They are apparently removing the two-seaters from the OCU but some will remain elsewhere. Apparently, the bits are needed for spares. I thought we bought over 300 of the things and only have around 110 in service (remember, world’s fourth-largest defence budget 🤪); they must surely have bucketloads of spares somewhere? Mind you, in classic stores terms, they’ll be withheld in case somebody needs them.

Well being our own spares shelf is a step forward over being one for the USMC.

Goodbye to Grupo 22 P-3M Orions

Image

On Friday 16 December 2022, after almost 50 years of service, the Ejército del Aire (EdA, (Spanish Air Force) said goodbye to the Lockheed P-3M Orion maritime patrol aircraft at Sevilla/Morón air base.

Grupo 22, which controls 221 Escadron, started to operate the Orion in July 1973, when three P-3As were delivered to the unit. In total the unit operated six model P-3A, all ex US Navy and delivered to Spain under a Foreign Military Sales (FMS) contract and five P-3B which were acquired from the Luftforsvaret (RNoAF, Royal Norwegian Air Force). Three P-3Bs were modified and upgraded to P-3M.

During the ceremony, for which former and current members of the unit were invited, the final active Orion, serial P.3M-12/22-35, was treated with a water salut.

Two older model Orions are preserved, one as a gate guard at Morón air base and one at the Museo de Aeronáutica y Astronáutica at Cuatro Vientos. It is not known yet what will happen to the remaining surviving aircraft. The task of the Orion will be taken over by an unknown number of Airbus Defence C295W aircraft in the near future.

Overview of the P-3 Orions once operated by the EdA, nowadays called Ejército del Aire y del Espacio (Spanish Air and Space Force):

model P-3A
P.3-1 (c/n 185-5123, FMS BuNo 152153), reregistered as P.3A-01, stored at Cuatro Vientos for future display with the museum
P.3-2 (c/n 185-5119, FMS BuNo 152149), crashed 08jul77
P.3-3 (c/n 185-5115, FMS BuNo 152145), preserved at Morón air base, marked as P.3-03/22-22
P.3-4 (c/n 185-5033, FMS BuNo 150507), returned to USA in October 1992, temporary stored at AMARC, sold to Chile as 402
P.3-5 (c/n 185-5036, FMS BuNo 150510), returned to USA in September 1991, sold to Aero Union as N917AU
P.3-6 (c/n 185-5039, FMS BuNo 150513), returned to USA in September 1991, sold to Aero Union as N920AU
P.3-7 (c/n 185-5042, FMS BuNo 150516), preserved at Cuatro Vientos as P.3-7/22-26
model P-3B and P-3M
P.3-08 (c/n 185-5264, ex Norway 583), reregistered P.3B-08, upgraded and registered P.3M-8, stored at Morón
P.3-09 (c/n 185-5301, ex Norway 599), reregistered P.3B-09, upgraded and registered P.3M-9, stored at Morón
P.3-10 (c/n 185-5302, ex Norway 600), reregistered P.3(B)-10, stored at Sevilla-San Pablo
P.3-11 (c/n 185-5303, ex Norway 601), reregistered P.3B-11, stored at Morón
P.3-12 (c/n 185-5304, ex Norway 602), reregistered P.3B-12, upgraded and registered P.3M-12, stored at Morón

MAIW Polish Air Force Mikoyan MiG29 Complete Package

It will be necessary to adapt the FP to have all MiG-29 based at Malbork.
Polish Air Force MiG-29s moved to Malbork

Image

The Siły Powietrzne RP (Polish Air Force) transferred all MiG-29s, operated by the 1. Eskadra Lotnictwa Taktycznego (Tactical Fighter Squadron) from Mińsk Mazowiecki air base to Malbork air base (22. Baza Lotnictwa Taktycznego, 22nd Tactical Air Base), where they joined the MiG-29s operated by 41.elt.

Mińsk Mazowiecki will be the home base for the newly ordered Korean Aerospace Industries (KAI) FA-50 light attack aircraft, of which the first aircraft are expected to arrive in 2023.

The Polish Air Force can already look back to 33 years service for the MiG-29. The first twelve MiG-29s arrived in 1989 and were based at Mińsk Mazowiecki with 1. Pułk Lotnictwa Myśliwskiego "Warszawa" (Fighter Aviation Regiment). In 1992, the unit received ten former Czech Air Force MiG-29s.

A further 22 came from the German Air Force between September 2003 and August 2004. From the total of 44 MiG-29s, the air force still operates 29 in four different variants; single seat MiG-29A (5x), MiG-29G (7x) and MiG-29M (11x) and duals MiG-29GT (3x) and MiG-29UBM (3x).

