After a carefully planned shift of leadership, R&D and manufacturing resources, Kimber has made substantial progress in the transition to its new, state-of-the-art headquarters in Troy, Alabama. The final step in completing this new facility is adding staff across all departments. Kimber’s new headquarters is situated on 80+ acres with more than 225,000 square-feet of space and is now home to industry-leading design engineering, product management and manufacturing capabilities. After an exhaustive search, Troy was chosen for a multitude of reasons including its proximity to top-tier engineering schools as well as gun- and business-friendly support from the city of Troy and the great state of Alabama.
Kimber’s Alabama expansion is well ahead of schedule, having filled hundreds of its planned Troy-based positions. Kimber is seeking qualified applicants across multiple positions and business areas including CNC technicians, machinists, quality control specialists, lean technicians, design engineers, compliance analysts, customer service representatives, materials planners, maintenance technicians, finishing operators, and assembly technicians.

26 Oct 20. Gibbs & Cox, Inc., a global leader in naval architecture and marine engineering, is announced the expansion of services into Houston, Texas. The office will be led by Mr. Todd Carrico, a leading innovator in naval and offshore marine engineering technologies.
The vision of the Houston Office is threefold; to add substantial value to the company by generating revenue in non-naval markets, developing and selling new products and/or services to non-traditional clients, and contributing to the successful completion of existing programs.
The timing for opening an office in Houston is fortuitous. Maritime, Offshore Oil and Gas, and Naval sectors are becoming increasingly interrelated through the use of new technologies. While Houston has long been associated with the Offshore Oil and Gas industry, it has become ever more diverse in the past decade. This has resulted in a hot-bed of technology development, open innovation, collaboration possibilities across industries, and incubation of new ideas. Gibbs & Cox plans on cultivating these attributes with our expansion into emerging maritime markets. Over the last several months, we have hired a number of staff from the Houston area and expect this trend to continue as we continue to grow with our recent contract wins.
Todd Carrico joins us as Director of the Houston office from SBM Offshore, where he served as the Technology and Business Development Manager, focusing on early project development for the SBM Offshore Houston Regional Center. Prior to SBM Offshore, Todd was the Seakeeping Division Model Experimentation Branch Head at NSWC Carderock, where he was responsible for complex model test programs, including DDG 1000 and the Orion Recovery test programs. He earned a Bachelor of Science in Ocean Engineering from the University of Rhode Island. Additionally, he holds a Master of Science in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering from the University of New Orleans. Todd is active in the Texas Chapter of SNAME as well as many of the international engineering conferences based in the greater Houston area.
In anticipation of a continued presence in Houston, Gibbs & Cox intends on opening a physical location once the COVID-19 pandemic recovery is underway. In the near term, the G&C office will continue to be virtual, with a growing number of staff working from home in Houston. (Source: PR Newswire)
27 Oct 20. Turkey Starts Construction of Third Warship for Pakistan Navy. The keel of the third MILGEM-class corvette that Turkey sold to Pakistan was laid on October 25 in a ceremony attended by top defense officials on both sides, local media reported. The MILGEM project, undertaken by Turkish National Defense Ministry firm ASFAT, to build four vessels is continuing as planned. The project represents the single largest export of the flourishing Turkish defense industry.
The keel-laying ceremony was held in the shipyard of Pakistan’s economic hub Karachi on the Arabian Sea coast, with Turkish National Defense Minister Hulusi Akar and Pakistani Defense Production Minister Zubaida Jalal Khan in attendance.
Speaking at the ceremony, Akar expressed his pleasure at being in Pakistan and underlined that the two countries’ excellent relations were unique due to their long history.
Ankara and Islamabad cooperate in many different domains, said Akar, adding: “Pakistani people, because of their invaluable support during our war of independence, have a special place in our hearts and minds. Turkish people will never forget the generosity of the Pakistani people with whom we’re always together both in good and bad times.”
For her part, Khan thanked Akar, as well as ASFAT, and all other contributors to the MILGEM project.
