  • FIDAE 2006: Chile celebrates delivery of first F-16s

    News | 21 Mar 2006 00:00

    <P>Host nation Chile has something to celebrate this year at the bienniel FIDAE air and space show – delivery of its Lockheed Martin F-16C/D Block 50+ fighters. The first two aircraft arrived at the Chilean air force’s Iquique airbase in January, and all 10 on order will be delivered by year-end.</P> <P>The six single-seat F-16Cs and four two-seat F-16Ds, powered by General Electric F110-129 engines, were ordered in 2002 under the $547 million Peace Puma programme. The landmark deal ended a 20-year ban on the sale of US weaponry to South America, and the F-16 is viewed as the air force’s “flagship of modernisation”, says Lockheed’s Chile programme director John Balderston. <BR><BR> <TABLE borderColor=#000000 cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width=445 align=center bgColor=#ffffff border=0> <TBODY> <TR> <TD> <P align=right><SUP><SUP><IMG alt="Chile F-16D W445" src="../assets/getAsset.aspx?ItemID=12009"><BR><STRONG>©&nbsp;Lockheed Martin</STRONG></SUP></SUP></P></TD></TR> <TR> <TD>&nbshttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/FIDAE-2006-Chile-celebrates-delivery-of-first-F-16s-205573/

    <p>Chilean electronic warfare (EW) systems specialist Desarrollo de Technologias y Sistemas (DTS) is hoping for its first non-Latin American export orders after Brazil took delivery of the company's mission planning software last month.</p> <p>The Brazilian air force ordered the Tactical Air Management &amp; Planning System (TacMaps) after it was used to plan sorties for the Salitre joint strategic air exercise involving the air forces of Argentina, Brazil, Chile and the USA at Los Condores air base in Iquique, 2,000km (1,240 miles) north of Santiago, in September last year.</p> <p>Salitre 2004 was organised by the Chilean air force and DTS developed TacMaps to NATO standards for the exercise, which simulated a low-intensity conflict.</p> <p>Brazil took delivery of the software suite last month and DTS – a joint venture between Enaer and Elbit Systems – says it is talking to "tens" of air forces including some in Europe and North America about sales of the system.
