Dassault Chief Congratulates Trudeau, Pitches Rafale

http://www.defensenews.com/story/defens ... e/74427462  
Citar
Dassault Aviation Chairman Éric Trappier said Thursday he had written a letter of congratulations to Justin Trudeau, the new elected Canadian prime minister, and pitched an offer of the Rafale fighter if Ottawa pulled out of the US F-35 program.  

"We have to wait and see what he decides now he is in office", Trappier told the association of aerospace journalists. "I wrote a letter to congratulate him and to remind him that if (because of the cancellation by Canada of the purchase of 65 F-35s  included by Trudeau in his electoral program) the F-35 were cancelled, the Rafale would be potentially proposed". The letter was sent in the last two days (...)

First Italian F-35 Mission Highlights Partnerships

http://m.military.com/daily-news/2015/11/06/first-italian-f-35-mission-highlights-partnerships.html

Two Italian pilots completed their initial F-35 Lightning II training flights November 5  at Luke Air Force Base, marking the first  F-35 flights under control of Italian pilots.

 The flights were also another significant step forward in the F -35 program as they showcased the full partnership aspects of F -35 operations at Luke AFB. One Italian flew his mission in an Australian F-35 with an Air Force Reserve ground instructor on the headset. In addition, the maintenance team was composed of Lockheed-Martin contractors and an Australian maintenance liaison officer (...)

The F-35 Joint Strike Fighter might not be produced in sufficient numbers to maintain the U.S. Air Force’s current operational capabilities due to budgetary constraints, according to Aerospace Daily & Defense Report. As a result the service is considering filling the capabilities gap with 72 Boeing F-15s, Lockheed-Martin F-16’s, or even Boeing F/A-18E/F Super Hornets.

“F-15s and F-16s are now expected to serve until 2045, when an all-new aircraft will be ready, and plans to modernize F-16s with active electronically scanned array radars and other improvements are being revived,” the article states.

U.S. Air Force officials and industry officials revealed as much at the Defense IQ International Fighter Conference, which took place November 17-19 in London. The U.S. Air Force “is struggling to afford 48 F-35s a year” for the first years of full-rate production a senior Air Force officer told Aerospace Daily & Defense Report.

Full rate-production is slated to begin in 2019 and the U.S. Air Force wants to buy 60 planes in 2020, and 80 F-35 per year after that. This year, the Air Force is to receive 28 F-35s, whereas in 2016 the number is slated to increase to 44. By 2038, the service wants to have 1763 F-35 aircraft in service. However, this procurement schedule might not be financially feasible for the Air Force.

“Consequently, F-15s and F-16s will serve longer and will outnumber F-35s and F-22s through the late 2020s,” Aerospace Daily &Defense Report notes. The article furthermore explains:

The service is looking at a three-tier force, with 300 F-16s and some F-15s being modernized “to augment the F-35 and F-22 in a high-end fight” and others assigned to low-end operations, while the contemplated 72-aircraft buy (an Air Force wing) would sustain force numbers and provide additional modern aircraft.

Interestingly, a senior U.S. Air Force official revealed that “the last time we looked, this was more expensive than buying F-35s in bulk.” However, he confirmed that the option of purchasing 72 aircraft is nevertheless still on the table.

The U.S. Air Force has already asked for cost estimates on procuring new F-15s and life-extension/upgrade options. “Also under consideration is a plan to augment U.S. Air Force electronic attack capabilities by fitting some F-15Es with a version of the Raytheon Next Generation Jammer pod,” the article states.

Overall, the Pentagon is planning to procure 2,457 aircraft by 2038. Total acquisition costs are estimated at over $400 billion making it the U.S. military’s most expensive acquisition program. Operation and support costs throughout the aircraft’s lifetime are estimated at over a $1 trillion.

The supersonic fifth-generation F-35 Joint Strike Fighter exists in three variants:  The F-35A conventional takeoff and landing variant for the U.S. Air Force; the F-35B short takeoff and vertical landing variant for the U.S. Marine Corps, and the F-35C carrier-suitable variant for the U.S. Navy.

Isto para nós são péssimas notícias; significa que vamos ter que aguentar os Viper até 2045. Resta saber se as células aguentam 50 anos, mas se os dos americas aguentam os nossos também aguentarão. Como os Viper tugas são mais ou menos contemporâneos das fragatas, pode ser que algum iluminado decida também esticar por mais 10 anos a vida das mesmas  :toto:

Lockheed meets  goal of delivering 45 F-35 jets in 2015 - Pentagon  

http://reuters.com/article/idUSKBN0U41XV20151221

Lockheed-Martin met its goal of delivering 45 F-35 fighter jets to the US government and key allies in 2015, a 25 per cent increase from 2014 that brought the number of jets delivered to 154, the Pentagon said on Monday. 

Lockheed is on track to receive most associated performance fees, and marked a milestone for the  $391 billion F-35 project, the Pentagon's largest arms program, as it prepared for a large production increase in coming years.  (...)
