While the fight between Boeing, Dassault and Eurofighter is under way in South Korea to know which of these companies will provide South Korea's new airfighter, the south korean police opened yesterday an investigation for industrial espionage following the discovery of micros in Dassault's office in Seoul...

Who is spying Dassault? No doubt, i think it's Boeing...

According to you, which plane will become South Korea's next generation fighter? F15K, Rafale or Typhoon? (F15K and Rafale are the two favourites)

I would assume that the F-15K will be the winner as it is a fantastic aircraft and Boeing is looking for work.

On the other hand... The Koreans expressed a lot of interest in the Su-35 for the past few years. I don't know why no one mentions it as a front runner.
Being a "fantastic aircraft" is far from being the deciding factor in such cases. Not to mention that the Su-35 is a pretty good choice anyhow.

I think they'll choose f-15k no doubt .Political pression is too strong.But i think that only chance to see who is best is to confront them lets in all categories :
Dogfight;middle range fight,longe range fight,strike capabilities,interception stuffs and so on [not even to mention the money what's better 2 su-35 or 1 f-15 rafale tuphoon or whatever] .
THe winner will be chosen but no chance for that politics is strongest thing and usa rule at SK

Since Communist North Korea has the MIG-29, South Korea will need a fighter like the F-15 that can meet it on equal terms.

If South Korea goes for the F-15, there will be an engine competition between GE's F110 and P&W's F100.
