MINDEF announced that the Boeing F-15SG Strike Eagle had won the contract over the Rafale. The RSAF embarked on its Next Generation Fighter (NGF) programme to replace the aging A-4SU Super Skyhawks. The original list of competitors was shortlisted to the final two – Dassault Rafale and the F-15SG Strike Eagle. The DSTA (Defense Science & Technology Agency) conducted detailed technical assessment, simulations and other tests to assess the final selection. The initial order is for 12 aircraft with 8 options. Eventually, as many as 60 aircraft may be procured in several batches.
