indian's medium multi role combact aircraft

Recommended Posts

Se è per quello, andando indietro nel tempo, anche Saab stava già offrendo il suo Gripen (http://www.janes.com/article/61257/saab-offers-to-make-gripen-e-fighter-in-india) come d'altra parte ricordato nell’articolo di RID che avevo postato: “India: che succede dopo i RAFALE?”

 

Vedremo, dunque, se dopo questi 36 velivoli, l'India deciderà di acquistare altri RAFALE o se opterà per un altro modello considerando che molte aziende - da Lockheed Martin a Saab, passando per Boeing – stanno offrendo all'India i loro caccia. Nel novero dei pretendenti bisogna aggiungere ovviamente anche i Russi che stanno spingendo forte il caccia pesante super-manovrante Su-35S

 

Appunto, mi ricollegavo a quell’articolo e a ciò che sarebbe successo dopo (e nonostante) la firma coi francesi: qui l’autore dell’articolo è stato gentilmente invitato in Svezia.

I futuri caccia mono-motore per l'India ...
Lockheed Martin e Tata si alleano ...

Lockheed Martin has committed to manufacturing the F-16 in India should it win the air force’s single-engined fighter competition, and has signed a deal with Tata Advanced Systems to carry out this work in-country.
A letter of intent was signed between the two companies at the show, which could lead to manufacture of Block 70 variants of the fourth-generation fighter.
It is being pitched against the Saab Gripen for the programme, which expects to see multiple hundreds of units purchased.

I futuri caccia mono-motore per l'India ...
Saab ha scelto il proprio partner ...

Saab of Sweden and Indian infrastructure conglomerate Adani Group have forged a partnership to build Gripen E aircraft and work on other aerospace programs in the Asian country.
The Sept. 1 announcement means India’s single-engine fighter aircraft competition worth $12 billion is now shortlisted between the Saab-Adani partnership and Lockheed Martin of the U.S. in a tie-up with India’s Tata Advanced Systems Limited.
”The intended collaboration would encompass design, development and production of Gripen for India and other high-tech products of national importance for India and also the creation of joint ventures in India in line with and in support of the Make In India policy,” according to a Saab news release.
Lockheed Martin is pitching its F-16 Block 70 aircraft, whereas Saab is fielding the upgraded Gripen E in response to the expression of interest sent to select aerospace companies through foreign Indian embassies in November 2016.
“Our plans in India are to create a new defense eco-system that would involve many partners, vendors and suppliers. To achieve this, we need a strong Indian partner who can help create the framework for the infrastructure and eco-system to come into place,” said Håkan Buskhe, CEO and president of Saab.
The president of Adani group, Gautam Adani, said: “We are proud of our enduring relationship with Saab and look forward to partnering in major projects such as Gripen. Our various collaborations in aerospace and defence sectors will help establish new production lines in India, generate employment and build sustainable skills.”

India's defence ministry has scrapped a $500 million deal with Israeli guided weapons specialist Rafael, instead asking its Defence Research and Development Organisation to provide an indigenous alternative.
Rafael had been teamed with local company Kalyani Strategic Systems to supply Spike series missiles for use by India's land forces, including helicopter-launched examples.

I futuri caccia (non più) mono-motore per l' India ... ALTRO GIRO ... ALTRA CORSA ... :wip41:

A global competition to sell more than 100 fighters to the Indian air force re-opened for the third time in a decade on 6 April.
The IAF released a 73-page request for information to six companies to supply 110 single and twin-seat fighters over a maximum of 12 years.
Facing a 3 July deadline, responses are expected from the Boeing F/A-18E/F Block III, Dassault Rafale F3R, Eurofighter Typhoon, Lockheed Martin F-16 Block 70, United Aircraft Corp MiG-35 and Saab Gripen E.
--- --- ---
The IAF scrapped that contest two months ago under pressure from the Indian Congress to consider single- and twin-engined fighters.
The new RFI re-opens the competition to twin-engined fighters made in the USA, Western Europe and Russia.

I futuri caccia (non più) mono-motore per l'India ... ALTRO GIRO ... ALTRA CORSA ...
PARTE SECONDA ... come prevedibile ... solo e soltanto fumo ...

The Indian air force has launched a very ambitious $19.5 billion program to buy 110 military fighters.
The problem is, the country’s Ministry of Defense says it is only a fact-finding exercise and there is no commitment from the government on the program as of now.
The IAF on April 6 issued a Request for Information or RFI to all major global aviation companies to bid on the 110 fighter buy.
Without mentioning the requirement of single or twin engine fighters, the service is seeking 82 single-seat and 28 twin-seat fighters.
The RFI says that, “under the program, 16 aircraft will bring in fly away condition. The selected overseas original equipment manufacturers ... will be asked to set up production line with Indian production agency under strategic partner’s policy”.
This RFI only outlines the fighter’s requirements for the service but there is no firm commitment from the government and it is not a firm procurement proposal,” one MoD official told Defense News.

