Acho que os ingleses andam a meter os ovos todos no mesmo cesto (porta-aviões Queen Elizabeth + F-35).

Mas referente a meios do Exército, seria teoricamente uma oportunidade de equipar a UALE com battlefield Wildcats e Pumas modernizados.

On January 16th (tomorrow) the British Army will retire its last Westland Lynx helicopter. The type served the Army for 40 years, and proved its mettle as a battlefield utility, anti-armour, and SAR helicopter in conflicts across the globe.

British Army’s Lynx officially retired

18th January 2018 - 09:01 GMT | by The Shephard News Team 


The British Army has officially retired its Lynx helicopter fleet after almost 40 years in service, the army announced on 16 January.

Lynx entered into service in 1978 as a primary battlefield utility helicopter and has been utilised to destroy tanks, gather intelligence, medical evacuation and provide humanitarian support.

During its career, the helicopter supported British troops on active service in Bosnia, Kuwait, Afghanistan and Sierra Leone.

To mark the end of the aircraft’s decommisioning from the British Army fleet, the Army Air Corps will fly five of the last remaining Lynx airframes from RAF Odiham in Hampshire on a commemorative tour around England. The flight will culminate in a V5 air procession along the length of the River Thames over Central London.

Lynx is being replaced by the AW159 Wildcat in British service.

UK begins Gazelle helicopter replacement effort

 31 January, 2018 SOURCE: FlightGlobal.com BY: Dominic Perry London

 Initial work is under way to replace the British Army's active fleet of 22 elderly Aérospatiale Gazelle AH1 helicopters, as the venerable type nears retirement.

 "We do have plans to replace the Gazelle," says Air Cdre Al Smith, capability air manoeuvre at the UK's Joint Helicopter Command. "It hinges on operational outputs so the customer gets the same or better product," he adds, noting: "I think we can probably do better than we do today."

 Smith, speaking at the Defence IQ International Military Helicopter conference in London on 31 January, declined to reveal the platform under consideration, or the timeline for any acquisition. The latter is driven by the out-of-service date for the Gazelle, which could be accelerated from a current target of 2025 if the type becomes more costly to support due to a shortage of spare parts.


AirTeamImages

 Employed by the Army Air Corps in the reconnaissance and battlefield liaison role, the Gazelle also relies on a pool of what Smith describes as "really highly trained" flightcrew, who are used to operating as a single pilot in "quite challenging weather conditions".

 "How much longer do we want to rely [on those crews]… and at what point do we want technology to reduce that workload?" asks Smith.

 A replacement programme is unlikely to be a like-for-like acquisition: thanks to advances in technology, Smith believes that a similar or better capability could be provided with a smaller number of platforms.

 "Looking at the number of Gazelles, we think we can deliver a customer product with significantly fewer than we have today," he says.

 An acquisition process has also begun for the Royal Air Force's Boeing CH-47 Chinook fleet. This is "still in the assessment phase" says Smith, but stresses that the UK armed forces "need heavy lift".

 Any future purchase will be a "manned platform", he says, with the Ministry of Defence likely to wait until the arrival of the enhanced Block II version of the Chinook in 2023.

 While no decision has been taken on whether to acquire more Chinooks or another type, Smith notes: "There are not that many competitors out there."

 In addition, a part of any future Chinook purchase could include the MH-47G variant for special forces operations, Smith confirms.

 "If Block II were the answer… then the MH is an attractive option, because it offers some capabilities that some of the others don't," he notes.

British Army finally selects Boxer for MIV
31st March 2018 - 15:02 GMT | by Alice Budge, Grant Turnbull in London


RSS

In a move that has been anticipated for several months, the UK MoD announced on 31 March that it will re-join the Boxer programme and pursue a sole-source acquisition of the German 8x8 vehicle.

The long-awaited decision on the acquisition strategy for the Mechanised Infantry Vehicle (MIV) programme was announced just before the end of the 2017 financial year and a few days after British MPs recessed for Easter.

The UK MoD will now move forward with negotiations with the Organisation for Joint Armament Cooperation (OCCAR), a European intergovernmental organisation that runs the Boxer programme, and German manufacturer ARTEC.

'The UK played a major role in the original design, development and testing of the Boxer, and would reassume the rights it had as a project partner if a deal was to go through — allowing the option for the vehicle to be built and exported from the UK,' said an MoD statement.

An assessment phase will now commence to 'consider the comparable benefits of manufacturing locations and different supply chains for Boxer', which is expected to conclude next year.

The first vehicles are planned to enter service in 2023, which is also the initial operational capability date for the British Army's new strike brigade concept and MIV will be a key component.

The Boxer's modular design enables it to be configured for a range of mission-specific operations, while a protection system against mines, IEDs and ballistic threats contributes to crew survivability.

In February ARTEC — a joint venture between Rheinmetall and KMW — announced that it had signed agreements with a trio of British firms including BAE Systems, Pearson Engineering and the UK arm of French aerospace and defence firm Thales. This suggested that the German consortium was keen to demonstrate its selection and would result in tangible returns for the UK economy.

ARTEC stated that through this partnership 60% of Boxer’s value creation and 100% of its final assembly will be performed in the UK. Those statistics were echoed in the MoD's 31 March statement.

Although not set in stone, a significant amount of work is expected to be carried out at BAE Systems’ major combat vehicles facility at Telford, the site that manufactured the British Army's Warrior vehicles in the 90s. Pearson Engineering also has manufacturing capacity in Newcastle where the original Challenger 2 MBTs were built.

The MoD's announcement followed warnings from politicians that selecting the Boxer, without a competition, over bids from UK-based companies such as General Dynamics UK — makers of the Ajax vehicle — would place British manufacturing jobs at risk.

ARTEC’s agreement with three British companies and its commitment to UK assembly and job creation appears to have abated such concerns.

The UK MoD was originally involved in the development of Boxer between 1999 and 2004, during which BAE Systems produced 12 prototypes of the vehicle. According to ARTEC, acquiring the vehicle will resume the UK’s rights to export it from the UK.

Slovenia, Lithuania and Australia recently selected the Boxer to fulfill the nations’ requirement for 8x8 combat vehicles, following the adoption of the vehicle by the German Army and the Royal Netherlands Army.

The Australian Army, however, will be receiving fewer vehicles than initially planned, after higher than anticipated prices for the Boxer reduced the government’s order from 225 units to 211, at a cost of $4.09 billion.

Senior officers, keen for a rapid off-the-shelf acquisition to equip its new Strike brigades, had long favoured the Boxer with little thought for possible offset deals. However, pressure from industry for a competition and a cash-strapped Treasury keen to see strong returns on MoD investment appeared to stall the programme.
