TF-X ... il futuro caccia turco ...
Il punto sulla situazione .....
La prossima mossa sarà la scelta di un partner estero che possa contribuire, con la propria tecnologia, alla realizzazione di un motore locale .....

Turkey’s defense procurement authorities have given pace to their work to select an engine know-how supplier that will be the backbone of the TF-X, an indigenous Turkish fighter jet in the making.
“We may not hold onto our original target of officially announcing a technology partner (for the engine) in January, but we will come very close to it,” said a senior procurement official familiar with the program.
At the end of October, Turkey’s top procurement official, Ismail Demir, said his office would announce its decision on the TF-X engine in January 2018.
An official from Turkish Aerospace Industries, the prime local contractor for the TF-X program, said talks with a number of potential technology suppliers and their local partners have recently matured enough to give decision-makers a clear picture.
“The idea is to rely on foreign technology in order to build, in the longer term, an indigenous engine that will power the TF-X,” the TAI official said.
“I think we are close to an understanding.”

Croazia ... Israele presenta la sua offerta ...

Israel's defence ministry is offering to supply Croatia with a mix of 12 second-hand Lockheed Martin F-16s, facing competition from Saab Gripens being promoted by Sweden.
Current Israeli air force F-16C/Ds are now being offered, with the service to retire some of its examples as more Lockheed F-35I Adirs enter use.
The Israeli proposal also could include a mix of C/D-model aircraft and already-retired F-16A/Bs which it has previously pitched to the Croatian government.

Dodici aerei in quattro versioni diverse ? Un bel minestrone. Quelli dei blocchi A e B dovrebbero comunque essere ricondizionati a causa dell'usura e ringiovaniti nell'avionica.

L'offerta sarebbe più furba se venissero offerti solo i C / D.

 

Se l'offerta è posta nel modo indicato da flightglobal, è meglio standardizzare sul Gripen.

Eurofighter Typhoon ... dopo l' ordine del Qatar ... cosa c'è dietro l'angolo?

Thanks to the Qatar order, BAE Systems has stretched out Typhoon production for the partner nations and this buys time for a potential Saudi deal.
Despite an upbeat message from Eurofighter on prospects closer to home in Belgium (the nuclear role is likely to play a part again here) and Finland, further business with Saudi Arabia would appear to represent the main potential for significant Typhoon sales in the future.
Despite a requirement to replace its Tornado IDS, this is unlikely to materialize for several years to come.
However, thanks to the UK’s Project Centurion that adds MBDA’s Storm Shadow, Meteor and the Brimstone anti-armor missile, it positions Typhoon ideally for this - mirroring plans in the UK with Typhoon ultimately replacing the Tornado GR4 in 2019.

The Canadian government is poised to walk away from a deal with Boeing to buy 18 F/A-18E/F Super Hornet jets, a major blow for the future of the Boeing jet.
Canada’s Liberal government will announce next week plans to proceed with an interim buy of used F/A-18 Hornets from Australia, dashing Boeing’s hopes of a Super Hornet sale, three sources familiar with the situation told Reuters, according to a Dec. 5 report.

Il Qatar ha in corso acquisti massicci di velivoli da combattimento ... ma ora dovrà affrontare un grosso problema di organico ...

Qatar’s launch of a huge air power buildup has raised a series of questions about the country’s ability to incorporate systems into its military amid a crisis faced with the Gulf nations.
On Sunday, Britain signed a deal with the small Gulf country to supply 24 Typhoon fighters after two consecutive agreements with the U.S. to purchase 36 Boeing F-15QA and France to receive 12 additional Dassault Rafale fighters.
One industrial source with knowledge of the matter stressed expanded capabilities provided by the three new jets, noting that “the air force will now have a total of 96 new aircraft, compared to its current Mirage-2000 fleet of a dozen.”
“The problem faced here is the lack of Qatari armed forces personnel to operate three top-line fighter types,” he added.
“In order to compensate for staffing shortage, Qatar will inevitably have to recruit foreign forces.”

Qatar ... arriveranno anche gli F-15QA ...

Qatar’s air force will receive 36 Boeing F-15QA fighters under a $6.17 billion deal announced by the US Department of Defense on 22 December.
The contract requires all deliveries before 2023, the DOD’s announcement says (*).

FMS funds in the amount of $3,019,750,000 are being obligated at the time of award.
Air Force Life Cycle Management Center, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, is the contracting activity (FA8634-18-C-2701).

Quatar : un paese grande quanto uno sputo di cammello, più piccolo del Veneto e con una popolazione ( servi della gleba inclusi ? ) che è la metà di quella dei polentoni ( irregolari esclusi ) ; la sua forza aerea possiede i C-17 ed è basata su quattro tipi di aerei di prima linea ( compresi quelli in ordine ) , tre se regala i pochi Mirage al Canada.

E' vero che si son arricchiti con il petrolio, ma vi sembra " smart procurement " una politica del genere ? Dove diamine le mette le officine per fare la manutenzione di modelli così diversi ?

Meglio non pensarci e godersi i soldini che arrivano dalla vendita dei Typhoon .

A proposito dei recenti, massicci acquisti di aerei da caccia da parte di paesi del Medio Oriente ...

Following the confirmation last month by BAE Systems that Qatar had signed an order for 24 Eurofighter Typhoons, the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) revealed details of a training package.
Meanwhile, Eurofighter reported that final production of the 28 aircraft ordered by Kuwait in 2016 is underway, and that they would be “the most advanced variant of the fighter jet ever made.”
The Qatar contract extends the final production line at BAE’s Warton facility, which was running down, into the 2020s.
BAE said that the contract is worth approximately £5 billion ($6.8 billion) and is still “subject to financing conditions,” with the first payment expected in mid-2018.
But the MoD gave a value of “around £6 billion” for what it described as “the biggest export deal for the Typhoon project in a decade.”

The payment will also cover support equipment and spares.
This makes Nigeria the first buyer of the type to be officially named, although programme officials have long said there is strong interest for the type in the developing world.

Hanno 9 vecchi F7 cinesi in non si sa quali condizioni

3 JF-17 dovrebbero poterli sostituire

Tanto comunque li vicino non ci sono aeronautiche pericolose x dire il Ciad credo sia quello messo meglio con 3 MIG 29 e meno di una decina di SU-25 (+5 elicotteri da attacco)
