SINGAPOUR : Airbus compte deux prospects pour l'Eurofighter en Asie-Pacifique 

Le 13/02/2014 à 12:09  | Par Guillaume Steuer  




Interrogé lors d'une conférence de presse donnée hier par Airbus Defence & Space au salon de Singapour, Christian Scherer, vice-président exécutif en charge du marketing et des ventes, a indiqué que sa société était en discussions avec "deux forces aériennes" de la zone Asie-Pacifique au sujet de l'Eurofighter. "Nous pensons avoir une belle fenêtre d'opportunité pour l'exportation de cet appareil, avant l'apparition sur le marché d'avions de combat totalement furtifs", a ajouté le dirigeant.

Ce dernier n'a pas souhaité préciser l'identité des nations actuellement courtisées. La Malaisie est actuellement engagée dans l'évaluation de plusieurs solutions pour remplacer ses MiG-29N et F/A-18D, tandis que l'Indonésie aurait récemment envoyé une demande d'informations à plusieurs constructeurs d'avions de combat, dont Eurofighter. Sur ces deux marchés, le biréacteur européen sera opposé au Rafale de Dassault Aviation et à des concurrents américains et russes.

"L'Eurofighter est actuellement l'avion de combat le plus performant et le plus polyvalent sur le marché", a affirmé Christian Scherer. L'appareil européen affiche pourtant dans sa configuration actuelle des performances inférieures au Rafale dans plusieurs domaines, tels que le bombardement, la frappe longue portée, la reconnaissance - autant de capacités démontrées en opérations (Afghanistan, Libye, Mali) par le Rafale, mais pas par son cousin européen.

La récente réorganisation d'Airbus Defence & Space a concentré en une seule unité les parts allemande (ex-Cassidian) et espagnole (ex-Airbus Military) du consortium Eurofighter. Selon Christian Scherer, ce rebranding amène une "simplification" des échanges avec les clients sur les campagnes export de l'avion de combat européen.

BAE advances Captor-E radar integration on Typhoon


BAE Systems has performed the first test flight of a Eurofighter Typhoon fitted with a mass model replicating the type’s future active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar.

Conducted at the company’s Warton site in Lancashire in late February using instrumented production aircraft 5 (IPA5), the activity comes several months before the scheduled first flight of the aircraft with the Captor-E sensor. This is expected to occur in the third quarter of this year, BAE says.

Developed by the Euroradar consortium, the AESA array has more than 1,000 individual transmit/receive modules. Tranche 3 Typhoons being manufactured for Germany, Italy, Spain and the UK will be delivered with a new radar frame and the associated power and cooling enhancements required to use the new system. Approval for a radar production order is anticipated later this year.



BAE Systems

The four-aircraft test fleet at Warton will also perform two live firings with the MBDA Meteor beyond-visual-range air-to-air missile by mid-year using IPA1. The latter of these will be the first launch conducted from a Typhoon flying at supersonic speed, says Andy Pegg, BAE’s fight test manager for the type. The full integration programme will include eight firings, the last of which should take place during 2016.

Adding the AESA radar and Meteor weapon are among a range of enhancements planned for the Eurofighter programme, with their integration also expected to be potentially key factors in securing additional future export sales.

Typhoon starts windtunnel tests with conformal fuel tanks

The Eurofighter Typhoon’s proposed conformal fuel tank (CFT) configuration has entered windtunnel testing in the UK, partner company BAE Systems has revealed.

BAE says it is “currently assessing the aerodynamic characteristics of carrying two fuselage-mounted conformal fuel tanks on the Typhoon aircraft”, using a high-speed windtunnel at its Warton site in Lancashire. “This testing will help to accelerate the clearance process for such tanks to be integrated on to Typhoon, offering increased range and flexibility to the aircraft,” the company adds.

A new configuration item for the Tranche 3 production standard Typhoon, the conformal structures would free up under-wing pylons frequently used to carry external fuel tanks, but recently employed in testing to carry the MBDA Storm Shadow and Taurus Systems KEPD 350 cruise missiles (below). All Tranche 3 aircraft are being manufactured with the required structural and fuel system modifications to carry the CFTs.

