Military Review

In the USA, 8 F-16V fighter jets will be produced for Bulgaria, in Poland doubted the expediency of the deal

137

It became known about the Lockheed Martin order of production of eight F-16 Block 70 Super Viper fighters, which in the modern American nomenclature are designated as F-16V. These aircraft are reported to be delivered for the needs of the Bulgarian Air Force.


According to the latest data, the Bulgarian Ministry of Defense ordered 6 single and 2 double fighters from an American manufacturer. The announced contract amount is $ 512 million. Based on this amount, we can conclude that the American company requested $ 16 million for the F-64V unit.

But these are just empty cars. In total, 1,26 billion dollars are allocated from the Bulgarian budget. These funds will be used to purchase weapons from the United States for the supplied fighters, to train the flight and technical personnel of the country's air force, and to modernize the basic infrastructure.

Deliveries of F-16V fighters to Bulgaria should be completed in 2027. It is precisely such time frames that are indicated in the Bulgarian-American agreement of a military-technical nature.

It is noted that this is the largest transaction in the military-technical sector of Bulgaria since the collapse of the Warsaw Pact Organization.

The Polish media are somewhat skeptical about such a purchase of equipment by NATO partners. In particular, in the publication Defense24, the author calls the contract "more symbolic, since it does not allow even a full squadron to be created." A deal of this format is considered inappropriate, since at a substantial cost it will not cover the needs of the Bulgarian Air Force.

          Potential, not real. Almost everyone in history has ever been potential enemies and friends. The Bulgarian in their majority and at present do not consider Russia an enemy. Polls are categorical.

          And the acquisition of only 8 aircraft does not threaten Russia in any way, which was confirmed by the Russian ambassador Makarov in Sofia. hi

            Surely this is true, but it does not change the fact that you are in a hostile Russian bloc, hence everything else. probably many Bulgarians were well / were grateful to Russia in the years of the First World War, and then the second. but, at the same time, they were on the side of the enemy of Russia (

              We entered NATO in 2004, 14 years after the ATS broke up. Until 2014, Russia did not consider NATO a hostile bloc. Despite the onset of cold weather in relations, no one in Bulgaria believes that Russia is an enemy.

              Misunderstanding of the situation comes from the fact that you look at it on your side! It looks different from ours! Not Bulgaria, but Russia was on the side of our worst enemies! Moreover, the Russians often changed their friends and enemies ... What can you do, in fact there is no Russian-Bulgarian antagonism, but there is a contradiction in the national interests! hi

                      The total change in economic realities is an objective fact. Got it or not, it's very debatable! During the so-called socialism, incidentally brought to us on the bayonets of the CA, Bulgaria went bankrupt 2 times! But I don’t mean it! ATS gave militarily security guarantees to the countries participating in it. After its collapse, the Russian ambassadors in Sofia directly told our leadership - We need to be friends from the West, we are no longer enemies! We will build a new Europe, from the English Channel to Kamchatka! We have no interests in the Balkans. All further is a consequence. So, we have what we have.

              Su-57 is a heavy fighter-bomber. You don't need it from the word "absolutely". And they won't let you buy planes from Russia. Not even the Su-27, but the MiG-35, for example.

                Su-57-27-3xxx are definitely not needed! Bulgaria needs an F-16 class fighter, so they bought it. It is a pity, the amount is insignificant, I hope we will buy more. Even if we leave politics on the side, the MiG-35 is not a variant. From the word "absolutely". Twin-engine, less resource, electronics, radars hardly reach the American ones. In short - neither cancer nor a thing. There is no ego even in the Russian Air Force.

    Bulgaria betrayed Russia at different periods of history.

    A slightly incorrect postulate. smile
    Bulgaria did not give us any obligations in the choice of allies in the two world wars ... they simply made a mistake in their choice by putting on a losing option.
    Now, Bulgaria is stepping on the same rake for the third time, betting on a stronger master in their understanding.
    For a long time, I no longer perceive Bulgaria as a country friendly to us ... it fully complies with the instructions of the United States and Brussels ... and in the event of a new conflict with Russia, the territory of Bulgaria will again be used against us.

