Royal Air Force Typhoons intercept Russian aircraft near Baltics
May 14, 2016





oyal Air Force Typhoon fighter jets have carried out their first intercept of Russian aircraft in this round of NATO’s Baltic Air Policing mission (BAP).

That reported by Royal Air Force website.

The jets, which deployed to the region less than three weeks ago, were scrambled from Amari air base in Estonia, to intercept three Russian aircraft approaching the Baltic states. The military transport aircraft identified as AN-26 ‘Curl, AN-12 ‘Cub’ and IL-76 ‘Candid’ were intercepted as they were not transmitting a recognised identification code and were unresponsive.

Defence Secretary Michael Fallon said:
This is another example of just how important the UK’s contribution to the Baltic Air Policing Mission is. We were able to instantly respond to this act of Russian aggression – demonstration of our commitment to NATO’s collective defence.

Four RAF Typhoon and pilots from II (Army Co-operation) Squadron from Royal Air Force Lossiemouth, were deployed in April to support the BAP mission, an enduring defensive NATO effort that sees alliance members without their own air policing assets assisted by others in four-monthly cycles. This rotation, which is the third consecutive year the year the UK has committed to BAP, will see UK jets operating alongside Portuguese F16s operating from Šiauliai in Lithuania. Last time, Typhoon fighters were scrambled 17 times, and intercepted over 40 Russian aircraft. During one launch last July, the Typhoons intercepted 10 separate Russian aircraft, including eight fighters.


One of the pilots involved in the mission said;

The scramble went exactly as planned, we launched our Typhoon aircraft quickly and then using our advanced sensors and mission systems, combined with support from our Battlespace Managers on the ground, carried out textbook intercepts of the three aircraft

The mission in Estonia is supported by elements from across the Royal Air Force, deployed as 140 Expeditionary Air Wing (140 EAW). When asked about the mission Wing Commander Gordon Melville, Officer Commanding 140 EAW said;

We have once more proven our ability to secure the skies in the vicinity of the Baltic States and have demonstrated the close link between the Royal Air Force, Estonian and NATO units that have planned and enabled this defensive response so successfully. We will continue to standby 24/7 to secure the Baltic skies.

UK to increase training to Oman
The UK will increase its short term training effort in Oman by a third this year, Defence Secretary Michael Fallon has announced.






The commitment came as he met the Omani Minister Responsible for Defence Affairs, His Excellency Sayyid Badr bin Saud bin Harub Al Busaidi to review the defence relationship between the two countries. They also signed a new defence Memorandum of Understanding.

Britain’s armed forces plan to deploy 45 short term training teams to Oman in 2016, compared with the annual average of 34. These teams will play a key role in training Omani troops on range of core skills such as crisis management, instructing medical teams in combat response and teaching engineers how to use vital equipment.

The uplift complements a comprehensive programme of exercises which includes a four day maritime exercise focussing on sea mine threats and a six week land exercise to train Omani troops on how to operate in a mountainous environment. The UK also intends to look at options for a permanent training facility in the country.

Michael Fallon also took the opportunity to cover a number of mutual defence interests and gain an insight into regional issues including the conflict in Yemen.

Defence Secretary Michael Fallon said:

This training uplift underlines the commitment we made in our Strategic Defence and Security Review to increase our partnerships in the Gulf region.

Oman is our friend. We are working more closely than ever with them across military, counter-terrorism and intelligence fields to tackle shared threats to stability.

Oman is a longstanding British ally in the Gulf with shared interests across diplomatic, economic and security matters.

The meeting today follows a visit to the country in March where Mr Fallon announced the intention to develop a multi-million pound joint venture between British defence company Babcock International and the Oman Drydock company.

The agreement, supporting development at the booming Duqm Port complex, will provide vital engineering support to the world’s naval vessels.

UK trials networked cueing system on MCMV

Richard Scott, London - IHS Jane's International Defence Review
17 May 2016



A development version of QinetiQ's POINTER Maritime network cueing system has been fitted to a forward-deployed UK Royal Navy (RN) Hunt-class mine countermeasures vessel (MCMV) for an extended trial.

