    Helicopter landing ship-dock Al Fulk launched for Qatar

    bmpd
    On January 24, 2023, the official launching ceremony of the landing helicopter dock L 141 Al Fulk under construction for the Qatar Navy took place at the Fincantieri Italian shipbuilding association in Palermo . The transfer of the ship to the Qatari customer is scheduled for 2024.

    Recall that in June 2016, the Minister of Defense of Qatar signed and in August 2017 contracts with the Fincantieri association for the construction of seven warships for the Qatari Navy until 2024 - a landing helicopter dock ship, four large Doha-type corvettes and two "patrol ships" (actually small missile ships / corvettes) of the Musherib type. Contracts were signed with the European missile association MBDA for the supply of weapons for these ships. In essence, this refers to the construction of a new fleet for Qatar, since until recently the largest units of the Qatari Navy were seven missile boats with a displacement of no more than 500 tons.

    Kuwait receives four Eurofighter Typhoons

    DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — The Kuwaiti Air Force received four Eurofighter Typhoons this week, bringing its fleet size to 13 out of the 28 on order, the country’s official Kuwait News Agency announced.

    Deliveries began in December 2021 as part of an effort to enhance the service’s combat readiness.

    The Eurofighter acquisition program is part of a collaboration between Kuwait and Italy, in which their air forces train together.

    The Italian Air Force is providing air-to-air refueling with its KC-767A tanker aircraft, and the service plans to train pilots, engineers and technicians to support Kuwait’s Eurofighter fleet.

    The Eurofighter Typhoon is equipped with electronic warfare capabilities and a Mauser BK27mm gun. It can also carry various types of missiles.

    The aircraft can reach speeds exceeding Mach 1, and each of the jets sent to Kuwait have an active electronically scanned array radar. The aircraft received thus far have exceeded 400 flight hours in total.

    The eventual 28 Eurofighters will complement the Kuwaiti Air Force’s F/A-18 Hornet and Mirage F1 jets.
