Exercise puts new helicopters to work




Eight helicopters will be rumbling across the skies of Marlborough and Kaikoura in the air force's largest annual helicopter training exercise.

Exercise Blackbird trains crews in high-altitude and low-level mountain flying techniques and operates out of Dip Flat near St Arnaud. It kicked off on September 22 and runs until October 5.

Three Iroquois, three A109 and two NH90 helicopters, along with 80 air force pilots are taking part in the exercise.

Chief of Air Force Air Vice-Marshal Mike Yardley said the training provided core skills needed for air force missions in New Zealand and overseas.

The air force conducted operations every year with New Zealand Land Search and Rescue and police, he said.

"This training ensures we are prepared for the wide variety of terrain and environments we encounter on operations."

Exercise Blackbird was a great opportunity to train junior crew members in alpine operations, and the mountainous regions in Marlborough and Kaikoura were ideal training grounds, he said.

It is the first year the NH90 helicopter is part of the exercise. The aircraft will be used for high altitude flying operations from next year.

The NH90 has a significantly longer range and endurance, can fly to Australia or the South Pacific Islands, and can lift up to 3.2 tonnes of cargo.

"The NH90 helicopter is a big step up from Iroquois for the air force," Yardley said.

"This helicopter is a key asset in any future disaster relief and search and rescue operations undertaken by the RNZAF."

Helicopter crewman Sergeant Timmy Wilson is with 3 Squadron in Ohakea and is taking part in Exercise Blackbird.

Wilson, who grew up in Palmerston North, said he always knew he wanted to be in the military and loves being in the air force.

"I love the pace of my job, if we're not on a tasking then we're on a search and rescue," he said.

"My job is never boring."

More T-6C trainers head for New Zealand


Beechcraft has transferred its second batch of two T-6C trainers to New Zealand, with the aircraft having left its Wichita production site in Kansas.



Carrying the registrations NZ1404 and NZ1405, the turboprop-powered aircraft made stops in Canada, Greenland and Iceland, before passing through Glasgow, Scotland (above) and making an overnight stop in Stansted, England on 23 September during the long range transfer. The pair follow an initial two trainers which completed the ferry flight to Ohakea air base in late August.

Ordered in January 2014 under an 11-aircraft deal worth NZ$154 million ($119 million), New Zealand’s T-6Cs are due to enter full training use in 2016, according to the nation’s defence force.

The remaining seven aircraft contained within the order will be delivered in 2015, with the type to be flown by the Royal New Zealand Air Force’s 14 Sqn.

The Royal New Zealand Air Force (RNZAF) has received into service the last of eight operational NHIndustries NH90 Tactical Transport Helicopters (TTHs) it ordered in 2006, the defence force announced on 31 October.

The final helicopter arrived at Base Ohakea on North Island on the same day as the announcement, joining the other NH90s being used for search and rescue (SAR), disaster relief, troop transport, and cargo resupply duties.

Having selected the NH90 in March 2005 to replace its ageing fleet of Bell UH-1H 'Huey' helicopters, New Zealand signed a NZD770 million (USD600 million) contract for nine helicopters on 31 July 2006.

Royal New Zealand Navy Accepts First SH-2G(I) Super Seasprite Helicopter from Kaman

Kaman Corp. announced on December 1st that the New Zealand Ministry of Defence (MoD) has accepted the first SH-2G(I) Super Seasprite helicopter for the Royal New Zealand Navy (RNZN). Acceptance occurred at Kaman’s Bloomfield, Connecticut facility.



“We are pleased to have achieved this significant program milestone, which in addition to the acceptance of the first aircraft signifies acceptance of the aircraft design. This accomplishment was the result of significant effort and cooperation between Kaman, the MoD, and the NZDF,” stated Greg Steiner, President Kaman Aerospace Group.

Kaman and the MoD entered into a $120 million contract in May 2013 for the purchase of ten state-of-the-art Kaman SH-2G(I) Super Seasprite aircraft, spare parts, a full mission flight simulator, and related logistics support. Additional aircraft are scheduled to be accepted by the MoD in the next few weeks. The first three aircraft are projected to arrive in Auckland in early 2015 with the remaining deliveries of helicopters and equipment expected to occur by the end of 2015.

