South Korea intends to buy Northrop Grumman Global Hawk unmanned aircraft, Reuters reported March 24 quoting the South Korean weapons acquisition agency.

South Korea’s Defense Acquisition Program Administration (DAPA) said in a statement that the purchase would be made through the US Foreign Military Sales (FMS) program, Reuters said, and will cover four Global Hawk unmanned aircraft worth about 880 billion won ($814.63 million). The first delivery will take place by 2018, according to “a source briefed on the matter.”