        No, it's not your fault, it's just your choice. And you made it. And the choice is not on the side of Russia, so do not be surprised and then do not whine.
        You did not give examples of any good prospects for the future.
        You might think you have them, or your new "allies" in NATO. And Russia, for the most part, is quite a self-sufficient country. In terms of resources, this is for sure, but in terms of industry, so strain and everything will be. Our ancestors have done this more than once ..
        After 1989, all your "allies" and some of the USSR countries joined NATO
        Let's say after 1991, but that's right. So they turned out to be "brothers" and "allies". But the most interesting thing is that they have not yet drunk this cup in full. The real difficulties are ahead. It took only one small virus to surface all the insignificance of your new "alliances". So there is nothing to blame the USSR, the point is in you.

          They didn’t agree to the end ...
          "From the recording of the conversation between V.M. Molotov and F. Schulenburg - November 25, 1940.
          Comrade Molotov reports on the conditions on which the Soviet Union agrees to accept basically the draft pact of four powers (i.e., to create the Berlin-Rome-Moscow-Tokyo axis), and also talks about the conclusions that follow from this message .. . "
          Here are some of the conditions:
          1. If the German troops are now withdrawn from Finland, representing the sphere of influence of the USSR, according to the Soviet-German agreement of 1939, and the USSR is obligated to ensure peaceful relations with Finland, as well as the economic interests of Germany in Finland (export of timber, nickel);
          2. If the security of the USSR in the Straits is ensured in the coming months by concluding a pact of mutual assistance between the USSR and Bulgaria, which is geographically located in the sphere of security of the Black Sea borders of the USSR, and organizing a military and naval base of the USSR in the Bosphorus and Dardanelles on a long-term basis rent;
          3. If the area south of Batum and Baku in the general direction to the Persian Gulf will be recognized as the center of gravity of the aspiration of the USSR;
          4. If Japan renounces its concession rights for coal and oil in Northern Sakhalin under conditions of fair compensation.

          By the way, in the agreement on the entry of Bulgaria into the Axis, part 5 reads: "Each of the signatory countries of the pact can have relations with the USSR at their discretion!" The agreement did not oblige the members of the OSI to participate in the war against the USSR! And Bulgaria did not participate!
          It is strange that NATO has advanced east in defiance of this promise to Gorbachev ...
          having deceived once this organization will deceive many more many times.

          Nonserious hardening, Alexey! Gorbachev, and everybody who is beautiful, knows that only an agreement has a binding value! The question here is why the contract was not concluded? Probably due to the fact that Gorbachev intended, in the future, to include in NATO, the Soviet Union itself. This is the most likely reason for such a drinking "miss"! hi

    Another reason to recall how Bulgaria betrayed Russia in different periods of history.

    It’s just that the United States breaks out their hands so that there is work for their defense industry, and Bulgaria is a small country and does not need problems, it’s necessary to adapt.
    Do not judge strictly the Bulgarians, they cannot afford a truly independent policy.

    It became known about the Lockheed Martin order of production of eight F-16 Block 70 Super Viper fighters, which in the modern American nomenclature are designated as F-16V.


    Deliveries of F-16V fighters to Bulgaria should be completed in 2027.

    8 F-16V for 8 years. By plane per year.

      The Polish media are somewhat skeptical about such a purchase of equipment by NATO partners. In particular, in the publication Defense24, the author calls the contract "more symbolic, since it does not allow even a full squadron to be created." A deal of this format is considered inappropriate, since at a substantial cost it will not cover the needs of the Bulgarian Air Force.

