F-15X ... alcuni senatori repubblicani scrivono al Presidente ...

Quote

Five Republican senators urged President Trump in a Feb. 14 letter (*) not to buy a new variant of Boeing's F-15 at the expense of the F-35.
--- --- ---
Sens. John Cornyn and Ted Cruz of Texas, Marco Rubio of Florida, Susan Collins of Maine, and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska cosigned the letter, which argues the Air Force needs to buy 60 F-35As in Fiscal 2020 to reach a rate of 80 jets required to succeed in the 2025 threat environment.

Lotta di lobbies e rivalità politiche.

Se colui che ha consigliato gli F-15X viene dalla scuderia Boeing , due dei tizi sopra citati ( Cruz e Rubio ) furono avversari di Trump , da lui poi bastonati, nel periodo delle nomination per i repubblicani.

Decisamente va di moda mettere AMRAAM ad cazzium sugli aerei.

Attacchi tripli, 10 missili aria aria, serbatoi sganciabili e conformal, pod, carenatura tra abitacolo e deriva, bozzi ovunque.

Whitcomb si rivolterebbe nella tomba...

" 21 " intenderà 21° secolo , suppongo.

Resta da vedere come un aereo con una traccia presumibilmente radar molto intensa , data la forma , potrà evitare il lancio di un Meteor , di un AMRAAM di ultima generazione , o di un similare russo. Era meglio proporre l'aereo come bombardiere , sul genere del Sufa israeliano.

Il mio WOW era dovuto al fatto che si propone alla Finlandia  un sofisticato e dedicato sistema di guerra elettronica , oltre alla probabile offerta del Super Hornet.

Guardando la cosa dal punto di vista della stealthness, l'F-21 resta un caccia multiruolo e quindi anche in configurazione aria-suolo sarebbe comunque penalizzato dalla traccia radar nelle missioni di penetrazione, il che non è proprio il massimo.

Pensando a quanto gli Indiani abbiano criticato aspramente il Su-57 perché non abbastanza stealth, fa un po' sorridere che prendano in considerazione un F-16 cosi taroccato.

Vabbuó, qui vogliono far numero...e porre una toppa ai ripetuti fallimenti nei programmi di riequipaggiamento, ma a me pare dimostrino solo un tale livello di confusione di idee che trova difficile paragone altrove nel mondo.

Certo che come caccia in tale beast mode (più  che altro una bestialità...) avrebbe anche prestazioni dinamiche di dubbia qualità (e anche qui penso alle critiche indiane alle prestazioni del Su-57...).

Così agghindato è più credibile l'F-15X, che almeno ha prestazioni e radar per potersi permettere di fare lo "sborone"coi missili.

Ma in fondo è solo un video promozionale...

India ... ora tocca a Boeing presentare la sua proposta ...

Quote

Boeing has promoted its industrial capabilities in India, as it eyes potential deals to sell the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet to the nation's air force and navy.
Speaking at the Aero India show near Bengaluru on 21 February, company officials said it would build a “factory of the future” in India to produce the Super Hornet. 
New Delhi has two separate requirements for combat aircraft: 110 for the air force and 57 for the navy.
Boeing also announced that it has held discussions with partners Hindustan Aeronautics and Mahindra Defence Systems at the show.
“The partners are developing comprehensive plans to set up a new 'factory of the future' to manufacture Super Hornet locally,” says Boeing. 
“The programme is expected to work with several Indian suppliers to grow a thriving defence aerospace base, which could accelerate other programmes. The facility will create a world-class, highly-trained aerospace workforce.”

Il mondo troppo spesso dimentica che un missile arriva anche ad avere una RCS di mezzo metro. Quando ne metti “millemila” (cit) ti ritrovi che hai un b-52 per le mani, senza contare che se metti anche fuel tanks aumenta la rcs e si perde in capacità di manovra .... vabbè c’è il comodo comando che ti consente di buttarli.

Quale nuovo caccia per la Malaysia ... con gli scarsi fondi di cui dispone ?

