Eurofighter Typhoon: business on the Vistula

102

European allies do not lose hope of creating a military airline business on the Vistula River and accelerate air expansion. We are talking about the heavy fighters Eurofighter Typhoon.


The promise to expand industrial cooperation will be the key that will open access to the most ambitious rearmament programs for the Polish aviationwrites the resource radar.rp.pl. In December 2019, representatives of the Italian defense, aviation and space industries, including the Italian Leonardo group, actively promoted this idea in Warsaw.

Poland is already a strategic client of Leonardo Corporation, representatives of the Italian industrial giant say. The Italians recalled a contract for eight AJT M-346 Master aircraft received by the Eagle School in Polish Deblin. Now the fleet of light aircraft AJT will expand due to new simulators. They will be operated by the Polish Air Force as part of an integrated training system for pilots of Polish military aviation.

Why is the Ministry of National Defense of Poland tempted by Eurofighter Typhoon fighters?

At present, Eurofighters, descending from production lines, are machines with increased tactical capabilities. Much has changed compared to when Eurofighter Typhoon was used in the Old World 14-15 years ago. Military expert Jerzy Grushinsky confirms that the fighter "becomes a multi-tasking machine." The last point above the "i" was set by the installation of weapons, namely long-range missiles. Grushinsky believes that after the current modernization, the Eurofighter Typhoon can qualify as a 4+ generation aircraft.

True, this car is "not quite invisible." This is especially clear from comparing Typhoon with the latest models: the F-35 Lightning II from Lockheed Martin or Rafale from Dassault Aviation. Eurofighter differs from them in a weaker limited detection system (stealth).

Typhoons, on the other hand, make up for this weakness with much greater payload. According to Grushinski, the increased carrying capacity opens up the possibility of expanding the airborne reconnaissance and electronic warfare equipment. At the same time, it allows the use of suspensions with additional missile weapons. New electronic equipment and weapons allow the Typhoons to simultaneously perform several different tasks in one flight, the expert points out.

To date, the industrial consortium Eurofighter (Airbus Defense & Space, Leonardo and BAE Systems with production centers in Germany, Italy and the UK) has released 623 Typhoons. As a result, Eurofighter became the largest European military program.

Typhoon has new radars. He is armed with high-precision European missiles, including Storm Shadow to destroy strategic ground targets. In addition, the vehicles will receive Meteor guided missiles (air-to-air) and Brimstone anti-tank missiles.

"Typhoons" are in fleets of already eight countries. These are Germany, Austria, Great Britain, Italy, Spain, Saudi Arabia and Oman. The first plane is waiting for the ninth participant, Kuwait: the state ordered 24 cars.

      It is unlikely that the psheks will "pull" the F - 35 - a very expensive tsyatska. Even if the Dutch have "turned on" the back, then where are the proud masters? Comparing the economic opportunities of Poland and the Netherlands is not even funny. But the Washington Reich Chancellery will not allow its servants to buy some European trash, only kosher, mattress airplanes.

          PPP GDP in Poland is approximately 25% higher than the Dutch one. And GDP at face value, on the contrary, is about half as small among the Poles. So you are wrong.

            GDP is generally an extremely strange indicator for comparing economic systems (economic systems and housing construction) of different countries, it is inherently biased. So, the Dutch GDP counts, for example, the turnover of subsidiaries of Gazprom and Rosneft, services for the transshipment of millions of tons of Chinese, Vietnamese, Indonesian consumer goods, to the production of which the Netherlands have the same relationship as we do to growing forests in the taiga or crystallizing diamonds in the bowels of Yakutia (which, by the way, still go to Amsterdam for a pittance for a pittance and thereby increase the GDP of the Netherlands ..) + a bunch of legal, consulting, rating agencies, offices and firms, whose services are so demanded primarily by countries '' 3 th world. '' But, since most of their profits immediately go to offshores and the pockets of their founders and co-owners, they also pay purely symbolic taxes to the budgets of the countries - therefore we get that the GDP formally in such `` highly developed '', `` post-industrial '' economies is quite high, but these countries do not have real money for the development of infrastructure and the purchase of weapons (and most importantly, their further maintenance). In contrast, by the way, from countries like Vietnam, Indonesia or Turkey and Algeria, which, having a developed `` real sector '' of their economies, have no less `` real '' revenues to the budgets of their countries and the ability to build and develop infrastructure, maintain and strengthen the armed forces ..

            These include Poland, which produces a significant part of both food and industrial (and very high-tech) products in the European Union - they, for example, produce fuselages for all export S-70 Blackhawk helicopters and, in part, for S- 92, made on the basis of the same S-70, and also participate in production cooperation for aircraft engines from GE and the French SAFRAN Group, make transmissions for the same modern helicopters (with which we, for example, have full seams), and also participate in large shipbuilding programs of France and Italy as a partner of levels 1-2 ...

