    Korea shopping for billions worth of military technology from Russia
    Items on the shopping list

    - S-400 class long range SAM radar(To be used with KL-SAM)
    - EMP protection
    - Jet engine fan/compressor cooling technology
    - Soyuz fuel cell(for use with 3,500 ton AIP sub)
    - Russian EO/IR

    There are 6 other items, but they are unknown for now.

    Nuclear sub reactor isn't on the list, that was transferred a decade ago and Koreans are building "civilian" reactors with that tech until a political agreement is made(particularly with the US) to greenlight the nuclear sub.

    With Koreans also going for S400 it proves that Russian air defence systems are indeed better than americans.

    HUH!? Since when did SK get into Russian bandwagon? But it is great to see that even ROK is moving the independent way by diversification. Already the Japanese Diet has been wary of changes and has revoked the White Paper to open up militarization and possible exports gradually. You know, CCP is going down a needlessly difficult hill when it can easily win hearts and minds with peace and become an Asian favourite.

    Alas! विनाशकालय विपरीतबुद्धि ॥

    Would US allow that tendency? Hatoyama once tried getting "independent". US is for sure reading the minds of little brothers'

    Only Indians who are doing the other way choosing Patriot over the S-400,it would be better to fund the S-500 then engage in its domestic production:)

    I dont think we do.. :)
    We rejected both BMDs, and favoring our own product for now..

    Btw, I should mention India had lots of support for SK in this matter, Its even possible that Russia may allow SK in PAK-FA project discreetly..
