Rappel du premier message :

Citation :
« J'aime les USA, et je combats pour elle», c'est ainsi que Lamia Lahlou commente son adhésion à l'armée américaine, et sa participation à la guerre contre l'iraq- depuis déjà 8 mois-. Née au Maroc en 1986, Lamia Lahlou rejoint l'armée américaine 3 ans après les attentats du 11 septembre 2001.

Tempérée par sa propre volonté, «la marocaine», ne mâche pas ses mots pour affirmer que ce pas emboité s'inscrit dans le cadre d'un «vrai Jihad». Rapporte une idéo diffusée largement sur Internet (Voir ci-aprés).

Choquée par la mort de sa meilleure amie, Lamia croit dur comme fer que l'adhésion à l'armée américaine est le seul et unique moyen susceptible de calmer le feu de sa vengeance.

A noter que les USA continuent à «renforcer » son armée via le recrutement des marocains, à l'heure où ALQIADIA ciblent d'autres recrues du Maroc vers la Hollande et la Belgique, tout en passant par la Syrie, l'Espagne et l'Iraq.

US Army trains with Capability Set 13 for Afghanistan deployment
29 April 2013
US Army soldiers from the 3rd Brigade Combat Team 10th Mountain Division (Light Infantry) are conducting training with the Capability Set 13 (CS 13) at Fort Drum in New York, US, to enhance readiness before deployment in Afghanistan.

CS 13 is an integrated tactical network designed to extend digital communications down to the lowest echelons. It will enable Security Forces Advise and Assist Team (SFAAT) units to support Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF) in taking responsibility for maintenance of security in the country.

ANSF will assume lead responsibility for operations, the CS 13's extended mobile network capabilities will help SFAAT personnel support with situational awareness and calls for air support, artillery support, medical evacuation, and other reach-back communications.

Commenting on the network. 3rd BCT commander colonel Sam Whitehurst said: "Having this capability, where I can take some of the capabilities to command and control the brigade on the move, gives us the ability to extend our reach, even as we reduce our presence."
CS 13 is an advanced, mobile communications network designed to help dismounted soldier or small units transmit voice/chat communications, text messages, MEDEVAC requests and situational awareness data across the BCT through use of advanced satellite-based systems.

It also equips brigade, battalion and company leaders with vehicles linked in to Warfighter Information Network-Tactical Increment 2, enabling commanders to leave respective command posts and issue orders, receive briefings and monitor latest intelligence.

Following the week-long, Mountain Peak training exercise, the BCT is scheduled to undergo a Joint Readiness Training Center (JRTC)rotation, which will feature SFAAT scenarios with role players acting as host nation army, police, civilians and enemy insurgents at Fort Polk in Louisiana, US.

EADS North America delivers 250th UH-72A Lakota helicopter to US Army
30 April 2013
EADS North America has handed over the 250th UH-72A Lakota light utility helicopter (LUH) under contract to the US Army for operation by the Oklahoma National Guard.

The helicopter represents the latest of 54 Lakotas that have been delivered with the security and support (S&S) battalion mission equipment package (MEP), which broadens its capabilities for missions ranging from disaster response to border security operations across the country.

UH-72A product manager army lieutenant colonel David Cheney said UH-72A Lakota helicopter programme is proceeding according to the original schedule, within budget and is better serving troops in the battlefield.

"The success of this aircraft and programme is a testament to EADS North America's team's determination to provide the best support for the army and homeland security missions," Cheney said.

EADS North America chairman and CEO Sean O'Keefe added: "In today's budget environment, the Pentagon needs programmes that deliver what's been promised, and we're proud to have worked with the army to field this capability unfailingly on schedule and on cost."

Equipped with a moving map, EO/IR sensor and digital video recording capability, digital and analogue downlink, and a searchlight, the MEP Lakotas are operated by the US Army National Guard for border security and drug interdiction missions along the US south-west border.

Manufactured at the company's American Eurocopter facility in Columbus, Mississippi, the twin-engine Lakota helicopters are used for medical evacuations, search-and-rescue, homeland security, VIP transport, disaster response and relief, combat flight training and pilot sustainment training.

As well as replacing the army's ageing OH-58 and UH-1 rotary-wing aircraft, Lakotas are expected to simultaneously enable UH-60 Black Hawks to participate in combat missions.

