BRASILIA - Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI) has signed an agreement with Embraer to provide aerostructure components for both civil and military aircraft. No official announcement has been made yet, but the news has been reported in multiple outlets.

Under the KRW278 billion ($244.8 million) deal, South Korea's aircraft manufacturer will provide wing panels for the Embraer E-190 E2 and E195 E2 commercial airliners and top and bottom fuselage panels for the KC-390 military transport.

With the agreement, KAI now provides components to all four global aircraft manufacturers: Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier, and now Embraer.

The announcement is also important for Embraer as it continues to make progress on KC-390 development. The two prototype KC-390s currently flying have accumulated more than 850 flight hours, combined. Performance has met predicted parameters, and both aircraft have had high availability. The Brazilian Instituto de Fomento e Coordenação Industrial (IFI) awarded a provisional type certificate to Embraer for the KC-390 in November 2016, indicating that the KC-390 in its basic configuration complies with certification standards. Initial operational capability (IOC) is expected by the end of 2017 and formal deliveries to the Brazilian Air Force are expected to begin in 2018.

PARIS - A project to provide the French Navy with new class of warships got underway on April 21 as France' Defense Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian launched the construction process being undertaken by French naval shipbuilding giant DCNS. The project calls for construction of five "Belharra"-class intermediate frigates, or Fregate de Taille Intermediaire (FTIs). The French Defense Ministry announced the project back on October 18, 2016.

The new class of FTIs will serve as the successor to the French Navy's current 2,500-ton Lafayette-class of ships brought into service between 1995 and 2001. The 4,000-ton ships will provide the French Navy with a warship that fits between the FREMM multi-mission frigates and the Gowind corvettes and will enable the Navy to put to sea 15 top-of-the-line frigates by 2030.

The first of the five new Belharra FTIs will enter operational service in 2025.