            So Poland is quite a developed economy (although, of course, not self-sufficient due to its size and relatively small population), somewhat reminiscent of Israel, with adjustments for the size of countries and some other characteristic features)) But the opportunity to buy a couple of squadrons '' Eurofighters '', '' Rafaley '' or those same F-35s she definitely has: if Austria at one time took '' Typhoons '' (more precisely, the Germans gave them them to raise their image and status in the EF- 2000, which at that moment fell below the plinth), paying the full export price for them, which in those years was hoo wink

                Yes, they have, like many other EU countries, however wink But, just like in neighboring countries (France, Belgium, Great Britain, etc.), it is sharply subsidized (consider, `` planned unprofitable ''), remember at least the protests of local farmers after the EU imposed sanctions and stopped exporting their products to Russia - they were only calmed down by another increase in subsidies from the state. And where do the governments of such small countries (the population of the Netherlands are about 17 million people, including several million emigrants from all over the world, who for the most part sit on the neck of the state) get the funds for all these subsidies and benefits? That's right, at the expense of saving on cheap Russian gas, oil, diamonds and at the expense of billions of `` our '' (rather already theirs) oligarchs, which they are happy to pump out of our economy and pour into them wink
                Therefore, we do not hear about cases of a ban on the vision of `` business '' for such terrible `` friends '' of our president in their law-abiding and just countries, sacredly respecting human rights and all sorts of other minorities ..))

                        Yes, there is nothing special to understand: the States since the beginning of the 90s have `` allowed '' Europe to use our resources (they often actively participate in these schemes - the resale of Russian liquefied gas by Americans to Europe under the guise of their own and at a price `` like from states ', - as an example (works especially well with Poland, Ukraine, the Baltic countries, etc.)
                        + they could have long ago delivered a tough ultimatum to European countries on the reception of Russian billionaires and their relatives with their `` dirty '' billions and the laundering of this `` money '' in Europe - after all, this contradicts all their tales about the `` rule of law and the rule of law '', but instead the States do not hesitate to invite them to their place in Miami and New York - money does not `` smell ''))) These are the pies, if very shortly wink

                    so the fact of the matter is that it doesn’t buy, but reduces, sells and re-merges once decently equipped troops: of the last losses - abandonment of tank troops, only BMPs and armored personnel carriers remained, and that cat cried ... But when they had their own aircraft carrier (equal to the British in size ..) We’ll also have to say goodbye to aviation soon - 25 pieces of F-16A (built in the early 80s) remained, and a dozen Apaches were still relatively intact (from the mid-90s ) From the Dutch army there were horns and legs, do you really not know?

                    Well, the Poles, for example, now have the largest tank army in Europe (about 1200 Leopard and Leopard 2 are not the oldest versions + they constantly upgrade them). This, for a minute, is 1.5 times more than Russia’s T-72B3, T-90S and T-80U combined now .. sad While some are rolling a dozen handicraft-built plastic `` Armats '' around Red Square and tirelessly promoting themselves against their background, pragmatic people bought excellent equipment from Germany, Sweden and the same Holland, and last year the Germans gave them about 600 more of their cars with commitment to modernization with the participation of German firms. Here is an excellent example of a sensible building of your own armed forces with limited capabilities))

                    It’s so clear, it seems - in order to maintain their industrial capacities and the combat capability of the army they have not yet fully mastered the repair and modernization of Western equipment - they don’t buy T-72 now for their money, but received it when they divided the assets of the Warsaw block, so why get rid of gifts ... The same applies to MiG-29 fighters, and Mi-2, B-3, Mi-14, Mi-17 helicopters and other types of weapons of the CMEA era.

                    It would be better if they were so worried about their Dutchmen: they seem to again firmly intend to `` surrender to the mercy of the strongest '' without firing a single shot, as was the case with them in 1940 - they stubbornly refuse to learn even from their mistakes ...

If you consider those who fought while sitting in England, then there was only anyone there - the entire geyropa escaped. And so, organized resistance stopped on September 14th, i.e. - two weeks.

    They decided to pump up Polyakhia with weapons and use it as a ram against Russia! All these preparations of polyakhia have only one goal - a military provocation on the border with Russia! Europe sees that such a "product" as Russophobia is disappearing from the side of the field. So why not use the anti-Russian rhetoric of the "apple empire" to your advantage? To fight against Russia with the hands of notorious Russophobes is several times cheaper than to go into such an adventure ourselves. Therefore, as soon as the Polyahia receives new aircraft, as soon as Europe "feeds" this tame dog with finances, the Polyahia will be called to war against Russia, with the secret support of the entire NATO bloc.