A total of 345 UH-72As are expected to be acquired by the army under a defence acquisition category (ACAT) I programme, which is scheduled to continue until 2016.

US Army orders Black Hawk medevac mission sensor from FLIR
20 May 2013
FLIR Systems has secured a contract for delivery of a medical evacuation (MEDEVAC) Mission Sensor (MMS) system for the US Army's UH-60A Black Hawk helicopters.

Under the terms of the $81m blanket purchase agreement, the company will supply unspecified units of MMS configuration of its commercially developed, military-qualified Talon thermal imaging system to the army.

The system, delivered under the initial $19m award, will be installed onboard both fielded and new Black Hawk MEDEVAC helicopters.

FLIR president and CEO Earl Lewis said: "Our highly advanced imaging systems enhance the efficient and safe location and transport of injured personnel and medics in the field.''

Equipped with an embedded inertial measurement unit / GPS and laser pointer / illuminator, Talon is a stabilised 9in multi-sensor gimbal system designed for surveillance, reconnaissance, target acquisition and tracking, force protection, and search-and-rescue (SAR) operations.
Capable of operating onboard a variety of fixed and rotary-wing aircraft, ships, small boats, and land vehicles, the system features up to six payloads simultaneously, with SMPTE digital video for all channels, therefore ensuring availability of high resolution images during day and low visibility conditions.

Powered by two General Electric T700-GE-701 engines, the UH-60A Black Hawk is a primary division-level transport helicopter, and can be readily modified to carry four litters through the removal of eight troop seats in the MEDEVAC role.

Several versions of Black Hawk helicopters are currently operated for tactical troop and equipment transport, command-and-control, SAR, armed escort, electronic warfare and executive transport missions by the US and 25 international militaries worldwide.

Manufacturing work is scheduled to be carried out at the company's facility in Billerica, Massachusetts, US, while deliveries are expected to be complete by 2014.

US Army trains with SpotterRF's man-portable radar
By Geoff Fein
5/20/2013
The US Army has been conducting mobile force protection training at the Utah Training Center Camp Williams using SpotterRF's man-portable radar system.

The company announced its participation in the training exercises on 14 May at the annual Special Operations Forces Industry Conference in Tampa, Florida. Earlier this year SpotterRF's M600C radar participated in the Stiletto Maritime Demonstration Program for the US Navy's Naval Expeditionary Combat Command.

During that demonstration held in late January off the coast of Virginia Beach, Virginia, a tripod-mounted M600C was set up remotely at the mouth of the harbour to track vessels ranging in size from jet skis to 11 m rigid inflatable boats. Tracks were communicated back over one mile to Stiletto using a Silva Radio. On board the M80 Stiletto maritime demonstration craft, tracks could be viewed in real-time on a map displaying location, distance, and speed of the target, SpotterRF said.

The radio is a multi-hop mesh network, Logan Harris, chief executive officer of SpotterRF, told IHS Jane's .

"In the case of the demonstration they were able to achieve a two-mile hop with one radio paired. That was an enabling factor for that particular exercise," he said.

US Army orders additional Exelis spiral enhanced night-vision goggles
23 May 2013
ITT Exelis has been awarded a modification contract for follow-on production and delivery of its spiral enhanced night-vision goggles (SENVGs) to the US Army.

Valued at $48m, the contract represents the second of two production year contract options awarded by the army for SENVGs delivery to boost troops' situational awareness during complex operations.

Covering a supply of more than 3,800 units, the first $49.5m contract option was secured by the company following completion and qualification of the SENVG in April 2012.

Exelis Night-Vision and Tactical Communications Systems president Nick Bobay said: "We understand the importance of the enhanced night-vision programme, and we are committed to delivering state-of-the-art technology to the US Army so soldiers can achieve mission success in any environment."
An upgraded version of the Exelis enhanced night-vision goggle (ENVG), SENVG is designed to provide soldiers with an ability to detect and identify potential threats, irrespective of the environmental conditions or obscuration in the battlefield.

Featuring an image intensified tube and infrared micro-bolometer, the goggles are also capable of accommodating further enhancements for the army's future network integration processes.

The NVG combines an image intensified tube and infrared micro-bolometer into a compact 2lb monocular, and is also capable of accommodating further enhancements to support the army's future network integration processes.

Additional features include a separate three battery pack to supply power for either helmet-mounted or hand-held use, easy-to-use controls, colour micro display, as well as a non-exit pupil forming eyepiece to help pilot maintain full field of view during vigorous physical movements.

