Lockheed Martin Awarded to Produce Parts of M142 HIMARS for US and Foreign Countries


Citar
Lockheed Martin Missile Fire Controls, Grand Prairie, Texas, was awarded a $23,067,054 modification to contract W31P4Q-19-C-0101 for the purchase of production parts for the production of M142 HIMARS (High Mobility Artillery Rocket System) launchers. Work will be performed in Camden, Arizona, with an estimated completion date of Dec. 30, 2023. Fiscal 2019 missile procurement (U.S. Army) funds; 2020 United States Marine Corp funds; and 2020 Foreign Military Sales (Romania, Singapore, United Arab Emirates, Jordan and Finland) funds in the amount of $23,067,054 were obligated at the time of the award. U.S. Army Contracting Command, Redstone Arsenal, Alabama, is the contracting activity.

The M142 High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS) is a light multiple rocket launcher developed in the late 1990s for the United States Army, mounted on a standard Army M1140 truck frame. The HIMARS carries six rockets or one MGM-140 ATACMS missile on the U.S. Army’s new Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV) five-ton truck, and can launch the entire Multiple Launch Rocket System Family of Munitions (MFOM). HIMARS ammunition is interchangeable with the MLRS M270A1, however it is only able to carry one pod rather than the standard two for the M270 and A1 variants. It was designed as a small, mobile, MLRS, with the ability to ‘shoot-and-scoot’.

The M142 High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS) is the light, wheeled version of the M270 Multiple Launch Rocket System (MLRS). The HIMARS utilizes the same pod as the M270 MLRS uses. A pod can hold six rockets or a single missile. The windows are made of glass and layers of sapphire. The launcher is C-130 transportable. The chassis is produced by BAE Systems Mobility & Protection Systems (formerly Armor Holdings Aerospace and Defense Group Tactical Vehicle Systems Division), the OEM of the FMTV. The M142 HIMARS is now in service with the United States, Singapore, United Arab Emirates, Jordan, Poland, Finland, and Romania. Other countries including Canada, Qatar, and the Philippines has requested the United States to acquire M142 HIMARS.

Philippine Army's Light Tank and Wheeled APC projects awarded to Israel's Elbit Systems


With the Philippines looking at reopening itself to business despite COVID-19 pandemic still ongoing, it looks like the Department of National Defense (DND) and the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP are doing the same now.

As the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) confirming the release of funding for the initial 15% of the total project costs of the Light Tank and Wheeled Armored Personnel Carrier (APC) Acquisition Projects of the Philippine Army (PA), we now believe its time to announce the results of both projects.

Not surprising, many of our community members guessed who the winners are for both the Light Tank and Wheeled APC APC Acquisition Projects.  And yes, MaxDefense Philippines can finally confirm that the winner for both projects is none other than Elbit Systems Land & C4I of Israel, working closely with the Israeli Ministry of Defense, which received the Notice of Award (NOA) for the projects a few months ago.

Elbit Systems was working with General Dynamics European Land Systems (GDELS) and Excalibur Army/Czechoslovak Group to offer the Sabrah Light Tank family using the ASCOD 2 tracked armored vehicle and the Pandur II 8x8 wheeled armored vehicle are platforms.

Also, Elbit Systems was working with IVECO Defense Vehicles for the Wheeled APC project, which offered to use the Guarani 6x6 wheeled APC.

MaxDefense previously mentioned in past posts and blogs, as well as in our extension Philippine Defense Resource, that as as October 2019, the Department of National Defense (DND) already released a Acquisition Decision Memorandum (ADM) that points to the Light Tank and Wheeled APC Projects to be acquired through Government-to-Government  (G2G) process.

This was later affirmed in April 2020 with the PA and DND finally confirming that the project would be undertaken with the Israeli Ministry of Defense's International Defense Cooperation Directorate (MODSIBAT). So far, IMOD-SIBAT has  assigned only Elbit Systems as their proponent.

The DND was already preparing the details and terms for the project's contract when the Philippine government decided to stop international travel and close the country due to COVID-19 pandemic. This delayed the entire process since both the Light Tank and Wheeled APC projects were among those affected by the realignment and diversion of funding as covered by Republic Act 11469, or the Bayanihan to Heal and One Act.

