Botswana to get F-16 "Fighting Falcons"
Written by Cassius Sande
Friday, 11 February 2011 11:03

EDITOR - According to recent posts on the Internet, Botswana is going to get 16 American made F-16 'Fighting Falcons' (all Block-40s) for its air force. These are high performance multi-role combat aircraft whose arrival at the massive ultra-modern Thebe Phatshwa Air Base will greatly enhance Botswana's military aviation capabilities and definitely write a new chapter in the book of military aviation in Southern Africa.

This is not an isolated development as other neighbouring air forces have also been beefing up their air forces. Zambia had eight of its MiG-21s upgraded by Israel Aircraft Industries to MiG-21-2000 series. Namibia acquired a dozen F-7NMs, one of the most lethal variants of the F-7s to come out of China. Zimbabwe has ex-Libyan MiG-23 'Floggers' and BAe Hawk-60s in storage- operates a squadron of F-7IIs and placed an order for 12 Chengdu FC-1 'Fierce Dragons' from China.

Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe use K-8 'Karakorum' trainers they acquired from China. Significant resources are required in order to get Mozambique's MiG-21s air borne again.South Africa is taking delivery of some 24 BAe Hawk-120 fighter trainers and 28 JAS-39 'Gripen' multi-role fighters giving it an edge over regional air forces for a long time.

Botswana signs deal for Pilatus PC-7 Mk II trainers
By Craig Hoyle

Botswana is to receive five new PC-7 Mk II turboprop trainers from Swiss manufacturer Pilatus.

Signed in the Botswanan capital Gaborone on 13 April, the roughly SFr40 million ($44.8 million) contract also includes the provision by Pilatus of a ground-based training system, plus spare parts, logistics support and training for pilots and technicians. The aircraft and all associated equipment should be delivered by early 2013, the company says.

The Botswana Defence Force operates a fleet of six PC-7s, as listed in Flightglobal's MiliCAS database. The most recent of these entered use in 1990, it says.

"The decision confirms the continued trust that the Botswana Defence Force places in Pilatus and the Pilatus aircraft as a training system," the company says.

Botswana's order will lead to a resumption of production of the PC-7 Mk II, which MiliCAS says is already flown by the air forces of Brunei, Malaysia and South Africa.

Pilatus is performing a glass cockpit upgrade to the South African Air Force's 35-strong fleet of the type, with 10 aircraft having been modified by the end of 2010.

The company could also be the recipient of a follow-on order to equip Malaysia with a further 12 examples, an industry source suggested late last year.

Botswana PC-7s collided in mid-air

The four experienced BDF pilots were on a refresher training course when the Pilatus PC-7 Turbo Trainer planes, commonly known as PC-7, they were piloting collided mid-air over the village and crashed over Letlhakeng Primary School, whilst another landed in a three bed-roomed house owned by a Letlhakeng resident, nearly killing a woman and a one and half year old child. Those who witnessed the incident say at first the planes performed a colourful stunt, where they went on formation as they spun, only for their tails to collide and then there was a loud bang followed by the aircrafts spiralling downwards. The pilots then used parachutes to escape, but one of them was nearly gutted by fire from the burning aircraft. He later died at a Gaborone hospital. At Olefile Senyang's home, where one of the aircrafts crash-landed, a 31-year-old woman escaped through the window when the cockpit of the PC-7 landed in the kitchen. In an interview with Mmegi just after the incident, Senyang said that the woman, who is a nanny at his home "used the backdoor of the kitchen to escape. But I am told she has since been admitted for shock at a hospital.



We are also lucky that my grandchild whom she looks after, was away at a neighbour's place," he said. Senyang says he heard a loud bang followed by smoke and then received a phone call informing him that a plane has crashed into his house.

"I found the police and my neighbours and other villagers busy trying to douse the fire that was threatening to consume the house," he said. He said in the house beds, blankets, clothes and other home appliances like a television set, were burnt in the inferno.

Senyang said that he would like to get all his belongings and house back, adding that he expects the BDF to compensate him.

His neighbour, 60-year-old Setshego Ramoleko said he also heard the loud bang and went to Senyang's house, which was on fire. He said he helped douse the inferno and asked other neighbours and bystanders to come to the rescue and they went on to collect sand and water to put out the fire."But I did not see the pilots. I hear they escaped by parachute," he said.