The number of units ordered has not been disclosed by the company, which anticipates completing the deliveries in 2014.

US Army receives JPADS 10K system from Airborne Systems
23 May 2013
The US Army has taken delivery of the last 10,000lb joint precision aerial delivery system (JPADS 10K) under contract from Airborne Systems to enhance its ability to supply cargo to remote locations.

As part of an initial full-rate production contract awarded by the army in October 2007, the systems have been developed by the company based on its DragonFly-guided precision aerial delivery system.

Airborne Systems operations vice-president/general manager Dave Seifert said the systems have been delivered on time and according to strict military requirements.

"US Forces now have a system that will save lives by keeping service members out of harm's way," Seifert said.

Airborne Systems JPADS programme manager Aaron Mebust added: "The JPADS 10K is the second Type Classified JPADS purchased by the US Department of Defense, following the selection and purchase of the FireFly as the system of choice by the US Army's 2,000lb JPADS 2K programme."

Equipped with a fully elliptical ram air parachute canopy, DragonFly is a fully autonomous cargo delivery system capable of enhancing the soldier's mission readiness by accurately delivering 10,000lb cargo supplies to remote locations.
The system uses a GPS and an advanced guidance navigation and control algorithm for precise delivery of cargo in varying payload dimensions, from an altitude of 25,000ft within 150m of a designated impact point, to ensure ground troops safety.

Scheduled to be used by all services of the US Department of Defense, the system is capable of navigating more than 20km on its own prior to delivering cargo to a pre-programmed designated location.

To date, Airborne Systems has supplied more than 2,500 JPADS 2K and FireFly systems, and 250 JPADS 10K and DragonFly systems to the US and international militaries.

A joint US Army and Air Force programme, JPADS is designed to help combatant commanders maintain combat power by providing a high-altitude, precision airdrop system for use in the battlefield

General Dynamics to Deliver Army’s Newest Tactical Ground Station Intelligence System



By GeneralDynamics on Friday, May 24th, 2013

The U.S. Army awarded a contract to General Dynamics C4 Systems for 10 vehicle-mounted Tactical Ground Station (TGS) Lot D systems with an option for 11 additional systems.

The TGS system is part of the Distributed Common Ground System-Army (DCGS-A), the Army’s primary deployed system for posting, processing and distributing intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance information in real time to intelligence analysts and commanders


The order is valued at $31.5 million with all options exercised. The first of the new TGS systems is scheduled for delivery during the third quarter of 2013.

DCGS-A provides Army analysts with access to more than 600 data sources and allows rapid collaboration through shared data access. The General Dynamics-built TGS-Lot D systems allow analysts to comb through millions of classified and unclassified records within minutes, providing commanders with status updates on persons of interest and imminent threats such as improvised explosive devices.

The system is interoperable with other U.S. military, NATO and coalition ground systems, connecting intelligence analysts with information from national agencies, combatant commands, military intelligence brigades and tactical Army units.


“The TGS system finds the needle in the haystack and gives commanders an unprecedented ability to make informed decisions faster,” said Chris Marzilli, president of General Dynamics C4 Systems.

TGS systems have been widely deployed to forward operating bases worldwide, providing U.S. military and coalition soldiers with critical force protection intelligence that saves lives at the tactical edge.

The TGS Lot D procurement followed a full-and-open competition and includes TGS vehicle system integration, training materials, field service and support. The new TGS systems will deliver superior information processing capability, secure network communications and collaboration with other intelligence resources worldwide

Lockheed Martin successfully conducted first flight of GMLRS Guided Multiple Launch Rocket System.

Lockheed Martin [NYSE: LMT] successfully conducted the first Engineering, Manufacturing and Development (EMD) flight of the new Guided Multiple Launch Rocket System (GMLRS) Alternative Warhead at White Sands Missile Range, N.M.

Launched from a HIMARS mobile launcher, the GMLRS rocket flew 35 kilometers to the target, where the warhead detonated. This flight followed a successful ground-based test of the Alternative Warhead two weeks earlier.

“These tests are early indicators that we are on the right track in developing a warhead that meets the requirements defined by our armed forces, and that gives our Soldiers and Marines a distinct advantage on the battlefield,” said Scott Arnold, vice president of precision fires at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control.