The Light Tank's 1st MYCA allocation worth Php1,422,649,800.00 provided under GAA FY2019, and the Wheeled APC's 1st and 2nd MYCA allocations worth Php339,780,000.00 and Php792,820,000.00 as provided by GAA FY2019 and FY2020, respectively were among those included in the fund diversions/But not all was lost. Due to the realignment, the Armed Forces of the Philippines and the DND revised its funding plan for FY2020, by identifying which projects from the original GAA FY2019 and FY2020 are the most important. Among those considered important were the Light Tank and Wheeled APC projects. This allowed both projects to be re-assigned with funding of what remained of the GAA FY2019 and Y2020
funds.

Thus, the 1st MYCA for the Light Tank worth Php1,422,649,800.00 and the 1st MYCA for the Wheeled APC worth Php339,780,000.00 were restored. They only adjusted the project's delivery schedule which is now to be completed by 2022 instead of 2021. The 3rd and final MYCA allocations for both projects were also moved to be funded under FY2022. This revision was approved by the DND and national government on May 2020, and paved the way to continue with the finalization of both projects.

As early as August 2020, MaxDefense already received confirmation that the DND has released Notices of Awards (NOA) for both projects to Elbit Systems Land & C4I, which also represented their partners in the project. When Elbit Systems formally included the Sabrah Light Tank family into their portfolio as posted on their website since last August 2020, it was actually a heads-up that something positive already happened. The information was also confirmed by MaxDefense sources who were familiar with the project.

And since the Wheeled APC would be closely tied to the Light Tank Project, it was expected that it would also be reaching the same milestone.

With the funding allocation for both projects already released, its only a matter of time for both project to proceed further.

Why Guarani 6x6 for Wheeled APC, and not Pandur II 6x6?

Another main point that many of our readers have been asking, is why did Elbit Systems offered to use the IVECO Guarani 6x6 for its Wheeled APC offer, rather than use the GDELS/Excalibur Army Pandur II 6x6? Commonality should have been a factor in deciding to go with Pandur II 6x6 since it shares a lot of parts and traits as the Pandur II 8x8 that Elbit offered for the Wheeled Tank component of the Light Tank project. According to Army sources, it was the Philippine Army's Technical Working Group who actually decided to go for the IVECO Guarani, as Elbit Systems offered both the Guarani 6x6 and Pandur II 6x6 for the project. But it appears that Pandur II was more expensive than the Guarani, since Guarani benefits from cheaper. Brazilian labour and steel compared to the Pandur II which is produced in the Czech Republic.

Also, if Elbit Systems offered to use IVECO's Italian-made SuperAV 8x8 wheeled armored vehicle for the Wheeled Tank component of the Light Tank project, it would also be more expensive than the Pandur II 8x8, thus the decision to stick with Pandur II 8x8. Honestly, this is one of the flaws in the Philippine defense procurement, as it makes more sense for the Philippine Army to have chosen the Pandur II 6x6 if cost is the only issue.

Made in Spain

Ibero SMV20, el blindado 4x4 multipropósito de la española TSD que puede alcanzar las 14 toneladas y que ya tendría cliente lanzador



Citar
El nuevo concepto de vehículo táctico multipropósito Ibero SMV20 desarrollado por TSD – Technology and Security Developments ha sido presentado hoy en las instalaciones de la compañía en Herencia. El SMV20, por Security Multipurpose Vehicle, es el resultado de la colaboración de TSD con otras compañías españolas, como Escribano Mechanical & Engineering, Hispamast, RFE o DTA Innovation, materializando 30 años de experiencia en el desarrollo y fabricación de vehículos para aplicaciones de seguridad y defensa.

Este proyecto de colaboración ilustra las posibilidades de cooperación de la industria nacional para configurar un vehículo táctico multipropósito con elevada habitabilidad y ergonomía, de concepción modular, que puede ser adaptado a aplicaciones de seguridad y defensa como la protección de fronteras, destacando por su elevado nivel de protección para el personal.

El Ibero es un 4x4 de gran tamaño basado en la probada plataforma Unimog de Mercedes lo que asegura un elevado nivel de movilidad y robustez. Con 340 cv de potencia, ha sido evaluado en las instalaciones del Campus de la Marañosa del Instituto Nacional de Técnica Aeroespacial (INTA), se trata de un vehículo diseñado en torno a un concepto modular que permitirá adaptarlo a las necesidades concretas de sus clientes. La versión presentada hoy tiene un peso de 9,5 toneladas pero hay versiones de más tamaño, como la Ibero Pro que alcanza las 14 toneladas y que ya tendría un cliente lanzador.

