    Brazil has rejected a contract for Boeing’s F/A-18 fighter jets in favor of the Swedish Saab’s JAS 39 Gripens. The unexpected move to reject the US bid comes amid the global scandal over the NSA’s involvement in economic espionage activities.

    The announcement for the purchase of 36 fighters was made Wednesday by Brazilian Defense Minister Celso Amorim and Air Force Commander Junti Saito. The jets will cost US$4.5 billion, well below the estimated market value of around US$7 billion.


    Saito said the development of the fighters will occur in conjunction with Embraer and other unspecified companies.

    The 12 Mirage aircraft currently in use by the Brazilian Air Force (FAB) will be retired at the end of this year. They were acquired by Brazil in 2005. As it waits for the new fighters, the FAB will use the F5 style, which will stay viable up to 2025.

    During a visit in Brasilia last week, French President Francois Hollande was accompanied by an entourage that included the president of Dassault Group, stirring speculation that the French jet manufacturer had the edge over Saab and Boeing.

    Competition over which company would win the right to supply Brazil with the fighter jets began in the late 1990s during Fernando Henrique Cardoso’s administration, continued during Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva’s time in office and into current President Rousseff’s term. A FAB report in 2010 indicated a preference in Saab, though then-President Lula leaned toward the cheaper Dassault jet, Rafale.

    Staff of the Secretariat of National Defense ( Department of Defense ) , said the newspaper The Critical Point the Mexican government intends to buy obsolete weapons to Israel in order to increase national arsenal is mostly obsolete.

    Not to mention his real name because of safety and through a telephone interview , said the military elements " that the lack of military budget 2013," the armed forces ran out of money to buy new weapons.

    Fortunately, the Israeli government offered an alternative , since the largest suppliers of weapons in the country - the United States, Russia wanted to not lower the prices of their products , same as if the Asian nation could.

    They explained that the real business of the Israelis is to extract gunpowder from bullets or missiles used in a previous event or belligerent military test , then melt or metal caps to be recycled later.

    Stated that this project will be called " Teuza " , which aims to get rid of their obsolete weapons in a period of five years for it to be replaced by new and high technology, at the expense of little nations military might.

    Among the weapons to Mexico offered tanks, guns , planes , warships , helicopters and air defense systems at bargain prices , themselves wanting to make the same Department of Defense is included .

    among the weapons the Mexican government plans to buy, are 44 A-4s Skyhawk attack aircraft , which were produced more than twenty years ago , and possibly were used in Gulf War in the early nineties, but now it is planned to be used to combat drug trafficking.

    Recall that Mexico right now experiencing a " security crisis " whose governments around the world consider as " guerrillas " mainly in the state of Michoacan where virtually created a siege by the Mexican Army was reached.

    The situation encourages the need for the security of the country must be armed with high-tech equipment that can be equated with weapons obtained by organized crime in most cases is superior to that used by municipal police .

    It is recalled that since the presidency of Felipe Calderon , the Mexican government began buying weapons first generation , as announced the Ministry of National Defense ( Department of Defense ), specifying the need for more and better weapons to counter the effects of the drug .

    Recall that for decades the Israeli army has sold arms to countries around the region to which Eastern found himself embroiled in several wars , same as strengthen the Israeli economy - media belongs .

    Although the speech Shimon Peres has been rhetorical in promoting "peace and security" between nations , it is not, it should be noted that a major Israeli industries is the arms , making it one of the most developed in the world.

    That is why the Mexican government 's intention to purchase Israeli weapons is apparently " a good decision " if you really want to modernize the country's armed forces , with the aim of a better way to combat the armies of organized crime.

    Moreover The Critical Point you to know that the Israeli army currently operates under a unified command , headed by the Chief of Staff, or the senses of that nation , agency autonomy and development budget allows arms sales and other goods to other nations.

    Note that this army has 187,000 soldiers and professional career staff , the Israel Defense Forces is based primarily on its reserves of 565,000 soldiers regularly calls for training and service. When reserves are mobilized in wartime , the army can add up to 752,000 combat soldiers , significant number for a country with only seven million people and whose participation can take between 24 and 72 hours.

    NATIONAL WEAPONS , INSUFFICIENT

    In 2009 , the Secretariat of National Defense ( Department of Defense ) conducted its last census of arms, accounting for just over 150 thousand 331 million cartridges , they would reach for a bout 12 days if another nation invaded the our .

    However, no federal agency " has posted again on national weapons " despite the increased senses Felipe Calderon , but this administration has not released the current Mexican military power.

