Modern South Korean Air Power

Modern South Korean Air Power

Since the early 1950s, the heavily industrialized nation of South Korea has seen steady growth and is now the world's seventh-largest exporter and 11th-largest economy overall. As the Cold War on the Korean peninsula gathered momentum, the development of the Republic of Korea Air Force became one of the nation's top priorities. While initially dependent on the United States for its aircraft, Korea's aviation industry has matured rapidly, and the ROKAF's use of indigenously manufactured equipment is on the rise.Modern South Korean Air Power provides a detailed look at the aircraft and armament, as well as the organization and the modernization process of the Republic of Korea Air Force.