The four-nation Eurofighter consortium exhibited a full-size model of the Typhoon with the conformal tanks fitted at the Dubai air show last November, with the adaptation having been on offer to the United Arab Emirates, which subsequently halted talks linked to a potential Typhoon acquisition

British Engineers test new configuration of fighter jets in high speed wind tunnel




A geometrically perfect 1/12th scale model of a Typhoon fighter jet, equipped with conformal fuel tanks, is undergoing high-speed wind tunnel testing at our facility in Warton, Lancashire.

Our engineers, are using high speed wind tunnels to assess the aerodynamic characteristics of Typhoon Tranche 3 aircraft when equipped with two fuselage-mounted conformal fuel tanks. The Tranche 3 is the third and latest version of the jet.

The testing uses a geometrically perfect 1/12th scale model of the aircraft, made from light alloy and hardwood, with the new fuel tanks created to scale using 3D printing – or Additive Layer Manufacturing (ALM) – techniques.

Conformal fuel tanks could increase the future operational range and flexibility of the Typhoon aircraft due to increased fuel capacity.

Vers la fin du programme Eurofighter ?


Airbus Group et ses partenaires arrêteront de construire l'Eurofighter en 2018 s'ils n'engrangent pas de nouvelles commandes à l'export pour l'avion de combat, a mis en garde, lundi 19 mai, le patron de la division défense d'Airbus, Bernhard Gerwert.

« Certaines décisions finales doivent encore être prises, mais notre hypothèse est qu'il n'y aura pas de phase 3B », a-t-il déclaré. Le vocable « 3B » désigne la dernière tranche de commandes d'Eurofighter prévue lors du lancement de ce programme multinational dans les années 1990 par l'Allemagne, le Royaume-Uni, l'Espagne et l'Italie.

« NOUS DEMANDONS DES DÉDOMMAGEMENTS »

L'Eurofighter est construit par Airbus avec le britannique BAE Systems et l'italien Finmeccanica. L'Allemagne a d'ores et déjà fait marche arrière sur ses dernières commandes. « Nous demandons des dédommagements à nos clients », a déclaré Bernhard Gerwert lundi, sans plus de détails. Le chiffre de 900 millions d'euros avait circulé en début d'année à propos de l'indemnisation réclamée à Berlin.

Des négociations sont aussi en cours pour vendre l'Eurofighter hors d'Europe, par exemple au Qatar, en Arabie saoudite ou encore au Koweït, et en Malaisie. Mais sur tous ces marchés « nous faisons face à une concurrence ardue », observe le patron de la division défense d'Airbus

Eurofighter announces enhancements for Typhoon

Eurofighter, maker of the Typhoon jet fighter, says it has come up with a capability enhancement package that improves switching between air-to-air and air-to-ground weapon modes.



BERLIN, May 21 (UPI) --Eurofighter Jagdflugzeug GmbH has announced a capability enhancement package for its Typhoon combat plane, flown or ordered by seven countries.

The package was announced Wednesday at the 2014 ILA Berlin Air Show by Paul Smith, a Eurofighter capability manager and former British Royal Air Force pilot.

"What we are showcasing at ILA here in Germany represents a paradigm shift in the capability of the Eurofighter Typhoon as a series of major enhancements are introduced to our customers," he said.

The first phase enhancement package enhances the fighter's air-to-air and air-to-ground weapons capabilities for seamless switching between the two operational modes. It also improves human-machine interface, he said.

The enhancements incorporate lessons-learned during the aircraft's operations during NATO's aircraft deployment over Libya to help depose the regime of Muammar Gaddafi.

"This package also paves the way for the Eurofighter to deploy deep strike stand-off weapons that can target high-value, highly protected surface targets," Smith said. "We are already deep into the integration and flight test of the Storm Shadow stand-off weapon.

"Storm Shadow has a proven combat record of penetrating the most highly defended target areas. The stealth is in the weapon; minimizing the risk to pilot and aircraft."

Storm Shadow is an air-launched cruise missile.

