Issues related to cooperation in the political and military field between Angola and France topped Thursday [May 26] the audience that the Minister of National Defense, João Lourenço, granted to the French ambassador to the country.

This information was provided to journalists at the end of the audience granted to French diplomat Jean-Claude Moyet who said that this approach is aimed at strengthening bilateral relations between the two countries.

Asked about the existing cooperation ties between the two countries, Jean – Claude Moyret stressed the importance that French companies play in the oil sector, when it comes to large investments and long-term partnerships.

“Despite the crisis derived from the oil price fall in the international market, which perhaps will not last, I hope, that companies in the oil sector decide to invest again in Angola with projects to keep oil production in the country,” he said.

Angolan Navy to get vessels from Privinvest

Jeremy Binnie, London - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
08 September 2016

Privinvest, a company that owns several shipyards, announced on 2 September that it will provide "a range of vessels" to the Angolan Navy as part of a "major shipbuilding and maritime economy programme".

It said that, as part of this programme, it would also team with a company called Simportex to develop and operate a shipyard in Angola that will be able to build and service ships, as well as transfer technology that would enable naval vessels to be constructed in Angola.

"This marks another step in our co-operation with one of the most dynamic economies in Africa," a press release quoted Boulos Hankach, president of Privinvest Shipbuilding Investments, as saying.

Malgré la crise, l'Angola commande 17 navires militaires au Franco-Libanais Safa


OLJ/AFP 09/09/2016


Le gouvernement angolais a passé commande à un chantier naval occidental de 17 patrouilleurs militaires pour un montant de près de 500 millions d'euros à la société du Franco-Libanais Iskandar Safa. Et ce alors que l'économie du pays traverse une passe difficile pour cause de chute des cours du pétrole.

Dans un décret signé par le président José Eduardo dos Santos en date du 29 août, les autorités annoncent que ce contrat, d'un montant annoncé de 495 millions d'euros, a été attribué à la société Privinvest Shipbuilding Investments LCC, propriété de l'homme d'affaires français d'origine libanaise Iskandar Safa.

Ces navires, dont le type n'a pas été précisé, auront pour mission "l'interception et la dissuasion, ainsi que la surveillance permanente des côtes" du pays, a précisé le décret.

Dans un communiqué, Privinvest a confirmé la "fourniture d'une série de bâtiments pour la marine angolaise", sans autre détail. L'entreprise a également annoncé l'installation prochaine en Angola, avec la société locale Simportex, d'un chantier naval "en vue de construire des navires de guerre et de fournir une large variété de services à la flotte angolaise".
"Ce chantier marque une nouvelle étape dans notre coopération avec l'une des économies les plus dynamiques en Afrique", s'est réjoui le président de Privinvest, Boulos Hankach.

Ce groupe dispose de plusieurs chantiers navals au Moyen-Orient, en France (les Constructions mécaniques de Normandie à Cherbourg) et affirme avoir livré plus de 2000 navires à plus de 40 marines à travers le monde.

Après le boom économique qui a suivi la fin de la guerre civile en 2002, l'Angola, actuel premier producteur de pétrole en Afrique subsaharienne, subit de plein fouet la chute des cours de l'or noir.

Plus d'un tiers de ses 25 millions d'habitants vivent sous le seuil de pauvreté et le cours officiel de la devise angolaise, le kwanza, a perdu plus de 60% face au dollar depuis le début 2015.
Son ministre des Finances depuis trois ans, Armando Manuel, a été limogé lundi, sans explication officielle.

Zimbabwe and Angola’s defence forces will continue exchanging notes in order to strengthen bilateral relations between the two countries, visiting Chief of Staff of the Angolan Armed Forces General Geraldo Sachipengo Nunda, said yesterday [September 5]. In an interview, Gen Nunda said the visit was also meant to reassure the people from both countries that their relationship dates back to the time of the liberation struggle. “My visit to Zimbabwe is to strengthen the relations between the two countries, Zimbabwe and Angola, as well as the two national Defence Forces. We want to reaffirm to our people that Zimbabwe and Angola are brotherly nations,” he said.

Gen Nunda and his delegation arrived in the country over the weekend and the visit was aimed at enabling the two Defence Forces to strengthen bilateral ties.

He visited the Zimbabwe National Army headquarters in Harare yesterday where he first had a Joint Guard of Honour with Commander Zimbabwe Defence Forces General Constantino Guveya Chiwenga.