The Alternative Warhead Program (AWP) is part of a U.S. Department of Defense plan to phase out submunitions, and is designed to achieve the same area-effects as the GMLRS submunitions warhead, but without the lingering danger of undetonated explosives.

The GMLRS Alternative Warhead is unitary and fits within the existing GMLRS architecture as a replacement for the Dual-Purpose Improved Conventional Munition warhead. The Alternative Warhead is being developed by ATK under subcontract to Lockheed Martin.

In April 2012, Lockheed Martin received a $79.4 million contract from the U.S. Department of Defense to develop AWP. Under the terms of the contract, the EMD phase of the program runs 36 months, focusing on system performance, warhead qualification and producibility.

US Army testing electronic attack capability for Gray Eagle
By Geoff Fein
5/24/2013
The US Army is conducting an operational assessment to explore the potential to equip a Gray Eagle unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) with an electronic attack (EA) capability. The US Army is currently operating the manned Beechcraft C-12 with an EA capability.

Raytheon, which makes the army's Communications Electronic Attack with Surveillance and Reconnaissance (CEASAR) system, is providing two electronic payloads to support the army's Networked Electronic Warfare Remotely Operated (NERO) system.

Testing has begun on the new capability and the first flight and the operational assessment will occur in Fiscal Year 2014, Colonel Charles Ekvall, chief of the US Army's electronic warfare division, told IHS Jane's .

Raytheon is only providing the system for the assessment. The army has not awarded any company a contract to provide NERO, Col Ekvall said.

"It's not a particular vendor's solution under a Gray Eagle UAV. As far as I am concerned, any vendor can provide the jamming capability. Currently, the Raytheon system is being considered because ultimately the NERO capability is a response to a warfighter's urgent request, and the army is already using the system on another deployed manned system known as CEASAR," he said.

The US Army Research, Development and Engineering Command (RDECOM) is planning to submit a proposal for the Special Operations Command's (SOCOM) tactical assault light operator suit (TALOS) development programme.

Issued on 15 May, the TALOS's request for information (RFI) seeks technology demonstration submissions from research and development organisations, private industry, individuals, government labs and academia in support of the command-directed requirement.

RDECOM science advisor assigned to SOCOM lieutenant colonel Karl Borjes said the proposal brings together a comprehensive family of systems, including an exoskeleton with innovative armour, displays for power monitoring, health monitoring, into a combat armour suit.

"It's advanced armour," Borjes said. "It's communications, antennas. It's cognitive performance. It's sensors, miniature-type circuits. That's all going to fit in here too."

Scheduled to be equipped with wide-area networking and onboard computers, TALOS is an advanced infantry uniform, designed to provide troops with superhuman strength with greater ballistic protection, and enhanced situational awareness in the battlefield.

The uniform will also feature a physiological subsystem embedded with sensors for effective monitoring of core body and skin temperature, heart rate, body position and hydration levels.

All participants, including RDECOM are set to submit a white paper summary of the way TALOS can be constructed using existing and emerging technologies by today (31 May).

The selected participants will demonstrate their respective technologies at SOCOM demonstrations, which are scheduled to be conducted at or near MacDill Air Force Base in Florida, US, from 8-10 July.

The primary goal of the demonstration is to identify technologies that can easily be integrated to form an initial capability within a year, while its secondary goal includes determination of the feasibility of fielding objective capabilities within three years.

Boeing conducts first test flight of US Army's EMARSS aircraft
4 June 2013
Boeing has completed the first test flight of the US Army's first enhanced medium altitude reconnaissance and surveillance system (EMARSS) engineering, manufacturing and development (EMD) aircraft at Beechcraft's facility in Wichita, Kansas, US.

Lasting for more than four hours, the test flight comprehensively validated the aircraft's aerodynamic handling qualities, systems performance and autopilot functions.

Carried out following ground tests that included a high-speed taxi trial, the testing represents a significant milestone forward on the path to limited user tests and the Milestone C low-rate initial production (LRIP) decision.

Based on a Beechcraft King Air 350ER aircraft, EMARSS is an airborne intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (AISR) system, designed to provide brigade combat teams (BCTs) with the ability to accurately detect and track surface targets day or night, in all weather conditions.

Primarily intended to function as a single platform in support of tactical missions, the manned, medium-altitude aircraft is also capable of contributing to the joint overall AISR constellation by offering connectivity to tactical and national networks in the battlefield.