HMS Middleton, currently based in Bahrain as part of the UK Mine Countermeasures Force, is evaluating the system to assess its contribution to improving situational awareness and calculating weapon arcs when countering asymmetric surface threats.

Originally developed to fulfil an Urgent Operational Requirement for the land environment, POINTER has subsequently been migrated to the maritime domain so as to provide a link between the command team, ship sensors, and the upper-deck weapon teams. POINTER Maritime takes feeds from ship sensors to provide improved situational awareness, computes firing arcs, and determines weapon allocation in real time. It can also generate target cues to crew-served weapons.

A basic POINTER Maritime fit was originally the subject of a demonstration on board HMS Middleton during 'Joint Warrior 15-2' exercise in 2015. During this drill a POINTER base station, hosted on a Getac F110 ruggedised tablet, was installed on the bridge. According to QinetiQ, this system provides the crew with the "ability to visualise the dynamic weapon arcs and weapon aim tell-back as the ship manoeuvres in combat, and the subsequent impact on arcs of fire of the weapons fitted with POINTER".

The same fit has remained on board HMS Middleton, which deployed to the Gulf in late 2015, for what is described as "an enduring trial". The ship is fitted with a combination of crew-served Mk 44 Miniguns and L111A1 (M2QCB) .50 calibre heavy machine guns for close-in protection.

Royaume-Uni : Un contrat de 411M£ pour le Spear 3
Dans Actualité Défense, Actualité Missiles
Publié le 18/05/2016 à 15h29, par Emmanuel Huberdeau


Le ministère de la défense britannique a annoncé le 18 mai 2016 avoir accordé un contrat d'une valeur de 411M£ à MBDA pour poursuivre le développement du missile Spear 3. Ce contrat fait suite à un premier engagement de 150M£ accordé en 2010 pour lancer la phase d'évaluation du système.

Le Spear 3 est un dérivé de la famille Brimstone qui équipe déjà les Tornado de la Royal Air Force et sera intégré sur Typhoon. Il a été dévoilé en 2012 à l'occasion du salon de Farnborough. Le nouveau missile a été développé afin de pouvoir être embarqué dans la soute interne du F-35B. Il est équipé d'un turbojet lui conférant une portée de plus de 90 km, annonce le ministère de la défense britannique. Le missile fait 1,8 mètre de long pour une masse de moins de 100 kg. Il est doté d'un système de guidage mixte couplant guidage GPS et inertiel. Le Spear 3 est aussi doté d'une liaison de donnée. Il devrait conférer aux F-35B britanniques une capacité de frappe de précision contre des objectifs de taille limitée, tels que des blindés ou des véhicules.

Le Spear 3 a été testé pour la première fois en mars 2016 depuis un Tornado sur un polygone d'essai au Pays de Galles. Son entrée en service est prévue pour le milieu des années 2020.

Dinner Guest of Airbus Fuels Speculation of UK Helicopter Deal
Andrew Chuter, Defense News 11:32 a.m. EDT May 19, 2016



LONDON — The chief executive of Ascent Flight Training was the guest of Airbus Helicopters at a recent industry dinner, fueling speculation that Airbus has won the yet unannounced contract to provide and support rotorcraft to train British military crews starting 2018.

Another industry executive, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told Defense News that Paul Livingston, the boss of Ascent Flying Training, would not have allowed himself to be a guest of any bidder had the competition still been in play.

“His presence appears to be a clear signal that Airbus has won the contest and that an announcement is likely to be imminent,” he said.

Ascent declined to comment but confirmed Livingston was at the May 18 dinner in London. Airbus also declined to comment.

Airbus Helicopters is one of two concerns that since 2013 have been competing for a £500 million ($725 million) deal to provide and support a fleet of helicopters for the next 17 years.

Owned by Lockheed Martin and Babcock, Ascent has a 25-year private finance initiative deal with the Ministry of Defence (MoD) to train all British helicopter and fixed-wing crews in a program known as the military flying training system.

