The Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI) KF-21 Boramae (Northern Goshawk) is a multi-role 4.5 generation fighter. The aircraft is powered by two General Electric (GE) F414-400K turbofan engines. The KF-21 was formerly designated as KF-X until April 2021. The Republic of Korea Air Force (ROKAF) plans to order at least 120 aircraft through 2032 at a projected program cost of more than $15 billion. Indonesia joined the program in 2010 and had planned to order 50 aircraft. The country's long-term participation in the program has since become remote as a result of budgetary pressures and more urgent operational requirements.
