Le intenzioni degli Emirati Arabi Uniti e lo scetticismo dell' USAF .....
The United States may be in talks with the United Arab Emirates over a potential Lockheed Martin F-35 sale, but the US Air Force’s head of Central Command doubts the UAE would be able to operate the Joint Strike Fighter alongside a fifth-generation Russian fighter.
During a round table with reporters ahead of the Dubai Air Show, USAF officials confirmed that discussions between the US and UAE were ongoing over a possible F-35 sale.
But the UAE’s loyalties appear split, after Abu Dhabi signed a memorandum of understanding with Russia in February to develop a fifth-generation fighter jet.
While the USAF’s vice chief of staff declined to comment on whether that move could hinder an F-35 acquisition, his counterpart from Central Command said operating a mixed fleet of Russian and US stealth aircraft would prove challenging.

Scetticismo fondato o ..... timore di vedere un proficuo orticello coltivato anche da altri ?

F-35 ..... c'è chi pone qualche domanda al Governo della Danimarca .....
Denmark’s national audit agency, the Rigsrevisionen, has raised a series of optimization and efficiency questions regarding the government’s basis for deciding to select the F-35A Lightning II as the Royal Danish Air Force’s next-generation fighter.
The Danish government reached a decision in June 2016 to acquire 27 F-35A aircraft at a cost of $3.1 billion.
The F-35As will replace the Air Forces’ F-16s.
Denmark acquired 44 F-16AM and F-16BM fighters from General Dynamics in the 1980s.
The number of actual operational aircraft is about 29.
The Rigsrevisionen operates as the Danish Parliament’s independent watchdog on major capital spending programs.
The agency wants the government to explain how the Ministry of Defence’s final assessment accounted for risks associated with key assumptions in the decision; this includes the inherent risk that the Danish armed forces might be unable to deliver all the tasks required with the 27 F-35 combat aircraft ordered from Lockheed Martin.

Bulgaria will request an offer from Boeing for its F/A-18 Super Hornet aircraft as the country aims to select a new fighter jet by the end of July 2018, according to the country’s defense minister.
Krasimir Karakachanov told state-run radio broadcaster BNR that the Ministry of Defence is seeking the offer in addition to the three main competitors for the deal — Lockheed Martin’s F-16, Saab’s JAS 39 Gripen and the Eurofighter Typhoon.
He said requests for proposals are expected to be sent to manufacturers this month.

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.

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.

F-35 ..... la Luftwaffe lo vorrebbe ..... il Ministero della Difesa ..... non proprio ..... :boxing:
German Defence Ministry leaders have distanced themselves from their Air Force chief, Lt. Gen. Karl Muellner, over his appetite for the F-35, as at least one lawmaker suspects intrigue seeping into the debate.
Deputy Defence Minister Ralf Brauksiepe clarified Monday that the government views the Eurofighter as the “primary” option for replacing the country’s fleet of Tornado jets in 2025.
The U.S.-made F-15E, the F/A-18E/F and the F-35 are considered only as “secondary” choices, he wrote in a letter.
The missive, first reported by Reuters on Monday and independently obtained by Defense News, comes after Muellner said last month he prefers the stealthy F-35 because of its advertised capability to attack targets from so far away that pilots can stay out of the danger of combat.

Il Qatar ha fatto acquisti massicci ..... ma ora si prospetta 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.”

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.”

Bahrain is set to become the first country in the region to operate Lockheed’s F-16 Block 70 aircraft, in a move that will boost the Falcon’s production line.
Last November, Vice President Mike Pence announced the signature of a deal for the sale of 16 F-16s worth over $2.3 billion to the Gulf country, considering it a “big boost for American jobs and security.”
“We are pleased the Kingdom of Bahrain and the U.S. government have agreed to move forward with the sale of F-16 Block 70 aircraft for the Royal Bahraini Air Force,” said Rick Groesch, regional vice president of international business development at Lockheed Martin Aeronautics.
Fonte: defensenews.com ..... "Lockheed keeps F-16 production line going with Bahrain deal" .....

