First Two New RAAF Roulettes Pilatus PC-21s Arrive


25 Juli 2018

The first two aircraft for the Royal Australian Air Force’s (RAAF) acrobatic display team have arrived in Australia.

The pair of Pilatus PC-21s, with registration HB-HWS and HB-HWT, landed in Darwin on Saturday July 21 from Kupang in Indonesia, as these photographs from Sid Mitchell showed.

On Sunday, the PC-21s flew from Darwin to Adelaide via Alice Springs, according to flight tracking website FlightAware. The following day, the two aircraft reached RAAF Base East Sale.

The Air Force Roulettes are replacing the Pilatus PC-9/A, which have been flown since 1989, with the PC-21s.

The Australian Defence Force is acquiring 49 PC-21s as well as simulators and training devices under the AIR 5428 Pilot Training System.



Under AIR 5428, the PC-21 will replace both the ageing Pilatus PC-9/A advanced trainer, which has been in service since 1988, and the CT-4B Airtrainer, which is currently used for basic training. The PC-9/A is due to be withdrawn in 2019 after 30 years of service and more than 500,000 flying hours.

AIR 5428 is an integrated system designed to train all future Royal Australian Air Force, Royal Australian Navy and Australian Army pilots. The project spans flight screening through all phases of pilot training from basic flying training at Central Flying School (CFS) at RAAF Base East Sale through to the advanced flying training at 2FTS (No 2 Flying Training School) at RAAF Base Pearce, north of Perth.

Lockheed Martin is the prime contractor with responsibility for delivering AIR 5428 and is providing the ground-based training environment, with Pilatus providing the PC-21 aircraft and Hawker Pacific providing maintenance support.

The first six PC-21s advanced trainers were formally welcomed into service at RAAF Base East Sale in August 2017.

modules to the ADF. Source: Rheinmetall



Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles Australia (RMMVA) has been awarded a contract to deliver more than 1,000 high-mobility logistics trucks and more than 800 modules to the Australian Defence Force (ADF) under the Land 121 Phase 5B programme, which is an extension of the current Land 121 Phase 3B project, Rheinmetall Group announced in a 25 July statement.

Deliveries will start in 2019 and will run to 2024, the company said, adding that it is committed to establishing a “high-quality logistics backbone for the ADF”.

In a separate statement Australian Minister for Defence Industry Christopher Pyne said the country is purchasing 1,044 additional new-generation medium and heavy trucks, 872 modules, and 812 trailers for AUD1.4 billion (USD1.04 billion) to facilitate logistics support and enhance the ADF’s land capabilities. The country is purchasing 1,044 additional new-generation medium and heavy trucks, 872 modules, and 812 trailers for AUD1.4 billion (USD1.04 billion) to facilitate logistics support and enhance the ADF’s land capabilities.

“These modern trucks will be used for a broad range of military contingencies, from resupplying combat operations to supporting the ADF’s assistance to Australian and regional communities after natural disasters such as floods, fires, and cyclones,” said Pyne, adding “We’ve already got more than 1,000 of these trucks in service and they have proved their value, exceeding user expectations in disaster relief, training, and on exercises.”

Pyne also pointed out that this project marks the final government approval for the Land 121 programme designed to replace the ADF’s legacy fleet of ageing vehicles and trailers, many of which are more than 30 years old and becoming increasingly costly and difficult to maintain.

Pyne said that while the trucks are to be manufactured on an existing production line in Austria, Australian industry would play a major role in the project, with RMMVA partnering with a range of Australia-based companies such as Varley in Newcastle, Holmwood Highgate in Brisbane, and ECLIPS in the Australian Capital Territory to supply the modules and trailers.

17 August 2018

Australia has awarded Rheinmetall an order for 211 Boxer wheeled armoured vehicles worth a total of AUD3.3 billion (USD2.4 billion).

The contract was signed on 17 August in Canberra by Australia’s Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull, and the Managing Director of Rheinmetall Defence Australia (RDA), Gary Stewart, the company said in a statement, adding that delivery of the 8×8 combat reconnaissance vehicles (CRVs) will take place between 2019 and 2026.

The move comes after Canberra announced on 14 March that it had selected RDA to meet the Australian Army’s requirement for more than 200 CRVs under Project Land 400 Phase 2. In offering its 8×8 Boxer CRV, RDA beat rival BAE Systems Australia, which had proposed the Armoured Modular Vehicle (AMV35) through a partnership with Finnish company Patria.

The Australian Defence Force (ADF) will introduce several variants of the Boxer with the reconnaissance variant – accounting for 133 of the 211 vehicles – equipped with Rheinmetall’s cutting-edge LANCE turret system and armed with a 30 mm automatic cannon.

Turnbull had said in March that the new CRVs, which will replace the Australian Army’s ageing fleet of 257 Australian light armoured vehicles (ASLAVs), will undertake a range of missions “from regional stability and peacekeeping through to high-threat operations”. He added that the government is investing about AUD235 million to upgrade Australian Army facilities in Adelaide, Queensland, and Victoria where the CRVs will be operated.

