Brick Models of Korean Military Arms to be Released


SEOUL, Jan. 17 (Korea Bizwire)South Korea’s indigenous fighter jet KF-21 and K-9 artillery guns will be made available in the commercial market as brick-assembled toys.

The Defense Acquisition Program Administration (DAPA) joined hands with local toy maker Oxford Co. to release miniature models of the KF-21, also known as the Boramae, within the first quarter of this year.

Dubbed a 4.5-generation fighter, the KF-21 is the country’s first homegrown fighter aircraft. Its prototype will go through static testing with a maiden flight scheduled for July.


A total of 120 KF-21s will be deployed by 2032, replacing old fighter jets like the F-4 and F-5.

Oxford also plans to release brick models of the Dosan Ahn Changho-class submarine, K-9 Thunder self-propelled howitzer and other weapons and armaments made in South Korea.