He later paid a courtesy call at the ZDF offices where a presentation was made on the organisation and roles of the Ministry of Defence.

The presentation was also attended by Commander ZNA Lieutenant General Philip Valerio Sibanda, Commander Air Force of Zimbabwe Air Marshal Perence Shiri, Major-Generals Douglas Nyikayaramba and Engelbrecht Rugeje, among other senior ZDF officers.

According to his itinerary, Gen Nunda is expected to visit the National Defence College, Zimbabwe Defence Industry, Zimbabwe Military Academy and the National Heroes Acre, among others areas.

In April last year, a 10-member delegation from the Popular Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA), met President Mugabe at his Munhumutapa offices to share notes on the two countries’ experiences since the attainment of independence.

The delegation was led by MPLA secretary-general Cde Juliao Mateus Paulo.

Speaking to journalists after a closed door meeting with President Mugabe, Cde Paulo said their discussions centred on the two countries’ liberation struggles and possible ways of strengthening relations between Zanu-PF and the MPLA.

Angolan Air Force received its first Su-30 multirole fighter aircraft

By Dylan Malyasov - Sep 27, 2017


Angola has received the first two of 12 Sukhoi Su-30K multirole fighters and is expected to receive the rest by early 2018, Aleksandr Vorobei, the CEO of the 558th Aviation Repair Plant in Belarus, told Sputnik on 19 September.

According to the Sputnik, Angola signed a contract to purchase 12 Russian Su-30K fighters, which are currently stationed at the 558 Aviation Repair Plant in Belarus’ Baranovichi, during a visit of Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin to Luanda in 2013.

The aircraft were formerly operated by the Indian Air Force, which has ordered more than 200 Su-30MKIs in a number of batches. The early models delivered were basic aircraft without features like canards and thrust vector controls, and it is these 18 early model aircraft (ten Su-30MK and eight Su-30K fighters delivered between May 1997 and December 1999) that were returned to Russia and replaced with more advanced Su-30MKIs.

India had intended to upgrade these early aircraft but instead used them as part-exchange for new aircraft. They were retired in 2006 and sent to the 558th Aircraft Repair Plant at Baranovichi in Belarus between August and November 2011 as the property of Irkut Corporation.

Angola receives maritime surveillance aircraft from Israel




Written by defenceWeb, Monday, 16 October 2017


Angola is operating a Cessna Citation for maritime surveillance.The Angolan Air Force is operating a Cessna Citation jet configured by Israel’s BIRD Aerosystems for the maritime surveillance role.

IHS Jane's Defence Weekly reports that the Citation has been fitted with Leonardo's SeaSpray active electronically scanned array (AESA) multimode surveillance radar and a Controp electro-optical (EO) sensor in a belly fairing. The aircraft also has an automatic identification system (AIS) receiver and satellite communications systems.

BIRD Aerosystems told IHS Jane’s that the $20 million Airborne Surveillance, Information, and Observation (ASIO) contract includes the maritime surveillance aircraft, ground-based command and control centre and ASIO workstations on naval vessels. More aircraft will be delivered at a later date.

"The client wants to be able to identify motherships that remain outside of the waters and the smaller associated satellite fishing vessels that enter its waters," Shaul Mazor, vice-president of marketing and business development at BIRD, told IHS Jane's.

BIRD Aerosystems in February 2015 announced a contract from an undisclosed customer for maritime surveillance aircraft “installed with multiple sensors and multiple sub-systems”.


The Citation (N54FT) was exported from the United States to Angola at the beginning of the year and cancelled from the US register on 19 January 2017. Its previous owner was listed by the Federal Aviation Administration as “Bank of Utah Trustee”. The aircraft was then seen at Megiddo Airfield in Israel in January and was flying in Angola by August. The aircraft was built in 1979.

Bird Aerosystems was established in 2001 in Israel. It specialises in airborne missile protection systems and airborne surveillance, information and observation solutions for maritime and ground surveillance.

Angola orders C295s

Written by defenceWeb, Monday, 12 March 2018




A C295W.The Angolan military has ordered three C295 transport aircraft from Airbus, and will use them for transport and maritime surveillance duties.

The three aircraft are being acquired for nearly 160 million euros, according to documents seen by the Lusa news agency last week. Lusa reported that Angolan President Joao Lourenco on 2 March authorised commodities trading company Simportex to finalise the contract for the aircraft with Airbus Defence and Space.

The contract is worth 159.9 million euros. It will be financed by Banco Bilbao and Vizcaya Argentaria (BBVA) of Spain and be included in the contract of the Public Investment Programme of the Angolan government.

