State Department approves sale of six C-130J Super Hercules to Germany

 The US State Department approved the sale of six Lockheed Martin C-130J Super Hercules transport and tanker aircraft to Germany for an estimated $1.4 billion, according to the Defense Security Cooperation Agency.

 The approval comes as the aircraft’s larger European competitor, Airbus Defence & Space’s A400M transport aircraft, has struggled with production issues and has ramped down its delivery rate. Germany is a launch customer for the A400M, along with European NATO nations Spain, Belgium, Britain, France, Luxembourg and Turkey.

 Lockheed Martin’s potential sale includes three C-130J-30s, the stretch version of the aircraft, and three KC-130Js, the aerial refueling version of the aircraft. Also included in the sale are eight AN/ALE 47 Electronic Countermeasure Dispensers; eight AN/AAR-47A(V)2 Missile Warning Systems; eight AN/ALR-56M Radar Warning Receivers; and eight MX-20 Electro-Optical/Infrared Imaging Systems, among other subsystems and spare engines.

 The German Air Force plans to use the aircraft to conduct airlift, air refueling, and air drop missions as part of a French-German allied squadron based in Evreux, France, according to the sale approval. The KC-130Js will provide air refueling capability to German and French fighter and light transport aircraft, as well as helicopters.

 Airbus announced in March 2018 its plan to slow its final assembly rate for the A400M transport from a high of 19 aircraft in 2017 to only eight per year from 2020. Launch customers have balked at increased costs and delivery delays for the A400M. Consequently, Airbus has suffered financial penalties for the programme’s poor performance.

 Airbus and launch nations renegotiated the delivery schedule for the programme in March 2018. Under the revised production schedule, the manufacturer should end 2019 having delivered approximately 80 aircraft from the total of 174 A400Ms ordered, with the remaining aircraft taking until the early 2030s to be delivered.

Germany has a 'massive problem' that has reportedly knocked almost all of its Eurofighter Typhoon fighter jets out of commission

•The vast majority of German Eurofighter Typhoon fighter jets are reportedly not combat ready.
•It's the latest report of deficiencies knocking German military equipment out of commission.
•Germany's military has been plagued with such problems, and the government is debating whether to increase the defense budget to address them.

The German air force is dealing with a "massive problem" that has left all but four of its 128 Eurofighter Typhoon fighter jets unavailable for combat missions, according to a May 2 report by German news outlet Spiegel.

German engineers are worried about the jets' DASS defense system, which warns pilots of potential attack, because of cooling liquid seen leaking from the wingtip pod that contains sensors. The problem appeared about six months ago.

The problem centers on a specific component, called a "grease nipple," that is part of the system that cools the wingtip pods. Technicians were able to replace the malfunctioning pods, according to Spiegel, but supplies of the component are limited because the primary supplier needs to be recertified after a change in its ownership.

Without that system, the jets aren't able to carry out missions. At the moment, according to the report, only about 10 of German's Typhoons are able to start missions.

The Luftwaffe's Eurofighter readiness issues are compounded by a lack of air-combat missiles. Because of that shortfall, only four of the fighters are currently ready for combat missions, according to Spiegel.

German officials disputed the report.

Defence Ministry spokesman Col. Holger Neumann said the air force could meet its military requirements despite the issue with components needed for the self-protection system and that the military hoped to resolve the component issue in the near future.

"We hope to get this problem under control in several weeks or months," Neumann said, declining to say how many Eurofighters had been affected by the lack of spare parts. The Defense Ministry did say that the supply problem could make existing problems with the fighters' readiness worse, but did not elaborate.

Sources with knowledge of the issue also denied that only 10 Eurofighter jets were available for the Luftwaffe, pointing out that at least 14 jets are currently in service around the world.

Spiegel also described German government statements about fighter readiness as misleading.

The Luftwaffe counts all Eurofighter jets that are able to fly as available, including ones without functioning self-defense systems, according to the report.

Those jets can be used for training but not for NATO operations like air-policing missions over eastern Europe.

Germany has also registered 82 Eurofighters with NATO's High Readiness Force and Force of Lower Readiness.

Those designations put the fighters at NATO's disposal within certain periods. For the HRF, the fighters should be available in between zero and 90 days. FLR assets should be available in between 91 and 180 days.

