Insights into fighter aircraft programs

Dublin, September 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – The report “The 10 Best Fighter Aircraft Programs in the World – 2021-2022 – Program Fact Sheets, Strategic Focus, Comparative SWOT Analysis, Latest Contracts and Developments and Market Outlook “has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com offer.

The transition from the traditional world order to multipolarity, marked by resurgent competition from major powers and escalating geopolitical tensions, has effectively heralded a renaissance for the global aerospace and defense industry over the course of in recent years, with defense spending clearly on the rise and on the rise. The rapid rise of China’s military capabilities and the resurgence of Russia on the global horizon have effectively driven up defense spending in most regions and parts of the world. Global defense spending reached the level of $ 1.98 trillion for 2020, increasing more than 2.6% year-on-year for 2020 and 3% for 2019, echoing the trend of the era of cold War

Fighter jets have remained a traditional and central hub of air force combat capabilities around the world with their important role and capabilities in conducting air combat missions and roles, interdiction, penetrating enemy air defenses, d ground attack and domination / air superiority. The increase in global defense spending in recent years has led to a rapid recapitalization of traditional fighter aircraft programs as a key priority with the launch of a host of next-generation aircraft programs in most parts of the world for capacity building and the military. capabilities. The replacement of the global in-service fleet of the former F-18 Hornet program is actively pursued in parts of Europe and North America, as well as the upgrade and modernization of the fleet and variants largest and oldest F-16s in the world.

About 250+ Tornado fighter jets in service also need to be replaced, with decisions likely to be short-term. Other parts of the world are also stepping up and scrambling to retire and replace their Soviet-origin Cold War-era fighter aircraft programs with next-generation and next-generation capabilities thanks to the Accelerated supply of production aircraft complemented by zero-up, national aircraft development programs. India, for example, operates a fleet of over 100 MiG-21s while seeking replacements for them and other aging aircraft under the MMRCA 2.0 program and filling the gap with the purchase of the local Tejas program. Light Combat Aircraft (LCA)

In terms of capabilities, the 5th generation aircraft programs are already proving to be the favorites to replace Generation 4 / 4.5 aircraft with Lockheed Martin’s F-35 Lightning II stealth fighter program, the spearhead of the load and the change of generation. The 6th generation aircraft programs are also on the anvil looking to the future with their EIS potential planned for the end of the 2030s. Continental Europe is engaged in the development of two of these programs, namely the FCAS program led by the Franco-German-Spanish consortium and the Tempest program led by the Great Britain-Italy-Sweden triad. In the United States, the NGAD program collectively represents efforts to develop 6th generation combat aircraft powered by the upcoming Adaptive Cycle Engine (ACE) program.

Against this background, the report provides a detailed and comprehensive analysis of the top 10 fighter aircraft programs in the world, including

  • Detailed program information sheets including technical specifications, production numbers, variants and major global operators

  • Global strategic orientation between OEMs for programs

  • Comprehensive comparative SWOT analysis with direct and competing aircraft programs of proportional size and class

  • Latest contract awards, upcoming aircraft competitions and program developments

  • Upgrade horizon, projected developments and prospects for programs

The report categorizes aircraft programs into light, medium and heavy jets based on their maximum take-off weight (MTOW) and compares them accordingly. In addition, the single-engine and twin-engine aircraft programs and the 4 / 4.5 and 5th generation aircraft programs were treated and compared accordingly. This is one of the few reports providing a comprehensive program-level benchmarking SWOT analysis, supported by in-depth competence and a keen sense of the field.
