E quanto à arma de serviço, a HK416 está bem posicionada para ser a nova aquisição.

A nova aquisição de quem?

Está certo, foi uma distração minha, ainda estavamos a falar em armamento europeu nos Estados Unidos, mas quando falaram na HK416 ser a nova aquisição pensei foi no concurso para as nossas forças :lol: . Já estou esclarecido, continuem.

Se um F-16 consegue voar a Mach 2, manobrar a 9Gs, e tiver as actualizações suficientes para conseguir lançar todo o tipo de armamento moderno existente, um bom radar, capacetes xpto, pods de iluminação de alvos, pods de guerra electrónica, etc.

A unica real superioridade do F-35 que o F-16 não consegue ter é a furtividade, mas isso também pode ser muito bonito na teoria porque se o F-35 levar material debaixo das asas a furtividade vai à vida, e também depende se é a versão F-35 (América) ou versão F-35 (Aliados paguem e calem :twisted: ).

HONOLULU - The Air Force says a B-52 bomber carrying six crew members has crashed off the island of Guam.
ADVERTISEMENT

The Coast Guard says two people have been recovered from the waters. Their condition was not immediately available.

Rescue crews from the Navy, Coast Guard and local fire department are searching for the others.

Officials say the crashed occurred about 25 miles northwest of Apra Harbor.

The accident is the second for the Air Force this year on Guam.

In February, a B-2 crashed at Andersen Air Force Base in the first-ever crash of a stealth bomber. The military estimated the loss of the aircraft at $1.4 billion.

Vought Aircraft Industries, Inc. achieved a major milestone this week by delivering its 100th composite empennage unit to Bell Helicopter in Amarillo, Texas, for the MV-22 Osprey variant.

“Everyone who works on this program recognizes the value our military services place on the Osprey,” said Program Director Chris Gould. “We are honored to be a part of this production team and support an aircraft platform that plays such a vital role with our troops.”

Three Vought facilities support the Osprey program. Vought’s Dallas facility is responsible for the engineering, design and production of the empennage. Its Nashville site, which currently fabricates the bond portion of the ramp door, was responsible for producing the first 62 shipsets of the empennage. Vought’s facility in Milledgeville, Ga., builds side skin assemblies, sponson and main landing gear panels.  About 245 people at Vought work on the Osprey program (200 in Dallas; 30 in Milledgeville; and 15 in Nashville).

The V-22 Osprey is produced under a strategic alliance between Bell Helicopter and The Boeing Company. It is the first aircraft designed from the ground up to meet the needs of the Defense Department's four U.S. armed services. The tiltrotor aircraft takes off and lands like a helicopter. Once airborne, its engine nacelles can be rotated to convert the aircraft to a turboprop airplane capable of high-speed, high-altitude flight.

Under the current program of record, the Marine Corps will purchase 360 MV-22s for missions including amphibious assault, ship-to-objective maneuvers and sustained operations ashore.  The Navy is slated to receive 48 MV-22s, which could be used for fleet logistic support and search and rescue. The Air Force Special Operations Command will acquire 50 CV-22 variants, with enhanced capabilities tailored for their unique mission requirements.

Bell Helicopter, a Textron (NYSE:TXT) company, is an industry-leading producer of commercial and military, manned and unmanned vertical lift aircraft and the pioneer of the revolutionary tilt rotor aircraft. Globally recognized for world-class customer service, innovation and superior quality, Bell's global workforce serves customers flying Bell aircraft in more than 120 countries

NEW YORK, Sept 10 (Reuters) - The U.S. Department of Defense is to cancel the recompetition of a $35 billion aerial refueling tanker contract on Wednesday, saying it is impossible to decide a winner by January, which was the expected deadline, a source familiar with the situation said.

The move by the Pentagon is a blow for U.S. defense contractor Northrop Grumman Corp (NOC.N: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz) and its European partner EADS (EAD.PA: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz), which won the original competition in February and was ready to offer the same plane in the rerun of the contest.