Ascent’s website says it expects the rotary wing deal to be signed in early 2016 and begin training of students on the new platforms in 2018.

UK Defence Secretary Calls on NATO Members to Spend More on Military

UK Defense Secretary called on NATO countries to spend at least two percent of their GDP on defense needs as required by alliance.

LONDON (Sputnik) – UK Defence Secretary Michael Fallon called on NATO countries to spend at least two percent of their gross domestic product (GDP) on defense needs as the alliance requires.






"The 2 per cent target is vital for the security of all NATO countries. That’s why we’ve committed to it and why we want all members to do the same," Fallon said Thursday as quoted by the country’s Defence Ministry.
On Thursday, Fallon met with his Romanian counterpart Mihnea Motoc.
"Romania is a key NATO ally. I welcome its increase in defence spending and look forward to deepening our defence relationship," the UK minister said.
According to a NATO report, only five of its members out of 28, including the United Kingdom, met the goal of spending 2 percent of GDP on defense in 2015.

Airbus Helicopters fournira 32 appareils au UK Military Flying Training System





Dans un post de novembre 2014, je me demandais "qui, de Cobham, Airbus Helicopter ou Elbit, va fournir et entretenir une flotte d'hélicoptères d'entraînement pour le compte d'Ascent Flight Training, la co-entreprise entre Babcock et Lockheed-Martin qui gère depuis 2008 le Military Flying Training Systems?" (lire ici).

La réponse est tombée: c'est Airbus Helicopters.

L'équipementier l'a confirmé ce vendredi matin: "Airbus Helicopters a été sélectionné par Ascent comme fournisseur de services aéronautiques dans le cadre du Système de formation des pilotes militaires du Royaume-Uni (UK Military Flying Training System — UKMFTS). Selon les termes de ce contrat évalué à 500 millions de livres sterling sur 17 ans, Airbus Helicopters livrera des hélicoptères et une solution de soutien intégrée pendant une période de 18 mois, le début de la formation étant prévu en avril 2018."



Airbus Helicopters fournira une flotte d’hélicoptères H135 (29 appareils) et H145 (3 appareils) capables d’assurer chaque année les 28 000 heures de formation requises dans le cadre du contrat entre le MoD et Ascent Flight Training.

Ex ASKARI STORM 2016 – 1 RGR in Kenya

19th May 2016 admin 1 RGR




1 RGR deployed to Kenya to conduct Exercise ASKARI STORM. The Battlegroup (BG) consisted of A, B, SP and HQ Companies and a Company from The Royal Welsh who acted as C Coy in the BG. There were also a few attachments from the Brigade such as a Fire Support Team (FST), Royal Military Police (RMP), the Queen’s Gurkha Engineers (QGE) and medics. Soldiers from The Welsh Guards acted as COEFOR (enemy troops) throughout the exercise. The exercise was divided into three phases.

Phase 1 (Warrior) The Coys carried out live firing up to Platoon level and also conducted Key Leadership Engagements and Strike Ops.


Key Leader Engagements

Phase 2 (Centurian): This phase was divided into 3 parts and tested 1 RGR Gurkhas at Company level.  The duration of each phase was 36 hours.

First was the Enabling Lane. The mission was to deliver humanitarian aid to a village where the local people had suffered badly from following an invasion from the made-up enemy. In order to get aid to the village, the Coys had to lay a bridge at a crossing point and defeat any hasty enemy positions. They then carried out a subsequent Strike Op onto the acting enemy position.

Then came the Defensive Lane. The mission for the Coys was to  stop enemy forces infiltrating past them to the North of their Area of Operations.Defensive Operations



Thirdly was the Field Firing Lane. The mission for this operation was to conduct deliberate attacks against the acting enemy. The enemy were in two main defensive locations surrounded by manmade and natural defensive obstacles such as barbed wire and mine fields.