The SH-2G Super Seasprite is an advanced maritime weapon system and proven day/night/all-weather multi-mission helicopter. Originally designed to meet the exacting requirements of the U.S. Navy, the SH-2G Super Seasprite has the highest power-to-weight ratio of any maritime helicopter, assuring a safe return-to-ship capability even in single-engine flight conditions. Its robust design, outstanding stability, and excellent reliability have been proven through more than 1.5 million flight hours. The SH-2G is a multi-mission maritime weapon system designed to fulfill anti-submarine warfare (ASW), anti-surface warfare (ASuW), over the horizon targeting, surveillance, troop transport, vertical replenishment, search and rescue, and utility missions. It is the largest, most powerful small ship helicopter in use today and is recognized for its mission effectiveness, support, and unmatched performance. The SH-2G Super Seasprite is currently operated by the Royal New Zealand Navy, the Egyptian Air Force and the Polish Navy.

Ultra Electronics to Supply Sea Sentor Torpedo Defence systems to Royal New Zealand Navy

Ultra Electronics Maritime Systems Inc. (Ultra) is pleased to announce that it will supply towed arrays to its sister company, UK-based Ultra Electronics Sonar Systems, that will ultimately be used by the Royal New Zealand Navy (RNZN), as reported on 21st July 2014.



The Sonar Systems business announced a contract valued at approximately $18M (CAD) to supply two Sea Sentor Surface Ship Torpedo Defence systems for the RNZN Frigate Systems Upgrade (FSU) programme. Ultra's towed array is the key acoustic sensor for Sea Sentor, a system installed in naval ships to detect, classify and localize incoming torpedoes, and to activate countermeasures against them.

Ultra designs, develops, and manufactures various towed arrays for surface ships and submarines at its facility in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada. New Zealand joins Canada, the UK, Australia, The Netherlands, and Turkey in the company's portfolio of international customers

Ken Walker, president of Ultra, commented: "I am very proud to be extending our made in Canada solutions deeper into international waters with the Royal New Zealand Navy. This contract is proof that Ultra continues to provide world-class sonar systems."



The SEA SENTOR™ Surface Ship Torpedo Defense system has been in-service since October 2004, protecting fleets from the increased threat of torpedo attack. With 16 systems delivered to the UK’s Royal Navy, installations on US naval platforms and a recent order by the Turkish Navy, SEA SENTOR™ is the most advanced system available in the market today.

The SEA SENTOR™ system utilizes a towed acoustic passive array especially designed for the detection of torpedoes to classify and localize in-water threats. Tactical advice is presented by the system that is specifically geared to the make, model and current operating mode of the detected threats – single or salvo. Detection ranges to initiate successful defeating tactics are achieved in all conditions; whether operating solo in deep water or in-convoy in busy shipping lanes and littoral waters Countermeasure action is automatically performed according to the tactical advice for the towed system elements. Expendable countermeasures are launched by the operator when prompted to do so.

New Zealand to spend $332m on upgrade of P-3K Orion aircraft


The New Zealand Ministry of Defence (MoD) is likely to spend $332.3m on the modernisation of the Royal New Zealand Air Force's (RNZAF) P-3K Orion maritime patrol aircraft.

Responding to an official information act request from Radio New Zealand, the MoD's acquisition division deputy secretary Des Ashton said the original budget for the project was $377m, but was reduced by the fluctuating exchange rates.

The P-3K Orion upgrade project was undertaken by a mixture of foreign and local contractors in Texas, US, and Blenheim, New Zealand. It covers modernisation and retrofit of a total of six P-3K


With completion of upgrade of the equipment such as computers, mission systems, radar systems, wiring, and antennas, the project is expected to finish halfway through this year, leaving only a software upgrade to be performed.

Ashton said: "If you go back to the configuration of the aeroplane it was quite modern compared to some P3s in the world, but the computing power that was put in the original upgrade back in the 80s/90s was about the power of a commodore 64."

The P-3 Orion is manufactured by Lockheed Martin. It is a four-engine turboprop anti-submarine and maritime surveillance aircraft and is used search and rescue missions, fishery protection, anti-piracy operations, and surveillance by several navies worldwide.

The P-3K Orions are currently used by 5 Squadron based in RNZAF Base Auckland, and are scheduled to be retired from service in 2025.

