Source: Singapore chooses Italy's M-346 Trainer Jet





SEOUL - Singapore's government has selected Italy's Alenia Aermacchi, maker of the M-346 aircraft, as the preferred bidder in its trainer jet contest, industry sources here said July 1.

As a result, South Korea's T-50 Golden Eagle aircraft suffered a second defeat, following a loss last year in a trainer jet competition in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

The UAE selected the M-346 over the T-50, jointly built by Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI) and Lockheed Martin of the United States, as the preferred bidder for a $1.3 billion deal to acquire 48 trainer jets. The Italian company has failed to finalize an agreement with the UAE, reportedly over a side deal concerning the joint development of UAVs.
"I've been told that the T-50 suffered another defeat apparently, as the M-346 has been picked up as the preferred bidder for the trainer jet contest in Singapore," an industry source said, asking not to be named. "The Singapore government has yet to make public the result of its decision on the successful bidder, and is expected to announce it soon."
Neither KAI nor South Korea's Defense Acquisition Program Administration (DAPA), responsible for T-50 overseas sales, confirmed the information.
"I understand the announcement on the final bidder will be made as early as in mid-July, or it could be delayed to September or October," a DAPA spokesman said. "But I don't know what decision the Singapore government has made."
KAI officials were not available for comment, while an Aermacchi spokesman said he had no information to provide on the matter.
Once confirmed, however, the defeat in the Singapore competition will likely deal a serious blow to KAI's potential trainer jet tenders in other nations, such as Poland, the United States and Iraq, observers here say.
KAI also hoped to reopen talks with the UAE over the sale of T-50s by capitalizing on the Gulf state's stalled talks with Aermacchi, and on a landmark $20 billion deal with South Korea involving nuclear reactors.
Moves to privatize KAI also likely will gain strength. The administration of South Korean President Lee Myung-bak began an effort last year to privatize state assets, including its stake in KAI.
The state-owned Korea Development Bank (KDB) announced in April 2009 that it would sell its 30.5 percent stake in KAI, which has three other major local shareholders - Samsung Techwin, Doosan Infracore and Hyundai Motors, each with a 20.54 percent stake.
But KDB temporarily withdrew from its decision in the face of opposition from KAI's labor union, which argued that the privatization effort could hurt overseas sales of the T-50.
Currently, the Korea Finance Corp. (KoFC), which was spun off from KDB, holds the government's stake in KAI.
Earlier this year, a KoFC official said, "If KAI fails to sell the T-50 to Singapore, discussions of the KAI privatization would certainly be resurfaced. Our position will be re-established after that."
The T-50 and M-346 are considered to be among the best advanced trainer jets on the global market. Although they have been purchased by their respective home customers, the air forces of Italy and South Korea, the UAE contest was their first duel in an international market, with the M-346 appearing to claim victory.
The difference between the UAE and Singapore evaluations is that Singapore will contract for a total training system, including simulators and classroom trainers. The UAE is choosing an aircraft and will then hold a separate competition for a training system provider.
Aermacchi teamed up with Singapore defense company ST Aero to compete with the KAI-Lockheed team in Singapore. The ground-based training system to support the M-346 would be provided by Boeing's training systems division, which is a third partner on the ST Aero-Aermacchi team.
Both KAI and Aermacchi are seeking to pitch their trainer jets to the U.S. Air Force to replace its aging T-38 trainers. The Italian company, part of the Finmeccanica industrial group, also has teamed with EADS to propose the M-346 for a long-planned pan-European project known as the Advanced European Jet Pilot Training program.
Tom Kington in Italy contributed to this story.