Gurkha about to use the Anti-Tank Weapon NLAW

Phase 3 was The Final Exercise. This was conducted as a full Battlegroup. which included an Advance-to-Contact, Deliberate Attacks, and Defensive Operations.  The days were long and challenging and in the heat of Kenya it was really hard work.  The soldiers worked extremely hard and the Battlegroup conducted all operations to a very high standard.


Commanding Officer 1 RGR delivering orders

On the whole, 1 RGR had a fantastic exercise and thanks all those who came to support and work alongside 1 RGR during this invaluable, tough yet exciting training. The Gurkhas as ever loved being in Kenya and operating in such beautiful scenery with such a wide array of interesting wildlife.

Le groupe français iXBlue fournira 70 systèmes de navigation inertielle à la Royal NavyPosté dans Forces navales, Technologie par Laurent Lagneau Le 21-05-2016







Pour naviguer, le système GPS est généralement utilisé, tant par les civils que les militaires. Seulement, il présente quelques défauts dans la mesure où ses signaux, peuvent être brouillés, voire piratés.

En outre, il ne fonctionne pas sous l’eau. Et comme il n’est pas question pour un sous-marin de faire surface pour capter un signal GPS, la solution passe par l’utilisation de systèmes de navigation inertielle. D’où le contrat obtenu le 18 mai par le groupe français iXBlue auprès de la Royal Navy.

Ainsi, ce dernier fournira en effet 70 systèmes MARINS M7 à la marine britannique, afin d’équiper 35 navires, dans le cadre de son programme de renouvellement des gyrocompas (Navigation Compass Program).

Ces systèmes MARINS M7 remplaceront les équipements inertiels obsolètes des frégates de type 23, des navires de lutte contre les mines des classes Hunt et Sandown ainsi que les sous-marins nucléaires d’attaque et lanceurs d’engins (SNA et SNLE) Trafalgar et Vanguard. Ils seront intégrés à bord de ces bâtiment par Lockheed Martin UK.

« Le choix du système de navigation inertielle MARINS d’iXBlue pour équiper les porte-avions de la classe Queen Elizabeth ainsi que le quatrième sous-marin nucléaire d’attaque du type Astute a constitué les premières étapes vers l’adoption, par le Ministère de la Défense britannique, du gyroscope à fibre optique d’iXBlue (FOG) », rappelle le groupe français.

« Le MARINS M7 est, à l’heure actuelle, le système de navigation le plus performant sur le marché : il permet d’atteindre une dérive de moins d’1 Nm en 72 heures de navigation, en surface ou en plongée, au sein d’environnements où les signaux GNSS sont inaccessibles », a-t-il encore fait valoir.

« Nous avons mené une étude exhaustive sur l’ensemble des partenaires possibles et leurs technologies spécifiques. Après avoir compris précisément quelles étaient les attentes de la Royal Navy, et après prise en compte de son avis sur les principaux fournisseurs du secteur, il nous est apparu très clairement que les solutions d’iXBlue étaient celles qui répondaient le mieux aux besoins de la marine britannique, en termes de performance, de capacité et de coût », a expliqué Robert Kramer, vice-président de Lockheed Martin UK – Integrated Systems.

Peu connu du grand public, le groupe iXBlue a connu un fort développement au cours des 4 dernières années, avec une croissance à deux chiffres, une taille multipliée par deux et la création de 200 emplois. Enfin, il réalise plus de 80% de son chiffre d’affaires à l’exportation.

UK begins in-flight refuelling trials of Voyager and F-35

Gareth Jennings, London - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
23 May 2016






The UK Royal Air Force (RAF) recently began in-flight refuelling clearance trials of its Airbus Defence and Space (DS) Voyager tanker-transport aircraft with the Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter.

The trials, which were announced on 20 May by the F-35 Joint Program Office (JPO), are taking place at Naval Air Station (NAS) Patuxent River in Maryland.