The Pentagon opted to rerun the competition after losing bidder Boeing Co (BA.N: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz) successfully protested the award with government auditors.

The cancellation of the recompetition may be good news for Boeing, which was asking for more time to develop its offering as it decides which of its planes to put forward for the program.

The Pentagon had planned to issue the final request for proposals for the competition by mid-August, with the aim of awarding a contract around the end of December.

The Pentagon's decision was first reported by The Wall Street Journal. The Department of Defense did not immediately return a call seeking comment. (Reporting by Bill Rigby and Andrea Shalal-Esa, Editing by Maureen Bavdek)

The B-3 Looks Like The B-2

September 21, 2008: The B-3 has been seen. The U.S. Air Force is working on a replacement for its current force of heavy bombers (20 B-2s, 67 B-1s and 76 B-52s). Models of what the new bomber might look like have been shown, and the "B-3" (officially the NGB, or New Generation Bomber) looks like the B-2. There are two proposals (from Northrop Grumman and Boeing). Both look like the B-2. For the Northrop Grumman proposal, the main difference is that the stubby wings are "cranked" (moved forward a bit, rather than continuing in a straight line from the body of the aircraft). These derivative designs are apparently favored because the air force knows it is unlikely to get the money for a radical (and expensive) new design. There is also talk of building it so it can operate with, or without, a crew. The air force hopes to get the B-3 into service in ten years. That may be possible, given that the air force has several billion dollars of its money currently invested in "black" (secret) aircraft programs. The B-3 spec calls for a smaller and stealthier aircraft that carries a ten ton bomb load (less than half what current heavy bombers haul). This is in recognition of the effectiveness of smart bombs, which are more than a hundred times more effective than unguided bombs.

Meanwhile, the most cost-effective bombers continue to be the half century old B-52s, simply because they are cheaper to operate. The well maintained B-52s are quite sturdy and have, on average, only 16,000 flying hours on them. The air force estimates that the B-52s won't become un-maintainable until they reach 28,000 flight hours. Thus these aircraft could serve another 20 or more years. The B-1 and B-2 were meant to provide a high tech (and much more expensive) replacement for the B-52, but the end of the Cold War made that impractical. The kinds of anti-aircraft threats the B-1 and B-2 were designed to deal with never materialized. This left the B-52 as the most cost effective way to deliver bombs. The B-1s and B-2s are getting some of the same weapons carrying and communications upgrades as the B-52, if only because these more modern aircraft provide a more expensive backup for the B-52.

Of the 744 B-52s built, only 94 are still fit for service. Nearly fifty have already been donated to museums (including one in Australia and one in South Korea.) Because of the Russia-U.S. START treaty, hundreds of B-52s in the "bone yard" were stripped of any useful equipment in the 1990s, and, since then, chopped up for scrap. This was all done out in the open, so that Russian spy satellites could confirm it.

In the last half century, the air force has developed six heavy bombers (the 240 ton B-52 in 1955, the 74 ton B-58 in 1960, the 47 ton FB-111 in 1969, the 260 ton B-70 in the 1960s, the 236 ton B-1 in 1985, and the 181 ton B-2 in 1992.) All of these were developed primarily to deliver nuclear weapons (bombs or missiles), but have proved more useful dropping non-nuclear bombs. Only the B-70 was cancelled before being deployed. The B-1 was delayed and almost cancelled, but proved that the air force would do anything to keep the heavy bombers coming.

The air force generals are now asking the aircraft designers for a subsonic, long range heavy bomber that could operate with, or without, a crew. Since the B-2 requires only a two pilots, and many commercial airliners have flight control equipment that, with a little tweaking, could eliminate the pilots altogether, the idea of heavy bomber UAV is well within the capabilities of current technology. The way this is going, it's likely that the next heavy bomber will be smaller (60-100 tons) subsonic, stealthy, uninhabited and familiar looking. And if rumors from the world of "black projects" are any indication, it is already under construction. 4
