    From the side it looks like a trainer aircraft ^^ On most forum they claim it's allmost comparable to F-22 ... It loses all its combat against Rafale. You must be stupid to buy these aircrafts.

    Arab countries are totaly under US controle. That's pathetic. Just look at how Quatar has to buy every stupid thing US sell them.

    Bahrain will receive fighters F-16V

    The Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) sent to the US Congress on 8 September 2017 notices of the forthcoming sale of 19 Lockheed Martin F-16V Viper fighters to Bahrain through inter-governmental military sales of Foreign Military Sales (FMS) and about modernization in the this version of 20 cash-fighter Lockheed Martin F-16C / D Block 40 Royal Air Force of Bahrain.



    The first notice informs about the forthcoming delivery to Bahrain of 19 Lockheed Martin F-16V fighters (apparently new construction), the estimated cost of the delivery of 2.785 billion dollars.

    The second notice informs about the planned upgrade of the F-16V version of 20 Lockheed Martin F-16C / D Block 40 Air Force fighters in Bahrain, the estimated cost of deliveries and works is 1.082 billion dollars.

    According to the list of equipment to be supplied in both notices, F-16V aircraft for the Bahrain Air Force will be equipped with the General Electric F110-GE-129 engine, the Northrop Grumman AN / APG-83 Scalable Agile Beam Radar (SABR) with AFAR, Harris AN / ALQ-211 Advanced Integrated Defensive Electronic Warfare Suite (AIDEWS), and Lockheed Martin AN / AAQ-33 Sniper targeting containers.

    Managed weapons are not included in the supply, but a list of its samples is provided, which will be supplied in single quantities for training and processing of integration: AIM-9X Sidewinder and AIM-120C-7 AMRAAM air-to-surface missiles, air-to-surface missiles AGM-154 JSOW, anti-radar missiles AGM-88 HARM, anti-ship missiles AGM-84 Harpoon, guided aerial bombs GBU-24 Paveway III, GBU-50 Enhanced Paveway II, GBU-38 JDAM, GBU-54 Laser JDAM and GBU-39 SDB.

    Bahrain will thus become the second customer of F-16V fighters after Taiwan, which in 2016 concluded with Lockheed Martin a contract to upgrade this version of its 142 cash fighter F-16A / B Block 20, with the work in 2017-2022. In this case, Bahrain, apparently, will be the first customer of F-16V aircraft of new construction.

    Lockheed Martin Corporation is promoting the modification of the F-16V in the market since 2012, advertising it as the most advanced version of the family of F-16 fighters. Flight tests of the prototype demonstrator F-16V with AN / APG-83 SABR radar were launched in October 2015.

    Bahrain received 12 F-16C / D Block 40 fighters (eight single-seat F-16Cs and four double F-16Ds) for the Peace Crown I FMS program in 1989-1990, and another ten single-seat F-16C Block 40 fighters under the program Peace Crown II in 2000. Now the Air Force in Bahrain has 20 F-16C / D Block 40 fighters in service with the 1st and 2nd Fighter Wing Fighter Squadrons at Isa's airbase. Also in service with the 6th Squadron of the same wing, there are 12 old Northrop F-5E / F Tiger II fighters, which are replaced by the new F-16V fighters.

    Qatar: Eurofighter fighters in addition to Rafale and F-15QA

    Reuters reported that on 17 September, 2017, Qatari Minister of State for Defense Qaid Khaled bin Mohammed Al Attiy signed a letter of intent with Letter of Intent to British Defense Minister Michael Fellon regarding the purchase of 24 Eurofighter Typhoon multifunctional fighters "with all equipment." The agreement was signed in Doha during the visit of the British Defense Minister to Qatar. Aircraft must be delivered from the British production line of BAE Systems Corporation, the specific parameters of the procurement, apparently, still need to be agreed.


    The second batch of Eurofighter Typhoon fighters, built on the British production line of BAE Systems Corporation for Oman, before departure from Warton (United Kingdom) to Oman. In the foreground, the first single-seat fighter with a number "210" (serial number NS001, the temporary British military number ZR401) built in Oman, in the background, the third double fighter with the onboard number "202" (serial number NT003, the temporary British military number ZR412) . 08/07/2017 (c) @GClaridgeking / twitter.com

    "This will be the first major defense contract with Qatar, one of the UK's strategic partners," the UK defense minister said in an official statement, which also said that negotiations on the deal took several years. The British Defense Minister also expressed the hope that "this will help improve the security of all allies in the Persian Gulf region."

