South Korea will expand the identification zone of its air defense
"Patriot missile systems will form the backbone of the Korean air defense and missile defense system, designed to combat North Korean ballistic missiles," said Defense Department spokesman Baek Yong-hyun.
South Korea currently has 48 Patriot PAK-2 missiles purchased in Germany and intends to purchase more modern weapons as part of the creation of an independent air and missile defense system (KAMD).
This project provides for cooperation with the American company Raytheon in the modernization of the PAK-2014 control system during the period from 2020 to 2, which will also allow it to be used to launch the PAK-3 rocket. This modification has higher tactical and technical data and is capable of shooting down rockets at altitude.
