anteprima Il Pentagono approva la vendita di F-15QA al Qatar 15-06-2017

Nonostante le tensioni delle ultime settimane - derivanti dal sostegno dichiarato dal Presidente Trump all’iniziativa saudita volta all’isolamento diplomatico del Qatar per il suo supporto ad Al Qaeda, ai Fratelli Musulmani e, più recentemente, al non allineamento alla politica anti-iraniana dei sauditi - il Pentagono ha dato il via libera per l’acquisto da parte del piccolo emirato di 36 caccia multiruolo F-15QA per 12 miliardi di dollari (via FMS), numero dimezzato rispetto a quello approvato dal Congresso lo scorso novembre (72 F-15 per 21,1 miliardi).

anteprima BAE Systems completes Saudi Typhoon deliveries 13-06-2017

BAE Systems has handed over the last 2 Eurofighter TYPHOON in single-seater configuration to Saudi Arabia as the British aerospace giant has completed a delivery to the Gulf country including 72 Tranche 2 aircraft ordered in 2007 under a 41 billion dollars contract. The original program included the supply of the first 24 aircraft directly from BAE Systems and the assembly of the remaining 48 units on a local basis at a line to be established at Alsalam Aircraft Company (a joint venture between Boeing, Saudi Arabian Airways and Saudi Advanced Industries Company). However, the limits of the local industry and the obvious issues over the safeguarding of informations between BAE Systems and Boeing had wrecked the project and all the aircraft were manufactured at Warton. BAE Systems, thanks to the TORNADO and Eurofighter programs, employs more than 5.000 people in the Kingdom. BAE Systems and Saudi Arabia have been currently negotiating the purchase of a second tranche of 48 aircraft – Tranche 3 standard aircraft with AESA CAPTOR-E radar and CFTs - but the continuously announced deal has still failed to materialise.