SH-2G(I) Super Seasprite Helicopter Formally Handed over to Royal New Zealand Navy

The New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF) officially accepted ownership of the new Seasprite SH-2G(I) helicopters from Kaman Aerospace in a ceremony at Royal New Zealand Air Force Base Auckland on March 6 2015. There are three new Seasprites at Base Auckland and the remaining five will be delivered by September. The new SH-2G(I) replaces the SH-2G model that is presently being used.

Chief of Navy, Rear Admiral Jack Steer said the handover marked a significant milestone for the Defence Force’s maritime aviation capability.

“The Seasprites perform a vital function for the Navy, and enhance the roles of our ships at sea, by undertaking a range of tasks including maritime surveillance, search and rescue, counter-terrorism and utility lift. We’ve operated Seasprites since the 1990s and they have proven to be a great capability for us.

“We deployed a Seasprite on HMNZS TE MANA to the Gulf of Aden in 2014 in support of the multi-national Combined Task Force undertaking anti-piracy activities in the region. The Seasprite flew over 120 hours and was used for surveillance and reconnaissance adding substantial value to the operation. We currently have a Seasprite embarked on HMNZS TE KAHA who is on operational deployment until May and the helicopter is an integral part of this mission,” said Rear Admiral Steer.

Operation of the Seasprites is a joint effort between the Navy and Air Force. Seasprites are flown by Navy personnel and maintained by Air Force engineers and technicians who form No.6 Squadron at Whenuapai.



Kaman and the MoD entered into a $120 million contract in May 2013 for the purchase of ten state-of-the-art Kaman SH-2G(I) Super Seasprite aircraft, spare parts, a full mission flight simulator, and related logistics support. Additional aircraft are scheduled to be accepted by the MoD in the next few weeks. The remaining deliveries of helicopters and equipment is expected to occur by the end of 2015.

Nouvelle-Zélande : les T-6C au complet !




La dernière paire de Beechcraft T-6C « Texan II » école a été livrée à l’école de vol de la Royal New Zealand Air Force (NZDF).  Les deux derniers T-6C n° NZ1410 et NZ1411 ont décollé de  Wichita,  le site d'assemblage du constructeur américain dans le Kansas pour rejoindre leur base d’affectation au sein de la NZDF.


Rappel :

Le contrat prévoit en plus des 11 appareils Beechcraft T-6C, un simulateur de vol, ainsi que des postes individuels d’entraînement. Les T-6C seront exploités au sein de l’escadron 14 basé à Ohakea, qui volait des Aermacchi MB339C, jusqu'à la dissolution de la force aérienne de combat de la Nouvelle-Zélande en 2001.


Le T-6 « Texan II » :

Le Hawker-Beechcraft T-6B « Texan II»  est la version la plus moderne disponible de la gamme T6, le cockpit comprend un Head-Up Display (HUD) couplé avec  panneau de configuration Up-Front (UFCP), et Hands-On Throttle and Stick, soit le système mains sur manettes et manche. Le T-6B dispose d’une avionique  avec écrans EFIS et système d’enregistrement des données de vol numérique. Le T-6B est un avion d'entraînement primaire qui permet un enseignement de base aux procédures de vol et aux instruments et permet d’effectuer les figures d’introduction à la  voltige.

Le Beechcraft T-6 «Texan II» est un aéronef à turbopropulseur monomoteur construit par la Raytheon Aircraft Company (maintenant Hawker-Beechcraft). Basé sur une cellule de Pilatus PC-9.

Le T-6 est un développement du Pilatus PC-9, modifiés de manière significative par Beechcraft en vue d'entrer dans le système commun de formation primaire d'aéronef (JPATS) prévu pour les Forces aériennes américaines. Des modifications mineures ont été introduites sur la cellule d’un PC-9, mais des conflits entrer l’USAF et la Navy ont entraîné des retards et des augmentations de coûts (par rapport aux estimations initiales de 3,9 millions à près de 6 millions dollars par avion). De plus, le T-6 se retrouve avec un surpoids de 22% vis-à-vis du PC-9 initial.

Le modèle T-6C est le même que le modèle que le  «B» mais permet l’usage d’armes de bord, telles que : canons, roquettes et bombes.