Scheduled to be assigned to the US Army Intelligence and Security Command's (INSCOM) Aerial Exploitation Battalions (AEB), the aircraft will feature an electro-optic and infrared (EO/IR) full-motion video sensor (FMV), communications intelligence collection system, and aerial precision guidance system.

Additional features include line-of-sight tactical and beyond line-of-sight communications suites (LOS/BLOS), as well as a self-protection suite and two operator workstations.

Boeing is currently developing four EMARSS aircraft as part of a two-year EMD contract awarded by the army in December 2010, which also includes options for the development of an additional two aircraft and six LRIP units, as well as supply of logistical support services.

US Army awards LSFMA contract to SSAI
5 June 2013
Support Systems Associates (SSAI) has received a contract from the US Army for delivery of logistics and modification support services across its aviation platforms.

With an estimated ceiling value of up to $1.5bn over the next five years, the multiple award indefinite-delivery indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) logistics support facilities management activity (LSFMA) contract involves the team to support the aircraft modifications and provide other support and services.

Under the contract, SSAI will collaborate with BAE Systems to supply a wide range of support services across aviation platforms supported by the Program Executive Office (PEO) Aviation, Army Materiel Command (AMC)/Aviation and Missile Command (AMCOM).

BAE Systems Integrated Aviation Solutions vice-president Floyd McConnell said the company has demonstrated its commitment to the contract through the investments in Albertville and Huntsville, US, to improve on performance in 2012.

"We look forward to partnering with SSAI to support the US Army's aviation mission, which will increase employment in the local communities," McConnell said.

Services will include engineering development of aircraft modifications, application of modifications to the aircraft fleet, as well as logistics support of systems and aircraft amongst others.

Additional contract responsibilities include delivery of support services for aviation platforms operated by other US Government agencies and some foreign military sales (FMS) countries.

Work is scheduled to be carried out at SSAI's soon-to-be opened facility in Huntsville, Alabama, as well as BAE's hangar in Albertville, and offices in Huntsville, Alabama, US.

US Army soldiers prepare for Afghan deployment with C-RAM live fire drill
10 June 2013
US Army soldiers from B Battery, 2nd Battalion, 44th Air Defense Artillery (ADA) have conducted a counter-rocket, artillery and mortar (C-RAM) live-fire exercise at Thompson Hill Range at Fort Sill in Oklahoma, US.

Supervised by instructors and contractors from D Battery, 2nd Battalion, 6th ADA, the exercise forms part of a six-week pre-deployment certification aimed at preparing soldiers for C-RAM missions that are expected during their forthcoming deployment in Afghanistan.

An incoming C-RAM threat was successfully tracked and intercepted by a four-second burst from the Gatling-type gun during the exercise, which involved participation of around 60 44th ADA personnel, who are a mix of Avenger missile crewmembers, air defence battle management system operators, as well as radar repairers.

Culminating with a ten day live-fire training, the certification process trained 44th ADA personnel in operation of the C-RAM weapon system.

Commenting on the certification programme, B/2-44th, air and missile defense crewmembers team chief sergeant Orlando Rodriguez said the process made smooth progress as the soldiers were able to intercept every target that came toward them.A major difference from the Avenger system is the different procedures used by the C-RAM weapon system, Rodriguez added.

D/2-6th ADA academics section trainer sergeant 1st class Kleber Soriano said establishment of communication between the gun crew and the engagement operations cell proved to be one of the most challenging aspects of the certification process.

"They need to learn how to work together and know what each other does," Soriano added.

In addition to firing 75 20mm high explosives rounds per second with more than 80% kill probability of mortar round, the C-RAM system enables soldiers to perform pattern analysis of the threats, and relay the information to forward operating base's commander for subsequent action, Soriano stated.

Boeing awarded $4bn multi-year contract for Chinooks

The US Army and Boeing have signed a $4 billion multi-year contract for 177 CH-47F Chinook helicopters, in a deal that is expected to save the US government more than $800 million, the company says. But the total number of Chinooks built as part of the contract could rise to as many as 215, if the service exercises all of its options.

"This multi-year contract provides unprecedented savings for the US Army and American taxpayers," says Col Robert Barrie, the army's project manager for cargo helicopters.

The army has 241 F-model aircraft, and the new multi-year deal would eventually bring the CH-47F fleet total close to its goal of a 464-strong inventory. That figure includes an additional 24 Chinooks to replace "peacetime attrition" aircraft.