The company is also integrating the air-to-air missile, BVRAAM.

Other enhancements include a suite of capability upgrades for Typhoon's defensive aids sub-system and interoperability improvements.

Eurofighter Studying Missiles To Give Typhoon Maritime Attack Capability

SEVILLA, SPAIN — Eurofighter is looking at giving the Typhoon a maritime attack capability and is investigating at least three missiles to meet potential requirements for export, according to the executive leading Airbus Defence and Space combat aircraft sales effort.

At least two of Typhoon’s current export targets are requesting a maritime attack capability. Peter Maute, the head of combat aircraft sales at Airbus Defence, said the Boeing Harpoon and MBDA’s Marte and Sea Brimstone missiles were being considered as possibilities for the European multi-role combat jet.

Talking during a briefing to reporters at the Airbus military aircraft factory in Sevilla, Spain, Maute said that work on the weapons was done by Eurofighter in its development simulator but that full integration would have to await a customer.

Qatar and Malaysia are known to have stipulated a maritime-strike capability for their next purchase of combat jets.

A decision on a new fighter purchase could be made soon by Qatar. Dassault Aviation’s Rafale, which is capable of carrying the Exocet, and the Boeing F/A-18 Super Hornet provide the main opposition.

Harpoon is already integrated on the Super Hornet.

Malaysia is caught up with budget issues and is more likely to lease jets than purchase them outright. Saab’s Gripen and the Super Hornet are both contenders along with the Typhoon.

The British are already looking at integrating the standard Dual Mode Brimstone missile on to Typhoon.

MBDA has done air and land launches of a maritime version of a weapon it’s see’s as providing a solution to the threat posed by swarms of fast attack craft in the littoral.

Eurofighter: new aerodynamics set for 2014 test flight


Eurofighter will by year-end make is final proof-of-concept test flight on an aerodynamic modification kit that promises to improve the combat aircraft’s subsonic turn rate by 15%.

Adding leading edge root extensions and extended trailing edge flaps, and reshaping the side-of-cockpit ILS antennae covers as 70° delta strakes should improve the aircraft’s agility for close-quarters combat.

Laurie Hilditch, head of future capabilities at Eurofighter, says the modification kit should give the aircraft the sort of “knife-fight in a phone box” turning capability enjoyed by rivals such as Boeing’s F/A-18E/F or the Lockheed Martin F-16, without sacrificing the transonic and supersonic high-energy agility inherent to its delta wing-canard configuration.

Speaking at Airbus Defence & Space's Manching Eurofighter final assembly and maintenance facility near Munich, Hilditch says the root extensions – or LERX – have already flown and show significant improvement in the subsonic airflow over the wings. And, changing the shape of the ILS antennae cover to resemble a delta strake does the same for the vertical tail fin. The canards, he adds, act as strakes but not throughout their range of movement.


Dan Kemsley/Eurofighter

A further boost to agility could also come from the addition of thrust vectoring, which Hilditch likens to an extra control surface. Eurofighter, he says, has done quite a bit of work on the concept and could move forward with customer interest.

Eurofighter prepares Tranche 3A model for AESA upgrade


Eurofighter’s push to bolster its export sales prospects with an upgrade featuring an active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar has taken a step forward, after diversion from final assembly of a Tranche 3A aircraft, which will be fitted with the new system.

Instrumented production aircraft IPA8 was pulled off the final assembly line at Airbus's Manching site near Munich, Germany on 26 June. The two-seater, which will ultimately be delivered to the German air force, is like other Tranche 3As – in that it has been built with AESA-capable electrical power and liquid cooling systems. The electronically-scanned system requires more power – and generates more heat – than its mechanically-scanned predecessor, the Euroradar Captor-M.

By contrast, single-seat validation aircraft IPA5 is a UK Royal Air Force Tranche 1 version which needs more extensive upgrade work to accommodate the new radar. IPA5 is being modified at BAE Systems's site at Warton in Lancashire. The aircraft, expected to fly with its AESA radar in the third quarter of this year, will be on display at the Farnborough air show.

