“GMLRS is a combat proven precision-strike system,” said Ken Musculus, vice president of Tactical Missiles for Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control. “We are confident that the new GMLRS Alternative Warhead will also provide reliable, highly accurate capability for our domestic and international customers.”

Included in the contract is a U.S. government Foreign Military Sale of GMLRS Unitary rockets to Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates.

GMLRS is an all-weather rocket designed for fast deployment that delivers precision strike beyond the reach of most conventional weapons. GMLRS Unitary rockets greatly exceed the required combat reliability rate and have established a reputation for affordability.

The Alternative Warhead is designed to engage the same target set and achieve the same area-effects requirement as the old MLRS submunition warheads, but without the lingering danger of unexploded ordnance. MLRS rockets with submunition warheads ended production approximately seven years ago.

In combat operations, each GMLRS rocket is packaged in an MLRS launch pod and is fired from the Lockheed Martin HIMARS orM270 family of launchers. GMLRS customers include the U.S., France, Germany, Italy, U.K., Japan, Jordan, Singapore, Bahrain and the UAE.

Production on the contract will be carried out at Lockheed Martin’s award-winning facility in Camden, Arkansas. Lockheed Martin has produced more than 25,000 GMLRS rockets at Camden, which has received more than 60 awards over the last decade, including the 2012 Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award and the Shingo Silver Medallion Award for Operation Excellence.

Bahrain rejects report on buying Israeli air-defence system

Bahrain’s Minister of Information Affairs and Minister of Representatives’ and Shura Council Affairs, Mr. Isa Abdulrahman Al Hammadi, has rejected the recent reports according to which the country would be one of the buyers of the Israeli-made Iron Dome air and missile defence system.




Based on the Sky News and the Fox News reports, which quoted a Bahraini Ministry of Foreign Affairs statement, the Gulf Cooperation Council countries, including Bahrain, were considering the procurement of an Israeli-made air-defence system to counter the Iranian threat. According to the same sources, the US Government was allegedly promoting the project.

However, Mr. Al Hammadi informed the Bahraini daily newspaper “Al Wasat”, that the country’s Ministry of Foreing Affairs has contacted Fox News and demanded a correction of the statement. According to the Minister of Information, “the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) states are looking into buying an anti-missile defense system from the United States, and there are no attempts whatsoever to purchase the system from Israel as claimed by the television channel”.

Bahrain shows interest to purchase Russian Pantsir-S1 short-range air defense system.

Russia and Bahrain may sign an intergovernmental agreement on military cooperation in 2016, Russian Ambassador to Bahrain Vagif Garayev said on Wednesday, October 28, 2015.



"Both parties have almost agreed the text of the document," he said.

The document, which both countries are preparing, should lay the basis for intergovernmental security cooperation. In particular, the document focuses on such issues as the training of peacekeeping forces and military personnel, visits of official military delegations and the joint struggle against global terrorism.

The agreement is expected to be signed as early as 2016.

It was reported earlier that Russia and Bahrain had signed an intergovernmental agreement on military and technical cooperation.

In 2014, Bahrain became the first foreign state to purchase the Russian-made anti-tank missile system Kornet-EM. Bahrain also showed interest in purchasing the Russian-made antiaircraft missile-gun system Pantsir-S1.

The Pantsir-S1 (SA-22 Greyhound NATO code name) is an air defense missile-gun system designed to protect vital small-size and big military areas, industrial targets and land forces units and reinforced the air defense units responsible for the protection of troops and military installations against precision-guided air attack from low and extreme low altitudes.

The armament of Pantsir-S1 consists of twelve 57E6 surface-to-air guided missiles and two 2A38M30-millimetre automatic guns developed from the two-barreled 30mm GSh-30 gun.

Un F-16 bahreïni s’est écrasé en Arabie Saoudite, près de la frontière avec le Yémen


Posté dans Forces aériennes, Moyen-Orient par Laurent Lagneau Le 30-12-2015




Un chasseur-bombardier F-16 de la Royal Bahraini Air Force s’est écrasé, ce 30 décembre, dans la province de Jazan (sud-ouest de l’Arabie Saoudite), près de la frontière avec le Yémen, où une coalition arabe emmenée par Riyad est aux prises avec les rebelles chiites Houthis, soutenus par l’Iran et alliés aux partisans de l’ex-président yéménite Ali Abdallah Saleh.

Selon un communiqué de cette coalition, l’appareil a été victime d’un « problème technique ». Son pilote a été retrouvé sain et sauf.