"The army is benefiting not only from the efficiencies of a multi-year contract, but also from the production efficiency gains Boeing and our suppliers have made," says Chuck Dabundo, Boeing's vice-president for cargo helicopter programmes.

Deliveries from this multi-year contract will begin in 2015, Boeing says.

A multi-year contract for the Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey tiltrotor is anticipated later this month

US Army receives M-DSA laser range finder for installation on Apache helicopter
11 June 2013
The US Army has taken delivery of the first modernised day sensor assembly (M-DSA) laser range finder designator (LRFD) system from Lockheed Martin for installation onboard its AH-64D/E Apache attack helicopter.

Representing the first phase of upgrades for the M-DSA programme, the modernised LRFD delivery is designed to mitigate obsolescence and also boost performance of the modernised target acquisition designation sight/pilot night-vision sensor (M-TADS/PNVS) system.

Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control M-TADS/PNVS programmes director Matt Hoffman said the delivery represented a successful team effort that offers significant benefit to the Apache pilot through system reliability, maintainability and performance.

"With more than 685 modernised LRFD kits on contract, this milestone signifies Lockheed Martin's ability to deliver on its commitment to supporting the soldier," Hoffman added.

US Army Apache sensors product manager lieutenant colonel Steve Van Riper said: "The US Army looks forward to a lasting relationship with the Lockheed Martin and Selex team; we anticipate continued success as we quickly ramp-up to our planned production rate and begin fielding."

Capable of designating an aim point by means of a laser for the Hellfire II missiles, M-DSA M-LRFD kits are designed to serve as the chief targeting aid for the Apache helicopter by establishing the range to target for accurate weapon aiming.

Second phase M-DSA upgrades are expected to add colour to the Apache cockpit display, in addition to enhancing situational awareness and communications with ground forces.

Also known as Arrowhead, M-TADS/PNVS is an advanced electro-optical fire control system designed to provide pilots with long-range, electro-optical precision engagement and flying targeting capabilities for conducting day, night and adverse-weather missions.

Operational with the army since 2005, the system also proved its capabilities during operations in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Treillis camouflés: le Sénat et la Chambre US veulent un unique type
US Army - Page 22 1087101070
Voilà qui pourrait bien mettre un terme aux projets de l'US Army de se doter d'un nouveau camouflage.
Cette semaine, les sénateurs puis les élus de la Chambre ont voté des propositions qui suggèrent que les forces armées américaines pourraient bien d'ici à octobre 2018 être dotées du même treillis, avec  le même camouflage. Finis le multicam des uns, les pixels des autres, le "blueberries" des marins: un seul dessin pour tous, avec des variantes dans les tons (désert, urbain etc).
Un peu de cohérence et des économies, voilà résumés les motifs des élus. Face à eux, deux écoles: les militaires qui admettent ces motifs et ceux qui, comme le Sergent Major Micheal Barrett, le sous-officier le plus haut gradé du corps des Marines, estiment que "l'uniforme donne des avantages spécifiques d'ordre tactique et psychologique". Barret s'est même fendu d'un communiqué pour défendre la spécificité du treillis des Marines: "Il fait partie de l'identité du Corps".
C'est pas gagné...

Viking Air to deliver third Guardian 400 aircraft to US Army
20 June 2013
Viking Air will hand over the final Twin Otter Guardian 400 aircraft under contract to the US Army this week in a ceremony at its facility in Murrieta, California, US.
Scheduled to be delivered following final acceptance inspection by the US Army Golden Knights Parachute Demonstration Team and Fixed Wing Project Office delegates, the aircraft is the third Guardian 400 aircraft ordered as part of a contract in February 2008.
The aircraft will now join the initial two aircraft currently being operated by the Golden Knights aircrew out of their base in Fort Bragg in North Carolina, US.
Delivery of the first aircraft took place in September 2012, following receipt of US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Type Certification in June that year.
Viking Air Operations executive vice-president Dan Tharp said the US Army has been a dedicated Twin Otter Series 400 customer from the outset of the programme, signing on as an initial launch customer and working with Viking as an integral member of the Series 400 steering committee.
"Viking greatly appreciates the relationship we have developed with the US Army over the past five years, and we hope to collaborate on future projects where the Twin Otter Series 400 is a suitable candidate for their requirements," Tharp said.
Designed to operate under the increased gross weight allowance of 14,000lb, the US Army Series 400 Twin Otters, officially designated as UV-18C, are primarily used in support of paratroop jumping activities.
An upgraded version of UV-18A, the aircraft features mission equipment specific to the Golden Knights parachute jumping requirements, including air-operable roll up door, external jump step and hand holds, crew relief station, as well as wall-mounted bench seating to accommodate 16 parachutists.
Twin Otter Series 400 aircraft is currently in service with 16 countries worldwide, including the Vietnamese Navy.

