Eurofighter Programme - Supporting Belgian Jobs and Industry
(Source: Eurofighter Typhoon; issued Dec 07, 2017)

The European consortium promoting Eurofighter has revealed further details of its industrial offer to Belgium as part of the ongoing bid to replace the Belgian air force’s F-16 aircraft.

 --Potential creation of more than 1,800 new jobs in Belgium
 --Builds on 40,000 jobs currently sustained across the Belgian supply chain and wider economy by the Eurofighter partners
 --Positions Belgian industry as a key player in the future European defence and aerospace sector through participation in the Eurofighter programme.

 Anthony Gregory, Campaign Director for Belgium at BAE Systems, said: “Eurofighter is designed, manufactured and assembled in Europe, with Belgian industry already an established part of the supply chain. Our proposal ensures that every Euro invested by Belgium on Eurofighter would help sustain more than 100,000 direct jobs across the continent, including in Belgium.

“Our Eurofighter proposal offers much more than sustainment and growth of Belgium’s aerospace and defence sectors. It offers an opportunity for Belgium to have a voice and play an active role in the future development of Eurofighter and, through this, opportunities in any next generation combat aircraft programme in Europe, with the largest defence and aerospace companies in Europe.”

Peter Maute, Sales Director for Eurofighter said: “Every Euro spent on Eurofighter supports high technology aerospace and defence industrial capabilities and jobs across Europe and the EU. The industrial proposals being put forward as part of the Eurofighter offer seek to invest jointly in the future technologies and capabilities required to maintain and grow competitive market positions, generating long term sustainable opportunities for Belgium across the aerospace and defence manufacturing sectors. They also seek to provide Belgium with an influence over the future of the product and programme.”

These additional details follow the signing of an agreement to support the establishment of two National Innovation Centres in Belgium, which took place on October 26. The agreement commits Eurofighter partner companies from Spain, Germany, Italy and the UK to support the centres in the event of a successful Eurofighter bid.

 The Eurofighter proposal expects to deliver on these commitments by:

-- offering a place in Europe’s largest ever defence programme, where Belgium will be part of defining the future direction of capability. Investment is expected through the life of the programme including but not limited to support, electronic warfare, mission planning and flight training;

 -- an investment in research and development, ensuring that Belgium has the opportunity to continually refine its defence and aerospace manufacturing sector capabilities with the latest materials and technologies for the future. This will enable it to work as a strengthened force within the European technological industrial base to meet the challenges of participating in the next generation of military platforms; and

 -- providing Belgian industry the means to sustain and build on existing highly skilled jobs. The proposal specifically targets high value materials and manufacturing research and development that, through collaborative funding, will enhance the global prospects of aerospace companies and those in adjacent sectors. Based on previous experience, these initiatives are expected to return between 15-20% on every Euro spent in the high-value sectors of the economy.

Belgium Allocates €258M to Euro Tanker Fleet

 (Source: Belga news service; published Dec. 23, 2017)

 (Published in French and Dutch; unofficial translation by

 The Council of Ministers decided Friday (Dec. 22) to allocate 258 million euros to the Belgian participation in a fleet of European tankers, an amount that corresponds to the value of an aircraft Airbus A330 MRTT (Multi Role Tanker Transport), the Ministry of Defense has announced.

 The aircraft will be configured for in-flight refueling missions of all current and future fighter jets.

 This Belgian decision will therefore increase from 7 to 8 aircraft the European fleet being prepared for the Multinational Multi Role Tanker Transport (MMF) program for the benefit of the European Union and NATO, and to compensate for one of the main shortcomings of European armies.

 Germany, Norway, the Netherlands and Luxembourg have already placed a firm order for seven Airbus A330-200 MRTTs, built by Airbus Defense and Space (ADS), a subsidiary of the European group Airbus.

 The eight tankers are acquired and operated according to the European principle of "pooling and sharing", said the Minister of Defense, Steven Vandeput (N-VA), in a statement.

