    "Según Lockheed Martin el F-35 está ‘totalmente disponible’ para Chile"

    "Las puertas están abiertas para que la FACh – cuando busque al sucesor de sus F-5 Tigre III en 2015 – considere como uno de los candidatos al moderno F-35. En esa cierra no existirá ninguna avión en el mercado con esas capacidades y los que cueste menos. Desde nuestro punto de vista, Chile es un país amigo y un cliente confiable. Por supuesto que estamos dispuestos a ayudar a la FACh en esa ruta si lo solicita."

    Del 'United States Air Force Air Power Review 2019' (pp.62-65); cómo será de insulsa y delicada la cafetera con alas que a un fuselaje con aprox. 6,000 horas encima le llaman "relativamente joven" y con bastante cuerda por delante, sin apuro de reemplazo en unidades como la siguiente:

    STINGERS
    The 112th FS ‘Stingers’ is one of the Air National Guard’s premier fighter squadrons, busy at home and abroad and helping to retain a wealth of experience that benefits the wider air force.

    ‘Stinger’ jets

    ‘Our F-16s are the lowest-hour examples in the CAF [Combat Air Forces]’, says 112th FS commander Lt Col Gregory ‘Liquor’ Barasch. While they aren’t the newest airframes in the fleet, they have the lowest service life with around 6,000 hours on the clock, and are set to remain on the guard’s books for many years to come.

    (...)

    Col Kevin Doyle, commander of the 180th FW, told the Yearbook, ‘Our Block 42 F-16s are relatively young and we expect to be able to fly those for an extended period of time. At the same time we are setting ourselves up to hopefully transition into a follow-on fighter, but we aren’t looking specifically at what that could be — it could be an F-35 or some other follow-on next-gen type of aircraft — but we are perfectly situated with the aircraft we have and the flight time left on them. We see ourselves being capable of flying them for 15-20 years if needed.’

    (...)

    In terms of enduring commitments, aerospace control alert (ACA) in support of NORAD (North American Aerospace Defense Command) drives much of the 112th’s operations. (...) To meet the ACA mission, USAF F-16s will be upgraded with the Northrop Grumman APG-83 Scalable Agile Beam Radar (SABR). ‘The AESA [active electronically scanned array] will be huge for us’, says Barasch. The upgrade plan is likely to see jets being rolled out simultaneously to the ACA ‘Viper’ squadrons to cover the immediate needs of the mission. ‘We hope to receive our first jet with the new radar around 2020’, adds Barasch.

    The fact that Toledo’s jets are so low-houred means that they will be well down the list for the F-16 service life extension program (SLEP) that the USAF has launched. This will increase the current 8,000-hour limit to 13,856 hours by modifying and repairing life-limiting safety of flight critical structures in up to 841 Block 40/42/50/52 F-16s.
    De la misma fuente, pp.89:

    AIRCRAFT AND SQUADRONS OF THE US AIR FORCE

    F-16C/D Fighting Falcon

    The F-16 fleet has received multiple upgrades that include the common configuration implementation program (CCIP). It provided enhanced mission capabilities and integrated a common avionics configuration on Block 40/42 and 50/52 fighters. More than 200 Block 50/52 and 420 Block 40/42 jets received the CCIP modifications between 2002 and 2011. The project upgraded the fighter’s avionics suite and provided numerous components including a new modular mission computer, color displays, common missile warning systems, advanced datalink IFF systems and the Joint Helmet-Mounted Cueing System (JHMCS).

    Modernization plans include a service life extension program (SLEP) that will extend the structural service life of 300 aircraft from 8,000 to around 12,000 equivalent flight hours (EFH). The Ogden Air Logistics Complex (OO-ALC)’s 573rd Aircraft Maintenance Squadron completed structural modifications on the initial aircraft at Hill AFB, Utah, in April 2018. Once the program reaches full production, the OO-ALC plans to complete each SLEP jet in nine months at a cost of $2.4 million. Ultimately, the project could modify, repair or replace life-limited airframe components on as many as 841 of the fighters.

    The USAF is replacing the AN/APG-68 mechanically scanned radar installed on Air National Guard F-16Cs that support the air defense mission with the Northrop Grumman AN/APG-83 Scalable Agile Beam Radar (SABR) active electronically scanned array (AESA) system. It initially awarded Northrop Grumman a $244-million contract to provide 72 systems. The ANG fighters make up 56 per cent of the nation’s aerospace control alert (ACA) righter force. The incorporation of an upgraded radar in as many as 300 F-16Cs remains under consideration. On September 30, 2018, the USAF fleet comprised 787 F-16Cs and 154 F-16Ds.

    The service also plans to equip the fleet with a new communications suite upgrade, a hybrid light control computer (HFLCC), auto ground collision avoidance system (AGCAS) and updated Link 16 multi-functional information distribution system-joint tactical radio system (MIDS-JTRS).