Army to eliminate 10 brigades at U.S. bases in drawdown: Odierno

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Army said on Tuesday it would eliminate 10 brigade combat teams at bases across the United States and cancel some $400 million in construction projects as it cuts about 80,000 soldiers over the next four years.

General Ray Odierno, the Army chief of staff, said the move was part of the largest organizational change in the Army since World War Two as the service winds down the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and responds to tighter U.S. budgets.

The Pentagon announced plans to cut the Army's overall force structure last year, but Odierno on Tuesday detailed where and how the service would reorganize as it draws down from a wartime high of 570,000 soldiers in 45 brigade combat teams to 490,000 in 33 brigade combat teams by the end of 2017. The reduction represents about a 14 percent drop in force size.

Odierno said the force would eventually drop to 32 brigades, but a decision had not yet been made on the final unit to be cut. He said as the 13 brigades are inactivated, some of the forces would be transferred to other brigades to make them "more lethal, more flexible and more agile."

"The army is ... reorganizing our brigade combat teams, which will reduce the overall number of headquarters while sustaining as much combat capability as possible," he said. "In other words, we're increasing our tooth-to-tail ratio."

While headquarters units would be eliminated, battalions of infantry, Stryker combat vehicles and armor would be shifted to other brigades along with engineering and artillery units, Odierno said.

The cuts mainly affect the active-duty force. The Army Reserve will remain at 205,000 soldiers and the state-based National Guard militia will lose 8,000 soldiers, dropping to 350,000 from 358,000.

Ten brigades would be inactivated in the United States and two in Europe. The two European brigades - both in Germany - had already been announced, one at Baumholder and the other at Grafenwohr.

Brigades would be inactivated at Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Washington, Fort Carson in Colorado, Fort Riley in Kansas, Fort Bliss and Fort Hood in Texas, Fort Polk in Louisiana, Fort Stewart in Georgia, Fort Campbell and Fort Knox in Kentucky, Fort Bragg in North Carolina and Fort Drum in New York.
The reorganization of the brigades in the United States and Europe will lead to a reduction of 29,000 soldiers, Army officials said. The remaining personnel reductions would come from other categories of troops, many of who were added temporarily because of the wars.

BUDGET CUTS
Odierno said the reductions in force size were in line with the $487 billion in defense spending cuts over the next decade that were included in the Budget Control Act of 2011, $170 billion of which would come out of Army funding.

The Budget Control Act also included an additional $500 billion in defense cuts unless Congress could agree on a compromise package of spending reductions or revenue hikes to replace them. So far Congress has been unable to agree on an alternative, and the additional cuts went into force this year.
Odierno said if the additional cuts continue in the coming years, the Army would have to look at reducing force structure again, possibly by as much as another 100,000 personnel from active duty, reserve and National Guard.

He said the Army had deferred $788 million in military construction projects while it was undertaking its review and would eventually permanently cancel about $400 billion worth of work.

Odierno said reorganization of the force followed extensive study, including 6,500 hours of simulated combat, evaluation of 34 different scenarios and a visit to 30 installations to look at the potential socio-economic impact.

Army to cut 10 BCTs, reorganize the rest

By Michelle Tan
Staff writer

The Army will cut 10 brigade combat teams over the next four years, bringing the number of active-duty BCTs to 33, Chief of Staff Gen. Raymond Odierno said Tuesday.

The affected BCTs are:

3rd BCT, 1st Armored Division, Fort Bliss, Texas

4th BCT, 82nd Airborne Division, Fort Bragg, N.C.

4th BCT, 101st Airborne Division, Fort Campbell, Ky.

3rd BCT, 4th Infantry Division, Fort Carson, Colo.

3rd BCT, 10th Mountain Division, Fort Drum, N.Y.

