Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman is said to have instructed the Saudi Ministry of Defense to explore options outside of Western sources for a new generation fighter.
This comes in parallel to Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI) actively seeking export partners for South Korea's indigenous KF-21 fighter jet.
In this context, Saudi Assistant Defense Minister Talal Bin Abdullah Bin Turki Al-Otaibi is said to have initiated contacts with South Korean entities concerning the KF-21.
Tactical Report has prepared a report (255 words) to highlight this matter, including:
- Al-Otaibi’s requests from South Korea
- The Saudi conditions to proceed with negotiations
