Re: September 2021: Falcon Leap / Market Garden / Airborne herdenking, etcetera...

...so far, the rumoured Luftwaffe C-160D Transall is noted for its' absence, it seems... :( Most probably cancelled as LTG63 trained their „Trall-Ballet“ on 14 September and they definitely need all their aircraft active for the fly-out on 23 September.

The eight new helicopters are destined for the French Air Force, not the French Army.

Re: F-35 Lightning II developments

F-35A query
I am looking for the identity of F-35A xx-5285 (FY/FMS 17-xx or 18-xx). I think this is an Italian one, but I am not sure.

Second question: is there already an indication of the users for FY/FMS xx-5452 to xx-5506

Re: April 2021 Portugal: Embraer Super Tucano acquisition is due, apparently...

No formal decision has been published yet. It is however highly likely. Total numbers are reported/rumoured to be ten Super Tucanos. In November 2020, Scramble Magazine reported on a possible sale of the Super Tucano to Portugal. https://www.scramble.nl/military-news/portuguese-air-force-interested-...

Correct, so far already three F-16s received the new paintjob. E-005, E-007 and E-011.
Maybe some more will receive the new colours.