According to Eurofighter’s head of future capabilities Laurie Hilditch, the two projects complement each other. With IPA8, Eurofighter will demonstrate its ability to modify any of its newest models, which were designed to accommodate the more capable radar. IPA5 will validate the company’s scheme for modification of its earliest models.

Mechanically-scanned systems are well known and generally reliable, but AESA systems are increasingly a customer expectation. By ditching a swinging sensor head for an array of fixed-position transmit/receive modules, AESA offers greater redundancy, continuous rather than sweeping coverage and can give improved detection rates.

The IPA5 project opens the door for Eurofighter partner nation air forces to upgrade their fleets to the latest standard, or sell off some of their older aircraft.

Britain's Hague plugs Eurofighter on visit to India


(Reuters) - Britain's foreign secretary lobbied India on Tuesday to consider buying the Eurofighter, indicating that London has not yet abandoned hope of ousting France's Rafale from a multi-billion-dollar order of multi-role combat jets.

"The UK foreign secretary did indicate the technological advantages of the product that they have available," Syed Akbaruddin, spokesman for India's Ministry of External Affairs, told reporters in response to a question.

Foreign Secretary William Hague and Finance Minister George Osborne held intergovernmental talks with Prime Minister Narendra Modi's new team, on a two-day visit to bolster trade and investment ties with Asia's third-largest economy.

Akbaruddin confirmed that defence issues figured during Tuesday's talks, as well as plans to build a 1,000km (600 mile) industrial corridor between India's financial capital Mumbai and high-tech hub Bangalore.

London is hoping that a stalled deal for India to buy 126 Rafale jets from France's Dassault Aviation may yet collapse, perhaps opening the door to a new deal involving the Eurofighter Typhoon jet that is partly built in Britain.

Osborne said in Mumbai on Monday that MBDA - a missile systems group in which BAE Systems has a stake - had signed a 250 million pound ($420 million) deal to supply defence equipment to the Indian Air Force.

Other shareholders in MBDA are Airbus Group and Italy's Finmeccanica. ($1 = 0.5956 British Pounds) (Reporting by Frank Jack Daniel; Writing by Douglas Busvine; editing by Malini Menon)

Eurofighter Typhoon to get advanced radar contract by year-end

FARNBOROUGH, England: A contract to develop an advanced form of radar for the four nation-backed Eurofighter Typhoon jet should be signed later this year, Eurofighter’s CEO said, raising hopes that the fighter could secure further orders.
Radar issues contributed to the Eurofighter consortium losing out on a $20 billion deal to sell 126 jets to India in 2012 and experts have said that equipping the new radar system to the fighters would help sell more of them.
The consortium of Britain, Germany, Italy and Spain, have funded the initial development of the advanced radar, called E-scan, but a new contract is needed to ready the product so it can start to be fitted onto the fighter jets.
“We are extremely confident that this is going to be more or less before year end,” Eurofighter chief executive Alberto Gutierrez said of the contract at a press conference at the Farnborough Airshow.
The contract would take the E-Scan radar to full development, Gutierrez said, adding that it would precede further contracts from the four nations to buy the product.
Typhoon, which is produced by BAE Systems, Airbus and Finmeccanica, has to date received orders from Saudi Arabia and Oman but suffered a major blow last year when UAE quit talks over a possible 6 billion pound order.
With its extended range, faster tracking and multiple targeting, the new radar could be on jets in frontline use within two years.
E-scan radar has been developed by the Euroradar group, on which Selex, the defense electronics unit of Italy’s Finmeccanica, is a major contractor.
Britain has already signalled its intention to back the project, awarding BAE Systems a 72 million pound ($123 million) contract to test and derisk the E-scan radar development for its fleet of Typhoons.
The contract formed part of the 300 million pounds set aside by the UK government to fund existing programs from its 1.1 billion investment in defense announced on Monday.
Compared with M-scan, or mechanically scanning radars that have to physically move to detect objects, E-scan or electronically scanning radars are fixed and tend to operate much faster as they can move their beams electronically.

