Boeing P-8A MMA Poseidon

Il contenimento del prezzo induce Boeing a sperare in ulteriori ordini ...

Despite competition from maritime patrol aircraft such as the Saab Swordfish and Kawasaki P-1, Boeing says it sees sustained interest in its P-8A Poseidon from Asian and Middle Eastern countries, especially after lowering its cost and adding an additional crew workstation.
Just last week the Royal New Zealand Air Force agreed to buy four of the maritime patrol aircraft for $1.6 billion. And, in June 2018, South Korea purchased four P-8A Poseidons for $1.7 billion.
The sustained interest has the manufacturer projecting that it could sell as many as 200 examples of the aircraft over the type's lifetime, including 75 orders from non-US customers. 
The aircraft has been ordered by the US, UK, Australia, New Zealand, India and Norway.
"Why you are seeing a lot of interest is because we have the price down to the lowest it's ever been," said Matt Carreon, head of global sales and marketing for the aircraft. 
"The costs have gone down over 30 percent from the start of the programme."

A suo tempo gli Indiani hanno scelto Boeing, che presentava un velivolo esistente e consolidato, anzichè EADS-CASA che proponeva un progetto ancora sulla carta.

Ora ... stanno recriminando ... tanto per cambiare ...

Insoddisfazione ...

Quote

Senior officers from the Royal Air Force (RAF) and Royal Navy (RN) have admitted that, despite the UK's closing its Maritime Patrol Aircraft (MPA) gap with the acquisition of nine new Boeing P-8A Poseidons, there are unlikely to be sufficient aircraft to properly address emerging threats and create the required “mass” to have an impact on global maritime operations.
Answering questions from AIN at a recent UK Air Power conference hosted by the Royal Aeronautical Society in London, the two senior officers - who spoke under the Chatham House Rule - said that in ideal circumstances they would like more P-8 Poseidons. 
“Yes, I'd like more P-8s; you'd be surprised if I said I'd like less,” said the RN officer.
The RAF officer concurred, “Of course, we would love more P-8s,” although he outlined to AIN that mass is more than just aircraft numbers and involves a host of other capabilities, including greater connectivity between platforms and acquiring fifth-generation fighters such as the F-35.

For Boeing, the effort made in adapting the 737NG to perform maritime patrol aircraft duties is now paying dividends, although it still has some way to go with turning a profit on its 767-based KC-46A tanker.
The US Navy today has more P-8A Poseidons than the Lockheed Martin P-3 Orions they are replacing, and Australia and India also rely on the type to protect their maritime interests. 
The UK will boost that list of operators from later this year, followed by Norway in 2021, and New Zealand and South Korea also plan to field examples next decade.
