Il mercato dei caccia ....

Recommended Posts

Si non ho messo nella lista l'F35 per il costo alla fine non credo che se il budget e ancora attorno ai 2-3 miliardi di euro se ne possano permettere proprio di prenderne una 20ina che mi sembra il requisito minimo per sostituire tutti gli F/A18 (non parlo poi dei vecchi F5) e non credo che si possa aprire una nuova linea di produzione in Svizzera e per pochi aeromobili

Più plausibile per me che si vada di nuovo coi gripen E che sono buoni aerei e con costi di gestione non elevati (anche se pare vengano a costare sui 100 milioni di dollari al pezzo se ricordo bene per cui non sono proprio economici)

Oppure non so qualche ipotesi più particolare se puntano ad un mix fra nuovo e usato l'eurofighter e interessante visto che fra Italia, Austria, Germania, UK e Spagna di sicuro qualcuno da reperire alla svolta lo trova

Altre ipotesi "esotiche" tipo F15, mig-35 o caccia indiani/pachistani/cinesi mi sento di escluderle

Le notizie dal Giappone si rincorrono ...


Ora, secondo alcune fonti, il paese asiatico intenderebbe acquistare un' ulteriore aliquota di F-35A ... questa volta però direttamente dagli Stati Uniti ...




Certo che ... spendere una valanga di quattrini per realizzare in casa propria una FACO e andare poi a comprare gli aerei negli USA, sia pure ad un prezzo inferiore, non può non lasciare perplessi ...

Pensavo volesse i B , per farli decollare dalle isole vicino alla Cina, con piste troppo corte.

Gli A se li può costruire a casa sua.

Canada ... Boeing rientra nella competizione ...

The Canadian government has announced that five bidders — Boeing, Dassault, Eurofighter, Lockheed Martin and Saab — are eligible to compete for a long sought-after contract to replace the country’s 88 CF-18 fighters.
The disclosure of the Future Fighter Capabilities Project (FFCP)’s official Supplier’s List (*) ends a mystery about whether Boeing would decline to participate after angering Canadian government officials.

Udite... udite ...

 

https://www.defensenews.com/naval/2018/02/20/belgium-wants-to-buy-rafale-fighters-for-naval-capability-says-french-lawmaker/

 

Ammesso che tutto ciò risponda al vero e, alla fine, si concretizzi ... mi sto chiedendo se la CdG non sia una portaerei troppo piccola per poter ospitare anche un contingente di volo non francese ...

 

Più che altro è troppo piccola per ospitare simili...corbellerie.

D'accordo che le spese militari in Europa sono tornate a crescere, ma se dei governanti belgi comprassero dei costosissimi caccia navali per imbarcarli (quando, come e perché?!!) su una portaerei Francese, verrebbero semplicemente messi alla berlina.

Certo, l'EF-2000 e l'F-35A non possono essere imbarcati, ma evidenziare punti a favore tanto ipotetici quanto totalmente inutili di una proposta concorrente, lascia il tempo che trova.

Anche qui, credo si tratti nulla più di un'ipotesi.

Quando i Giapponesi hanno deciso di realizzare la loro FACO lo hanno fatto col preciso scopo di portare lavoro all’industria nazionale e acquisire know how, ben sapendo che il costo dell’operazione sarebbe stato elevato, sia per le spese non ricorrenti della realizzazione di uno stabilimento da zero, che per le spese ricorrenti della lavorazione in Giappone.

Probabile ci siano lotti successivi, viste le necessità di riequipaggiamento, ma credo saranno realizzati sempre allo stesso modo, in particolare se i nuovi lotti si inseriranno come immediato seguito dei precedenti, in modo da avere un minimo di efficienza produttiva.

F-35 ... a Taiwan interessa da tempo, ma ... saranno gli USA disposti a concederlo ?

Taiwan has flagged continued interest in the Lockheed Martin F-35 fighter jet, possibly as part of an upcoming new round of arms purchases from the United States.
Speaking to parliament, Defense Minister Yen Teh-fa confirmed Taiwan’s long-standing interest in the F-35, although he did not mention which variant of the F-35 or how many aircraft Taiwan was interested in acquiring.
However, previous reports have said Taiwan is interested in the F-35B short-takeoff-and-vertical-landing, or STOVL, version, which is also used by the U.S Marine Corps, Italy and the United Kingdom.
Japan and Singapore are also reportedly interested in this variant.

