EADS prepares its proposal for the Bulgarian Air Force. Me-109 will participate in the BIAF!
Will offer two options in response to the interest of Bulgaria to purchase a new model fighter jet, said Uwe Timke - Commercial Sales Director combat air systems of EADS. He said Eurofighter is the most - efficient and affordable at the time of delivery. The options are for new aircraft and second hand. The advantage of the second proposal is that the contract for the Eurofighter will be used to "politically motivated prices and conditions. The disadvantage is that such government to government transactions do not include offset programs and Bulgaria are needed such as to boost the national industry and economy, says Uwe Timke.
- Mr. Timke, what would be your response to an inquiry by the Bulgarian Ministry of Defence for the purchase of Eurofighter aircraft?
- Numerous experts from EADS, consisting of technical and operational specialists, experts in commercial offset and financial professionals formed an integrated team that is entirely focused on the preparation of a solid and affordable solution for the Bulgarian Air Force. The answer will be divided into two parts. The first will relate to the proposal and details of the acquisition of the brand new Eurofighter (the most advanced Tranche 3 version). Installation of these Eurofighter tranche 3 will begin in 2014 so that the first planes will arrive at airbase Graf Ignatievo just in time to be ready to fulfill the mission of the Bulgarian Air Force. This tranche 3 is absolutely identical to the Tranche 3, which the German Luftwaffe will receive in 2015. The second part of the proposal will outline the details of Transh a Eurofighter, which has been in operation since 2004, and in five vaorazheniie Air Force in Europe. If the Bulgarian defense budget does not allow the purchase of a new tranche 3 Eurofighter, EADS will get the required number of Tranche 1 aircraft used by one of the 5 countries in Europe for delivery in Bulgaria. This transaction will have to be subject to government conditions between the two countries. The advantage of this proposal is that the contract for the Eurofighter will be used to "politically motivated prices and conditions. The disadvantage is that such government to government transactions do not include offset programs and Bulgaria are needed such as to boost the national industry and economy.
- What would you suggest to the Bulgarian Air Force pilots?
- The plane that will offer Bulgaria, will be the most efficient and affordable at the time of delivery. It is absolutely identical to airplanes that are in the process of production to Germany, England, Italy and Spain. The only difference will be highlighted. The pilot, seated in the car will not see any difference. Bulgarian pilots will be able to fly the German Eurofighter, which are weapons in the country without notice any difference in technology and production. This is absolute top technology, all aircraft are compatible.
- Will you participate in the Eighth International Aviation Festival in Plovdiv, dedicated to 100 anniversary of the Bulgarian aviation?
- For EADS and the Luftwaffe would be honored to participate at this event. We feel honored that we were invited. To emphasize the serious interest of the German Government, the Luftwaffe and the German aviation industry in Bulgaria will illustrate p ounikalen way relationship between the two countries and their air force. EADS podtotvya flight of Messerschmitt Me-109 from Munich to Plovdiv. The aircraft will be exposed to display all users in Bulgaria. We hope that the Bulgarian Me-109 pilots who had flown together on Messerschmitt Luftwaffe in World War II will come to meet again with their aircraft and to remember their heroism. In parallel, the German Eurofighter will fly during aviofestivala in Bulgaria, which will allow you to see its possibilities. EADS is hoping that the 100 - year anniversary of the Bulgarian aviation will continue joint history between Bulgaria and Germany will find a way for future joint operations with Eurofighter Typhoon.
