Per Finlandia e Danimarca si avvicina il momento delle decisioni .....
The final selection process for Finland's and Denmark's fighter replacement programs will be managed by two newly installed governments.
Finland's center-right government took office on May 29 and is expected to provisionally examine aircraft replacement options by the end of June, while assessing the pros and cons of candidate aircraft based on expert reports in August and September.
Denmark is heading into fresh parliamentary elections on June 18 — the same day the Ministry of Defense plans to hold a special fighter aircraft project assessment meeting to evaluate the three short-listed aircraft and guide the selection process.

"La parola d'ordine è una sola, categorica e imperativa per tutti.
Essa già trasvola e accende i cuori dal Pacifico all'Atlantico: SPINGERE!
E SPINGEREMO!
"
The US Air Force’s top acquisition executive says the service wants to do more to support the sale of American-made aircraft and parts abroad, and one proposal gaining momentum is to complete airworthiness certification even before foreign military sales (FMS) cases emerge.
William LaPlante, air force assistant secretary for acquisition, says that normally the military airworthiness certification process starts at the point of sale, but several domestic manufacturers have expressed interest it certifying their products by the air force sooner to make those items more attractive on the international market.

Analysts are generally skeptical at present of reports Pakistan and Russia are engaged in negotiations for the delivery of a number of Su-35 Flanker E fighter aircraft, though there is a potential requirement for such a heavy fighter.
The reports, first published in Russian media (*), cited Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov as saying both sides were negotiating for the delivery of an unspecified number of Su-35 jets alongside the Mi-35M "Hind E" helicopter gunships that have recently been agreed upon.

Non pianger più ..... Argentina ..... :)
Argentina is expected to sign a contract on 10 November covering the purchase of 14 Kfir Block 60 fighters.
The nation's air force opted to acquire upgraded examples of the Israel Aerospace Industries-produced combat aircraft, which have been non-operational for two decades.
IAI had been offering a Block 60 version of the roughly 40-year-old Kfir design, powered by a GE Aviation J79 engine.
The company says the powerplant will be supplied in a "zero-hour" condition after a complete overhaul, with replacement required after 1,600 flight hours.

It had been widely speculated Sri Lanka would sign a deal for the JF-17 to start replacing its current fleet of Chengdu F-7, IAI Kfir and MiG-27 aircraft.

Kuwait ..... a che gioco stanno giocando ?
The pressure from lawmakers could not come too soon for Kuwait’s Air Force, which is sticking to plans to purchase 28 Boeing F/A-18E/F fighter jets, a deal valued at around $3 billion.
US industry executives and military officials have reportedly grown concerned about delays.
"The lengthy US bureaucratic process is really not serving anyone’s interests,” said Abdullah al-Shayji of Kuwait University, also a lecturer at the Mubarak Al-Abdullah Joint Staff Command College.
“Kuwait is fighting in two wars, one in Yemen and another against ISIS. The State Department, Pentagon and the White House need to expedite these sales.”
Support for the F-18 remains strong in Kuwait, which is good news for Boeing.
"The Super Hornet is one of the best solutions for us," Abdullah al-Foudary, commander of the Kuwait Air Force, told Reuters Jan. 21.
"We have the legacy F-18s that we have to find a solution for in 2030-2040."
"A debate is ongoing on what sort of air power will Kuwait use,” al-Shayji said.
“This debate included the Eurofighter, Rafales and the F-18s, but the Air Force had clearly stated their preference for the F-18s and they at the end have the power in this matter."
The Air Force prefers the F-18 because adding in either Eurofighter or Rafale will “require the conversion of the systems used and will be more costly and time-consuming at a time when the oil prices are collapsing and may cause problems in the future if this deal is further delayed,” he added.

Mais la nouvelle est accompagnée d’une seconde, qui annonce la commande en parallèle de Boeing F/A-18 E/F «Super Hornet».

Kuwait ..... e vi pareva ?
A contract for 28 Eurofighter aircraft that was expected to be signed Sunday by Kuwait has been put off for “procedural” reasons, an Italian Ministry of Defence source said.
----- ----- ----- ----- -----
However, the signing did not take place, and a source in Rome said that it had been held up “by internal procedural problems” in Kuwait and did not say if a new date had been fixed.

Kuwait ..... perché non si è firmato .....
Italian defense firm Finmeccanica and Eurofighter have to present cost breakdowns to the Kuwaiti State Audit Bureau before they see a signature on a deal for 28 fighter jets secured.
Kuwaiti news portal kuwaitnews.com cited parliamentary sources stating that the deal has been refused by the Kuwaiti State Audit Bureau due to a lack of information on costs regarding technical support, training, spare parts and the construction of building structures.