    The above situation and underfunded Army have forced the government of Enrique Peña Nieto to negotiate the purchase of cheap weaponry technology manufacturers belligerent countries such as Israel .Gobierno mexicano le comprará armas viejas a Israel

    Luis Vasquez, Santiago - TheChilean Navy has received authorization to acquire a second sonar system towed variable depth of the Type 2087 -also known as CAPTAS-4 - Manufacturer THALES UK . The transaction has an estimated value of $ 20 million, as explained related to the operation of the capital of this South American country sources.
    The system will be installed in one of three frigates Type 23 British-made available to the Chilean navy. Another of these ships was already equipped with the same system in 2011.
    The Type 2087 is a system of low-frequency active sonar, consisting of a combination of active and passive sonar, allowing the detection of submarines at great distances and depth. In service since 2004 with the Royal Navy of the United Kingdom , is one of the most advanced systems of its kind.
    This team has allowed, according to military sources, to detect and monitor the presence in May this year of two submarines, one of presumably U.S. nuclear propulsion, and one diesel-electric propulsion belonging to Peru .
    The detection of two submersible occurred when they sailed international waters off the Chilean territorial sea limits, at the same time that Chilean units, including a frigate equipped with sonar system Type 2087 , developed anti-submarine exercises in nearby.

    The Institute of Aeronautics and Space ( IAE ) conducted the first test flight of the hot Stage Liquid Propulsion ( EPL ) model . The drive motor powered by liquid oxygen and ethanol was carried out on Thursday ( 19/12 ) on the test bench in São José dos Campos ( SP ) .

    This is an important step towards the consolidation of the use of liquid propulsion technology, as it is called the fuel used to propel spacecraft . Until then , the country uses only solid propulsion.

    Testing of Motor L5 with 5 kN of thrust , the integrated Power System Rocket Engine ( MDAS ) , allowed the functional check of all systems stage . Both were monitored and controlled by electronics that will be loaded in VS - 30 vehicle.

    The test also coached teams IAE and company Orbital for Operation Fox, scheduled for the first half of 2014 , when Stage Liquid Propulsion will be tested in flight . Conditions for integration , loading of liquid oxygen and sequencing of events were simulated flight . Ignition systems with pyrotechnic initiation ( IAE ) and Energy Supply , and Command Performance ( Orbital ) were also tested .

    In recent months all systems and flight models have been successfully tested , such as stock control, the qualifications of the pyrotechnic igniter , electrical and structural tests , among others .

    Support - The Power System Rocket Engine ( MDAS ) was developed by Orbital in partnership with the IAE , with the financial support of FINEP .

    The turboprop Super Tucano light attack , Embraer Defense and Security , can equip squads of counter insurgency and armed Lebanese Air Force reconnaissance operations . The Lebanese government is considering the purchase of 10 to 12 aircraft .

    Since 2010 , the transaction is part of the bilateral agenda of Beirut and Brasilia . Embraer is not commenting .

    The money for the business may leave the United States , through the Light Air Suport ( LAS ) program, which has included Afghanistan , where will the fleet of 20 super toucans bought for $ 427.5 million and produced in the factory maintained by the company in Jacksonville , Florida . Embraer Defense acts associated with the Sierra Nevada Corporation . The first plane of the package will be delivered this year .

    The Ministry of Defence of Lebanon is conducting international consultations to accelerate the modernization programs of all the local armed forces . Last week , Saudi Arabia announced a line of funding to support the project to a maximum of $ 3 billion . There are also resources pledged by the United States and the United Kingdom . On day 31 , the official website of the Lebanese military aviation revealed , without detailing the British offer of subsonic jets Hawk , support troop donates approaches , and training .

    In May 2012 , during a visit by Brazilian Defense Minister Celso Amorim , Minister Fayez Ghosn Lebanese stressed the importance of bilateral cooperation - and mentioned the interest in Brazilian aircraft .

    The international market for the A- 29 Super Tucano - A class dedicated to ground attack , armed patrols and surveillance light fighters , beyond
    close support to the troops and advanced training - is estimated at $ 3.5 billion , about 300 aircraft .

    The A-29 is used by nine countries . In the U.S. flies the only copy in use by a private company . Discussions are underway in the Middle East , Africa and Asia .

    With a load capacity of fighting in the range of 1.5 tons of missiles , rockets and bombs , and electronic assemblies intended to expand combat capability , the Super Tucano allows the use of special , lighter pumps and small diameter , directed to their targets for inertial guidance , GPS or laser light.http://www.defesanet.com.br/embraer/noticia/13709/Libano-estuda-compra-de-avioes-Super-Tucano-da-Embraer/

    I assume most of you realize this is mainly about Israeli defence subsidiary companies that operate in South America.