As Jane’s previously reported, RDA’s CRV build programme will focus on the development of a proposed Military Vehicle Centre of Excellence (MILVEHCOE) in Brisbane, Queensland, which will be the hub for the production of the majority of the vehicles.

Rheinmetall is expected to construct an initial batch of about 20 Boxer CRVs in Germany, which will be delivered from 2019. The remainder will be built by the MILVEHCOE following training and technology transfers to Australia.

EOS Wins LAND 400 Australian Defence Program

29 Agustus 2018


EOS R400S Mark 2 D-HD remote weapon station (photo : EOS)


Electro Optic Systems, (ASX: EOS), acting through its subsidiary EOS Defence Systems Pty Limited, is pleased to announce that it has been selected as the remote weapon system provider for Phase 2 (Combat Reconnaissance Vehicle) of the Australian Army’s LAND 400 program. EOS tendered the R400S Mark 2 D-HD remote weapon station for this acquisition. This latest R400 variant is commencing full rate production to meet existing contracts in early 2019. It is expected that approximately 80 remote weapon stations for Land 400 Phase 2 would enter an existing manufacturing process from 2021.

Additionally, the LAND 400 Phase 3 tender released today requires that all tenderers ‘include the integration / use of’ the EOS Remote Weapon Station in their responses for the next Phase of the program. Phase 3 seeks to deliver 450 Infantry Fighting Vehicles and 17 Manoeuvre Support Vehicles from 2024/25 onwards.

These two events represent a significant step forward for EOS Defence Systems as the primary RWS provider to the Australian Army. Combined with the existing in-service 230+ EOS remote weapon stations these additional systems will create a larger EOS RWS fleet across multiple vehicles and deliver significant improvements in operational effectiveness and cost of ownership for Australia’s combat forces.

The R400S Mark 2 Direct Drive-Heavy Duty (D-HD) remote weapon station is the latest high precision product from EOS Defence Systems and can mount different weapons up to and including the M230LF lightweight 30mm cannon and anti-tank guided missiles.

The LAND 400 program comprises four phases which are summarised below:
- LAND 400 Phase 1 – Project Definition Study (completed);
- LAND 400 Phase 2 –Combat Reconnaissance Vehicle Capability
- LAND 400 Phase 3 –Mounted Close Combat Capability; and
- LAND 400 Phase 4 – Integrated Training System.

EOS Group CEO, Ben Greene, said: “EOS as an Australian defence industry company is enormously proud of being chosen to provide more weapon stations to this important ADF program. Although the vast majority of EOS revenue is derived from exports, meeting the needs of the Australian Defence Force is of utmost importance. This announcement practically demonstrates the commitment of government to Australian Defence Industry.”

EOS Defence Systems CEO, Grant Sanderson, commented: “This is a very pleasing outcome and great recognition for the EOS Defence Systems workforce who have worked exceptionally hard over the last few years to create these world class products.

This new order combined with the AUD$630+mil other orders received over 2017/18 underwrite production growth for the next five years. Such backlog creates opportunity for EOS to continue to provide the highest quality and best value for money technology in the world to the Australian Defence Force and our global customers.”

Australia Retires Kiowa Helicopter

20 Oktober 2018

The Australian Army Aviation Corps today marked 50 years since formation, celebrating with a ceremonial parade, flypast and a variety of displays at the Army Aviation Training Centre, Oakey, Queensland.

In addition to the flypast in Oakey, simultaneous flypasts were held in Sydney, Townsville and Darwin.

Head of Australian Army Aviation Corps Brigadier Scott Benbow said he was proud to join past and present personnel to mark this important milestone.

“Then and now, the corps is committed to helping the Australian soldier fight, survive and win, and be ready to serve wherever needed,” Brigadier Benbow said.

“From a small corps formed in 1968 flying light fixed-wing aircraft, the Australian Army Aviation Corps has grown to be an advanced, state-of-the-art force.

“Today, the Australian Army Aviation Corps flies a variety of capabilities, including the Tiger armed reconnaissance, Chinook medium lift and Taipan multi role helicopters.”

Today’s celebrations also saw the final flight and retirement of the Army’s Bell 206B-1 Kiowa fleet after almost 47 years of service.

“Kiowa has been Army’s primary training helicopter since 1990, and every pilot, groundcrew member and maintainer who has served since that time has one thing in common – Kiowa,” Brigadier Benbow said.

“The Kiowa fleet has provided stalwart service to the Army since 1971, whether on deployment, in disaster relief operations or as a training helicopter.

“All personnel, past and present, who have operated, maintained and supported the Kiowa can be proud of the part they have played in Army’s history.”

Australia progresses qualification of Tiger helicopters on Canberra class

Key Points
•Australia has completed further trials of the Tiger Armed Reconnaissance Helicopter on board its first Canberra-class vessel
•Aircraft will provide the amphibious assault ship with forward scouting, strike capabilities

The Royal Australian Navy (RAN) has inched closer towards fully qualifying the Tiger Armed Reconnaissance Helicopter (ARH) on board its Canberra-class amphibious assault ships.