Morto & sepolto ... forse ...

The proposal for India and Russia to jointly develop an advanced fighter — the eponymous Fifth Generation Fighter Aircraft (FGFA) — has been formally buried.
Business Standard has learnt that National Security Advisor Ajit Doval conveyed the decision to a Russian ministerial delegation at a “Defence Acquisition Meeting” in end-February.
Doval and Defence Secretary Sanjay Mitra, who attended the meeting, asked the Russians to proceed alone with developing their fifth-generation fighter.
They said India might possibly join the project later, or buy the fully developed fighter outright, after it entered service with the Russian Air Force.

Nubi in vista per il 'Rafale' ... ☔

Quote

As India’s general elections draw closer this year, the deal signed in 2016 for 36 Dassault Rafales is getting attention in parliament as opposition political parties brawl over the contract they label as a “scam and graft,” while promising to make it an election issue against the present Narendra Modi government.
Charges leveled against the government-to-government deal include lack of transparency on details and a cost that is claimed to be much higher than that negotiated in early 2012. 
That year, the Rafale emerged as the winner for the Indian Air Force’s 126 medium multi-role combat aircraft program. 
Negotiations by congress were not taken further due to unresolved issues on the transfer of technology and offsets between Dassault and Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd.
The flyaway costs of the aircraft being supplied by Dassault Aviation now are less than those negotiated six years ago but, “the Meteor and Scalp missiles and India’s nuclear specifications are what have made the price slightly higher,” a retired chief of air force told AIN, adding that, “This is much ado about politics.”

India ... la banda degli onesti ...

Quote

Former Union ministers Yashwant Sinha and Arun Shourie on Wednesday teamed up with activist-lawyer Prashant Bhushan to assert that the Rafale fighter aircraft deal was the “biggest defence scam ever”, and accused the BJP-led Centre of “compromising national security”.
The trio told a press conference here that the purchase of 36 Rafale jets from France is a “textbook case of criminal misconduct” by the government. 
Shourie said the deal was a “scandal much bigger than Bofors” and needs an urgent forensic audit to fix accountability. 
He said the secrecy clause in the agreement with France only binds India from revealing the technical specifications and operational capabilities of the aircraft, but does not restrain the government from disclosing the price.

Lockheed Martin will shift production of wings for the F-16 fighter to India’s Tata Advanced Systems, as it ups the ante in its effort win a key fighter competition.
The US firm and Tata have signed an agreement for the potential work, says Lockheed.
“Producing F-16 wings in India will strengthen Lockheed Martin’s strategic partnership with Tata and support ‘Make in India,’” says the company, referring to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s initiative to build indigenous production capabilities.

Con l'FGFA agonizzante perché il Su-50 non è abbastanza stealth, ha i motori “spompati” e non da sufficienti offset tecnologici, questi si mettono a fare "da soli" un Advanced (sic!) Medium Combat Aircraft [quasi] stealth e coi motori off the shelf …

La telenovela si arricchirà di nuovi "esaltanti" episodi...

In trent’anni non son riusciti a far volare decentemente il Tejas e gli aerei della flotta cascano a terra perché gli standard costruttivi e manutentivi qualitativamente fanno pena.

Non credo siano nella posizione di criticare e far gli stealth meglio degli altri, comunque buona fortuna.

India & Francia ... ovvero ... la banda degli 'onesti' ...

Quote

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi faced calls for his resignation over allegations of corruption in a military jet deal with France after former French president Francois Hollande was quoted as saying New Delhi had influenced the choice of a local partner.
Indian political parties have been gunning for Modi over the 2016 purchase of 36 Rafale planes from Dassault Aviation estimated to be worth $8.7 billion, saying he had overpaid for the planes and had not been transparent.
In recent months, the opposition has questioned the government on the choice of billionaire Indian businessman Anil Ambani’s Reliance Defence as Dassault’s local partner instead of a state-run manufacturer with decades of experience.

The chief of the Indian air force has defended the Narendra Modi government’s decision to obtain 36 Dassault Rafale fighters off the shelf, after terminating the long-running Medium Multi-Role Combat Aircraft (MMRCA) deal.
Air Chief Marshall BS Dhanoa describes the 2016 decision to obtain the 36 aircraft as an “emergency buy” to shore up India’s falling number of fighter squadrons. 
The nation has 33 combat squadrons against an authorised strength of 42.5

Se sono sotto di ben 10 squadroni rispetto all'organico previsto ... quanti altri pensano di equipaggiarne con soli 36 velivoli ?

Un paio, credo, non di più ...

Boh ... contenti loro ... :P
