Media: the signing of a contract for the supply of Kuwait fighter Eurofighter Typhoon was delayed due to "procedural" delays

20
It was expected that the contract for the purchase of Eurofighter Typhoon 28 fighters by Kuwait will be signed on January 31, but this did not happen. The manufacturing company Finmeccanica explained this with “administrative and procedural” delays, reports bmpd with a link to the Air & Cosmos portal.

“The signing of an intergovernmental agreement by Kuwait and Italy for the purchase of single 22 and 6 twin fighter Eurofighter Typhoon became known in September of 2015. Finmeccanica group will be the main contractor for their production and will be delivered from the Italian production line. Kuwait will be the first recipient of fighters in the version with the new Captor-E radar with AFAR developed by the Euroradar consortium led by the Italian company Selex ES, ”reminds the resource.

Italy now intends to send its defense minister, Robert Rinotti, to Kuwait to sign the final contract.

According to the portal, the conclusion of the contract was postponed "because of the unresolved issue of training pilots."

The Ministry of Defense of Kuwait insisted on training pilots not in Italy, but in the UK "because of the language barrier." Nevertheless, the Italians insisted on their own, and the Kuwaiti pilots will go to study all the same in Italy. They prepared a program for them for 18 months.

It is noted that "together with the aircraft, the transfer of which will begin in 2019 g, will be delivered the Storm Shadow cruise missiles and Meteor medium-range air-to-air missiles."

          And here is an interesting trick. Our "friends" (you are my friend, comrade and dinner, as my dog ​​told the cat), broke an unlimited amount for the Hornets.
          And by the way, the Kingdom of Kuwait out of the corner of its eye for "oil tanks" mows on the MiG-29.

            No, they won’t do it.
            Kuwait's defense ministry insisted on training pilots not in Italy but in the UK "because language barrier". ..for them have prepared a program designed for 18 months.

            If they learn Italian as a problem, then there will be an ambush with Russian. On the alphabet of the deaf-mute to teach them what?

              In general, with regard to languages, then from European languages, Italian phonetics is most similar to Russian. In any case, there are no guttural sounds like in the French language.
              For example Parlare (to speak), and read in Russian "Parlare".

              then with the Russian finally there will be an ambush. On the alphabet of the deaf-mute to teach them what?

              In Kant, Asians were trained under the USSR and it seems to be good. Foreigners, the command Russian language (in which most of the words are not recommended to be pronounced in front of children and ladies), learned "at once", so the language barrier was easily overcome.

        You can’t buy airplanes from only one country. If the relationship deteriorates, it will be impossible to service them: you cannot buy either parts or weapons.

        Have Kuwet aircraft carriers wound up? What for such an expensive toy sea-based on land airfields?
        Money is nothing to do

          The Swiss also operate the F / A-18, although they do not have aircraft carriers, they have no access to the sea. True, in the case of Switzerland, the decision to buy exactly F / A-18 could be made by a referendum.

            In Switzerland, a referendum on idleness is being prepared for 2800 euros for each b / r. They have a right :)
            By the way, F / A is an analogue of our SU-34 without the prefix B and sea-based, in the past tense.
            F- fighter, A- Attack aircraft, B - Bomber.
            Personally, for the price of one superhornet, I would prefer three "mosquitoes" - f16 or one f-15, and better Su-30, SU-34 and MiG-31

              I think in the future the Syrian Air Force will be the strongest in the region! (We’ll agree with Israel .. I hope) Only in this way, you can put out a wave of violence in the Middle East ... (with the help of Russia, of course) And saudas, etc. let all that they want to buy, even though the carriers in the USA are useless! Russian BV for a long time and seriously ... (camels will be a pity, if that))))

                Syria's air defense is the best in the region in technology, but the Jews drove them on super phantoms and continue to drive on f16. They then know what a gasket is between a chair and a control panel. Shoot down a three-swing moment 25 is something outstanding

    Italy is burning. After medals, at Shpak tape recorder - Poland training aircraft, Kuwait combat fighters. With how much of that Italy, not bad successes of the Italian military-industrial complex.

    Kuwait, a small country in which Saddam was framed. Now Saddam is talking with the guri (peace be upon him), Iraq, thanks to the USA, is found below the baseboard as a result of the war with mattress feeding. A small country decided to be on a par with its neighbors, raising its rating by the presence of military aircraft, or did ISIS-Daesh decide to acquire its own Air Force?
