Beware of 2012 !

Indonesia and South Korea are ready to begin a joint project on jet fighter production in 2012.  The project would be able to build a jet figther prototype in 2020.

The planned cooperation for the project, dubbed the KF-X project, was initiated in 2006.

The joint project is widely seen as a pilot project for Indonesian military in revitalising defense industry.

Officials say the KF-X would have capabilities  between those of the F-15 and F-16, although they are presumably referring to its size and thrust, since a stealth aircraft fielded in 2020 would be expected to comfortably outperform 1970s-era designs.

Indonesia and Korea will produce as many as 200 fighter jets for both Air Forces.
