The Argentine Air Force has selected the Korean Aerospace Industries (KAI) FA-50 Fighting Eagle to be its new interim fighter aircraft, Jane’s reported.
A source familiar with the matter told Jane’s that the final decision might be delayed until after the national presidential elections at the end of October.
According to local media, Argentina is interested in purchasing ten aircraft.
The FA-50 is usually fitted with an ELTA radar, except for a version of the aircraft previously offered to the US. The Fighting Eagle has already been sold, among others, to South Korea, Iraq, the Philippines, Thailand, and Indonesia.