Quote

Pakistan hopes to sell its JF-17 Thunder aircraft to Malaysia, now that the cash-strapped country is officially looking for such a fighter.
Malaysia was eyeing larger fighters like the Rafale and Typhoon, but that plan was shelved due to budgetary woes, and the country instead turned to fulfill a light combat aircraft requirement. 
An LCA fleet would support Malaysia’s F/A-18 and Su-30 fighters.
The JF-17 is under consideration alongside the Tejas, produced by India’s Hindustan Aeronautics Limited, and the FA-50 Golden Eagle, made by South Korea’s Korea Aerospace Industries. 
Pakistan’s offering is the most affordable of the three.

I futuri caccia di Taiwan ... fra politica e minacce ...

Quote

The leadership of Taiwan has recently stepped up efforts to obtain a new American fighter aircraft to urgently recapitalise its aging air force.
Media reports indicate that president Tsai Ing-wen has publically confirmed that a request for new fighter aircraft has been made to Washington.
This follows a television interview in which the deputy defence minister said that a request had been sent to the USA, asking it to provide Taipei information on the number and type of fighters it could obtain.
A 7 March press release from the US-Taiwan Business Council, an agency that fosters trade and business relations between the USA and Taiwan, suggests that Taiwan may have a preference for the Lockheed Martin F-16V.
“The US-Taiwan Business Council has long supported the sale of additional F-16s to Taiwan,” it says.

Futuri caccia canadesi ... Saab presenta la sua proposta ...

Quote

Saab is ready to sell the Canadian government 88 Canada-built Gripen fighters should Ottawa require home-built aircraft.
The Swedish combat aircraft manufacturer cautions nothing is finalised and its offer will ultimately reflect Canada’s formal request for proposal (RFP). 
The company expects the final RFP to be issued around midyear by the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF).
“As we have demonstrated in Brazil, and depending on the requirements of a customer, we can build fighter jets in countries other than Sweden,” says the company. 
“Gripen is the world’s most-modern multi-role aircraft and a perfect match to Canada’s operational requirements for NORAD defense and expeditionary missions. It is proven to operate in any climate, from arctic to desert.”

Allora, ricapitolando…

A novembre si diceva che il motore del TF-X sarebbe stato fatto con GE (partendo dal grosso F-110) che aveva battuto Rolls Royce...

https://www.portaledifesa.it/index~phppag,3_id,2643.html

...A Marzo Rolls Royce scaricava i turchi.

Quote

Rolls-Royce has scaled back efforts to join a Turkish programme to build a new fighter jet, striking a blow to UK ambitions to put the British aerospace industry at the heart of the project.

https://www.ft.com/content/164c5ee0-3d1d-11e9-8c2f-30761f19a974

A giugno questi scrivono che il motore lo ricavano dall’EJ-200 (che praticamente è la metà di un F-110, ma vabbè…).

Quote

Turkey's Kale group launched a joint venture with UK's Rolls-Royce to develop and manufacture engines for fighter jet TF-X that is being developed locally. The engine is supposed to be modification of the EJ-200 engine which powers the Eurofighter 2000.

Però, visto che la palla rimbalza dal campo Rolls Royce a quello GE e da qui di nuovo a quello Rolls Royce, non sia mai che si faccia un fori campo e si vada dai russi.

Quote

However, if Turkey’s relations with the US worsen over the S-400 issue, then it will have a bearing on its cooperation with Western European suppliers such as Rolls Royce.

In that case it may look at Russia as a possible engine source.

Russia’s Rostec has expressed interest to supply an engine for the TF-X which in all probability could be the Izdelie 30, the ‘second stage’ engine for its own Su-57. The engine, whose first flight test happened in end-2018, can fly in super-cruise mode.

Dev’essere di un divertente fare l’ingegnare aeronautico in certi paesi…

Secondo me il capo progetto del TF-X è Tafazi…

The worldwide fighter market could grow by 17.2% over the next decade, representing a total output of 3,401 aircraft.

The Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II will be the largest fighter programme over the next decade, due primarily to its selection as the tactical fighter of choice for the US Air Force, US Navy, and US Marine Corps. 
Lockheed Martin is expected to deliver 1,548 examples of F-35 – some 46% percent of the market.
