NHI NH-90 - discussione ufficiale

Recommended Posts

Australia ... dopo tanti problemi ... uno spiraglio di luce ...

 

Ten yers after taking delivery of its first NH Industries (NHI) NH-90 helicopters, the Australian Army is finally preparing to use them in the most demanding role.
Because of poor performance issues, the army unit that supports operations by the country’s special forces was obliged to retain its Sikorsky S-70 Black Hawks.
But now the 6th Aviation Regiment is planning to introduce the type - which is designated and named the MRH-90 Taipan in Australia - in 2019.
The Army is enjoying increased flying hours and reduced maintenance hours on the type in 2017.

Il radar difettoso mette a terra i 'Caïman' belgi ... ma il problema sembra interessare anche gli esemplari di altri paesi ...

Les nouveaux hélicoptères NH-90 de la Défense belge seront tous les quatre cloués au sol dès la semaine prochaine.
Les Caïman doivent prendre la relève des anciens Sea King en 2019, notamment pour les opérations de sauvetage en mer.
Mais les appareils pourraient rester indisponibles pendant un an et demi en raison d'un radar défectueux.
« Déjà à la livraison, il y avait quelque chose qui ne tournait pas rond », a indiqué le commandant de la Composante Air de l’Armée belge, le général Frederik Vansina.

Il Qatar conferma un vecchio ordine e lo amplia ...

Qatar has finally firmed a long-held tentative deal for NH Industries (NHI) NH90 helicopters, to be split between the naval and troop transport variants.
The revised order sees the Gulf state increase its commitment to 28 helicopters, up from the 22 it initially signed for in 2014.

Anche Defense News lo tratta ... e sembra che, per i Francesi, sia stato tutto merito loro ...

Tutto? Direi che ci tengono a dire che hanno avuto un ruolo attivo.
Ognuno ha fatto una parte...tirando acqua al suo mulino come la tira ora.
I francesi ce li vedo a cercare di vendere NH-90 e anche a far in modo che quanti più possibile siano TTH fabbricati in Francia.

 

 

La contesa con i francesi
Secondo qualificate fonti industriali, il ruolo di “prime contractor” nella commessa è stato conteso dai partner - ma anche rivali - francesi, fino allo scorso dicembre. Poi l'azione più incisiva di Profumo e della sua squadra ha spostato l'equilibrio a favore del gruppo italiano. Da fine 2017 a oggi Profumo è stato tre volte in Qatar. La divisione elicotteri del gruppo da ottobre 2017 è guidata da Gian Piero Cutillo, mentre la responsabilità dell'area commerciale da marzo 2017 è affidata a Carlo Gualdaroni. L'ex responsabile della divisione, Daniele Romiti, è stato destinato da Profumo a “Progetti speciali”, ma ha lasciato il gruppo da poche settimane.

L'acquisto di altri 23 NH90 da trasporto approvato dal governo spagnolo ...

Il relativo contratto è stato appena firmato ...

Quote

Spain has signed a contract worth up to €1.38 billion ($1.57 billion) with Airbus Helicopters España - part of the NHIndustries consortium - to supply additional NH90 helicopters to the Ministry of Defense, doubling the number of the type that will be operated by the country’s armed forces. 
The contract, awarded by the MoD’s Directorate General of Armaments and Material (DGAM), was announced on January 2 and follows the Spanish Council of Ministers’ decision to approve the purchase in November 2018.
“The object of the authorized contract is the acquisition of 23 NH90 GSPA/MSPT helicopters destined for the helicopter fleet of the Ministry of Defense, which will be operated by the Army, the Air Force, and the Navy,” a statement from the Council of Ministers said.

Per sostituire i vecchi Westland Sea Lynx 88A ... la Germania sceglie una versione dello NH90 prossima a quella francese "Caiman" ...

Quote

Germany has selected the NH Industries NH90 as the replacement for its navy's 21-strong fleet of Westland Sea Lynx 88A anti-submarine warfare (ASW) helicopters.
Due to be delivered from 2025, Berlin will take a version of the NFH model, which is closest to the "Caiman" ASW variant operated by France, the country's defence ministry says.

Vanificate, quindi, le aspettative di Leonardo ...

Quote

Although Leonardo will receive some revenue from the latest acquisition, Berlin's decision is a blow for the manufacturer's Yeovil, UK site that builds the AW159 Wildcat, which was seen by the company as a natural successor to the Sea Lynx. 
The airframer has no current orders for the type.

NH-90 NFH ... la Norvegia si affida a Nova Systems ...

Quote

Norway is making progress with the introduction of the NH Industries NH90 NFH maritime helicopter for anti-submarine warfare (ASW) missions, having taken delivery of the first aircraft in August last year.
Although the Royal Norwegian Air Force previously operated the Westland Lynx from its navy’s frigate fleet, these were not deployed in an ASW capacity.
Lacking experience in such operations, especially use of a dipping sonar, the air force has had to turn to Australia-headquartered Nova Systems (*) to help it deliver the new capability, including the development of tactics, training and processes, says Simon Sparkes, chief operating officer of the company’s Norwegian arm.
Nova began working on the €15 million ($16.6 million) contract last month and is providing a team of operators, engineers and software specialists; Sparkes himself is a former UK Royal Navy pilot with 30 years of experience on the Leonardo Helicopters AW101 Merlin and Westland Sea King.