 The MMF program will be funded by five countries, which will have exclusive exploitation rights for these NATO-owned aircraft, according to a pooling agreement.

 The aircraft will be configured for in-flight refueling missions of all current and future fighter jets (US F-35 Lightning II, French Rafale and European Eurofighter), passenger and freight transport, and medical evacuation.

 The delivery of the first seven aircraft is expected between 2020 and 2022, according to Airbus.

 But Belgium should be able to resort quickly - before the delivery of the 8th aircraft, which should be operational by 2025, according to Mr Vandeput – to the A330 MRTT "pool" for missions to refuel its F-16 or for medical evacuation, according to Mr. Vandeput's entourage.

 The MMF program was initiated by the European Defense Agency (EDA) in 2012. The European Organization for Co-operation in Armaments (OCCAR) manages the acquisition phase of the MMF as the executing agency of the contract for NSPA, a NATO agency. At the end of this phase, NSPA will be responsible for the complete management of the fleet life-cycle.

 At least some of these aircraft will be registered in the Netherlands and based in Eindhoven (southern Netherlands) to replace the current KDC-10 tankers of the Dutch air force, with an advanced base in Cologne (Germany). Costs and personnel will be allocated according to the number of flying hours required by each country, under the supervision of the European Tactical Transport Command (EATC, based in Eindhoven),

 The "strategic vision" for the Belgian army by 2030 endorsed in June 2016 by the Michel government plans to invest in such a device to the tune of 300 million euros in the period 2024-2027.

 Proven in combat, the A330 MRTT is equipped with an Airbus Aerial Refueling Boom System (ARBS), and two underwater tube / basket refueling pods. Both systems are used to refuel in flight all types of aircraft (combat or transport) in service in the West.

 According to the Defense, this type of aircraft totals 56 firm orders by eight countries. France has ordered nine copies - out of a total need expressed of twelve aircraft - with a first delivery scheduled for 2018. This model has also been selected by India and Qatar.

A Bélgica vai vender a sua frota de aviões de transporte VIP e vai antes contratar uma empresa civil: Defensie verkoopt commerciële vloot en zoekt naar dienstencontract.

Mecânico destrói um F-16 por acidente

Um mecânico da base aérea de Florennes, na Bélgica, destruiu um F-16, durante as operações de manutenção da aeronave. O acidente, que aconteceu na última quinta-feira, provocou também danos noutra aeronave e fez ainda dois feridos.

Eram 14:10 locais (13:10 em Lisboa), quando um mecânico ativou um míssil Vulcan M614-1 de uma aeronave F-16. Os dois técnicos que saíram feridos estavam a trabalhar na base aérea quando sofreram danos auditivos, após a explosão, avança o jornal The Brussels Times.

A Força Aérea Belga confirmou que um incêndio aconteceu na base durante trabalhos de manutenção, fazendo com que uma aeronave F-16 se incendiasse. Confirmaram, também, danos colaterais numa segunda aeronave que se encontrava na pista.
A causa do incidente está agora a ser investigada, mas a hipótese de um ato criminoso está a ser descartada, afirma o porta-voz do Gabinete do Ministro da Defesa, Laurence Mortier. O Ministério Público Federal já visitou o local da explosão.A base aérea de Florennes é a casa da Segunda Ala Tática, com mais de 20 aeronaves de guerra F-16, divididas em dois esquadrões. Quatro destas aeronaves estão, atualmente, na Lituânia, na missão de policiamento aéreo do Báltico da NATO.

A F-16 é uma aeronave de 1982 a 1991, cuja reparação é constantemente debatida, dado que a substituição de 54 aeronaves está estimada em 3 biliões de euros.
A Vida é um teste e uma incumbência de  confiança.

Caramba para as fontes da notícia...não foi nenhum mí é vulcan é o canhão do F-16.
Grande tantas seguranças como é que conseguiu ativar o canhão?
Se antes não era prático retirar o tambor municiado para acções de manutenção parece que agora vai ser pelo menos na Força Aérea Belga...
Um abraço
