JSF styrket efter indisk fiasko for Gripen og F-18

Det ellers så udskældte JSF-kampfly har fået forstyrket sin favoritværdighed i den danske kampflykonkurrence. De to andre kandidater, Gripen og F-18, er nemlig begge tilsyneladende blevet vejet og fundet for lette i den indiske kampflykonkurrence, hvor to franskmænd er gået videre i kampen om at skulle levere mere end 120 fly.

Ubekræftede skriverier i flere indiske medier lyder på, at Rafale og Eurofighter er de to eneste af i alt seks kandidater, der er gået videre til næste runde af “the mother of all arm deals”, som inderne uden at blinke selv kalder det. Foruden Gripen og F-18 er også F-16 og russiske MIG-35 siet fra.

Det er et alvorligt slag i solar plexus for de to “under dogs” i den danske kampflykonkurrence, som i øjeblikket er sat på stand by. F-18 har US Navy at falde tilbage på, mens den indiske fiasko kan få katastrofale konsekvenser for svenske Gripen, der er en marginalspiller, som endnu ikke har fået en markant ordre. I den anden store kampflykonkurrence i Brasilien, har Gripen været nævnt som flyvevåbnets favorit, men mon ikke Sarkozy’s lobbyisme over for Lula sidste år slår ud til fordel for franske Rafale? Og så er der ikke så meget andet i horisonten for Gripen.

Med udviklingen i Indien bliver JSF styrket markant i den danske konkurrence. Noget, de sikkert glæder sig over hos Lockheed Martin, efter massive tæsk til flyet det seneste halve år eller mere. For kan vi bruge noget, som ingen gang inderne (og måske også brasilianerne) ikke kan bruge?

Til gengæld kan Eurofighter med den indiske rygvind blive en interessant deltager i den danske konkurrence, når bolden bliver givet op til omspil senere på året. Eurofighter var oprindeligt med i det danske “game”, men blev mopset over at JSF, i deres optik, var udpeget som vinder på forhånd. Og så gik de deres vej og smækkede med døren. Da problemerne fortsat rasler ned over JSF kunne det være at Eurofighter kunne vippe amerikaneren af pinden, eller i det mindste få en flot andenplads, som man kunne bruge i markedsføringsarbejdet i andre lande.

    “…hvor to franskmænd er gået videre i kampen om at skulle levere mere end 120 fly.”

    Så vidt jeg husker trak franskmændende sig ud af Typhoon samarbejdet engang i 1980′erne og satsede på Rafale. Derudover er det også vigtigt at hæfte sig ved, at det er ubekræftet snak. Tidligere har der været nævnt lignende, bare til fordel for Gripen NG (JAS39 Gripen E/F) og Typhoon. Skal man følge tangenten yderligere, har argumenterne for Rafale, Typhoon og Gripen NG været at de er relativt uafhængige af USA og det kan inderne godt lide. Dog har Gripen NG lidt problemer der pga. amerikansk motor, som dog produceres på licens af Volvo Aero; iøvrigt sammen motor som anvendes i Super Hornet, dog optimeret til 1-motors brug vha. bl.a. FADEC. Samtidig kan det vel også nævnes af F-16 Viper ifølge rygtebørsen også er røget ud af den indiske konkurrence, hvilket vel heller ikke giver den eventuelle chancer for at komme på tale igen i Holland eller komme med i DK’s konkurrence – Det må jo helt klar være noget bras, hvis inderne ikke kan bruge den…;-)

    Ud over det, kan der formentligt argumenteres for, at F-18 har en spinkel chance i DK, såfremt EPAF samarbejdet bliver vægtet højt ved DK’s beslutning, da Holland ikke vil have 2-motores fly. JSF lider ikke ligefrem af medvind i Holland og da rygterne vil vide, at processen om indkøb formentlig går om, bliver det spændende. Gripen NG blev nr. 2 tidligere i deres runde. Og Holland er en ret stor spiller i EPAF sammenhæng. Typhoon kan potentielt også udelukkes som dansk valg af samme årsag (2-motores problematik).

    Mvh.

    Eurofighter and Rafales may be flying today agasint an already neutered Libyan air defenses, thanks mainly to the American technological superior assets. In fact, Libyan operation came in handy to test their weapons while they are protecting the civilians. Eurofighter is having a tough time due to breakdowns and lack of spare parts.Here is a suggestion, buy F35, World’s ONLY fifth generation multi-role Stealth fighter aircraft, equipped with the World’s most powerful AN/APG-81 AESA radar and electronic warfare platform. The radar is currently replacing all AESA radars on the F-22 after a F35 reportedly “jammed” its AESA radar. Nothing comes close. A Eurofighter, SU30MKI, upgraded Mirage 2000-5 Mark 2s, Rafales would be toast before any of these fighters could even detect an F35-Joint Strike Fighter. F35 is the ticket for India to create a World Class Airforce ready for J-20s, SU 30MKK’s of PLAAF, F16-Block 52s, J17-Thunders of PAF.It simply makes no sense to induct even a single NEW 4.5 generation aircraft with no AESA radar as of today, that supposedly is going to serve for at least 4 decades, when you can induct a Fifth Generation Stealth Multi-Role Fighter which might be the last manned aircraft before we transition to UCAVs. I would not even go into the PAK/FA T-50, the FGFA being developed by Sukhoi (25% HAL- I doubt it, because the protypes were already flying when India joined in) because I believe India has already committed to it.Let us see, Rafale so far NO customers besides French Navy and the Air Force. Eurofighter is bought by the 4 countries that developed it and even there is no guarantee of them buying the tranche 2 and 3′s., especially after Libyan operations. Except Germany, rest of the three nations have signed for F35sSaudi Arabia has signed up for 72 Eurofighters as an inducement to have the UK’s Serious Fraud Office to discontinue its investigation in the BAE Systems’ alleged 60 Million bribery to senior Saudi officials in the al-Yamamah contracts in 1980′s, under which BAE had supplied 96 ground attack Tornadoes and 48 air defence variants, along with 50 jet and turbo-prop trainers. Plus remember, Israel has ensured that Saudi Arabia and/or any arb country would not receive F35s. So they have no choice other than 4 or 4.5 Gen fighter aircraft.Austria, which originally ordered 24 Eurofighters, reduced that number down to 15.It should be an eye opener that Rafale or the Eurofighters could not initiate operations in Libya, until after US forces had “sanitised” the country of all air defences, which were old Soviet vintage. So much so for the 4.5 Generation aircraft.I would not discount a possibility of Gripen to tie up in some capacity with the LCA project to share some technologies.