La Russia teme lo scavalcamento da parte della Cina ...

The recent release of the latest Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) report on the worldwide trade in weapon systems has observers in Moscow asking unhappy questions.
Their chief concern is that gains made in 2012-2017 by the People’s Republic of China (PRC) in different regions are ultimately at the expense of sales that might otherwise have been made by Russian suppliers.
The issue was addressed in the last week of March by the editors of the Russian-language Nezavisimoye Voyennoe Obozreniye (NVO), one of the nation’s most authoritative defense periodicals.
The PRC’s previous market share has been small, the editors write, and the nation has been more along the lines of a large-scale importer of weapons - particularly those from Russian manufacturers.
What has become the cause for worry, says the publication, is that “in a short historical period of time, Beijing has made a sharp turn upwards and has broken into the ranks of the top five leading exporters - turning the process of military-technical cooperation with foreign nations into an effective instrument of political and economic influence.”

I soliti attori per la telenov... ehmm no, volevo dire per la RFP canadese per 88 nuovi caccia, possono presentare il curriculum...ehmm no, volevo dire le proposte.

n a notice posted online 26 October, Ottawa listed five suppliers eligible to replace its fighter fleet with 88 advanced jets: Dassault Aviation, maker of the Rafale; Saab, maker of the JAS 39 Gripen; Airbus Defense, a major partner in the Eurofighter joint venture, which makes the Typhoon; Lockheed Martin, maker of the F-16 and F-35; and Boeing, maker of the F/A-18 Super Hornet and F-15E Strike Eagle. Only these five will be allowed to submit proposals.

La Turchia ha finalmente deciso ... il motore del futuro caccia TF-X sarà dunque americano ... 
Ma dovrebbe equipaggiare soltanto alcuni lotti del velivolo ... in attesa che venga realizzato un motore di progettazione nazionale ...

Quote

 

Turkey’s aerospace authorities have chosen General Electric’s F110 family of engines to power the prototype and an initial batch of what will become Turkey’s first indigenous fighter jet, the TF-X.
A senior procurement official confirmed the choice, saying that the twin-engine TF-X will be powered by the F110-GE-129 or the F110-GE-132 engine.
“This is a stopgap solution until we have built our indigenous engine for the TF-X,” the official said.
Under the deal, the first prototype of the TF-X and an unknown number of initial batches would be powered by the F110 engine.

La scelta del motore americano mi pare un po’ di basso profilo.

Se l’idea è di partire da un vecchio, ma grosso motore come l’F110 e di utilizzarne 2, è anche perché non mi pare Rolls Royce avesse nulla di disponibile in quella classe di spinta. L’EJ200 è un motore di classe inferiore e quindi qualcosa di comparabile all’F110 andava sviluppato con tempi e costi tutti da definire.

I turchi hanno già esperienza sull’F110: derivarne un motore (che non so quanto si discosterebbe dall’originale) forse è una scelta adatta al livello tecnologico di TRMotor e della Turchia che sta imboccando la strada della produzione indigena e una scelta adatta al garantirsi da eventuali veti, come sta succedendo per l’F-35 che adotta un motore più avanzato.

Canada ... la Francia si ritira dalla gara destinata a trovare un successore ai CF-18 attualmente in servizio ...

Quote

Dassault Aviation has withdrawn from Canada’s competition to buy 88 new fighter jets over concerns that interoperability and intelligence sharing requirements were too extensive, according to industry sources.
Dassault had been approved by the Canadian government for the competition and intended to offer the Royal Canadian Air Force the Rafale fighter jet.
A draft bid package for 88 fighter aircraft has been issued to companies for their feedback by the end of this year, said Pat Finn, assistant deputy minister for materiel at Canada’s Department of National Defence. 
From there, the final bidding instructions for the CAN$16 billion (U.S. $12.2 billion) procurement will be issued and bids required by May 2019, he added.
Dassault, however, reviewed the draft request for proposals and determined the Canadian requirements for intelligence data sharing and interoperability, particularly with U.S. forces, would be difficult to meet, sources noted.
