new F-15K Slam Eagles are scheduled to participate in an advanced aerial combat training exercise next year.

The F-15K is an advanced variant of the combat-proven F-15E. Equipped with the latest technological upgrades, it is extremely capable, survivable and maintainable.

The aircraft's service life is planned through 2040, with technology insertions and upgrades throughout its life cycle. Boeing completed delivery of 40 Next Fighter I F-15K aircraft to the ROKAF in October 2008.