      It's not just about the external (internal) suspension, actually .. Rafal has applied a whole range of measures to reduce EPR: radio-absorbing coatings, gilding of the cockpit canopy, widespread use of composites and glass and carbon fiber reinforced plastics ( more than 40% of the airframe surface - comparable to the F-22A), '' chevron '' (sawtooth) edges of panels and compartments, '' optimized '' shape of air intakes (non-adjustable), '' conformal '' (recessed into the fuselage) rocket suspension 'air-to-air', as well as an optimized form of 'air-to-surface' weapons + it is simply, in itself, very miniature .. - all this puts it in the category of aircraft with a 'lowered' RCS, such as the Saab Grippen , F-18E and the same F-35 with suspension of PTB or missiles outside. And in this regard, it is significantly ahead of the same F-15, Su-30-34-35, MiG-29M (35), Eurofighter Typhoon, as well as Japanese and Chinese crafts ...

        I agree with your post, except, in part, for the last sentence.
        The Japanese produce licensed F-15 and F-16, which are not stealth at all - this is true.
        But China has released, designed from scratch, pure stealth J-20.
        And another stealth - an analogue of the F-35 - in trials.

          And among the Chinese, I, first of all, consider the J-10, JF-17 models (which are at least somehow represented on the international market), as well as the numerous clones of the Russian Su-27-30-33-35, which they make especially for '' internal use '' ...
          Still, the J-20 as well as the J-31 (which the Chinese themselves do not even have in the small series) are vehicles of a slightly different class and we are unlikely to see them in the near future on the world arms market.

            To stealth was at the level of F-22 -35, the aircraft must be designed

            The Americans recently did special melee air force exercises.
            F-35 vs F-16. In the ratio of one F-35 against two F-16, four F-16, five.
            They taught the F-35 pilots how to survive in such "bear raids".
            I mean, the 4th generation has a chance to fill up the 5th with quantitative
            superiority and certain tactics.

              the plane needs to be designed
              from scratch
              Alexei, that’s why I left the F-16 outside the brackets, that measures to reduce EPR to one degree or another are present in all currently produced combat aircraft [our Su-30-34-35, MiG-29K / M2 also have special coatings for the lantern (MiG-35), MiG-31BM, Tu-22M3M, Tu-160M ​​(M2) and other machines] - this will not surprise anyone now ..
              At the same time, since the end of the 80s, a subclass of combat vehicles began to appear (conventionally referred to as the `` generation 4+ ''), in which measures to reduce the EPR were initially laid down, were `` harmoniously '' inscribed into the airframe design, without serious reduction of performance characteristics (like the F-117, B-2 and others) and having an acceptable (compared to the fifth generation) cost (and, most importantly, the cost of `` owning '' or `` life cycle '').
              These include Dasso '' Rafal '', EF-2000 '' Typhoon '', Saab '' Gripen '', McDonnel-Douglas (now Boeing) F-18E / F / G '' Super Hornet '' and, in part, the Japanese F-2, Chinese J-10, Indian HAL Tejas, and the Israeli IAI Lavi project also had signs of a reduced ESR in the design of its airframe (which later formed the basis of the ideas of the Chinese J -ten) wink

        With what fright did the Typhoon suddenly become "miniature", and "40%" of the surfaces are similar to the F-35? Where are the corners and surfaces that form the principal radar signal withdrawal ?! Dear, "Typhoon" was designed in the mid-80s (as well as F-16, MiG-29 ...) according to the classic scheme with a delta wing of the "duck" type, run in the Mirages. Not to mention the Swedish Grippen, English Volcano and Valkyrie: with the classic lines of the generation "4" in low-wing. There can be no question of any "stealth" corners and technologies. All of the above are just attempts to lower the ESR. Although good attempts ... The classic fifth generation has weapons strictly inside! Not to mention hanging tanks! Or maybe he has the ability to cruise at supersonic speed? Or is there a passive radar mode? Well, don't be ridiculous ... gilding ... sawtooth edges ... Its direct competitors in performance characteristics are only "4 +" ... but at a cost per unit (130-140 million $ / piece !!!!) it is of course, only the F-35 has a competitor here ... laughing

          With what fright suddenly "Typhoon"became" miniature "

          I seem to be quite specific - ''Rafale'',
          no need to distort my words please wink

          "40%" of surfaces are similar to F-35..

          - and what is actually written in my post:
          more than 40% of the airframe surface - comparable to F-22A .


          It seems like it's high time for someone to `` start eating '' (sleep it over), and then try to take on `` analytics '' ... lol

          Merry Christmas to you, dear!

    Try to save the Typhoon program from closing.
    Only Germany plans to buy more Typhoons for its Air Force to
    The assembly plant continued to work.
    The remaining participants in the Typhoon program either bought the F-35 (England, Italy),
    or look this way (Spain).