In all, some 20 flights will be flown through to mid-June between the three-point hose-and-drogue-equipped Voyager KC.3 tanker and the F-35B receiver, with both the Voyager's wingtip and fuselage refuelling stations being tested. The test flights will collect data which will result in F-35B refuelling certification later this year, which in turn will support the F-35 initial operating capability (IOC).

As noted by the JPO, the UK has 19 personnel embedded within the F-35 Development Test Program at NAS Patuxent River, many of whom are set to embark on a US Marine Corps amphibious vessel later this year for the third and final set of Development Test Sea Trials for the F-35B.

The UK currently has four pre-operational F-35B aircraft, which it uses for training and for operational test and evaluation with 17 (Reserve) Squadron. These are located at NAS Patuxent River, Edwards Air Force Base (AFB) in California, and at Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Beaufort, South Carolina.

As the first operational unit, 617 Sqn will shortly stand up at MCAS Beaufort before transferring home to Royal Air Force (RAF) Marham in 2018. In December of that year IOC - Land will be declared for the F-35B force. The second unit - the Fleet Air Arm's 809 'Immortals' Naval Air Squadron (NAS) - will be created ahead of the start of sea trials aboard the new HMS Queen Elizabeth in 2018, with the full operating capability (FOC - Land and Maritime) for the type being declared in 2023.

Britain to Name Contractor for Testing Laser Weapon
Andrew Chuter, Defense News 2:36 p.m. EDT May 25, 2016



GLENROTHES, Scotland — Britain is set to take its first major step toward fielding a laser directed energy weapon next month when the Ministry of Defence is due to select a contractor to build a technology demonstrator to validate the system.

MoD officials could select a winning contractor to build the demonstrator as early as June 3, ‎according to Andy Rhodes, a business development executive at Raytheon UK, told reporters during a briefing at the company's plant here.

‎Raytheon is part of a Babcock-led consortium vying for the deal in a competition which also includes MBDA, Lockheed Martin, Thales UK and Rheinmetall.

The Babcock team also includes Leonardo-Finmeccanica (Selex) supplying the optronics and a Qinetiq developed laser.

Qinetiq is thought to be supplying its laser to at least three of the contenders for the competition being run by the governments defense laboratory DSTL.

UK special forces have destroyed two Daesh vehicles with explosives in Libya, The Times reports.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Earlier this month, reports emerged that Italian and British special troops were ambushed by Daesh militants in Libya. The media reports came soon after UK Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said that London had no plans to deploy ground combat forces to Libya, but could provide the country with training or technical support.

My unit works just with English. I have met with them personally and they have destroyed two suicide vehicles that were targeting my fighters," commander of troops in Misrata Mohammed Durat told The Times on Thursday.
According to the newspaper, the attack helped stop Daesh advance on the city of Misrata and is the first evidence that UK soldiers are fighting against Daesh militants in Libya.
Libya has been in a political and security vacuum since the 2011 Arab Spring uprising and the ouster of the North African nation’s long-time leader Muammar Gaddafi. Last December, a unity government was eventually mediated by the UN between the two rival governments, in Tripoli and Tobruk.
The instability in the country has created a political and security vacuum that was largely filled by Islamist militants.

British Army report calls for more robust response to Russia
Tim Ripley, London - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
03 June 2016

"Substantial" NATO ground forces, backed by armour, should be dispatched to the Baltic states and Poland to provide a credible defence against a massive Russian conventional assault, according to the report of a study day involving senior British Army officers.

The report, dubbed "Is it time for the West to wake up and smell the vodka?", was posted on the British Army's website in May and comes as the three Baltic states - Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania - jointly requested NATO to beef up its defence capability on their territory.

The request from the Baltic states is expected to be high up the agenda at the NATO heads of government meeting in Warsaw on 8-9 July.

The head of the British Army, General Nick Carter, and more than a dozen other senior British Army officers, including the army's head of strategy, Major General Mark Carleton-Smith, and Major General Patrick Sanders, commander of British Army's deployable rapid reaction division, as well as academic experts were present at the study day at the British Army's Centre for Historical Analysis and Conflict Research (CHACR) that looked at how to respond to a resurgent Russia.