L’état-major des forces bahreïnies a confirmé ces informations, en précisant que le F-16 en question remplissait « une obligation nationale dans la défense des frontières méridionales » de l’Arabie Saoudite et qu’un enquête avait été ouverte.

Il s’agit du deuxième avion de combat perdu par la coalition au cours de son opération « Restaurer l’espoir », laquelle a succédé, en avril, à celle appelée « Tempête décisive ».

En mai, un F-16 marocain s’était en effet écrasé au Yémen dans des circonstances qui n’ont pas encore totalement été élucidées. Les rebelles Houthis affirmèrent avoir abattu l’appareil tandis que la coalition assura qu’il avait été victime d’un problème technique ou d’une erreur de pilotage.

Cela étant, la perte du F-16 de la Royal Bahraini Air Force est survenue après l’annonce du décès de 3 militaires bahreïnis (2 capitaines et 1 sergent) lors d’un « incident à la frontière sud de l’Arabie Saoudite ». Aucune autre précision n’a été donnée. Au total, Bahreïn déplore de 8 de ses soldats depuis le début de l’intervention de la coalition arabe au Yémen.

La Royal Bahraini Air Force dispose d’une petite vingtaine d’avions F-16C/D Block 40 (dont 4 destinés à l’entraînement) qui seront prochainement modernisés ainsi que de 8 F-5E de conception ancienne. Il est question pour Manama d’acquérir des Eurofighter Typhoon.

Bahrain considering F-16V order, fleet upgrade



lol!


Citation :
Bahrain is nearing a decision on whether to launch a major programme to modernise its Lockheed Martin F-16s and acquire an additional batch in an advanced V-model configuration.

Facing increased operational demand due to its involvement in the coalition campaign against Islamic State militants in the Middle East, the Royal Bahraini Air Force is looking to boost capabilities, says Rick Groesch, regional vice-president, Middle East for Lockheed Martin Aeronautics.

“They are thinking about upgrading their airplanes – we have been in discussion for a while,” Groesch told Flightglobal during the Bahrain International Airshow.

Bahrain is nearing a decision on whether to launch a major programme to modernise its Lockheed Martin F-16s and acquire an additional batch in an advanced V-model configuration.

Facing increased operational demand due to its involvement in the coalition campaign against Islamic State militants in the Middle East, the Royal Bahraini Air Force is looking to boost capabilities, says Rick Groesch, regional vice-president, Middle East for Lockheed Martin Aeronautics.

“They are thinking about upgrading their airplanes – we have been in discussion for a while,” Groesch told Flightglobal during the Bahrain International Airshow.

Modernising Bahrain’s in-service fleet to the F-16V standard would include the integration of an active electronically scanned array sensor, already identified as Northrop Grumman’s scalable agile beam radar. With the US government, the progamme would also add precision-guided weapons, such as from Boeing’s joint direct attack munition series, and Lockheed’s Sniper targeting pod.

In parallel with the upgrade, the service could also acquire “17 or 18” new-build F-16Vs, Groesch says. These would differ through the installation of conformal fuel tanks, which he notes would enable the assets to operate with more weapons beneath the wing, in place of 370gal fuel tanks.

Confirming Bahrain has asked for pricing, availability and schedule data about a potential deal via the Foreign Military Sales framework, Groesch says: “In early February we will start to discuss the request with the US government. Bahrain has seen the need to get this going, due to the operational tempo now.”

Groesch says the lead aircraft involved in an upgrade would undergo modification and flight test in Bahrain with Lockheed, and subsequent examples would receive the enhancements with the assistance of the nation's air force.

Flightglobal’s Fleets Analyzer database records the Royal Bahraini Air Force’s inventory as including 16 F-16Cs and four D-model trainers, after a single-seat example was destroyed in a non-fatal accident in Saudi Arabia.

If concluded, the deal with Bahrain would enable Lockheed to extend production of the F-16 beyond 2017.

“We’re talking to several other customers at the moment,” about possible upgrades or purchases says Groesch, who identifies Jordan as having a near-term requirement to modernise its inventory.

Two years ago, details emerged of a possible deal to supply the United Arab Emirates with additional F-16s in an upgraded Block 60 configuration, along with a modernisation activity for its current examples. A deal has yet to be signed, but Groesch confirms: “We’re still talking to them about that.”