El vehículo presentado hoy cuenta con capacidad para seis tripulantes incluyendo un puesto específico en el asiento del tripulante para el operador de la estación de empleo remoto Guardian. Tras estos, en el compartimento principal, el jefe del vehículo y el operador de comunicaciones cuentan con puestos dotados de terminales específicas para los equipos de comunicaciones y el sensor OTEOS montado sobre el mástil desplegable de Hispamast.

El vehículo cuenta con un elevado volumen interior que permite configurarlo de diferentes maneras, puerta posterior de apertura lateral, troneras para el empleo de arma en las puertas y bajo las ventanillas, cámaras exteriores que sustituyen a los espejos retrovisores y que permiten una conciencia situacional de 360 grados.  La posibilidad de que el cliente opere distintas versiones del Ibero redunda positivamente en los costes asociados al coste de vida, reduciendo la huella logística.

La protección balística y antiminas es de nivel 1 según la normativa STANAG pero se podrá incrementar según las necesidades del usuario. Se puede configurar para misiones que van desde la protección de fronteras, misiones de seguridad interior, tareas policiales, así como misiones de mantenimiento o imposición de la paz donde la separación entre vehículos militares y policiales es a menudo difusa.

El Ibero ofrece la posibilidad de integrar sistemas de armas de empleo remoto como la Guardian 2.0 o sensores electroópticos para tareas de vigilancia, como la OTEOS,  soluciones ambas proporcionadas por Escribano Mechanical & Engineering, socio de TSD en el programa y que forman parte del sistema SCOA o Sistema de Combate y Observación Avanzada. Este sistema ha sido diseñado para misiones de reconocimiento diurno y nocturno con capacidad de defensa de corto y medio alcance. Todos los sistemas están controlado por un Batlle Management System (BMS) desarrollado por la compañía que facilita la toma de decisiones sobre un blanco detectado por los medios de observación, además de facilitar la recepción de información procedente de sistemas externos.

Iveco Defesa Sells VBTP-MR Guarani 6X6 to the Philippine Army


Iveco Defesa has supplied the Philippine Army with 28 Guarani 6×6 armoured personnel carriers. At a total value of $47 million (€39.3 million), the contract marks the first export win for the vehicles. Iveco Defese will arms Philippines cars with an operated turret with a 12.7 mm machine gun or a 40 mm automatic grenade launcher. Onboard systems include an E-LynX software-defined radio, a COMBAT NG command and control system and a TORCH-X combat management system, all supplied by Israel’s Elbit Systems. The design was also adapted by IVECO for its SuperAV 8×8, which eventually was selected by the US Marine Corps for its Amphibious Combat Vehicle program to complement and eventually replace the USMC’s AAV7A1 amphibious assault vehicles.


The VBTP-MR (Viatura Blindada Transporte de Pessoal – Média de Rodas; “Armored Personnel Carrier Vehicle – Medium Wheeled Type) Guarani is a 6×6 armoured personnel carrier developed by Iveco and the Brazilian Army as part of its “URUTU-III” modernization program aimed to replace all EE-11 Urutu by 2015. The 8×8 version of the VBTP-MR is the base of Iveco’s Superav armoured personnel carrier. In the program other Brazilian Companies also participated, such as IMBEL (Communications), ELBIT (Armaments), Usiminas and Villares (development of national ballistic structural steel). The Brazilian Army has signed with Iveco a contract worth about €2.5 billion for supplying armoured personnel carriers of the VBTP-MR model. The contract covers the delivery of 2,044 vehicles and logistical support for a period of 20 years.

The VBTP is a new family of 19,6 tonnes 6×6 armoured, amphibious vehicles, developed jointly by Iveco and the Brazilian Army (DCT – Department of Science and Technology) following the contract signed in 2009. Fitted with an Iveco-FPT 9-litre, 281 kW (383 HP) bi-fuel common-rail engine, coupled to an automatic gearbox, the VBTP can carry 11 personnel. It is 7.0 metres long, 2.7 metres wide and 2.3 metres in height and can be transported by C-130 Hercules and KC-390 aircrafts. The adoption of a modular approach to product development provides numerous advantages including development of product variants without unnecessary re-engineering (reducing timescales and costs), optimum combination of power, protection and payload, flexibility in operation, support through improved maintainability and ease of upgrade.