The service's aircraft maintenance and flight trials unit (AMAFTU) has been conducting follow-on first-of-class flight trials (FOCFT) with the type from on board HMAS Canberra (L 02) since early September 2018, with the aim of establishing the helicopter as an embarked capability.

The RAN conducted initial trials of the Tiger ARH helicopters in February 2017. Among processes that will be carried out during the latest FOCFT include the establishment of ship-helicopter operating limits (SHOLS) under various environmental conditions, assessment of aviation facilities, and equipment calibration.

To achieve the environmental conditions required to define the operating limits, the FOCFT has been conducted at various locations around the country, including Darwin Harbour, the Arafura Sea, and the Pacific Ocean route between Australia and New Caledonia.

"The geographical variety permitted operations in high temperatures, calm seas, and light winds, along with higher winds and sea states to induce increased pitch and roll," said the service via its official publication, Navy Daily . "This culminated in the validation of proposed wind envelopes in conditions up to Sea State 5 at the end of the trial," it added.

Among Australian Defence Force (ADF) aircraft that can be operated from the amphibious ship include the S-70B-2 Seahawk and S-70 Black Hawk helicopters. In mid-2016, the RAN also conducted deck landings of the US Marine Corps' (USMC's) Sikorsky CH-53E Super Stallion and MV-22 Osprey aircraft on board Canberra as part of the Rim of the Pacific ('RIMPAC') 2016 international naval exercise in waters of Hawaii.

75 BOUGIES POUR L’ARDU
Histoire de célébrer dignement les 75 ans de l’Aircraft Research and Development Unit de la RAAF, une petite formation a été mis en place avec un PC-9A, un F/A-18B et surtout le vénérable Dakota de l’Historical Aircraft Restoration Society, l’un des quelques exemplaires toujours en état de vol en Australie.
Difficile de maintenir la formation le long de la côte entre Nowra et Shoalhaven avec des avions aux performances si différentes. C’est manifestement le Hornet qui est à la peine, cabré pour tenir sa position mais avec de la marge par rapport à sa vitesse de décrochage.
Le choix des machines s’est fait en fonction de leur relation avec l’ARDU, unité tests et développement de la RAAF chargée notamment de la prise en compte des aéronefs et du développement de leurs systèmes. L’ARDU a quatre détachements basés à Amberley, Edinburgh, Richmond et Williamtown.
L’occasion de voir un « Dak » en vol est toujours un plaisir. Cet avion précis, le C-47B-30-DK serial 44-76774 codé A65-94, a été livré à la RAAF le 2 mai 1945, deux semaines après sa sortie d’usine. Il a fait partie des premiers avions engagés au Viet Nam par l’Australie dès 1963, depuis la base de RAAF Butterworth. Il a été retiré du service actif en 1980 après avoir accumulé 14600 heures de vol. Il a été racheté aux enchères par l’HARS en 2000 et a été remis en vol depuis.

First two F-35A Joint Strike fighters arrived in Australia

Dec 10, 2018

The first two F-35A Joint Strike Fighters of the Royal Australian Air Force arrived at Williamtown air base in Newcastle.

According to a news release put out by the Royal Australian Air Force, F-35A Joint Strike Fighter jets A35-009 and A35-010 have arrived at their new home Base Williamtown.

They’re the first F-35As to be based on Australian soil and belong to Royal Australian Air Force’s No. 3 Squadron.

The Minister for Defence, the Hon Christopher Pyne MP, and Minister for Defence Industry, the Hon Steven Ciobo MP, were there to welcome the aircraft and RAAF fighter pilots who flew the final leg in the journey from Luke Air Force Base Arizona.

The Minister for Defence, the Hon Christopher Pyne MP said the Joint Strike Fighter will be a game-changer for the Australian Defence Force.

“This is the most advanced, multi-role stealth fighter in the world. It will deliver next generation capability benefits and provide a major boost to our intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities,” Minister Pyne said.

“The Joint Strike Fighter can get closer to threats undetected; find, engage and jam electronic signals from targets; and share information with other platforms.”

The Government is investing over $17 billion to acquire at least 72 Joint Strike Fighters.

“The Joint Strike Fighter is the largest acquisition in the history of the Royal Australian Air Force, and is a key part of the Government’s $200 billion build up in Defence capability,” Minister Pyne said.

The Lockheed-Martin-built Joint Strike Fighter will be operated by nine partner nations, reaffirming and strengthening Australia’s alliance with the United States and other key international partners including the United Kingdom, Italy, Netherlands, Turkey, Canada, Denmark and Norway.

“In Australia’s immediate region, Japan and South Korea are in the process of procuring the F-35A Joint Strike Fighter, and are closely aligned with Australia’s pursuit of shared strategic, security and economic interests,” Minister Pyne said.