But, according to Spiegel, since there are no current operational requests, Germany can say its forces are in compliance with NATO obligations.

"We can say with a good conscience that large parts of the force are ready for use because there is currently no mission," a source told Spiegel.

Equipment shortages and hardware problems

The issues facing the Eurofighters are not Germany's only military-readiness problem — they're not even Germany's only fighter-jet problem.

A report seen by Spiegel at the end of March found that Germany's Tornado fighter jets may not be able to join NATO missions because of technological deficiencies — including a lack of NATO friend-or-foe identification systems meant to prevent the alliance's jets from engaging each other.

Elsewhere in the German air force, only five of 16 A400M transport planes were ready for use as of February, and previous reports have found numerous issues with the service's fighters. None of the German navy's six submarines are combat-ready and just nine of 15 frigates are in full service. Moreover, only 95 of the army's 244 tanks are operational.

The issues stem in part from Germany's military and defense budget, which has steadily fallen since the end of the Cold War.

Berlin also drew down its forces in 2011 to focus on asymmetrical warfare. German troop numbers have shrunk — some 21,000 officer positions are vacant, which adds to readiness woes. It reversed course years later, in response to Russian action in Ukraine and renewed concerns about conventional warfare, but much of the equipment it shed has to be reacquired.

'Germany isolates itself'

German's military budget has become one of the first internal disputes for the new coalition government headed by Angela Merkel, who leads the conservative Christian Democratic Union.

Olaf Scholz, the new finance minister from the CDU's junior coalition partner, the Social Democratic Party, presented a 2018 budget that only offered the Defense Ministry half the money it requested, focusing instead on domestic measures and seeking to avoid additional debt.

Os pilotos das Forças Armadas da Alemanha (Bundeswehr) não estão conseguindo tempo de voo suficiente em meio à escassez de helicópteros e, consequentemente, estão perdendo suas licenças de voo. O relatório é o último a lançar luz sobre o estado embaraçoso das forças armadas da Alemanha.

German air force only has four active Typhoon jets

(https://ukdj.imgix.net/3728c65f6e123964412ad445fc5a8f4d_/q3V9eJs.jpg?auto=compress%2Cformat&fit=crop&h=580&ixlib=php-1.1.0&q=80&w=1021&wpsize=td_1021x580&s=6f71496bf603844fcaed1bdeca223a48)

According to local media, the German air force only has four combat-ready Typhoon jets out of 128.

The Luftwaffe is dealing with a “massive problem” that has left all but four of its 128 Typhoon jets unavailable for combat missions, according to a report by German news outlet Spiegel.


It’s understood that the readiness issues are compounded by a lack of air-combat missiles. Because of that shortfall, only four of the fighters are currently ready for combat missions, according to Spiegel. According to the article:

“The problem is complicated. Put simply, all “Eurofighters” on the wings have a sensor that detects enemy jets or attacks and warns the pilot. About half a year ago, it was discovered that the pod is no longer properly cooled.”

According to other reports, Germany’s air force is in ‘dire straits’ and funds are urgently needed to modernise its weaponry and systems.

“The Luftwaffe is at a low point,” Lieutenant General Ingo Gerhartz, who took over as chief of staff of the air force about a month ago, told 200 industry executives. Gerhartz said his assessment followed visits to various air force sites and discussions with troops that revealed serious deficits in the readiness of aircraft and other equipment.

“Aircraft are grounded due to a lack of spare parts, or they aren’t even on site since they’re off for maintenance by the industry,” he said. According to Reuters, he said a 400-hour inspection of the Eurofighter combat jets now took a total of 14 months, twice as long as planned, and this was unacceptable.

His comments followed recent reports by the defence ministry and the German parliament’s military ombudsman that revealed significant gaps in military equipment and personnel.

 Só para termos uma noção da escala de desinvestimento a que o regime confinou as FA's.
 O valor que o estado alemão vai gastar na aquisição de 3 novos Airbus A350-900 para executar missões de transporte VIP para a sua chancelaria. É 3 vezes superior ao orçamento total da FAP para 2019 e largamente superior ao orçamento total da Marinha e Força Aérea em conjunto para este ano.