Rheinmetall delivers last MHOV vehicle to NZDF
29 June 2015

The New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF) has taken delivery of an additional medium heavy operational vehicle (MHOV) from Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles Australia.
Delivered during a ceremony at Trentham Military Camp, near Wellington, the new vehicle is the last of 194 MHOVs to be supplied by Rheinmetall to NZDF under a $113m deal signed in April 2013.
The 4x4 6t (HX60), 6x6 9t (HX58), and 8x8 15t (HX77) MHOVs are scheduled to replace the NZDF's ageing fleet comprising Unimog and heavier Mercedes trucks, which have been operating for nearly 30 years.
New Zealand Army chief major general Dave Gawn said the MHOVs represent a major leap forward in capability and technology for the NZDF.
Gawn said: "Across a range of employment contexts, the MHOV offers us a significantly enhanced logistics and movements capability as a land force for the future.



"Further to the normal troop and equipment carrying roles, additional vehicles are fitted with winches and cranes, which will enable fully independent operations."

Featuring high-capacity electrical systems, air conditioners, and Euro 4 emissions compliant engines, the MHOVs offer increased carrying capacity for cargo and supplies and are also fitted with bolt-on armour kits and weapon mounts, providing greater crew protection and self-defence.
Transportable through the HMNZS Canterbury's side ramp, the fully deployable HX58, HX60, and HX77 variants can also be loaded on and off the vessel using landing craft.
The NZDF has supplied four HX60 models and a HX77 carrying a gap crossing (Bridge) system to Australia, through HMNZS Canterbury for participation in Exercise Talisman Sabre 2015.
The MHOVs are expected to be fully introduced into the NZDF service by December 2017.

New Zealand Defence Force chooses LMT for its Individual Weapon Replacement program
Following the trials programme phase of the evaluation of tenders, New Zealand's Ministry of Defense has selected Lewis Machine & Tool Co Inc of the USA as preferred Tenderer for its Individual Weapon Replacement program. This project will replace the existing New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF) Steyr rifle with a new individual weapon.


In May 2014, the New Zealander Government authorised the Secretary of Defence to undertake a competitive tender process to select a replacement individual weapon for the NZDF. The New Zealand Defense Force currently uses Steyr AUG rifles, a 5.56×45mm assault rifle designed in the 1960s. The replacement of about 8,800 rifles is part of a larger firearms replacement program.

A Request for Tender for the provision of contemporary individual weapons, necessary training, and associated support to the NZDF closed on 12 November 2014. Following the evaluation of the tender responses, the companies listed below were selected for the trials programme phase of the evaluation, which was undertaken between 2 March and 1 June 2015.

Other competitors Beretta New Zealand Limited, Ceská zbrojovka a.s., Colt Canada Corporation, FN HERSTAL, STEYR MANNLICHER GmbH, XTEK Limited (Sig Sauer), and Heckler & Kock GmbH.

Lewis Machine & Tool is already providing its products to US military and UK Ministry of Defense, which has chosen the LM308MWS 7.62x51mm rifle in 2009.

New Zealand selects LMT rifle for Steyr replacement

Remigiusz Wilk, Warsaw - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
25 August 2015




US small arms manufacturer Lewis Machine & Tool Co (LMT) has been named the preferred tenderer in the New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF) Individual Weapon Replacement programme.

IHS Jane's understands that LMT's AR-15-derived CQB16 has been selected to replace the Steyr AUG A1 assault rifle in NZDF service. A New Zealand Ministry of Defence (MoD) notification released in mid-August only said that LMT had been downselected.

The New Zealand MoD was authorised in May 2014 to undertake a tender to purchase 8,800 'off-the-shelf' replacement rifles and associated accessories. A key requirement is that the new weapon with suitable sights should be able to detect, identify, and engage adversaries at both close quarters and at distances of up to 500 m in daylight.

A request for proposals closed on 12 November 2014, and following an evaluation eight companies were selected for trials that were undertaken between 2 March and 1 June 2015. The trials tested rifles provided by Beretta Defense Technologies (represented by a local branch); Ceska Zbrojovka; Colt Canada Corp; FN Herstal; Steyr Mannlicher; SIG Sauer (represented by New Zealand dealer XTEK Ltd); Heckler & Koch; and LMT.



IHS Jane's understands that LMT offered CQB16 variants with 406 mm and 457 mm barrels for testing.