FARNBOROUGH: RAF Typhoons to get Storm Shadow
À partir de 2016


Citation :
RAF Typhoons will from mid-2016 be armed with MBDA’s long-range bunker-busting Storm Shadow cruise missile, following a contract signing tomorrow to integrate the weapon with the service's fleet.

Defence minister Philip Dunne was at the Eurofighter pavilion on Wednesday to announce the deal. Storm Shadow, which proved effective in Libya and Iraq, is already carried by the Panavia Tornado and Dassault Rafale combat types.

According to Eurofighter capability manager Paul Smith, RAF and Italian air force Typhoons have already flown with the weapon on board, so integration is well underway. About a year of test flights are to come – including drop tests - before the stand-off missile can be delivered to the RAF.

Along with the weapons upgrade, Typhoons will also get the new Captor-E electronically scanning radar. RAF aircraft IPA5, on display at Farnborough, has been modified with the unit and will commence flight testing next week after its return to BAE Systems's site in Warton.

Storm Shadow does not rely on Captor-E, but the improved radar will dramatically improve aircraft survivability in hostile territory by increasing situational awareness, says Smith, who flew Typhoons for the RAF until his recent retirement.

 Armement : un défaut de fabrication plombe l'Eurofighter en Allemagne

Le ministère allemand de la Défense a annoncé la découverte d'un défaut de fabrication sur les avions de combat Eurofighter, et décidé de ne plus réceptionner les appareils commandés.  


Décidément la ministre de la Défense allemande Ursula von der Leyen a beaucoup de pain sur la planche actuellement. Loi des séries ? Après avoir annoncé lundi être incapable de tenir ses engagements militaires en Irak, le ministère allemand de la Défense a annoncé mardi soir la découverte d'un défaut de fabrication sur les avions de combat Eurofighter, et décidé de ne plus réceptionner les appareils commandés. Berlin a également décidé de réduire de moitié le temps de vol annuel de ses appareils Eurofighter, de 3.000 à 1.500 heures de vol par an selon un communiqué.

Le défaut découvert concerne la partie postérieure de la carlingue, a précisé le ministère dans un communiqué. Selon le site internet "Spiegel Online", il peut entrainer une instabilité de l'avion. Berlin a, "jusqu'à l'éclaircissement des aspects commerciaux", décidé de ne plus réceptionner les Eurofighter commandés. Une tuile qui arrive à un mauvais moment puisque l'Eurofighter, construit par Airbus Group, le britannique BAE Systems et l'italien Finmeccanica, s'est envolé vers la Malaisie pour faire une démonstration dans le cadre d'une campagne commerciale en cours après avoir fait un stop en Inde où il a tenté d'impressionner New Delhi, en discussions exclusives avec Dassault Aviation.

Série de difficultés pour l'armée allemande

L'armée allemande est actuellement confrontée à une série de difficultés sur fond de restrictions budgétaires. Selon un tableau publié par l'hebdomadaire "Spiegel", citant des sources militaires, seuls 41 hélicoptères sur un total de 190 en service dans l'armée allemande sont opérationnels. Parmi les avions de combat Eurofighter et Tornado, seuls 80 appareils seraient effectivement mobilisables sur un total de 239. L'Allemagne avait d'ores et déjà fait marche arrière sur ses dernières commandes d'Eurofighter.

Le programme Eurofighter coûtera environ 60 milliards d'euros au gouvernement allemand, soit le double de ce qui avait été prévu, avait estimé en avril dernier la Cour fédérale des comptes dans un rapport. Le gonflement du coût total du programme s'explique notamment par la hausse des coûts de maintenance des appareils, avait expliqué la Cour des comptes allemande. Le budget de 11,8 milliards d'euros calculé en 1997 par le ministère allemand de la Défense pour l'achat de 180 appareils, suffirait à en acquérir seulement 140.

Des trous dans le fuselage des Eurofighter autrichiens  

  Des vérifications de routine sur l'avion de combat européen ont révélé en Autriche un problème sur une pièce du fuselage qui réduit des deux tiers la durée de vie de ce composant.  