NVF, tú só complicas, não percebes nada disto, então não estás a ver que a porta e carga da aeronave é para as pessoas 3XXL entrarem ::),

Os 310 são excelentes combis, a versão de carga pura e dura consegue levar 22 ULD's no main deck e 14 no lower deck, um autêntico burro de carga deve ter sido por isso que muitas companhias os tiveram e ainda tem a voar. Quanto a TAP se desfez dos seus a FAP devia ter ficado com um ou de preferência dois os aviões estavam em muito boas condições !!!

A versão MRRT é " de origem" ou um A330 da TAP é passível de ser modificado para essa versão?

Os A330 que a TAP está a "desfazer-se" são aviões "emprestados" pela Airbus para compensar o atraso dos A330 Neo e estão a ser devolvidos depois de sofrerem uma revisão geral e pintados com as cores das companhias para onde vão (o primeiro já foi para a Air Canadá, o CS-TOU).

É interessante ver que a TAP ainda tem alguns A330-200 próprios (não-alugados), 02 com 11/12 anos de serviço e outros 04 com cerca de 20 anos. No mercado usado, estes aparelhos custam menos de 25 milhões de euros. Se houvesse vontade política, a TAP podia ceder 02 destes A330-200 à FAP a troco de um perdão de dívida ao Estado equivalente ao valor de mercado dos aviões. Mas como não há interesse que se discuta a Luftwaffe.

Dos aviones de combate Eurofighter han colisionado en Alemania durante un vuelo de entrenamiento, sin que de momento haya trascendido si hay víctimas, según han confirmado autoridades militares y civiles. Uno de los pilotos ha sido encontrado con vida en la copa de un árbol, mientras continúa la búsqueda de un segundo piloto. Tras la colisión, los aparatos se han estrellado contra el suelo en el Estado de Mecklemburgo-Pomerania Occidental, separados diez kilómetros el uno del otro, según ha informado el ministro regional.


El lugar del choque se encuentra cerca del lago Drewitzer, unos 30 kilómetros al sur de Güstrow, una ciudad de unos 28.500 habitantes. Todavía no hay información sobre el estado de los pilotos, que cuentan en estos cazas con un mecanismo de expulsión —el asiento eyectable— para salir de la aeronave y llegar a tierra en paracaídas. Las fuerzas aéreas alemanas han informado a través de Twitter de que un tercer piloto vio caer dos paracaídas de los aviones estrellados.

Ficaram 6 a voar  :mrgreen:

Mais a sério, os pilotos ejectaram-se e estão bem.

Aparentemente um dos pilotos não resistiu  :'( , RIP.

Eurofighters collided at high altitude: Luftwaffe

27 June, 2019 SOURCE: FlightGlobal.com BY: Michael Gubisch London

Germany's air force has disclosed further details about the fatal collision between two Eurofighter combat aircraft that took place near Rostock on 24 June.

The pair were part of a formation of three single-seat Eurofighters practising an air combat mission at an altitude above 9,800ft, the Luftwaffe says.

During these exercises, two fighters intercept an opponent – represented by a third aircraft – and try to get into a position to strike.

The Luftwaffe says aircraft constantly change positions in a confined space at high speed during these exercises, and operate the mission as a visual flight.

Meteorological conditions for the exercise were "good", with few clouds and a clear sky, the Luftwaffe says. But two aircraft collided during the exercise and crashed in the Muritz lake district area in northeast Germany.

One of the pilots operated their ejection seat and survived with minor injuries, but the other pilot was killed.

The third pilot reported the accident and safely landed at the formation's base at Rostock airport. All three Eurofighters were part of the Luftwaffe's 73 Squadron.

The Luftwaffe says that while much of its flight training can be completed in simulators, practising air combat skills under "real conditions" delivers "indispensable experience" for pilots.

In order to get accustomed to "high physical strain" during manoeuvres, influences such as heat, direct sunlight, speed and g forces "must be 'live' experienced", the Luftwaffe says.

Around 500 servicemen and women are involved in the search and salvage operation in the crash area.

The two Eurofighters involved in the accident were delivered in 2010, and had each logged a total flight time of around 1,000h, the Luftwaffe says.

An investigation by the Bundeswehr is under way to determine the cause of the accident.