La stipula di questo contratto pone dunque fine alla prospettata possibilità dell' adozione dell' Eurofighter Typhoon da parte del paese arabo .....
However, with this deal, one Bahraini military official confirmed the country’s withdrawal from the Eurofighter Typhoon program.
The European fighter was one of the main alternatives competing to join Bahrain’s air force, according to him.
“The decision is set and done. The Royal Bahraini Air Force won’t be operating the Typhoon anytime soon,” he said.
“With a total of 16 brand new advanced F-16s and 20 upgraded Block 40 F-16 aircraft to the V configuration, the air force lost its need to operate a new kind of aircraft.”

..... Boeing sfoglia la margherita .....
“We continue to believe that the Super Hornet is the low-risk, low-cost approach that has all the advanced capabilities the Royal Canadian Air Force needs now and well into the future,” Boeing says.
“We will evaluate our participation in Canada’s Future Fighter Capability Project (FFCP) after the Government of Canada outlines the FFCP procurement approach, requirements and evaluation criteria,” Boeing adds.

Singapore ..... il capo della RSAF (Republic of Singapore Air Force), intervistato da FlightGlobal si è dimostrato molto prudente circa l' eventuale futuro acquisto di F-35 da parte del suo paese .....
FlightGlobal: What is the RSAF’s current thinking on the Lockheed Martin F-35?
Singapore has expressed interest before, but this seems to have gone quiet over the last two years.

Tan: As a small country with no strategic depth, Singapore will always need superior air capabilities to protect its interests and borders.
Hence, we have been taking a long-term perspective in our planning to ensure that we will always have a capable fighter fleet to defend Singapore’s skies.
The RSAF’s F-5s have been drawn down after reaching the end of their operational lifespan and the F-16s have several key components that are facing obsolescence.
After careful studies, we have concluded that the most cost-effective approach will be to upgrade the F-16s to extend its lifespan, while evaluating the F-35 as a potential candidate to strengthen our fighter force and maintain our combat edge into the future.
MINDEF is still evaluating the F-35 JSF.
Decisions to acquire new and advanced capabilities are important and will be made after careful and thorough evaluation.
We have to ensure that our investment not only meets our defence requirements, but is also cost-effective.

Belgio ..... Dassault rafforza la sua posizione .....
Plutôt discret jusqu’ici, Dassault a frappé fort ce 13 février à Bruxelles, dans le marché qui l’oppose à Lockheed et Eurofighter pour le remplacement des F-16 belges par 34 appareils de nouvelle génération.
Devant la presse et dans le cadre du très select cercle néerlandophone De Warande, Éric Trappier, Président-Directeur général de Dassault Aviation, a signé pour le GIE Rafale International, 13 accords de coopération avec des industriels belges dans le cadre de la proposition de partenariat stratégique franco-belge relatif à l'aviation de combat.
----- ----- ----- ----- -----
Au cours de la cérémonie de signature qui a réuni les dirigeants de plus d'une douzaine d'entreprises, dont Sabca, Safran Aero Booster, Thales Belgium, Asco, Esterline, Flying Group, DronePort, ie-net, JDC Innovation, AKKA Belgium, Amia Systems, Ilias et Alt-F1, Éric Trappier a expliqué que ces accords seraient suivis de plusieurs dizaines d'autres accords similaires, de manière à atteindre les objectifs que les industriels de l'aéronautique français se sont fixés pour les retours industriels et sociétaux de l'offre faite à la Belgique dans le cadre du remplacement de ses avions de combat F 16.

F-35B ..... ultime dal Giappone .....
Japan is considering procuring the short take-off and vertical-landing (STOVL) variant of the Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) to improve the defence capabilities of its remote islands, according to a 12 February report by The Yomiuri Shimbun newspaper (*).
The Japan Air Self-Defense Force (JASDF) is mulling operating the F-35B from about fiscal year 2026 (FY 2026) from commercial airports located on these islands, said the media report, adding that the government in Tokyo is planning to indicate the number of aircraft to be procured in the next Medium Term Defense Programme, which is to be compiled at the end of 2018.

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 .....

..... https://www.reuters.com/article/us-japa ... SKCN1G507W .....

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 .....

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.