4th BCT, 1st Cavalry Division, Fort Hood, Texas

3rd BCT, 1st Infantry Division, Fort Knox, Ky.

4th BCT, 1st Infantry Division, Fort Riley, Kan.

2nd BCT, 3rd Infantry Division, Fort Stewart, Ga.

4th Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 2nd Infantry Division, Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash.

In addition to these 10 BCTs, which will be inactivated by the end of fiscal year 2017, the Army has already announced the inactivation of two BCTs in Germany — the 170th and 172nd BCTs.

In the future, another BCT, this one overseas, will be identified for inactivation, Odierno said, bringing the final number of BCTs to 32.

These cuts are part of what Odierno described as one of the Army’s largest organizational changes since World War II, and they are in line with the Army’s effort to shrink the active-duty force from about 560,000 to 490,000 as it transitions from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Odierno emphasized that these decisions are the result of the Budget Control Act of 2011, and not sequestration, which potentially could mean even deeper cuts.

The Budget Control Act required a mandatory $487 billion reduction in spending; the Army’s share of that between now and 2020 is $170 billion.

In addition to the cuts, the Army also will reorganize its remaining BCTs by adding a third maneuver battalion to its armored and infantry brigades. The BCTs also will receive additional engineer and fires capabilities, Odierno said.

This move enables the Army to retain 95 of its 98 combat battalions across the BCTs while eliminating headquarters and staff elements.

These changes will make the Army’s remaining BCTs “more lethal, flexible and agile,” he said.

Once the reorganization is completed, each BCT will have about 4,500 soldiers, nearly 1,000 more than they do in their current configuration.

Most soldiers from the 10 BCTs slated for inactivation likely will be absorbed into the remaining – and growing – BCTs. It also is likely, on an installation as large as Fort Bragg, for example, for most soldiers to be moved into new units without a permanent change of station.

The announcement of the Army’s sweeping reorganization ignited furious debate on Capitol Hill and in the communities that depend on nearby military installations as a key part of their economy.

Reaction from Capitol Hill was swift, with Senate Armed Services Committee (SASC) Ranking Member Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., saying the Army’s plan “[is] putting us so close to a hollow force that that’ll be the next announcement you hear.”

Asked by Defense News, a sister publication of Army Times, whether he and other senators will attempt to block the Army’s plans when the upper chamber takes up Pentagon policy and spending legislation later this year, Inhofe said, “We’ll do everything we can.”

As an elevator door closed between Inhofe and a reporter, he added: “It’s the last step in disarming America.”

SASC Chairman Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., an Obama administration ally, seemed resigned to the plan.

“I’m not sure they have much choice,” Levin said, citing defense spending caps etched in stone by the 2011 Budget Control Act. “They’ve got to find a way to implement the law that was passed by Congress.”

Levin chuckled lightly when informed of Inhofe’s intention to block the plan on the Senate floor.

Inhofe would “have to replace it,” Levin said, meaning any move to keep one or more of the 12 BCTs open would have to identify other defense or federal cuts to pay for it.

“That’s not only a lot of money; some people don’t recognize what we did here. Some people have said, ‘We haven’t done enough on spending.’ Well, [expletive] — excuse my language — this is kind of proof that we did a heck of a lot on spending.”

Other lawmakers, such as House Armed Services Committee member Rep. Doug Lamborn, R-Colo., were relieved that the cuts to installations in their states weren’t worse.

“I am very disappointed that Fort Carson is one of ten bases around the country that will lose a brigade combat team by the year 2017,” Lamborn said in a statement. “However, the blow is considerably softened by the fact that all but 750 of those soldiers will remain at Fort Carson and be reassigned to other missions.”

The Army anticipates that Fort Carson will actually increase in size by 1,800 active duty Army personnel in coming years.

With a military facility no longer in his district, House Armed Services Committee Ranking Member Rep. Adam Smith, D-Wash., was free to focus on the political moves needed to remove the defense spending caps and void sequestration.

“If sequestration is not removed, then more extensive force structure changes will need to be made to accommodate the severity of the sequester cuts,” he said in a statement.

Smith charged his fellow lawmakers, particularly Republicans, with making it “very difficult for the [Defense] Department to accommodate these cuts.

“Congress blocked each and every one of these attempts and has now forced the military to make a difficult choice: Maintain a larger force that will hollow out over time or convert to a smaller force,” Smith said. “Today’s announcement demonstrates that the Army chose the latter.”