Premiere: An A400M In Action As Tanker

(Source: Bundeswehr; issued July 08, 2019)

The German Air Force is the first A400M operator to have cleared the aircraft for air-to-air refueling, and is also the first to have deployed an A400M to Jordan on its first operational air tanker mission. (Bundeswehr photo)

WUNSTORF, Germany / AL-ASRAK, Jordan --- Another new capability for the Luftwaffe: The A400M is now being tested abroad as a tanker aircraft. Its task: As part of Operation Counter Daesh, it is to refuel German and Allied aircraft in the air. The Luftwaffe’s Air Transport Squadron 62 has been working for a year to achieve this goal.

The Commander of Air Transport Wing (LTG) 62, Colonel Ludger Bette, has approved the first contingent of an Airbus A400M refueling version. "They approach this mission with LTG 62's own team spirit. I wish the team all the best, broken neck and broken legs and that you all come back home healthy," Bette told the 21 soldiers of the LTG 62 as they headed to Jordan, where they will replace an Airbus A310 in the refueling mission in Jordan.

Since August 2018, the certification of the A400M as refueling aircraft in the AAR (Air-to-Air-Refueling) version has been in progress. Air transport squadron (LTG) 62 from Wunstorf is the only Bundeswehr unit equipped with modern transport aircraft. At present, there are 30 A400Ms "on deck" in Wunstorf. In future, they will take over the transport missions of the C-160 Transall.

In addition to the flight preparedness of the Ministry of Defense with its three A310 multi-role transport tanker (MRTT) aircraft, the A400M aircraft are now an indispensable part of the strategic personnel and material transport capability of the German Armed Forces. So far, the use as MEDEVAC (Medical Evacuation) underlines the multi-role capability of the A400M.

The task migration is progressing and the role as tanker for German and Allied aircraft is also being taken over by the A400M. Currently, German Tornados, German and Spanish Eurofighters have been technically cleared for refueling from the A400M.

Additional user approvals, such as the Italian and British forces, are expected soon. The Luftwaffe is a pioneer, as Germany is the first A400M user nation to provide this capability.

All in all, the squadron will have ten sets of equipment available for retrofitting as tanker aircraft. This allows the A400M to be used flexibly. As a tanker aircraft, the Airbus can then refuel two aircraft at the same time. In total, around 40 tonnes of kerosene can be delivered, and up to ten aircraft can be refueled in one hour.

After numerous national and international certification flights, further refueling flights under operating conditions are on the agenda for the coming weeks.

The crews from Wunstorf now have the necessary procedures to carry out refueling missions under operating conditions. As part of the anti-IS Counter Daesh operation, the soldiers are deployed together with the task force.

Implementation will be parallel to flight operations with the A310 MRTT, also located at Jordan's Al-Asrak air base. Valuable experiences can be directly exchanged and used to further optimize this ability.

A machine for operating conditions

This "baptism of fire" is the final milestone for the operational readiness of the A400M as a tanker. Thanks to its ballistic protection, the A400M can also fly directly into operational areas such as Mali and Afghanistan and operate there.

The Luftwaffe Inspector General, Lieutenant General Ingo Gerhartz, agrees: "Today we are taking a giant step. With the deployment of the A400M to Jordan as a tanker, we are the first nation to deploy this aircraft. "

The adopted A400M AAR with the registration 54 + 10 started on time for Jordan and its first use as a refueling aircraft. At around 9:20 pm local time, it safely landed at the destination of Al-Asrak. At 30 degrees Celsius and a starry night in the desert, the landing lights of the A400M first fumbled out of the darkness towards the runway.

Joy about the task

One minute later, the machine touched Jordanian soil - Touch Down in ideal weather and some wind from the west. "The flight was quiet - of course emotional too, with the knowledge that with 21 soldiers and servicemen of my unit we are making the visible start for another important milestone in the capabilities of the A400M," said the pilot and commander of the mission after landing. "We are pleased to be able to apply in action the training we have had in recent months."

In the next two weeks, a lot of work will be done by the LTG 62 team. The test as a refueling aircraft in action - a real premiere that will use the German contingent Counter Daesh / Capacity Building Iraq to gain valuable experience in operations of the A400M AAR.