Meanwhile students at Letlhakeng Primary School were immediately released from school after the other plane landed at the school burning down a Hilux van that was parked next to the classrooms. Letlhakeng acting station commander, Inspector Daniel Katse, confirmed the incident but said they were not aware that any pilot had died.

He said the 31-year-old maid was being observed at a hospital and will soon be released. He said they are expecting aviation experts to help them in investigating the double crash.

merçi à Klan pour sa réponse concernant ces CF-5 en service au Botswana
je parle bien de CF-5 puisque ces petits chasseurs bombardiers ont été construit au Canada
si je ne me trompe pas la denomination BF-5 est une erreur puisque je doute fort que ce pays d'afrique subsahariene
aie pu modifie ou upgradé ces avions la denomination BF-5 est donc incorrecte
le seul pays ayant modifié en profondeur des CF-5 est le Venezuela avec comme maître d'oeuvre IAI et ces avions là ont
ete completment upgradé au Venezuela ils ont donc reçu avec l'aval des canadiens la denomination de VF-5

US, Botswana special forces train together
Written by US Army Africa
Wednesday, 11 July 2012 12:46
A total of 60 Special Forces soldiers from the United States and Botswana have came together for the first combined field training exercise in 10 years for Exercise Eastern Piper 12.

The exercise, held between June 1 and 25 and conducted by U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) and Special Operations Command, Africa (SOCAF), was a three week Foreign International Defense (FID) structured counter-terrorism base exercise, which took place at the Thebepatswa Air Base in Gaborone, Botswana.

U.S. Special Forces soldiers from 10th Special Forces Group (Airborne) out of Fort Carson, Colorado, trained with the Botswana Defense Forces Special Forces (BDFSF) on marksmanship, close quarter battle, medical and tracking training in an effort to strengthen U.S. and BDFSF relationships and to promote and support Special Operations Capabilities, said Master Sergeant Grady Dewitt, noncommissioned officer in charge for SOCAFRICA Exercise Branch.

"It is great seeing forces in Africa excel when working shoulder to shoulder with American Forces. The BDF has shown time and time again that they are a professional military force capable of handling their own affairs," Dewitt said.

Eastern Piper began with a week of U.S. Special Forces-led combat marksmanship (CMMS) training where BDFSF soldiers perfected their ability to engage targets with precision using their submachine guns and pistols. The second week of the exercise consisted of close quarter battle (CQB) with breaching techniques, such as manual breaching, ballistic breaching and explosive breaching.

Major Nathan Swindler, commander, Charlie Company, 4th Battalion, 10th SFG (Airborne), said he was able to gain a firsthand appreciation for the BDFSF's selfless service to their nation.

"The exercise was a fantastic opportunity to share tactics, techniques, and procedures with one of the finest Special Operations Forces in Africa, and the professionalism and proficiency of the BDFSF made the exercise extremely rewarding. While working, training, eating and billeting with our BDFSF partners, we discovered that our organizations and our hardships are quite similar," Swindler said.

Also during week two, U.S. Special Forces received training on the theory and practical application of combat tracking led by the BDFSF.

"In addition to gaining a better understanding of the intricacies of combat tracking, the BDFSF reinforced that it is training, not technology, that sets Special Operation Forces apart from their peers. The BDFSF lack a lot of the technology that U.S. soldiers are accustomed to having, but they remain able to successfully accomplish highly complex operations," Swindler said.

The final week of Eastern Piper included a visit by the U.S. Ambassador for Botswana, the U.S. Secretary of the Army, and the BDF Assistant Chief of Staff for Training and Doctrine. After the visit, the U.S. Special Forces and BDFSF conducted a combined parachute jump from a BDF C-130 aircraft.

Major Jason Farmer, foreign area officer for the Office of Security Cooperation (OSC), U.S. Embassy Gaborone, Botswana, said these military-to-military events are the key to building mature partnership and capacity between our two nations' militaries.

"It was a great opportunity to see both of the Special Forces soldiers re-establish a relationship and partnership after a decade of little to no interaction. They [BDFSF] proved to be a formidable force, and really demonstrated a high level of capability and discipline. Soldiers [on both sides] expressed gratitude for the high level of proficiency demonstrated by both forces, which enabled the exercise to provide valuable shared training. It was evident that we both welcomed the renewed engagement, and hope that it will continue in the future. We hope that this will be the catalyst for many more shared exercises and partnerships," Farmer said.

