Peut être que le METEOR qui a un auto-directeur de la famille du MICA partage sa LAM (Liaison avion missile) qui est différente de celle de l'AMRAAM.

En plus de l'antenne active elle même, il faudrait donc aussi des développements logiciels pour mettre en place cette nouvelle LAM.

Depuis le temps que les Typhoon fan boys nous bassinent avec la liaison à double sens qui est installée pour l'intégration du METEOR sur Typhoon au contraire de la liaison à sens unique du Rafale...

L'intégration du METEOR fait partie de P2E et les Typhoon Koweitiens sont au standard P3Eb

It was followed by another firing of a Meteor Beyond Visual Range Air-to-Air missile using UK Typhoon aircraft IPA6, also at the Hebrides range. Led by BAE Systems with support from MBDA, Selex, QinetiQ and UK Ministry of Defence (MOD) and the Eurofighter teams. The firing follows trials held in late 2015 which saw the Typhoon aircraft conduct guided Meteor firings against real air targets in pre-planned scenarios.

The Storm Shadow and Meteor firings are part of the flight test campaign for the Phase 2 Enhancement (P2E) programme which will introduce a range of new and improved long range attack capabilities to Typhoon.

"Nice Scoop: Kuwaiti Super Hornet showing its colours

These are the first images of a Quwwat al-Jawwiya al-Kuwaitiya (Kuwait Air Force, KAF) Boeing F/A-18E Block III Super Hornet in full colour scheme. Serial 803 (Bureau Number (BuNo) 169708) was caught making multiple touch and go’s at the manufacturer plant at St. Louis Lambert International (MO) on 25 September 2020.

With the new knowledge of the (first) serial and BuNo block, we can publish the serial batches we expect for the KAF 22 F/A-18E and six F/A-18F Super Hornets:

801-822 169706-169727 F/A-18E Block III

831-836 169728-129733 F/A-18F Block III

The only reservation with the above is the two-seater serials, as they have not been noted yet. As we reported before however, F/A-18F BuNo 169731, was noted during a test flight in St. Louis (MO) on 2 July 2020. Back then it was in primer (no two-one grey coat) and without a serial. Reportedly it was then the fifth Kuwaiti Super Hornet but unclear if it was the fifth built, or fifth flown or fifth noted. Anyway, it seems is the fourth F/A-18F.

To recap, back on 17 November 2016 the Defense Security Cooperation Agency submitted the approval to supply Kuwait F/A-18E/F Super Hornet with equipment, training facilities and support. However, the eventual sale of F/A-18 Super Hornets to Kuwait was held up by a delay in the US State Department's approval. By then, Kuwait had already ordered 28 Typhoons (in April 2016), with a mix of 22 single-seat and six two-seat aircraft. This led to some confusion as to whether Super Hornets or Typhoons would replace Kuwait’s remaining fleet of 34 legacy F/A-18C/D Hornets.

The Kuwaiti order was originally expected to be for a total of 40 Super Hornets, including an initial batch of 28 aircraft, and with options on 12 more. Eventually Kuwait ordered 28 examples of the Typhoon and 28 Block III Super Hornets; the latter with the same single-/two-seat mix as the Typhoons: 22 F/A-18E single-seat and six F/A-18F two-seat aircraft. This way, the country is expanding its fighter force and re-establishing a two-type frontline force.