Separately, Bahrain has yet to confirm an intention to replace its remaining 12 Northrop F-5E/Fs. With the Eurofighter Typhoon considered a leading contender for such a requirement, campaign lead BAE Systems exhibited a full-scale replica and had a simulator on show at the 21-23 January event, staged at Sakhir air base.

Bell mounts AH-1Z sales offensive in Bahrain




Citation :
Bell Helicopter used the Bahrain International Airshow to promote the capabilities of its AH-1Z to the nation’s military, which already operates the manufacturer’s legacy Cobra attack rotorcraft.


The Royal Bahraini Air Force has a long-held requirement to replace its aged fleet of 30 AH-1s (below), and late last year formally requested information on the availability of the Z-model “Viper”.

“An LoR [letter of request] for LoA [letter of acceptance] was submitted last October,” confirms Bell’s military business development manager Scott Clifton. While this marks a relatively early stage in any potential procurement sought through Washington’s Foreign Military Sales mechanism, he adds: “Everything from the US government so far is positive.”

Bell – which produces the AH-1Z and 85%-common UH-1Y utility helicopter for the US Marine Corps – has so far secured one international customer for the former. Pakistan early last year concluded a roughly $950 million deal to buy 15 examples for its army.

Referring to the sales opportunity in Bahrain, Clifton notes: “They are familiar with Bell products, and we would create an entire system to ensure customer success on day one.” This would include personnel training, in-service support and spare parts. Beyond its status as a Cobra user, the nation’s air force would also benefit from fielding an attack helicopter optimised for use in a saltwater environment, he adds.

“There is another Gulf state that is interested – and their interest helps Bahrain,” Clifton says, without identifying the nation in question. Existing operators of the legacy AH-1 in the region include Jordan.

Clifton describes the AH-1Z as the leading candidate to meet Bahrain’s needs, but tells Flightglobal: “They have their options open.” The nation has also shown interest in the Turkish Aerospace Industries-developed T129, which appeared at the same show in 2014.

Neither of the candidates was brought to the 21-23 January event – staged at Sakhir air base near Manama – but Bell’s exhibit included a simulator for the combat-proven type.


Flightglobal’s Fleets Analyzer database records Bahrain as having 22 AH-1E/Fs, plus eight P-model examples assigned to a training role. It is unclear how many replacement aircraft it is likely to seek.

Bahreïn veut plus de F-16 !





Le royaume du Bahreïn veut acquérir plus de Lockheed-Martin F-16 pour un montant estimé à près de 2,8 milliards de dollars. Ces appareils devront venir remplacer la vieille flotte de 16 Northrop F-5 E/F « Tiger II » encore en service.

Modernisation de la Force aérienne :

La Royal Air Force de Bahreïn est entrée dans une importante phase de modernisation concernant sa flotte d’avions de combat Lockheed-Martin F-16 en service depuis 1990. La première étape de la modernisation de la Force aérienne, concerne la mise à jour de la flotte de 20 F-16C/D actuellement en service. La modernisation comprend l’ajout d’un radar SABR de Northrop-Grumman de type AESA. L’Emirat va doter ses F-16 de missile AIM-120D «AMRAAM», de l‘AIM-9X «Sidewinder» ainsi que du pod de désignation laser «SNIPER» afin de pouvoir tirer des bombes à guidage de précision. L’avionique est également modernisée avec l’ajout d’une liaison16 (Link16). Les quatre premiers chasseurs modernisés vont d'être remis en service à la fin de cette année.

La seconde phase :

Le second objectif de la modernisation vise le remplacement des 16 Northrop F-5E/F «Tiger II» en service par un appareil de combat multirôle. Trois appareils étaient en compétition, l’Airbus DS Eurofighter «Typhoon II», le Dassault Rafale et Lockheed-Martin avec le F-16E/F «Viper». C’est ce dernier qui a été retenu, principalement dans un but d’homogénéité de la flotte et en raison de son prix très avantageux.

Une vente pas encore totalement acquise :

Pourtant, cette vente qui concerne 19 Lockheed-Martin F-16 « Viper » n’est pour l’instant pas complétement acquise pour l’avionneur américain. En effet, l'administration Obama semble vouloir joindre une condition à celle-ci, concernant l’amélioration des droits de l'homme au sein de l'allié du Golfe.

Pour le porte-parole de Lockheed-Martin, cette demande est inacceptable, car en cas de blocage l’Emirat n’hésitera pas à aller se fournir ailleurs en avions de combat et ceci sans autre cas de moralité. De plus. Cette vente est particulièrement importante pour le maintien de la ligne de production du F-16.
