5027Stealth Eagle Rejected !?!
- Sep 26, 2013S Korea rejects Boeing; says F-15 not good enough
SEOUL, South Korea
South Korea on Tuesday rejected Boeing Co's bid to supply 60 fighter jets in the country's largest-ever weapons purchase even though it was the sole remaining bidder.
Boeing had offered its F-15 Silent Eagle, but South Korean critics have said the warplane lacks state-of-the-art stealth capabilities and cannot effectively cope with North Korea's increasing nuclear threats.