It appears the C295s will be used by the Angolan Navy for maritime surveillance, according to Angolan media. Given the price tag, it is likely that this includes specialised maritime surveillance equipment. Maritime patrol variants of the C295 are fitted with the Fully Integrated Tactical System (FITS) for mission control, and this includes a search radar, electro-optical sensors, magnetic anomaly detector and other avionics. Weapons can include torpedoes, missiles, mines and depth charges.

Angola has facilitated other defence deals through Simportex, and in 2016 attempted to acquire naval vessels from the Privinvest shipbuilding group via Simportex, and establish a shipyard in Angola for the local construction of naval vessels. However, it seems that little has since transpired regarding this deal.

Airbus said "we are naturally pleased to see the steps that have been taken in Angola and believe that we have the right product for the nation's needs. We are optimistic of completing the required negotiations in due course."

A growing number of countries in Africa have acquired the C295, the most recent being Mali, which received a single winglet-equipped C295W in December 2016. Mali’s selection of the aircraft was apparently influenced by Ghana’s use of the C295 in support of the Minusma mission in Mali from 2014, with the aircraft exhibiting good endurance and unrefuelled range as well as the ability to operate on unpaved runways.

The C295W is the standard production version. It was unveiled in 2013 with the aim of improving performance and fuel economy, especially in hot and high conditions. The winglets improve cruise and fuel consumption through a reduction in drag and increase in lift.

Meanwhile, updated Pratt & Whitney PW127 engines add power in climb and cruise, improving all round performance. The engine changes increase payload by 1 500 kg at 25 000 feet, raise maximum operational altitude from 24 000 to 26 000 feet and increase payload by 1 ton from hot and high airfields.

In Africa, at the moment Algeria has six C295s in service, and Egypt 24. Ghana acquired three C295s, which it flew on behalf of the United Nations in Mali. There are also non-African C295 operators on the continent – for instance, the Spanish Air Force has used the C295 for humanitarian assistance missions in Africa as it is cheaper to fly than the C-130 Hercules, while its CN235 MPAs are used to patrol for pirates, gather intelligence on land and sea and monitor sea lanes around Somalia and the Gulf of Aden.

According to Airbus, a total of 206 C295s have been ordered and 165 delivered, with 163 in operation around the world today. One of the most recent customers was Brazil, which ordered an additional C295 for search and rescue, taking its fleet up to 15.

Angola confirmed as Super Dvora Mk 3 patrol boat customer

Written by defenceWeb, Thursday, 10 May 2018




Super Dvora patrol boats for AngolaAngola is the customer for four Super Dvora Mk 3 patrol boats ordered from Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) in 2015.

At the time the deal was announced, IAI only said the vessels were going to an undisclosed African country and that they would be delivered in 2016.

According to Angola’s official government gazette published on 1 March this year, budget information has revealed that the country is spending $4.3 million on equipment for its Dvora vessels, including radars.

The Super Dvora Mk 3 is currently in service with several navies worldwide. The type has an overall length of 27 meters, a top speed in excess of 40 knots, and displaces approximately 50 tonnes. It has a range of over 1 000 nautical miles at 10 knots. The type can be armed with 20, 23, 25 or 30 mm cannons, 7.62 or 12.7 mm machineguns and 40 mm grenade launchers. These can be mounted on automatic turrets or manually aimed. Missiles can also be fitted. Accommodation provides for 12 crewmembers.

The Super Dvora MK 3 can be propelled by articulating surface drives (ASD) or waterjets. The ASD system enables operation in extremely shallow water at minimal drafts of 1.2 metres. The ASD system is also highly manoeuvrable, steering the craft with thrust vectoring.

Angola’s most recent budget also makes provision for the acquisition of six transport helicopters for $52 million and budgets $9.5 million for maritime patrol vessels. According to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute’s Arms Transfers database, in 2016 Angola ordered several patrol vessels from France as part of a 495 million euro deal, but not much is known about this deal.

In 2016 Angola ordered two fast patrol craft from Whitehead Sistemi Subacquei for around 7 million euros.

Angola has already taken delivery of a number of helicopters over the last decade, including four A109K and two AW139 helicopters from AgustaWestland (Leonardo Helicopters) for use by the Navy; eight Mi-171Sh armed transport helicopters from Russia and 12 second hand and upgraded Mi-24P/Mi-35P attack helicopters from Russia.