Singaporean Frigate Test Fires Aster Missile
The Singaporean Navy has successfully conducted an Aster surface-to-air missile live firing test during the multilateral Rim of the Pacific (RIMPAC) naval exercise, held from 23 June to 1 Aug 2010 off the coast of Hawaii.
During the test fire, the Aster missile was launched from the Singaporean Navy's Formidable Class frigate RSS Supreme in the operational phase of RIMPAC.
The frigate has carried out various maritime operations including combined anti-submarine and air defence missions with the participating navies.
RSS Supreme is participating in the exercise along with more than 30 ships, five submarines, 150 aircraft and 20,000 personnel from 13 other countries.
The Aster missile, with a range of 30km, is capable of counter attacking a wide range of new-generation threats including high-speed, stealthy and highly manoeuvrable sea skimming anti-ship, cruise and anti-radar missiles.
Features of the Aster missile include a fire control system with multifunction electronic scanning radar and Sylver vertical launchers each containing eight ready-to-fire missiles.

Pilots escape injury as Singaporean Apache makes emergency landing

Both crew members of a Republic of Singapore Air Force Boeing AH-64D Apache Longbow attack helicopter escaped injury when they were forced to make an emergency landing on 30 September.
“The helicopter was on a routine maintenance flight when it encountered engine problems. As an emergency drill, the pilots chose an open field away from buildings and populated areas to make an emergency landing,” the defence ministry says.
Both pilots were unhurt in the incident, but the Apache’s tail section separated from the fuselage after impacting the ground. It came to rest some distance away from the aircraft, which remained upright.
The defence ministry says an air force response team was sent to the site to recover the aircraft, which was not equipped with a mast-mounted Longbow fire control radar. It has now been returned to Sembawang air base.
Singapore’s air force had an active fleet of 20 AH-64Ds prior to the accident. These were delivered between 2002 and 2006, as recorded in Flightglobal’s HeliCAS database. The aircraft are powered by General Electric T700-701C engines.
The defence ministry subsequently ordered a suspension of training activities with its remaining Apaches pending the findings of an investigation. It has also temporarily stopped training flights with the navy's six Sikorsky S-70B Seahawks, which use GE T700-401C engines.

Singapore – F-16 Pilot Training


October 6, 2010 by Marcel van Leeuwen · Leave a Comment

WASHINGTON, October 4, 2010 – The Defense Security Cooperation Agency notified Congress today of a possible Foreign Military Sale to the Government of Singapore of defined order training for a three-year pilot training program at the Tucson Air National Guard Base in Arizona. Training includes F-16 Basic, Transition, Conversion/International Advanced Weapons, and Instructor Pilot Upgrade courses.
The Government of Singapore has requested a possible sale of defined order training for a three-year pilot training program that specifies the number and type of pilot training slots with an option to extend at the Tucson Air National Guard Base in Arizona. Training includes F-16 Basic, Transition, Conversion/International Advanced Weapons, and Instructor Pilot Upgrade courses. Also included are related program requirements necessary to sustain a long-term CONUS training program. The estimated cost is $150 million.
This proposed sale will contribute to the foreign policy and national security of the United States by helping to improve the security of a friendly country that has been, and continues to be, an important force for economic progress in Southeast Asia. This proposed sale will augment the Republic of Singapore’s self-defense capability and ensure interoperability with U.S. forces for coalition operations.
Singapore needs this training to develop mission-ready and experienced pilots to support its current and future F-16 aircraft inventory. The well-established pilot proficiency training program at Tucson ANGB will continue professional interaction and enhance operational interoperability with U.S. forces.
The proposed sale of this equipment and support will not alter the basic military balance in the region.
There is no prime contractor involved in this proposed sale. There are no known offset agreements proposed in connection with this potential sale.
Implementation of this proposed sale will not require the assignment of any additional U.S. Government and contractor representatives to Singapore.
There will be no adverse impact on U.S. defense readiness as a result of this proposed sale.
This notice of a potential sale is required by law and does not mean the sale has been concluded.