    Felices Fiestas a todos

    Parió Paula. El MoD búlgaro recomienda adquirir el F-16V para reemplazar sus obsolescentes MiG29:

    UPDATE 1-Bulgaria ready to choose F-16 fighter jets for its airforce

    OFIA, Dec 21 (Reuters) - Bulgaria’s defence ministry commission recommended on Friday that the government starts talks with the United States to buy new F-16 war planes to improve its compliance with NATO standards, the defence minister said on Friday.

    The United States, Sweden and Italy have filed bids to supply Bulgaria with eight fighter jets aimed at replacing its ageing Soviet-designed MiG-29s, in a tender estimated at 1.8 billion levs ($1.05 billion).

    “The acquisition of a new multipurpose fighter such as F-16V Block 70 from the United States, equipped with the latest generation radar and weaponry will improve significantly the combat capabilities of the Bulgarian air forces,” Defence Minister Krasimir Karakachanov told reporters.

    The Bulgarian government will have to decide on the report next month and pending approval by the parliament, Sofia can start talks for the deal, he said.

    We welcome the positive news of the #F16 selection. The F-16 Block 70 is ideally suited for Bulgaria’s national defence and will ensure the Bulgarian Air Force operates the most advanced 4th generation fighter jet in the @NATO inventory

    Con un presupuesto de USD 1.050 millones para 8 F-16V, los búlgaros deberían ser capaces de adquirir el F16-V, tomando en cuenta el deal eslovaco de 14 F-16V por USD 1.800 millones (aviones, spares, armamento, training, 2 años de soporte y otros).

    Con respecto a la vida útil del F16, pues es algo que ya se había presentado con anterioridad y el hecho que la USAF piense mantener los F16 por varias décadas más es un respaldo a la plataforma, razón por la cual distintos usuarios lo piensan mantener y upgradear, y otros están pasando de aviones soviéticos a F16. Pobrecitos, esos incautos van a 'perder todo lo aprendido y van a quedar traumados al cambiar de plataforma'

    Por otro lado, interesante la cantidad de aviones que van a ser upgradeados y los que aún no: posibilidades para hacerse con células de 2da… si es que hubiese un mando capaz de pensar a futuro, claro. En fin, otro año más pasado y perdido. El 2019 debería ser mejor, porque la esperanza es lo último que se pierde.

    Felices fiestas!

    Un párrafo lapidario extraído del artículo sobre ATAC (pp.40-43) de Michael Keaveney publicado en la edición de febrero de este año de CA. ATAC (hoy parte de Textron) provee servicios de fuerzas aéreas agresoras bajo contrato al DoD. Con una flota de reactores de combate que supera las 80 unidades (entre Kfir, Hawker Hunter, L-39 y los recientemente adquiridos Mirage F.1CR), maneja un presupuesto de mantenimiento y operación comparable al de una fuerza aérea pequeña.

    Supporting high-end training

    (...)

    Parker says the likes of ATAC are, ‘saving hours and money on increasingly expensive front-line assets like the F-35’. He adds, ‘We want not only aircraft that are affordable to buy, but affordable to support. So you are thinking of a single engine aircraft that’s supportable at the original equipment manufacturer [OEM] for the long term. This eliminates a lot of aircraft out there. The aircraft have to be upgradable as well, and that is a whole other challenge. Yes, we’re looking at fourth-generation aircraft such as F-16s and Mirage 2000s.

    We have looked at MiG-29s and a whole host of other former Eastern Bloc aircraft, but when you apply the test that I mention, the field really does narrow, so you are looking at an aircraft like the Mirage 2000 or F-16 that could enable us to create value for the DoD and also train them effectively.'

    Bueno, esto es un análisis realista de una compañía privada, pero que te dice una gran realidad ... lo que ahora apunta son los costos de operación y mantenimiento en el tiempo.. Y, desgraciadamente, el MIG 29 y otros aviones de esa area no cumplen al aplicar el análisis técnico. Ya ni hablamos de modernizar equipos, es solamente costos de operación y vigencia de equipos bien mantenidos.

    Claro, ahora por allí saltaran algunos con conceptos ya de salvavidas, al estilo Chavarry y compañía queriendo tapar el sol con un dedo.. pero, en fin. Ya si las palabras de un CEO de una compañía que si sabe del negocio y lo que cuesta mantener una aeronave en serio, ya no se que mas se necesitara...

    El F-35 tiene un solo motor, y sigue costando un ojo de la cara de operar, y 36 horas se requieren para cambiarle el motor, pero sus capacidades Stealth son superlativas.
    Un Rafale puede costar mas que un Mirage, pero hace el trabajo de cuatro de ellos.
    Al final depende de que capacidades requieras por el precio. Como dicen en Ingles, cuanto "Bang for the Buck" te da la nave.
    El analisis de la compañia privada se refiere solo a los costos de operacion, para actuar como sparrings, no se refiere a las capacidades que dichas naves puedan ofrecer a fuerzas aereas.
    Un F-16 y un Mirage2000 salen mas baratos, pero un Rafale ofrece mayores capacidades que cada uno de ellos. Ergo, se necesitan menos y le dan una cobertura superior a sus acompañantes.
    Igualmente se requieren menos pilotos y tecnicos.
