Next-Generation Fighter(NGF) Novo caça europeu
« em: Novembro 22, 2018, 02:10:17 pm »
France and Germany have agreed to progress development of a next-generation combat aircraft, with an announcement on 20 November that both countries are to launch demonstrator design studies next year.

The announcement was made on Twitter by French defence minister Florence Parly, who said the agreement she signed in June with her German counterpart, Ursula von der Leyen, to approve the next-generation combat aircraft project had now been firmed up with a commitment to begin the formal design of aircraft and powerplant demonstrators in 2019.

"In June, France and Germany decided to develop, together, the combat aircraft of the future. [There was a] decisive step today with the agreement to begin the studies of architecture and design and the launch of demonstrators (aircraft and engine) by mid-2019. It's moving!", Parly tweeted.

The June agreement came two months after the project was given the formal go-ahead at the ILA Berlin Airshow in April. Referred to as the New Fighter (NF) or Next-Generation Fighter (NGF), the manned combat aircraft is to be developed to operate in conjunction with a swarm of unmanned 'wingmen' as a next-generation weapon system (NGWS).

This NGWS will form part of a wider future combat air system (FCAS, or Système de Combat Aérien Futur [SCAF]) that will include the European medium-altitude long-endurance (MALE) remotely piloted aircraft system (RPAS); an ultra-low observable (LO) unmanned combat aerial vehicle (UCAV); future cruise missiles; and other legacy airborne platforms operating in the future battlespace.

When the project was approved, it was decided that France and Dassault should be the lead nation for the NF/NGF component, with Germany and Airbus taking charge of the other FCAS systems. According to Reuters, French engine manufacturer Safran is to announce a joint venture with Germany's MTU to develop the aircraft's powerplant.

Speaking at the IQPC International Fighter conference in Berlin the week prior to Parly's pronouncement, senior military sources from both countries as well as Spain, which is set to join the effort later this year, said that they are currently engaged in their own national studies, and that these studies will be coalesced into a single solution over the coming years.

Vamos ver se não se vão chatear novamente por causa da versão naval.

Pois, mas desta vez parece que a pressão é maior, vamos ver o que dá, e se em algum o grupo de Tempest se junta, tenho as minhas duvidas mas nunca se sabe.

Spain is to join the Franco-German effort to develop a next-generation fighter (NGF) aircraft as part of a wider Future Combat Air System (FCAS), the country's Ministry of Defence (MoD) announced on 3 December.

Defence Minister Margarita Robles has submitted a letter to her French and German counterparts, Florence Parly and Ursula von der Leyen, requesting that Spain's request to join the project be formalised in a letter of intent (LOI) or memorandum of understanding (MOU).

Under the project, France, Germany, and now potentially Spain will develop an NGF to fly in partnership with unmanned 'wingmen', with the combination of these two elements comprising the Next-Generation Weapon System (NGWS). This NGWS will be combined with all other air assets in the future operational battlespace to form the FCAS system-of-systems. Spain's initial contribution to the project would amount to approximately EUR25 million (USD28 million) over the next two years.

Robles' declaration for the Franco-German project comes three weeks after Jane's first reported that Spain was considering options for the future replacement of its Boeing F/A-18 Hornet fleet in the 2035-plus timeframe and that it was in discussions with Dassault and Airbus, as well as a UK Team Tempest that includes BAE Systems, Leonardo UK, MBDA, and Rolls-Royce.

As reported at the time, Brigadier General Leon-Antonio Machés Michavila of the Spanish Air Force (Ejército del Aire Español: EdAE) said that the deciding factor as to which team the country would opt for would largely be based on the level of industrial participation being offered. "We want to be partners and not customers," the general said.

While Gen Machés said that Spain was talking to both European parties about future collaboration, a briefing slide he presented showed the country had already decided to be part of the Franco-German project rather than the UK one.

Como se previa a Espanha também vai entrar no projeto do NGF.