Singaporean Navy Receives Additional Submarine


The Republic of Singapore Navy (RSN) has acquired the RSS Swordsman, the latest in Archer Class submarine technology, from Sweden.
The submarine is the second in the Northern Light project under which two Västergötland Class submarines, previously owned by the Swedish Navy, have been rebuilt, life-extended and modernised.
Singapore Minsiter for Education and Second Minister for Defence Dr Ng Eng Hen said the acquisition of the submarine was crucial to the development of RSN's submarine capabilities.
"The RSN's submarines are part of an integrated warfighting system that includes stealth frigates, naval helicopters, missile corvettes and mine-countermeasure vessels," he said.
"Together with the Challenger Class submarines, RSS Archer and RSS Swordsman will enable the RSN to better fulfil its mission of protecting Singapore's sea lines of communication and territorial integrity," he added.
The training of the crew is coordinated with the Swedish Navy at the naval base in Karlskrona

Singapore Stands Up S-70B Naval Helicopter Squadron

With the return of all six Sikorsky S-70B naval helicopters to Singapore in October 2010, the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) reached a significant milestone in its transformation into a 3rd Generation fighting force.

At a ceremony marking the inauguration of the naval helicopters into 123 Squadron (SQN) on 18 Jan, Minister for Education and Second Minister for Defence Dr Ng Eng Hen expressed confidence in the squadron's ability to "build on its tradition of cross-service integration as it embarks on a new chapter of air-sea operations."

Set up in 1979, 123 SQN initially operated as a basic training wing for the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF). In 1992, the squadron was restructured to support the Singapore Army, with the introduction of Singapore's first dedicated armed helicopter, the AS550 Fennec (which has been retired from service).

With the addition of the S-70B naval helicopter, the squadron will continue to provide cross-Service interoperability between the RSAF and the Republic of Singapore Navy (RSN).

"The naval helicopter and frigate are able to fight together as an integrated system," said Senior Lieutenant Colonel (SLTC) Jonathan Tan, Commanding Officer of 123 SQN. "In a way, the helicopter serves as the extended arm of the ship it is embarked on, allowing personnel to act faster, see further and make more decisive operational decisions."

As a helicopter pilot himself, SLTC Tan described naval-based operations as "challenging" but not without their own sense of satisfaction. "Operating on board a ship presents its own set of challenges. The ship is in constant motion and that makes it harder to land the aircraft," he explained.

The integration of the RSN's frigates with the naval helicopters enables the frigates to undertake anti-surface and anti-submarine missions at much longer ranges. Each frigate's sophisticated command and communications suite allows it to network with a wide array of SAF assets.

The RSN's S-70B naval helicopters carry a dipping sonar system which can be lowered below sea surface to detect submarines which may be lurking in the vicinity. It also has the capability to fire torpedoes.

Each helicopter is operated by two pilots from the RSAF, and a Tactical Coordination Officer (TACCO) and a Sensor Supervisor (SENSUP) from the RSN. Cross-service integration between the crew is thus crucial to the success of their missions.

"It's natural for SAF people to gel together to achieve their missions," said Major (MAJ) Eng Cheng Heng, who serves as a TACCO in 123 SQN.

Due to differences in the way individual Services communicate with each other, there were some teething problems when the RSAF and RSN first got together to operate the S-70B naval helicopters. "We are moving closer towards a common operating language and have developed procedures to further streamline operations," said MAJ Eng.

"It was an eye-opening experience to be able to see more of how the RSAF works since the SAF is moving towards integrated operations," he added of his experience in the United States (US).

Personnel from the squadron trained intensively with the US Navy from March to September 2010, as part of the Peace Triton detachment stationed in San Diego.

First Warrant Officer (1WO) Permjit Singh, Chief Aircrew Specialist in 123 SQN spoke highly of his RSN counterparts' hospitality. "Whenever we came on board during training, the ship crew would reduce its frequency of piping calls in order not to disturb our rest," he said. Akin to public address systems in the civilian world, piping systems on board warships are used to broadcast meal times, page for certain personnel, amongst other operational messages.