Après l'Allemagne, l'Autriche. Décidément pour l'Eurofighter, la mauvaise passe se poursuit. Des vérifications de routine ont révélé un problème sur une pièce du fuselage de l'Eurofighter qui réduit des deux tiers la durée de vie de ce composant, ont fait savoir mercredi les forces armées autrichiennes. Le fuselage de l'avion de combat est fabriqué par Premium Aerotec, une filiale allemande d'Airbus Group. Le problème a été signalé en août et doit être résolu par des modifications en cours, ajoutent-elles sans identifier le fabricant du composant.

"La sécurité en vol de l'Eurofighter n'est pas affectée actuellement", a affirmé en revanche  l'armée autrichienne, qui compte 15 avions de combat de ce type. Le problème est situé à l'arrière du fuselage et ramène la durée de vie du composant concerné de 6.000 à 2.000 heures de vol. A Berlin, le ministère de la Défense a confirmé le problème en le qualifiant d'"embêtant" mais en soulignant qu'il n'affectait pas les capacités immédiates des forces aériennes allemandes. Le porte-parole du ministère, Ingo Gerhartz, a précisé que BAE Systems avait identifié des trous de perçage "qui ne correspondent pas aux critères de conception" et effectuait des tests pour en mesurer l'impact.

Soupçons de pots-de-vin pour le contrat Eurofighter

Depuis 2012, la justice allemande et autrichienne soupçonne le constructeur aéronautique européen Airbus Group (alors EADS) d'avoir versé au moins 70 millions d'euros de pots-de-vin dans la vente d'avions de combat Eurofighter à l'Autriche. Les soupçons de corruption autour de ce contrat d'armement, conclu en 2003, ont rythmé la vie politique autrichienne au cours des dernières années.

La commande pour deux milliards d'euros de 18 Eurofighter Typhoon, fabriqués par le consortium Eurofighter, formé par Airbus Group, le britannique BAE Systems et l'italien Finmeccanica, avait été réduite en 2007 à 15 appareils sous l'effet du scandale, plusieurs partis demandant l'annulation pure et simple du contrat.

BAE Systems upgrades Typhoon to boost fighter jet's abilities to attack targets both in the air and on the ground



Defence giant BAE Systems has upgraded a clutch of the RAF’s Eurofighter Typhoon fighter jets to boost the aircraft’s abilities to attack enemy targets both in the air and on the ground.

The supersonic Typhoon was originally designed as a Cold War-era fighter to take on fleets of enemy aircraft, like a modern day equivalent of the Second World War’s iconic Spitfire. But modern operations in warzones like Afghanistan and Iraq have proved the need for the Eurofighter to perform as a bomber and engage ground targets as well – a role some defence analysts had warned the machine was incapable of fulfilling in its original guise.

The upgrade to 15 aircraft already in service – including enhanced computer power, beefed-up weapons systems and sensors – means RAF pilots can simultaneously attack six different targets in a single swoop overhead using bombs and missiles guided by GPS satellites.

Typhoon pilots first tasted combat in the skies over Libya in support of the United Nations, while the Cold War-era Tornado ground attack jet with its advanced sensors is currently flying missions from RAF Akrotiri in Cyprus to attack Islamic State fighters in Iraq.

Typhoon test pilot Anthony Gregory said: ‘This aircraft has huge growth potential. Its fundamental physical structure, powerful engines and advanced electronics mean its performance is world beating.’

Eurofighter Eyes Typhoon Sale, Assembly in Indonesia

LONDON — Eurofighter is holding out the possibility of Indonesia assembling the Typhoon if the Southeast Asian nation acquires the fighter in an anticipated upcoming competition.

The four-nation consortium is beating the drum for a possible Typhoon sale on its first official appearance at the Indo Defence show, which opens in the capital Jakarta Wednesday.

In a statement ahead of the show opening, Alberto Gutierrez, Eurofighter’s CEO, said the consortium is ready to work as needed with the Indonesian aerospace industry on developing indigenous capability but in the shorter term the company is willing to discuss ways in which intermediate requirements are met.