Get f-ok at a price of 65 million apiece, and the most interesting thing is that in fact, not even for 8 but for 6 cars, what kind of gouging should our shitty government be? Two sparks after the arrival of the fighting must return back !!! This means that the price per piece is in fact 85-plus million (and something else to fully train new pilots is unlikely to be possible) of green paper. For etu price could well buy a Su-57 and more money would be left for weapons. And besides, all the remaining 750 million that should be spent DO NOT include AMRAAM missiles, and there will be no guided bombs yet. And what the hell is such a trimmed plane for the price of a fifth-generation aircraft ???

The plane is cut off by us from these opportunities. Not from the Americans. From U.S. For money. For nothing else. No one with a small aircraft concept was fascinated by the way we cut our planes. Whatever the political leadership says.

        Have you read the stories of our MiG-21 pilots against the Americans in Bulgaria? The plane is fast and with its color hiding on the surrounding surface. BUT! Until the Americans turn on their radars. And the plane was discovered and "destroyed." The end of the film.

        F-16V is the best of all alternatives for integrated performance. Grippen has the best takeoff and landing characteristics and the cost of an hour of operation, but loses everything else. Moreover, Bulgaria has accumulated a significant positive trading asset with the United States in recent years, so the acquisition of the Falcons, in some mayor, compensates for it. hi

            Nothing is true! Not a single line! Sorry No.
            but in this configuration in which we buy the f-ok they are inferior even to the MiG-23 and Gripen even more so

            The contract price includes technical support for 3 years ahead. By the way, the Bulgarian "Avionams" got licenses! So, some of the money will return to Bulgaria. + Supply of diagnostic stands and equipment. + 3D simulators / they cost millions /. + crew training in the USA. + ammunition / in the truth is not the volume that Radev wanted /.
            The only real competitor was Grippen. He has an hour of flight cheaper than everyone. But with him there are other snags! For actions on ground targets, he is clearly weaker than Falcon! It excels in the water supply chambers, otherwise loses. Moreover, he was driven by an American license, most of the weapons are also American. Buy it directly, not like. In this case, the same system for the F-16 will be cheaper than for Gripen.
            F-16 produced in thousands of ex., And Gripen exotic. Accordingly, it is better to buy a fighter who has proven his qualities than one that has not participated in any battle.
            And if in order to balance the balance it was necessary to buy military equipment, they could buy Apaches

            Yes, Apaches are also needed, but with the destroyers we are still tight. I believe we’ll buy turntables, but not like all at once!
            And they could also buy thermal imagers for the T-72, etc.

            You probably have not heard, a contract has already been signed for the modernization of the T-72! There was a staty here too in VO! It is planned to install an integrated high-tech Israeli LMS! There are thermal imagers there, and much more is the most modern! So far, if memory does not fail, how 90 tanks will be upgraded! hi

        8 aircraft is nothing. With this number, apart from Air Policing, nothing more can be done. Pilots can train other capabilities of the aircraft, and all. We need to replace the old with something newer and more powerful. To last another 20-30 years.

            Discussions did not stop for years! The media is still replete with them! The contract was pulled for a long time! Changed the conditions, processed the requirements and so on. This was one of the hot topics in the media, and there were all kinds of opinions! Both among society and among specialists! There were political conflicts, for example, President Radev with the Moscow Region and a prime minister. There is a lot of public information!
            Rafali was not, they are expensive Pts expensive, twin-engine, even though the president / he is a military pilot, 1-class. former commander of the Air Force / familiar with them in France. Second-hand Italian typhoons, also expensive, and again motor-driven. The final reached SAAB and Lokhiyt Martin. SAAB made an offer to put 10 Gripenna at the price of 8 + offset, + inclusion in the unified support system of Gripenna operators. Lokkhiyt in response slightly reduced the price, moreover, the American government approved to help Bulgaria - $ 56 million without pay. The configuration of the F-16 bl 70 really excels in the Gripenna performance characteristics, and eventually Lockheed won the competition.
            The next batch / + 8 / will really cost much less.

        Su-25 is also a plane for about 30+ years. The plane leaves with age and material fatigue. They don’t have a watch, but she left because of her age. Good car. Also useful for ground forces.