    On the bmpd side, we point out that in this way the Eurofighter Typhoon will be the third type of modern multifunctional fighters purchased by Qatar. In May 2015, Qatar concluded a contract worth 6.3 billion euros for the purchase of 24 French fighters Dassault Rafale (18 single-seat aircraft Rafale EQ and six double Rafale DQ), with an option for another 12 Rafale aircraft, and in June 2017 signed an agreement with the United States cost about $ 12 billion to purchase 36 multifunctional fighters Boeing F-15QA through the inter-governmental military sales of Foreign Military Sales (FMS) (Qatar's plans extended to purchase 72 F-15QA aircraft).

    Qatar will be the fourth customer of Eurofighter Typhoon fighters in the Persian Gulf region after Saudi Arabia (which received 72 BAE Systems in 2009-2017), Oman (who signed a contract for the purchase of 12 aircraft from BAE Systems, deliveries commenced in 2017), and Kuwait (who ordered 28 aircraft, the deliveries of which will be carried out from the Italian production line of Leonardo).

    Now the Air Force of Qatar from combat aircraft have only 12 Dassault Mirage 2000-5EDA / DDA fighters and six combat training planes Alpha Jet E.

    Bahrain will receive two patrol boats built by Swiftships

    The Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) on September 8, 2017 sent a notification to the US Congress about the forthcoming delivery of two 35-meter patrol boats to Bahrain through the inter-governmental military sales of Foreign Military Sales (FMS). The sale is authorized by the US Department of State. The estimated cost of delivery is $ 60.25 million, the contractor for the supply of boats will be the US shipbuilding company Swiftships Shipbuilders.



    According to the notice, each boat will be equipped with one 25-mm automatic remote controlled artillery installation BAE Systems Mk 38 Mod 3 and round-the-clock electronic optical detection and fire control system FLIR Systems SeaFLIR 380 HD.

    On the bmpd side, we will point out that earlier Swiftships Shipbuilders in 2010-2012 built twelve 35-meter patrol boats of its Swiftships Model 35PB1208 E-1455 project for the Iraqi Navy in the FMS line, however, according to the magazine "Jane's Defense Weekly" referring to company information, boats for Bahrain will be built on a new project developed on the instructions of the Bahraini side.

    Boats for Bahrain will have a full speed more than 40 knots. In addition, Swiftships optionally offers the arms of the boats of this new project with new small-size controlled Raytheon Griffin missiles and the equipping with the automated combat management system Raytheon SYNTACS, although it is not clear whether the Bahraini boats will be equipped with these systems.

    The Serbs once had a concept of something similar called the dominator but looks like the UAE brought it to life only thing I would say it's lacking range. Jobaria defence systems multiple cradle launcher has 240 tubes carrying 122mm rockets effective firing range 16km max firing range 37km. There is also a 300 mm version pretty crazy vehicle.

    Kuwait will receive new tanks M1A2 Abrams instead of upgrading old ones

    According to the magazine "Jane's Defense Weekly" in the article Jeremy Binnie "Kuwait to get 'all-new' Abrams, not upgrade existing tanks", with reference to the information of an unnamed official of the US State Department, the government of Kuwait has decided to purchase 218 M1A2 tanks in the USA Abrams actually new construction instead of earlier planned modernization with major overhaul of 218 M1A2 tanks (delivered in 1994-1996) currently in service with the Kuwaiti army.



    Recall that in December 2016, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) sent a notification to the US Congress about the forthcoming modernization of 211 main tanks M1A2 Abrams of the Kuwaiti army in the framework of the Foreign Military Sales (FMS) program of intergovernmental foreign military sales. The cost of the modernization program, the main contractor in which the General Dynamics corporation was supposed to act, was estimated at $ 1.7 billion.

    However, on October 16, 2017, DSCA issued a new notice on the forthcoming delivery of 218 M1A1 armored tanks to FU 218 to Kuwait, and the same number of 120mm tank guns and AGT-1500 gas turbine engines (all from the presence of the US Department of Defense) for "recapitalizing M1A2 tanks" Kuwait. The estimated cost of delivery is only $ 29 million. According to the DSCA notice, Kuwait decided not to use the hulls of its existing M1A2 tanks "because of their interest in maintaining operational readiness."

    According to the source from the State Department quoted in the article "Jane's", M1A2 tanks for Kuwait will now be rebuilt using the previously mentioned M1A1 tanks, 120-mm cannons and engines mentioned in the DSCA notice. "The tanks are the beginning of new tanks," the source said. "Kuwait plans to purchase the remaining additional components, such as new towers, which must then be assembled and delivered as complete new ones tanks M1A2».