Gutierrez said there had “already been a number of useful meetings” between interested parties but it was “too early” to go into detail.

A spokesman for Eurofighter said final assembly of Typhoon jets by the Indonesian aerospace industry was one longer term possibility in any deal between the two sides.

The Eurofighter consortium of Airbus Defence and Space, Alenia Aermacchi and BAE Systems produces Typhoons for the core partners Britain, Germany, Italy and Spain, and has secured export orders in Austria, Oman and Saudi Arabia.

Eurofighter and other fighter builders responded to a request for information issued by the Indonesian government in January for a fighter to replace the F-5s currently in service with the Air Force.

Saab with the Gripen also responded.

Indonesia operates a mix of F-5s, F-16s, Su-27s, Su-30s and Hawk jets.

Sweden’s Saab issued a statement in September saying that with Jakarta spending about 1 percent of its gross domestic product on defense, it “would be looking at an aircraft that is affordable, superior and have low operational cost. All these make the Gripen an ideal solution for Indonesia.”

One industry source said nothing much has happened since the RFIs were returned.

“I’m not even taking a breath let alone holding it waiting for the Indonesians to progress this requirement; it could take four or five years,” he said, in response to a question about a possible purchase timeline.

Doug Barrie, the senior air analyst at the International Institute of Strategic Studies think tank in London, expressed a similar view.

“Indonesia has admirable ambitions to modernize its Air Force but whether they can sustain that interest to a point where they can be realized is a considerable question.”

Across the Straits of Malacca, Indonesia’s neighbour, Malaysia, is also looking to update its fighter fleet on a tight budget and has turned to possible leasing of jets to meet medium-term requirements.

Eurofighter, Saab, Boeing and possibly others have all been encouraged to submit lease proposals to the Malaysians in the last 12 months.

Saab sealed a $5.4 billion deal with Brazil in late October to supply 36 Gripen NG fighters and is conducting discussions for lease of an earlier version of the jet as an interim capability upgrade.

The company has already leased Gripen jets to other customers.

Indonesia is promising to raise defense spending to modernize the military and despite tough overall budget conditions has recently purchased armored vehicles, warships, air defense missiles and other equipment, in part as a response to increasing equipment acquisitions by other nations in the region. ■

UPDATE 1-Eurofighter Typhoon jet to get new 1 bln euro radar


Nov 19 (Reuters) - Britain, Germany, Italy and Spain have through their Eurofighter project signed a 1 billion euro ($1.3 billion) contract to provide their jointly backed Typhoon jet with a new sort of radar, in an effort to secure new orders.

The fighter is produced by Eurofighter partner companies BAE Systems, Airbus and Finmeccanica, and BAE said it signed a contract worth 365 million pounds ($572 million) to integrate the new radar onto the jets.

Under the deal signed in Edinburgh, Scotland, on Wednesday the Typhoon jet will in future be available with the "Captor E-Scan radar".

The four countries, which had already funded the initial development of the advanced radar, believe that the new radar will help the fighter jet secure new orders from other countries.

"This will give Eurofighter Typhoon one of the most advanced radar systems in the world providing a wider field of regard than any other combat aircraft. Other benefits include increased detection and tracking ranges, advanced air-to-surface capability and enhanced electronic protection measures," BAE said in a statement.

Eurofighter lost out on a $20 billion deal to sell 126 jets to India in 2012. While Saudi Arabia and Oman have ordered Typhoons, Eurofighter suffered a major blow last year when United Arab Emirates quit talks over a possible 6 billion pound order.

Royal Bank of Canada analysts said a new radar for Typhoon would "close a performance gap against most other western-made fighter jets".

Eurofighter's chief executive Alberto Gutierrez said the addition of E-Scan to the jets represented a "pivotal moment" for the project, providing a weapons system which is "unmatched".

"This milestone confirms the commitment of the four nations to provide the Eurofighter Typhoon with the best capabilities to seize current and emerging opportunities in the export market," the Eurofighter Typhoon statement said.

E-scan radar has an extended range, faster tracking and multiple targeting. It has been developed by the Euroradar group, on which Selex, the defence electronics unit of Italy's Finmeccanica, is a major contractor.