Formal Handover of Botswana Defence Force (BDF) PC-7 MKII


(Source: Pilatus Aircraft; issued Feb. 11, 2013)



STANS, Switzerland --- Pilatus Aircraft Ltd is proud to announce that the Formal Handover Ceremony of the Botswana Defence Force PC-7 MkII turbo trainer aircraft took place on 8 February 2013 in Gaborone.

His Excellency, the President of the Republic of Botswana and Commander-in-Chief, Lieutenant General Seretse Khama Ian Khama, members of the Defence Council, Botswana Defence Force General Officers, Retired Generals, Senior Government Officials and Defence Attaches accredited to Botswana and a Pilatus delegation attended the event hosted by the Botswana Defence Force Commander Lt. Gen. Galebotswe.

This major milestone marks the successful completion of the delivery and entry into service of the five new BDF Pilatus PC-7 MkII aircraft. In his handover address, the Pilatus Chairman Oscar J. Schwenk noted that the relationship between the Botswana Defence Force and Pilatus dates back to 1989 when the supply contract for seven PC-7 trainer aircraft was signed.

A relationship that became gradually stronger once the first aircraft became operational in 1990, 22 years ago. After two decades of successful operation with more than 28,000 hours flown and more than 70,000 landings recorded the ageing PC-7 aircraft reached the end of their operating life.

In 2011 the BDF opted to replace the PC-7 with the more advanced and modern PC-7 MkII trainer aircraft, a decision we believe was founded on the established relationship between us, the excellent track record of the PC-7, and a proven product such as the PC-7 MkII of which more than 160 aircraft have been sold. The PC-7 MkII has also been selected by other major Air Forces, the most recent order, subsequent to Botswana, being India.

The major program highlight was the acceleration of the schedule on request of the BDF, with all five new aircraft being delivered in 2012, four months earlier than originally planned.

The old PC-7s have also been phased out and from 2013 onwards all cadets can be trained on the new modern PC-7 MkII aircraft.

As in the past, the new aircraft will be operated and maintained by Botswana Defence Force personnel, supported by Pilatus Switzerland.


Pilatus Aircraft Ltd was founded in 1939 and is currently world market leader in the manufacture and sale of single-engine turboprop aircraft. It is the only Swiss company that develops and produces private and training aircraft. Pilatus, which is headquartered in Stans, Switzerland, is licensed to maintain and perform upgrades on a variety of aircraft. This service is complemented by three independent subsidiaries in Altenrhein (Switzerland), in Broomfield (Colorado, USA) and Adelaide (Australia). With a workforce of over 1300 at its head office, Pilatus is one of the biggest employers in Central Switzerland.

S. Korean military delegation due in Botswana next week

SEOUL, Nov. 18 (Yonhap) -- A senior South Korean military delegation will visit Botswana next week to expand defense ties and seek opportunities to export home-made trainer jets to the resource-rich African country, Seoul's defense ministry said Monday.

A team of eight military, acquisition and Air Force officials, led by a two-star general, will make their first visit to Botswana from Nov. 23-28, the ministry said, in a move to boost sales of military aircraft.

The Korean delegation plans to meet Botswana officials and hold a business presentation on the T-50 supersonic trainer, built jointly by Korea Aerospace Industries (KIA) and U.S. aerospace giant Lockheed Martin, as well as the FA-50, a light attack variant of the T-50.

"The visit is aimed at providing government support to facilitate the export of the T-50 or the FA-50," a senior ministry official said on customary anonymity. "We hope the upcoming visit could help pave the way for South Korea to tap into Africa, expanding its overseas market focused in Southeast Asia, Latin America and Europe."

It is known that the Botswana government is seeking to acquire about 16 jets, with plans to receive a first batch of eight aircraft with no specific date yet to be decided, according to military officials.

The latest move comes as KAI, South Korea's sole aircraft maker, is stepping up its overseas marketing efforts to make inroads into emerging nations with growing defense needs.

Thailand is currently negotiating with KAI to buy T-50s and FA-50s, with plans to buy the first batch of nine jets out of the proposed purchase estimated at 16 aircraft, according to industry sources and military officials.

In addition, Seoul is set to export 12 FA-50s worth some US$450 million to the Philippines, expecting to sign a deal by the end of this year.

KAI has developed and manufactured aircraft such as the T-50, the FA-50, the KT-1 basic trainer and the indigenous light utility helicopter Surion, and have exported trainers to countries including Indonesia, Turkey and Peru.

Achat logique comme je l'ais toujours dit le FA-50 est le véritable successeur du F-5...(les FRA devrait sérieusement se penché la dessus)
