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.

richelieu ha scritto: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.

Polonia in vista .....
With some sources suggesting that Poland could launch its “Harpia” fighter tender within the next few weeks, Italian airframer Leonardo is stepping up its promotion of the Eurofighter Typhoon.
“We are offering Poland industrial co-operation, manufacturing packages and developmental programmes,” says Andrea Nappi, Leonardo’s vice-president, Eurofighter export.
A selection by Warsaw would lead to the delivery of aircraft assembled at the company’s Caselle site near Turin, he says, although the customer could also choose to take Typhoons completed in Germany, Spain or the UK.

Lockheed Unveils First F-35A for South Korea .....

Lockheed Martin on Wednesday rolled out the first of 40 F-35As for the Republic of Korea Air Force.
The new jet solidifies the “special bond” between the US and South Korea, and will help deter aggression in a time where South Korea’s neighbor to the North is threatening stability on the Korean Peninsula, Lockheed CEO Marillyn Hewson said during the ceremony at the company’s Fort Worth, Texas, facility.
Four years ago, South Korea concluded its F-X III fighter acquisition program by signing a letter of acceptance with the US for the F-35A.
South Korea is expected to begin pilot training at Luke AFB, Ariz., this spring.
F-35As will begin to deliver to Chongju Air Base next year.
“The introduction of the F-35 will bring great changes to our air force’s existing concept of operations and will strengthen the status and the role of the Republic of Korea Air Force as the highest power defending Korea,” said Lt. Gen. Seong-Yong Lee, the vice chief of staff of the Republic of Korea Air Force.

E la Corea del Sud fa la sua mossa .....
A South Korean official on 28 March pressed the US Department of Defense to grant maintenance, repair, overhaul and upgrade contracts for the Lockheed Martin F-35A Lighting II to Korean companies during a speech at a roll-out ceremony in Fort Worth, Texas.
A day before a factory ceremony to formally receive South Korea's first F-35A, the chairman of South Korean's parliamentary defence committee, Kim Hack-yong, asked US undersecretary of defence for acquisition Ellen Lord to consider South Korea's aerospace industry for the MRO&U programme in northern Asia.
He mentioned the request during his speech at the delivery ceremony.

La Russia teme lo scavalcamento da parte della Cina ..... :eeeeek:
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.”

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

The Royal Canadian Air Force’s fleet of CF-18 fighter aircraft is unable to meet its commitments to the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) due to a lack of pilots and technicians, according to a report by the Office of the Auditor General of Canada (*).
The problem is exacerbated by Ottawa’s aging fleet of 76 CF-18 aircraft, which were purchased in the 1980s, are in some cases nearly 20 years past their original expected replacement date and have not received a significant combat upgrade since 2008.
What’s more, the Department of National Defence has no plan to upgrade the combat capability of the CF-18 fleet even though the aircraft are expected to fly until 2032, the date by which the RCAF expects to have replaced its fleet with new fighters.

The first batch of six RAC (Russian Aircraft Corporation) "MiG" MiG-35 multi-role combat aircraft will soon be delivered to the VKS (Russian aerospace forces), according to Ilya Tarasenko, director general of RAC MiG, in an announcement made at the production plant at Lukhovitsky on November 28.
He also said that an active phased-array radar would be offered as an option and stated that a prototype equipped with such a radar had already been completed.
The contract for the production of this initial batch of six MiG-35s was signed during the 2018 Army Forum on August 22.
Delivery of these aircraft will allow completion of all planned tests in early 2019, after which serial production will begin at the Sokol Nizhnii Novgorod Aircraft Plant.
In 2013, Novosti reported that 37 MiG-35s would be purchased, but 170 aircraft are now planned for the Russian air forces.

Taiwan ..... i tanto agognati F-35 non arriveranno ..... pertanto .....
Taiwan is upgrading a fleet of American-made fighter jets, but may scrap ambitions to acquire the more advanced F-35 models, showing the limits of U.S.-Taiwan military cooperation despite a common interest of resisting China.
The Air Force should get its first four upgraded F-16 A/B fighter jets in early 2019.
The upgrades are part of a broader overhaul that began a year ago to convert the planes into the equivalent of higher-end F-16Vs, the government-funded Central News Agency said.
But the Taiwanese armed forces, ranked as the world’s 24th strongest, probably won’t get F-35 planes from the American developer Lockheed Martin despite expressions of interest in the past, defense analysts say.
Taiwan would then rely in any war with China, a military rival of some 70 years, on tactical advantages rather than trying to match its firepower.

Anche se non lo si può considerare un vero e proprio 'caccia' .....
Russia has supplied Laos with four Yakovlev Yak-130 advanced jet trainers constructed at the Irkut Corporation’s plant in Irkutsk under a controversial deal, of which full details have yet to emerge.
The aircraft arrived at the Vientiane air force station aboard Russian Il-76TD strategic airlifters in December 2018.
They were assembled and flown earlier this year ahead of the Lao People's Armed Forces (LPAF)’s parade devoted to the 70th anniversary of its foundation.
Following the withdrawal of MiG-21 fighters earlier this century, the LPAF air force has not operated any combat jets until the arrival of the Yak-130s.
According to the Moscow-based Kommersant newspaper (*), Laos is to receive 10 Yak-130s aircraft along with spares, air-launched munitions, ground equipment, and training in a package worth $300 million.
Official sources are yet to confirm that.

Il Canada non ha ancora deciso se acquistare gli F-35 ..... però continua a pagarne le spese di sviluppo .....
Canada is poised to contribute tens of millions of dollars toward further development of the F-35 stealth fighter even as the federal government wrestles with whether to buy the plane or not.
In an interview with The Canadian Press, the Department of National Defence’s head of military procurement says there are no plans for Canada to quit as one of nine partner countries in the F-35 stealth fighter program until after the Trudeau government completes the competition to determine which fighter jet will replace Canada’s aging fleet of CF-18s.
“We’re committed to staying there (in the program) until we understand where the competition will bring us,” said Patrick Finn, assistant deputy minister of material at National Defence.
The competition is expected to be launched this spring.

F-15X si ..... Light Attack aircraft no ..... almeno per ora .....
The Air Force will propose buying new F-15X aircraft in the fiscal 2020 budget, but won’t seek Light Attack aircraft yet, making those choices to accommodate the National Defense Strategy, the Air Force’s top uniformed acquisition official said Friday at an AFA breakfast on Capitol Hill.
Lt. Gen. Arnold Bunch said he would not reveal details of the budget, which has not yet been delivered to Congress, but he acknowledged these two items have been discussed widely in recent weeks—including by Chief of Staff Gen. David Goldfein - and he offered some explanations as to USAF’s thinking.
With regard to the Light Attack aircraft - the result of experiments USAF has been doing for nearly three years - Bunch said an actual requirement has now been established after having been “rammed through” the requirements process.
However, because the expected budget has “gone up and down,” with topline figures ranging from $700 billion to $750 billion, “this was not an area where we would go do a large procurement at this time,” Bunch observed, noting the service also took “priorities” stemming from the NDS into consideration when making this decision.
He also said the Light Attack program was always “additive” to the service’s budget, and that nothing else could be dropped in order to bring it on.
So for now, the service will focus on further experimentation.

F-15X ..... l' USAF li vorrebbe ..... ma c'è chi esprime dubbi sulla 'saggezza' di tale desiderio .....
Last Friday, the Air Force announced plans to buy Boeing’s F-15X, based on the jet’s capabilities and comparatively low costs when stacked against the F-35A.
Is this a wise investment?
Let’s take a look.
