Scope

- South Koreas defense budget stands at US$40.5 billion in 2018, and the country is expected to cumulatively spend US$233.1 billion on its military over the forecast period.The main factors driving this growth are the rapid modernization of the countrys armed forces in recent years.
- During 2014-2018, an average of 30.8% of the countrys total defense budget was allocated to capital expenditure; while an average of 69.2% was reserved for revenue expenditure. This is primarily due to South Koreas future modernization programs. For instance, In March 2015, KAI, the primary contractor for the project, selected the Airbus H155 platform as a foundation for developing LAH-LCH helicopters in both military and civil helicopter configurations. The program plans to commission light civil helicopters (LCH) into service by 2020 and its armed Light Attack Helicopter (LAH) variant by 2022, with the eventual LAH helicopter requirement estimated to be 200 airframes.
- The MoD is expected to invest in Fighters & Multi-Role Aircraft, Fighters and Multi-Role Aircraft MRO, Military IT- Networking, Infrastructure Construction and Attack Helicopters
