Philippines Defense Secretary Says U.S. Attack Helicopter Offers Are Too Pricey

May 15, 2020 - by Daniel Darling

Barely two weeks after an announcementthat government-to-government Foreign Military Sales (FMS) requests by the Philippines to Washington for potential buys of U.S.-sourced attack helicopters had been cleared by the State Department, it appears the price tags involved are bigger than Manila’s budget.

Defense Secretary for the Philippines, Delfin Lorenzana, has stated the money ring-fenced for the potential acquisition amounts to PHP13 billion ($257 million), whereas the two offers of six AH-64E Apaches and six Bell Helicopters AH-1Z Vipers come with estimated price tags of  $1.5 billion and $450 million, respectively. The difference in price is partially due to the more extensive list of weaponry and quantity of weapons.

The Philippines would also like to procure at least six Turkish T129 ATAK helicopters, which are a derivative of the AgustaWestland-designed A-129 Mangusta attack helicopter. Defense Secretary Lorenzana confirmed the Philippines’ interest in securing a contract for the T129s on December 7, 2018.

Egyptian Navy launches fourth Gowind-2500 corvette “Luxor”

Luxor will be 4th Gowind class corvette of the Egyptian Navy

The Egyptian Navy launched its fourth Gowind-2500 corvette, named Luxor at Alexandria shipyard on 12th May, the Naval Group has announced via Twitter. The Egyptian defense minister has attended the launching ceremony of Luxor, which is being built locally in cooperation with France’s defense company Naval Group.

The Naval Group praised the performance of Alexandria Shipyard and emphasized on the improved skills of a civilian shipyard being able to achieve complex military qualifications and high-quality results.

In 2014, Egypt signed a €1bn contract with Naval Group to buy four Gowind 2,500-ton corvettes with an option for two more. Three of the corvettes are to be built locally by Alexandria Shipyard within a technology transfer agreement.

In April 2015, Naval Group started cutting metal for the very first Gowind 2500 corvette, and it was launched almost a year later in September 2016 in France. At the same time that the first corvette appeared in 2016, there were major works going on inside the Alexandria Shipyard Company in Egypt to build the second Corvette, and it was launched in September 2018. The first corvette was commissioned in September 2017 and the second one is expected to enter service end of this year.

A Canadian Forces Snowbird jet has crashed into a house in Kamloops.

Two jets took off from Kamloops Airport at about 11:30 a.m., bound for Comox, when one rose, then veered to the left and barrel rolled toward the ground, crashing into a house on Glenview Drive, setting the residence on fire.

The two residents of the home escaped without injury.

Witnesses saw at least one pilot eject before the plane crashed.
He landed on the roof of a house on nearby Schreiner Street and was rescued by Kamloops Fire Rescue.

A witness told KTW a second person, a female, appeared to have succumbed to her injuries.
Dana Hings is a retired nurse from New Westminster who is visiting her daughter in Brock.

“We were in the garden and we heard a large crash,” Hings told KTW, noting they heard calls for medical help.

Hings and her daughter rushed to the backyard of the home and found a person who appeared to be deceased.

“I saw a deceased female with catastrophic injuries,” Hings said. “It looked like she hit a tree. It’s insane. It’s not supposed to happen. This [the Snowbirds tour] is supposed to be a good thing and she died.”

F-35 Has Crashed In Florida, Second Aircraft Loss For Eglin Air Force Base In Five Days

user posted image

QUOTE
Details remain scarce at this time, but an F-35 Joint Strike Fighter that was flying out of Eglin AFB, which is located on the Florida panhandle, has crashed. Thankfully, the pilot was able to eject and is safe.

The incident occurred at around 9:30 pm local time and the F-35A was on a routine night training mission.

This is the second crash of an aircraft operating out of the base in less than a week, with an F-22 Raptor going down on Friday, May 15th.

Thankfully, in that incident, the pilot was also able to eject and survive the mishap.

If the F-35 is destroyed, it would be the third crash of an F-35 that resulted in a total write-off of the airframe.

administration or training is personal choice
Sometime it also comes with promotion. But for pilot they will have priority to have a flying job with other squadron.