The Guarani can be equipped with manned and unmanned turrets carrying armament from 5.56 to 30 mm. The requirements for the VBTP-MR VBCI included an ELBIT remote control turret, equipped with a Mk44 Bushmaster II cannon and a 7.62mm machine gun; it should also be able fire anti-tank guided missiles. This turret, capable of 360 degree swivel and elevation / depression of -15 to +60 degrees, was chosen by the Brazilian Army on a selection made from among four companies. It is expected to be manufactured in Brazil. The firing system has a laser rangefinder, vision and fire control by day/night thermal vision, double shot of command (commander and gunner of the car, with precedence for the later), automatic target tracking system, and hunter killer smoke launchers. A significant aspect of this vehicle is that the turret is equipped with weapons sights and it is stabilized in two axes, allowing firing on the move with very high probability of hit within the first shot.

Taurus Armas fecha venda de 12 Mil fuzis T4 para o Exército das Filipinas


A Taurus Armas S.A. divulgou (26DEZ2020), que, após o fuzil Taurus T4 ser aprovado nos rigorosos testes qualificatórios de resistência realizados nas Filipinas, a empresa oficialmente fechou a venda de 12.412 unidades dessa arma para suprir o Exército Filipino.

Para a Taurus, a transação é significativa, tanto pela quantidade envolvida, como pelo fato de ser a primeira força militar do mundo a adotar o fuzil T4, já que, até então, a arma só era adotada por forças policiais no Brasil e em outros países.

A entrega de todo o lote será realizada durante o primeiro semestre de 2021.
O preço ofertado pela fabricante brasileira foi de 590,78 dólares por unidade, o que significará um significativo ingresso de mais de 35 milhões de reais nos cofres da companhia.

O fuzil T4, produzido na planta da Taurus no Brasil, deverá ser o primeiro fuzil automático no calibre 5.56 produzido fora dos Estados Unidos a ser adquirido pelo Exército Filipino. Em todas as licitações internacionais anteriores, o Exército das Filipinas adquiriu esse tipo de armamento de fabricantes norte-americanos.

A arma é baseada na consagrada plataforma M4/M16, amplamente empregada pelas Forças Armadas em todo o mundo e, principalmente, pelos países membros da OTAN, por ser considerada extremamente confiável, leve e de fácil emprego e manutenção.

A adoção do Taurus T4 pelo Exército das Filipinas comprova, mais uma vez em nível mundial, a excelente qualidade das armas produzidas pela Taurus, decorrente do exigente protocolo de desenvolvimento de produtos do Centro Integrado de Tecnologia e Engenharia da empresa.


Parceria com empresa filipina

A Taurus estabelecerá uma parceria com a empresa filipina Trust Trade, que prestará serviços de pós-venda nesse país (assistência técnica e reposição de peças). Esta empresa é a responsável pela distribuição exclusiva dos produtos das brasileiras Taurus Armas, CBC/Magtech e Condor Tecnologias Não-Letais, além de importadora e distribuidora internacional líder em armas de fogo, munições e acessórios nesse país asiático, atendendo às necessidades da polícia, agentes da lei, militares e civis para transações individuais, no atacado e institucionais.
 
Filipinas e Índia credenciam a Taurus no imenso mercado asiático

O fornecimento de fuzis e pistolas para as forças armadas e policiais das Filipinas e a joint venture com a indiana Jindal Defense estabelecem um cenário promissor para a Taurus Armas, pois credenciam a empresa junto ao imenso mercado asiático, pressupondo novos e significativos negócios no maior e mais inexplorado mercado mundial para armamentos leves.

Como exemplo, recentemente a Índia solicitou 10 unidades do Fuzil T4 para submetê-los a testes, haja vista que pretende fazer uma licitação que poderá variar entre 350.000 e 500.000 fuzis CQB (Close Quarters Battle - arma mais curta que o fuzil de assalto, destinada ao combate aproximado) para suas unidades de Infantaria, especialmente as que atuam nas regiões da fronteira com o Paquistão.

O pioneirismo da Taurus e da CBC, sendo parceiros de primeira hora do Primeiro-Ministro indiano Narendra Modi em seu Programa Make in India (concretizado por meio das joint ventures já firmadas com a Jindal Defence e com a SSS Defence, respectivamente), poderá pesar favoravelmente na balança das negociações para a escolha do novo fuzil CQB indiano.

Além desse fator, poderão também pesar também no negócio a afinidade ideológica e os interesses comerciais mútuos entre o PM Modi e o Presidente Jair Bolsonaro, bem como a ambição geopolítica da Índia nas Américas, tendo o Brasil como epicentro. Correndo por fora, há ainda o fato (noticiado pela imprensa indiana) de o governo desse país asiático ter grande interesse em firmar uma parceria com a Embraer, visando sua divisão de jatos comerciais.
