SEOUL, Nov. 2 (Yonhap) -- South Korea's Air Force will receive its first aerial refueling tanker this month to drastically increase the operational radius of its fighters, a military official said Friday.

The official said the Air Force's first tanker plans to arrive in South Korea on Nov. 12 and receive various acceptance tests for about one month.

Acceptance evaluations are a procedure to check whether the quality requirements specified for weapons and equipment delivered to the military have been met. System construction, maintenance, and the aeronautical and logistics sectors, as well as the implementation of normal air-to-air refueling, are subject to the inspection.