In July 2022, Poland ordered the KAI FA-50 light attack aircraft. The deal, part of a larger defence contract between Poland and South Korea valued at USD 13,7 billion, comprises the latest FA-50 Block 20 configuration, capable of carrying AIM-120 AMRAAM medium-range air-to-air missiles. The first twelve aircraft will be delivered in 2023 and a further 36 aircraft in the years 2025 to 2028.

Deliveries of the FA-50 will see the withdrawal of the MiG-29 fighters as well as the Su-22M-4/UM-3K fighter bombers of which the air force still operates around eighteen aircraft.

MAIW Italian AMX

You can remove the bonus MQ-1C from this package.
The Italian Air Force Has Retired Its MQ-1C Predator A+ RPAS

Image
An Italian Air Force MQ-1C Predator A+. (All images: Italian Air Force, unless otherwise stated)

The MQ-1C Predator A+ Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS) has been retired after 18 years and +30,000 flight hours.

On Dec. 19, 2022, with a transfer flight from the 61° Gruppo (Squadron) APR (Aeromobili a Pilotaggio Remoto – Remotely Piloted Aircraft) at Sigonella, to the 32° Stormo (Wing) at Amendola, the operational career of the MQ-1C Predator A+ in the Aeronautica Militare (Italian Air Force) has come to an end. Noteworthy, the Italian designation for what was just an upgraded variant of the baseline RQ-1B Predator A was the same used by the manufacturer General Atomics Aeronautical Systems for the more advanced MQ-1C Gray Eagle.

The first Italian Air Force Predator unmanned aircraft were delivered in December 2004 and carried out the first operational missions in January 2005. Since then, the RPAS has completed over 3800 sorties, logging more than 31,000 flight hours, 20K of those were carried out by the 28° Gruppo out of Amendola, and the rest by the 61° Gruppo out of Sigonella.

Image
The MQ-1C is an upgraded variant of the baseline RQ-1B Predator A

Interestingly, 70% of the Predator A+ flight hours were carried out in operational missions and only 30% in training: some unique statistics among all the aircraft in service with the Aeronautica Militare. Capable of ISR (Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance) tasks as well as Target Acquisition in support of CAS (Close Air Support) and CSAR (Combat Search And Rescue) missions, the Italian Predators have been involved in numerous military and coalition missions abroad (including Iraq, Afghanistan, Kosovo, Libya, the Horn of Africa and Kuwait), where they have contributed to the security of troops on the ground through a precious monitoring and surveillance activities from above, in particular for the unarmed escort of convoys in a hostile environment, for the discovery of improvised devices and for the monitoring of operational targets.

At home, the Predators have contributed to the public order, search and rescue and environmental monitoring operations, flying in support of the Civil Protection Department as well as other civilian agencies.

“In modern operational theaters, Information Superiority represents an element of essential strategic importance, without which every effort and even the most modern system would be useless”, said Col. Roberto Massarotto, Commander of the 32nd Wing, during a phase out ceremony at Amendola. “To fulfill the new missions that were taking shape, beginning in 2004, the Air Force equipped itself with the MQ-1 system, an aircraft that is not fast, but whose persistence, discretion, silence, collection and dissemination of data capacity, along with the potential for dual use are unrivalled by other systems. However, the successes obtained by this platform would never have been achieved without the precious work of the men and women of the 61st and 28th Gruppo. A valuable and tiring job, which is carried out away from the spotlight, in silence, where no one can see or hear you and perhaps without being able to share, with those close to you, the satisfaction of a particularly important success”.

Until the MQ-1C was retired, the 32° Stormo and its two child units, the 28° Gruppo based at Amendola, and the 61° Gruppo, detached to Sigonella, in Sicily, operated a mixed fleet of MQ-1C Predator A+ and MQ-9A Predator B RPVs (Remotely Piloted Vehicles). With the retirement of the MQ-1C, the ISTAR activity of the 32° Stormo is carried out by the more capable MQ-9A Predator B. The Italian Air Force has acquired six of these between 2008 and 2009. One was lost over Libya in 2019.

The 32° Stormo is a pretty unique Wing within the Italian Air Force as it operates four different types of aircraft (five until the Predator A+ was phased out): the F-35A and F-35B Lightning II, the MB.339, and Predator B. Moreover, out of the three Gruppi depending from the 32nd Wing Commander, only the 13° and 28° are based in Amendola since the 61° Gruppo, as explained, is forward based to Sigonella, Sicily.