      For Germany, it is now very important to maintain competencies (primarily qualified personnel) before the start of full-scale development and testing of prototypes of a new joint fighter with the French and Spanish (conditionally generation 5+). Otherwise, only the role of a `` donor '' awaits them: funds will flow from the German budget to the French and, in part, the Spaniards, and to develop their industry and science, pay for the work of specialists in these countries ...

        I understand the Germans. Engineers, jobs, etc.
        But for them it would be very reasonable to buy a squadron or two
        F-35 - for review at least. When designing your car
        there was nothing to compare. Otherwise, without the experience of the 5th generation, it will turn out no better,
        than Americans, and the same thing (or worse).
        The Chinese bought a pair of Su-35 squadrons. Now they have a platform for
        comparisons: "this must be done, like the Russians, but this must be changed ..."
        . They will also buy a little Su-57, and again - there is nothing to compare.

          Well, the German Bundeswehr does not have money to maintain its own vehicles (Tornado and Eurofighter) in a combat-ready state, and you offer them to buy up to a heap of F-35s))
          And besides, in this program (if it takes place at all), France (the Dassault company and the Airbus Defense France division) will play the leading `` violin '', which over the past 60 years has developed its own aircraft building school ( in contrast to Germany, where after WWII the best aircraft designers were dragged to themselves by the United States and the `` allies '', and the rest just scattered around the world (Argentina, Chile, Brazil, India, Egypt, the same Spain and Italy) .That is why now it is clear (this can be seen from those layouts and graphics that the Dassault company has been demonstrating at air exhibitions for the last couple of years) that the future machine will have the traditional features of the `` French aircraft building school '' (primarily the `` tailless '' scheme), in which they will try, as always as concisely as possible and with their inherent '' charm '' and '' sense of style '', to enter the modern achievements of the world aircraft industry (internal cargo compartments, shielding of engine compressors with airframe design elements, '' low-emission '' vertical tail and engine nozzles).
          Their aircraft will be much closer in appearance to the future British-Italian fighter BAе Systems' 'Tempest' 'than to such aircraft as the F-22 and F-35 (normal aerodynamic design) and the Russian C-57 (normal design or' 'hidden triplane' is a Sukhoi trick that very few people still notice wink )

            As for the possibility of “borrowing” something or taking into account the experience of operating the F-35, they have “comrades-in-arms and partners in NATO” for that in the face of neighboring Belgium and Italy (for France) and Norway, and in the near future is also obvious for Denmark and the Netherlands (for Germany), which, within the framework of the alliance, are simply obliged laughing share experience with alliance partners)) It is foolish not to use this opportunity, and even practically free, deducting money every year for the maintenance of this very `` NATO ''))) wink

            Tornado decommission, in my opinion?
            German pilots need to fly on the F-35 and compare.
            Actually, they already did this in 2018, and the Air Force commander said that
            The Air Force wants the F-35. He was immediately fired for "unpatriotism" towards
            to domestic industry. sad
            State interests do not always coincide with the military.

              I do not know how they will write off the Tornado (I mean reconnaissance and electronic warfare modifications, they have interceptors for a long time in reserve - purely for quantity, like Italy, Great Britain and Arabia, however), if in the Bundeswehr. '' Typhoons '' in a fit for flight and 2 full-fledged regiments are not recruited)))

                So, the Bundeswehr has no trivial means to maintain long-purchased cars, and you offer them to fork out more and the F-35 - another new type with the additional costs for the life cycle, staff training, and the purchase of equipment (diagnostic and repair) ... This is an extremely dubious idea, especially for extremely pragmatic and prudent Germans.
                PS If you really want to see your favorite F-35 with a swastika on board, then there is an option for renting an F-35A squadron, for example, from Israel))) And what, you give them an F-35A, and they will repair and modernize you in return submarines in their shipyards, which were built in Germany)) How do you like barter? And what, I think, and the United States will not particularly object - such advertising for their aircraft (and even inside the NATO alliance - secrecy is respected)) and almost free (well, except for repainting, and changing part of communication systems (state recognition))) laughing In addition, Israel already has a similar experience: the well-known deal with Italy on the exchange (barter) of UTS M-346 Master for Israeli-made AWACS aircraft - it seems that all parties were satisfied, no one complains wink
                PPS
                It was a joke of humor smile , if that)) Happy holidays to you.

            Taillessness is basically correct.
            And the Americans are going to this. Since F-35 and F-22 dissolve remarkably on
            centimeter radars, but glow on meter. Due to the tail.
            The ideal is Raider, their future bomber. He is a stealth in all radio bands accepted in the army.
            But there is a problem with maneuverability. Here it will be necessary to puzzle.
