World Wide Web intern reporter Raymond reported, according to South Korea, “Chosun Ilbo,” October 14 South Korean Air Force, the price per aircraft of up to 100 billion won (about 6 billion yuan) New F-15K fighter aircraft due to lack of spare parts, the failure can only remove the other fighters on the same model to replace the damaged parts spare parts.
South Korean air force members to the National Assembly’s Defense Commission Kim Jang-soo, the information submitted last year, F-15K of the CSP (also purchase spare parts, Concurrent Spare Parts) compliance rate of 16%, 70% of other fighters – 80% far.
CSP compliance rate, lack of spare parts, so the South Korean Air Force F-15K fighter jets to remove there is a problem with the model for other fighters to use the temporary spare parts. This “shattering” the practice of professional statement was “dismantled maintenance (cannibalization)”.
2006 年 至 2008 年, F-15K fighter dismantled maintenance times were 39, 203 and 350 times, was gradually increasing trend. Although South Korea is in principle prohibited dismantling repair, but usually in emergency situations can be used under the approval of headquarters. Through this approach, Korean Air Force F-15K of the utilization rate of 80% or more, but the problem is there are always 5-6 in no parts of the state, in the regular testing was judged to be “incapable of flight” and is put aside.
this regard, the Korean Air Force, said: “F-15K fighter has only just begun to introduce, the U.S. manufacturer Boeing did not provide complete information and therefore can not accurately forecast demand for spare parts, so it appears that phenomenon. “The Air Force also said:” After a period of time through the accumulation of experience, we can know which loss of large parts, dismantled the phenomenon will be less and less maintenance. “
official Korean Air also said: “Air Force around the world have often used ‘dismantling maintenance’ mode.” But a retired Air Force officer said: “dismantling the ultimate means to use second-hand spare parts service, if such a sensitive weapons fighter zero second-hand accessories, may lead to major accidents. “
information: Concurrent Spare Parts (CSP), also purchase spare parts, aircraft parts in response to the Air Force failed, usually can be purchased in advance using a large number of year parts and put into use immediately when necessary. CSP is the embodiment of spare parts purchased the degree of fit with the actual needs of the target. CSP 16%, indicating that the use of spare parts for one year, only 16% were used for fault repair.
