  • Brazil leases 12 Kfirs until F-X BR decision is made

    News | 06 Aug 2002 00:00

    <p>The Brazilian air force is to lease 12 Israel Aircraft Industries (IAI)Kfir C-10 fighters as an interim air defence capability ahead of the delivery of new fighters to be selected in its F-XBR competition. </p> <p>Valued at $91.6 million, the five-year lease covers 12 Kfirs and spares. A group from the Brazilian air force has travelled to Israel to examine and select 12 Kfirs from the Israeli air force's stored fleet, to be delivered next year. </p> <p>Head of the Brazilian air force,Lt Brig Carlos de Almeida Baptista, says the proposed lease is a temporary solution and does not mean the end of the F-X competition. </p> <p>Delays in an F-X decision and an impending election have spurred the defence ministry to consider a lease to replace the air force's Mirage IIIEBR/DBR fleet. Even if an F-X is selected in the next few weeks, the air force does not expect to receive its new fighters before 2007, three years after the Mirage IIIs are due to retire. </p> <p>Other options includedhttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Brazil-leases-12-Kfirs-until-F-X-BR-decision-is-made-152934/

Requirements are emerging in the region for new or upgraded fighters, surveillance and patrol platforms, air-to-air tankers and counter-insurgency/anti-narcotics equipment. </p> <p>Market analyst Forecast International/DMS projects a gradual increase in Latin American military expenditure from $28 billion last year to $32.2 billion by 2005 as local economies begin to pick up. </p> <p>Chile's planned buy of Lockheed MartinF-16C/Ds will not just generate an internal requirement for new support systems, such as trainers and tankers, but will also raise the level of competition for other regional powers.