BAE said trials of the jet with the new radar had already started.

"From the outset, the aircraft was built with capability enhancement in mind and this step is proof that we are developing Typhoon to keep it relevant for today and for the future," BAE Systems managing director of combat air Martin Taylor said in a statement.

Typhoon radar deal to revive European dogfight

Last week was a pretty good one for two of Europe’s remaining fighter manufacturers, as the continent’s four Eurofighter nations at last committed real money to provide the Typhoon with a new-generation radar, and as Saab received strong and long-term backing from new customer Brazil.

The wait to get formal approval for the Eurofighter’s Captor-E active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar from Germany, Italy, Spain and the UK has been a long one, and has without question harmed the type’s export prospects over the last few years – remember its near-miss with the United Arab Emirates, for example. But the industry’s faith in having self-funded the work to date has been rewarded, with a €1 billion ($1.3 billion) deal signed with the Euroradar consortium to complete development and integration of the “E-scan” sensor.

There remains a problem here, however. Welcome as the new development is, it still stops short of any of the Eurofighter nations wholly committing themselves to fitting the Captor-E to any of their aircraft. The UK has a clear roadmap and aspiration to do so, but as the desire of its cash-strapped and less combat-minded partners might be less immediate, it is hedging its bets by also backing a national-specific alternative. Seen positively, this means potential future customers could have a choice of two AESA systems for their combat aircraft.

With production for its core nations now in its final Tranche 3A phase, Eurofighter needs to finalise new orders, if its lines with Airbus Defence & Space, Alenia Aermacchi and BAE Systems are to continue building Typhoons beyond late this decade. Sales officials and chief executive Alberto Gutierrez have talked a good game for the last couple of years about the addition of new capabilities, and the Captor-E deal adds much-needed and overdue substance to their claims.

Things are looking good for Saab too, with a senior Brazilian air force official having revealed long-term plans for the service to build on its initial, 36-aircraft buy with additional batches that should treble this fleet strength to 108 jets.

The Swedish company’s F-X2 selection and recent $5.8 billion contract with the Latin American nation could prompt a fresh wave of buyers for the E/F-model fighter, and has helped the manufacturer to forget its disappointment in Switzerland earlier this year.

Now, if Dassault can succeed in getting its Rafale deal with India on contract, the European dogfight can really continue for a few more battles yet.

Paveway IV qualifiée sur Eurofighter !  




Le plus ancien escadron le n°1 basé à Lossiemouth de la Royal Air Force a réalisé une première avec la qualification de tir d’une bombe Paveway IV à partir d’un avion de combat Eurofighter «Typhoon II».

La qualification de la bombe Paveway IV depuis un avion de combat Airbus Group Eurofighter  «Typhoon II» a été réalisé avec succès depuis la zone d'entraînement de

Cape Wrath. L’Eurofighter utilisé fait partie des aéronefs modernisés dans le cadre du programme P1E/B.

La phase P1E/B de modernisation offre des capacités plus larges, avec notamment une réelle compétence de type multi-rôle. Ce paquet de modernisation fait suite aux opérations menées en Libye, et va permettre de combler les lacunes actuelles du standard en service au sein de la RAF.  Les mises à niveau des avions incluent l'amélioration de la puissance de calcul, du système d'armes et de l'intégration de celles-ci et l'amélioration des capteurs.

Une fois installées, ces améliorations permettent au «Typhoon II» d’opérer simultanément en mode air-air et air-sol. Soit une réelle capacité multi-rôle, qui faisait défaut jusqu’ici. De plus, le paquet améliorations P1E/B offre beaucoup plus de souplesse dans la planification de la mission. Il permet à un seul pilote, dans un seul appareil de mener des attaques simultanément sur six cibles différentes en une seule passe

La Paveway IV :



La bombe Raytheon Paveway IV dispose d’un système de navigation inertielle (INS) et peut être également guidée par GPS. Cette bombe issue de la Paveway Mk82 est dotée d’un kit de guidage basé sur la Paveway II.
