MOSCOW - As part of a long-term project, Russia will develop a new short-range air-defense system for its ground forces, according to the Russian Army Commander-in-Chief. The system might be supplied by 2030.

Tass News Agency quoted Commander-in-Chief Colonel General Oleg Salyukov as saying, "We will discuss tasks at a military and technical conference in Izhevsk for the development of an advanced short-range anti-aircraft missile complex and its place in troops’ air defense in 2030-2035."

At present, the military is creating a list of operational requirements for the future missile system.

Military officials will also discuss missile systems currently in service while meeting with representatives of the Kupol electromechanical factory in Izhevsk.

Currently, Russia's ground forces operate Tor-M2 systems as their basic short-range air-defense platform.

ANKARA, Turkey - The contract for the Armoured Amphibious Assault Vehicle (ZAHA) Project was signed between SSM and FNSS on March 7, 2017 in Ankara. Program was initiated by the Undersecretariat for Defence Industries (SSM) to meet the amphibious armored vehicle requirement of the Turkish Naval Forces Command.

In addition to enabling the safe landing of units during landing operations, armored amphibious assault vehicles also serve as armored combat vehicles or armored personnel carriers after reaching shore. During the landing phase of an operation, these vehicles are launched from landing helicopter dock (LHD) approaching the coast, and rapidly cover the several kilometers distance in between, allowing units to land with minimum delay. Once on land, they can continue taking part in operations side by side with other armored vehicles. As vehicles that have a dual nature due to their mission requirements, armored amphibious assault vehicles need to exhibit superior performance both at sea and on land. Only a few countries around the world have such vehicles in their inventories. Among NATO countries and allies, only a single company other than FNSS produces vehicles of this class.

Under the contract signed between SSM and FNSS, the vehicles will be developed and produced by FNSS based on an indigenous development model.

FNSS will deliver a total of 27 vehicles, including 23 personnel carriers, 2 command and control vehicles and 2 recovery vehicles. The technical characteristics of the Armoured Amphibious Assault Vehicles were determined by taking into consideration the operational concept and mission requirements defined by the Turkish Naval Forces Command.

Compared to similar examples, these vehicles are expected to be superior in the following respects:

-- Number of personnel transported by the vehicle,

-- Level of ballistic and mine protection, and

-- Performance criteria on land and in water.

HILL AFB, Utah - The Indonesian Air Force (TNI-AU) took delivery of a batch of four refurbished and upgraded F-16s from the U.S. Air Force's Ogden Air Logistics Complex at Hill Air Force Base in Utah on March 14. These four jets form part of a 24-unit Indonesian acquisition via the U.S. Excess Defense Articles (EDA) arms transfer mechanism. Each jet originally served with the U.S. Air Force and various Air National Guard units prior to decommissioning and storage at the 309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group open-air depot located at Davis-Monthan AFB in Arizona.

These used F-16s - each jet had amassed approximately 5,000 training and combat hours prior to being withdrawn from U.S. service - undergo a refurbishment and upgrade to Block 52 status (upon which they are designated F-16ID by TNI-AU) as part of a $670 million U.S. government-to-government Foreign Military Sales (FMS) agreement announced by the Pentagon's Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) on November 17, 2011. Ogden Air Logistics Complexes 573rd Aircraft Maintenance Squadron has conducted the restoration and upgrade work on these F-16s since the process began in 2013.

The TNI-AU received the first three of its "new" F-16s (one C, two Ds) on July 25, 2014. The latest batch delivery - involving three single-seat C variants and a lone D two-seater - brings the total delivered so far to 18 F-16s. The final six units are currently undergoing refurbishment and modification and are to be delivered to Indonesia later in the year.
