Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI) signed a 110-billion-won ($99-million) deal with the Defense Acquisition Program Administration (DAPA) to add new equipment to the fleet used by DAPA and the Republic of Korea Air Force, KAI announced in a statement on Monday.

KAI signed a 76.1-billion-won contract to install Identification, friend or foe (IFF) and Link 16 tactical datalink systems on the fleet of FA-50 light attack aircrafts by 2025, with an additional 37.4 billion won to install IFF on the aerobatic and combat variants of the T-50, TA-50, T-50 and T-50B by 2023.