The report from the day says NATO needs to develop responses beyond establishing rapid reaction forces at high readiness to deploy to Baltic States in time of crisis and conducting regular exercise along the alliance's eastern border. This response followed Russia's use of 'hybrid warfare' in Crimea and eastern Ukraine.

"The decisive factor over the past few years has not been the strength of 'hybrid warfare', or any Russian overall military advantage, but the absence of western forces on the spot and in particular the lack of a credible threat to use them," said the report of recent events in Crimea and eastern Ukraine. "Moscow could have been stopped by early action.

UK F-35 training set for equal synthetic/live split

Charles Hollosi, London - IHS Jane's International Defence Review
06 June 2016




The United Kingdom's nascent joint Royal Air Force (RAF)/Royal Navy Lockheed Martin F-35B Lightning Force is planning to achieve a 50:50 balance between live and synthetic training as the aircraft comes into service towards the end of this decade.

Speaking at the F-35 conference at ITEC 2016, Lightning Force commander Air Commodore Harvey Smyth emphasised the need for this balance to exploit the capabilities of the aircraft against the high-end threats it has been procured to counter. These include some mission sets that are new to the United Kingdom and the aircraft's inherent capability to perform mission simultaneity (the F-35 exploiting its sensors for intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition, and reconnaissance [ISTAR] while the pilot carries out a defensive counter-air mission, for example).

According to Air Cdre Smyth the move to the new training balance is "there already from a cultural point of view. … We are already well on the synthetic journey, certainly in combat air." The Panavia Tornado force currently has a 65/35 split between live and synthetic training, while the Eurofighter Typhoon force has been trialling an approach that sees crossover pilots converting from other types going through the Operational Conversion Unit in the simulator before going to their front-line squadron for live flying without having touched the aircraft before. This approach has also been trialled with ab initio pilots and combat-ready workup for front-line aviators "so there's work going on as to how far we can go in the sim and what we can get out of it," Air Cdre Smyth explained.

The focus for F-35 is to create flexible training syllabi that can be tested and adjusted to take into account new tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) as an adversary changes its way of operating. The new generation of pilots coming through the training pipeline that will operate the F-35 will facilitate this through their familiarity and comfort with today's technology.

UK Running 'Secret' Program to Develop Nuclear Weapons

A new report claims Britain's Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE) is 'secretly' working on a program to upgrade the current UK Trident warhead to give it more destructive power, despite the country's long-term commitment to reduce nuclear proliferation.

According to the Nuclear Information Service (NIS) — an independent body which works to promote public awareness and foster debate on nuclear disarmament — AWE is currently working on a program to upgrade the current UK Trident warhead to the 'Mark 4A' modified warhead, which will have increased accuracy and destructive power and an extended lifetime.

Royal Navy In Hot Water As Engines of Britain's Flagship £1bn Destroyers Break Down In Middle of Sea (excerpt)
(Source: Daily Record; posted Jun 7, 2016)
By Torcuil Crichton
The Royal Navy’s fleet of Type 45 destroyers are breaking down because their engines cannot cope with the Persian Gulf’s warm waters.

Rolls-Royce are blaming extremes of temperature in the Middle East for the repeated power outages that have left Britain’s best fighting ships without propulsion or weapons systems.

Six Clyde-built Type 45 destroyers need work expected to cost tens of millions of pounds after a string of power failures.

If it is not done, the vessels could be left as sitting ducks in battle if the UK is in a major conflict at sea again.

A Whitehall source said: “We can’t have warships that cannot operate if the water is warmer than it is in Portsmouth harbour.

“These ships have to have a global reach and it looks as if the engineering has compromised them.”

The cost of refits over several years is believed to be one of the factors behind the delay in beginning orders for the Type 26 frigates planned for BAE Systems’ yards on the Clyde.

Representatives of the Unite union, BAE Systems and Rolls-Royce are due in front of the Commons defence committee today to answer questions on the Type 26 and Type 45 procurement. (end of excerpt)