The MoD notification said the new rifle is expected to be introduced into service by 2016-17.

Lockheed Martin Canada Latest Achievement on New Zealand ANZAC Frigate Systems Upgr Project

Lockheed Martin Canada marked an important milestone toward modernizing the Royal New Zealand Navy's two ANZAC Class ships. The company announced that the ANZAC frigate systems upgrade project has successfully completed the combat system critical design review on schedule and to New Zealand's satisfaction.



he government-mandated review proves a contractor's progress and planning for all elements of a program. It covered in detail all of Lockheed Martin Canada's plans for shipboard systems and designs. With the successful review, Lockheed Martin Canada can begin implementing detailed designs and plans for the system's key components, which will in turn lead to ship installation. The milestone is the latest achievement for Lockheed Martin Canada's ANZAC team in the 16 months since contract award.

In April 2014, following an extensive worldwide competitive tender, Lockheed Martin Canada was selected as the Prime Systems Integrator by the New Zealand Ministry of Defence to upgrade the combat systems on their ANZAC class ships. Lockheed Martin Canada's Combat Management System 330 is the backbone of the technical solution for this project and many of the sub-systems to be supplied by Lockheed Martin Canada are common to the Royal Canadian Navy's Halifax Class Modernization Project.

"Our success on this program is a direct result of our collaborative approach to building relationships and demonstrated ability to manage multiple stakeholders through complex projects," said Rosemary Chapdelaine, vice president for Lockheed Martin Canada Mission Systems and Training.

Echoing this sentiment of collaboration, New Zealand Ministry of Defence project director Gary Collier added, "I continue to be impressed with Lockheed Martin Canada's flexibility, responsiveness and pragmatic approach to achieving a successful outcome for both parties. We are pleased to have Lockheed Martin Canada as the prime contractor and partner for this critical project for New Zealand's Ministry of Defence and the Royal New Zealand Navy."

Lockheed Martin Canada's combat management system was also down-selected as one of two solutions qualified to compete for the Royal New Zealand Navy's Maritime Sustainment Capability - the future replenishment tanker - which will maintain afloat replenishment capability for the New Zealand Defence Force.

Rosemary Chapdelaine continued, "This project has truly placed our products and capability in a global spotlight and positioned us for future international growth, demonstrating our ability to create jobs and economic growth for Canada. ANZAC leverages the expertise and record of success established through Canada's Halifax Class Modernization Project - and now other customers can take full advantage of the modern combat system integration methodology and lessons learned from both of these sophisticated programs."

Australian and New Zealand forces about to train another 2000 Iraqi soldiers

With over 2100 Iraqi Army soldiers and officers trained by Australian and New Zealand forces in Iraq the combined Task Group prepares to train another 2000 soldiers. The 1st Battalion, 71st Iraqi Army Brigade, who completed approximately two weeks of training in June, returned with the remainder of the 71st Iraqi Army Brigade in late September to commence training.


Commanding Officer of the Training Task Unit, Lieutenant Colonel Ash Collingburn said that the trainers are looking forward to the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. “Training this brigade represents a significant contribution to combat Daesh,” he said.

“Overall, the progress made in a short period of time has been pleasing and enabled by the trust we have quickly built with our Iraqi counterparts. They have looked towards us to instill confidence in themselves, their tactics and their equipment.”

The 71st Iraqi Army Brigade currently consists of approximately 800 Iraqi Army soldiers and is expected to receive reinforcements in the coming weeks.

“The training package will be similar to what we have previously delivered, although we are anticipating being able to achieve a higher standard of training because of the experience already held within the Brigade,” Lieutenant Colonel Collingburn said.

Training support has also continued with the Iraqi Army Non Commissioned Officer (NCO) Academy following a further request from the Iraqi Security Forces.

“We are also pleased to continue our relationship with the Iraqi NCO Academy which commenced a new course in early October,” Lieutenant Colonel Collingburn said.

“This course will train another 240 squad leaders drawn from across five Divisions of the Iraqi Army.

“On return to their Battalions, these NCOs will pass on their experience and the knowledge gained from the course on their fellow soldiers, ultimately contributing to the fight against Daesh.”

Further training will be provided to other Iraqi Army Battalions in the near future in accordance with the Iraqi Ministry of Defence priorities and concurrent operations against Daesh (ISIL).
