    [Mirage F1] Refonte

    La Jordanie vend de nouveau 25 F1 à Draken, 11 CJ, 13 EJ et 1 DJ. Ils sont stocké depuis 2010. Certains ont commencé leur carrière au Qatar puis en Espagne, puis en Jordanie pour finir chez Draken. Via Scramble... A voir s'ils peuvent être remis en état de vol ou s'ils seront cannibalisés... "Royal Jordanian Air Force Mirage F1s sold to Draken International The al-Quwwat al-Jawwiya al-Malakiya al-Urduniya (RJAF, Royal Jordanian Air Force) sold 25 Dassault Mirage F1 fighter and attack aircraft out of the 26 that were stored at As Shaheed Muwaffaq al Salti AB (al-Azraq) air base. The aircraft involved are most probably eleven Mirage F1CJs, thirteen Mirage F1EJs and one Mirage F1DJ dual seat. The Mirages were stored al-Azraq since 2010. The aircraft were sold to US-based adversary air (ADAIR) supplier Draken International based at Lakeland (FL). By April 2020, about 10 were received and the first delivery was published on Draken International's social media channels on 3 April 2020. The first aircraft, RJAF serial 118, was one of two Mirage F1DJs the Jordanians had. This Mirage was formerly CE.14C-85/14-74 with theEjército del Aire (EdA, Spanish Air Force), before it was sold to Jordan in 2007. Before that, in August of 1994, Spain bought the aircraft from Qatar (serial QA62). The remainder of the Mirages will be shipped during the next few months. Draken International already bought 20 former Spanish Air Force Mirage F1M/BM aircraft."

Both countries already use the C-130H Hercules for a longer period. The Alkowat al malakiya al jawiya (RMAF, Royal Moroccan Air Force) has sixteen C-130H Hercules in their active inventory, of which two have been modified as KC-130H tankers and one has been modified as an EC-130H.

The first aircraft, two C-130H transporters, were delivered in 1985. In 1997, five surplus C-130Bs were delivered from the USA. It is reported that five TAF Hercules' are still on the current active inventory, one C-130H, two C-130B and two C-130J-30s. Morocco made the request in late July 2019 (yes, nineteen) for two C-130Hs and alongside the aircraft, the RMAF will also receive six C-130H pylons and fuel tanks with the whole costing about USD 60,8 million. Tunisia requested for two of the same type of aircraft on 6 June 2019 (als twenty nineteen), the total acquisition costs are stated as USD 60 million. It is yet unknown when the aircraft will be delivered."

    KC-46 A Pegasus

    Suite aux différents problèmes rencontrés sur le KC-46, la production de série est reporté à fin 2024!!! Via Scramble "Full rate production decision for KC-46A Pegasus aircraft delayed On 9 June 2020, the US Air Force announced it delayed the full rate production milestone for the Boeing KC-46A Pegasus to the end of fiscal 2024. The KC-46 programme has several remaining category 1 deficiencies, the term used by the Pentagon to describe the most serious form of technical problems. Two of the deficiencies involve the aircraft’s remote vision system, which is a series of cameras and sensors used by the boom operator to see outside the KC-46 and refuel other aircraft. The USAF has contended that the RVS does not properly function in all light and weather conditions. The service refuses to deploy the KC-46 until the problem is fixed. In April, Boeing agreed to pay for a complete redesign of the system. Boeing needs time for this redesign until at least 2023. One other issue involves the Pegasus' boom, which was developed to meet NATO-specific requirements. However, it cannot refuel the A-10 Thunderbolt II. The USAF is paying for the redesigning of the boom actuator, as the service signed off on the original design. It did not realize until afterward that the system does not meet the specifications needed to refuel the A-10. Recently, in March, the USAF announced an additional category 1 deficiency, after maintainers found fuel leaking between the tanker’s primary and secondary fuel protection barriers. It is unclear whether this is still a problem, as Boeing had already developed a fix and had begun retrofitting aircraft at the time the issue was announced. The Director of Operational Test and Evaluation, Robert Behler, intends to conclude operational testing of the KC-46 only after prime contractor Boeing fixes the tanker’s critical deficiencies and has finalized its production configuration. Given its confidence in deficiency resolution timelines for both the aerial refuelling boom and Remote Vision System, the Air Force is rescheduling the Pegasus' Full Rate Production Decision milestone to late Fiscal Year 2024. The USAF notes that delaying the full rate production decision will not affect the programme's cost, since it is locked into place in a firm, fixed price deal with Boeing. This contract holds the contractor financially responsible for cost overruns. Also, it will not cause the service to alter its current delivery schedule. Boeing is already full-rate-producing KC-46s at fifteen tankers per year. It delivered the first KC-46 to McConnell AFB (KS) in January 2019. Since then, Altus AFB (OK) and Pease ANGB (NH) have also taken on new KC-46s. Boeing is set to produce 179 KC-46s within the programme. The company is suffering from cost overruns of about USD 4,6 billion, while the contract it was awarded in 2011 is worth USD 4,9 billion."