The MILGEM project will always be remembered as a symbol of Turkish-Pakistani friendship, she said, praising the brotherhood between the two countries.
The corvettes from the project will feature start-of-the-art sensors and the most advanced weapon platforms, the Pakistani Navy said on Twitter.
They will contribute to ‘maintaining peace, security & balance of power” in the Indian Ocean Region, it underlined.
Noting the Turkish defense industry’s improving capabilities, Akar said Turkey has made significant progress in many domains, thanks to President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s leadership.
He reiterated that seven Turkish companies were among the biggest 100 defense companies in the world, adding that Turkey was happy to share its knowledge with Pakistan.
The Pakistan Navy signed a contract with ASFAT in July 2018 to acquire four MILGEM-class ships.
In October 2019, Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, along with Pakistan Navy Chief Admiral Zafar Mahmood Abbasi, cut the first metal plate of the first corvette during a ceremony in Istanbul.
Turkey is one of the 10 countries that can build, design and maintain warships using domestic capabilities.
Following the ceremony, Akar and his Pakistani counterpart held a meeting to discuss further cooperation possibilities in the defense industry and bilateral and regional matters. (Source: Al Defaiya)
22 Oct 20. Indian Navy commissions fourth and final Kamorta-class corvette. The Indian Navy (IN) commissioned its fourth and final anti-submarine warfare (ASW)-capable Kamorta (Project 28)-class corvette in a ceremony held on 22 October at the Naval Dockyard in Visakhapatnam.
Named INS Kavaratti (pennant number P 31), the 109.2 m-long vessel, designed by the Directorate of Naval Design (DND) in New Delhi and built by the state-owned Garden Reach Shipbuilders & Engineers (GRSE) in Kolkata, incorporates stealth features in its design as well as 90% indigenous content, including the use of carbon composites.
The IN said in a statement that the corvette, which has an overall beam of 12.8 m and is capable of achieving speeds up to 25 kt, was commissioned as a ‘combat-ready’ platform following the completion of sea trials. Among other things, the Kamorta class is equipped with two licence-built RBU-6000 anti-submarine rocket launchers, one Oto Melara 76 mm/62 Super Rapid gun, and four Larsen & Toubro indigenous twin torpedo launchers for the locally designed Varunastra torpedoes, which have a stated range of up to 40km.

27 Oct 20. The Ecuadorian Air Force takes delivery of their first two H145s. Airbus Helicopters has delivered two H145s to the Ecuadorian Air Force, the first military customer in South America for this multi-purpose twin-engine helicopter. A total of six H145s will be delivered over the next year. The H145 helicopters, known as “Cobra” in the Ecuadorian Air Force, will be assigned to the 22nd Combat Wing in Guayaquil. The contract includes training for 12 pilots and 15 technicians, as part of an in-country operational training programme.
“We are very happy to have new advanced technology equipment to help face our country’s operational challenges, where high performance helicopters are needed to fly in the Andes at up to 6,000 metres (20,000 feet), in the jungle or on the coast,” said Colonel Franck Cevallos, commander of the 22nd Wing of the Ecuadorian Air Force.
“Thanks to the installed mission equipment, it will be possible to move quickly from a rescue to a transport mission, reinforcing the Air Force’s response capacity for disaster relief and other missions in support of the public,” added Colonel Chiriboga, Head of Air Operations at the Ecuadorian Air Force.
The six H145 helicopters will help with missions related to national security, such as border surveillance and the fight against drug trafficking, as well as carrying out rescue operations at high altitudes, medical evacuation (MedEvac) and assistance in the case of natural disasters, both during the day and at night. This wide range of mission capabilities is thanks to the variety of equipment included such as the cargo hook, rescue crane, stretchers, searchlight, electro-optical camera for reconnaissance, etc.
26 Oct 20. USMC establishes second F-35B Squadron in Japan. A second permanently stationed F-35B Squadron has been established by the Marine Aircraft Group 12 (MAG-12) in Japan.
A second permanently stationed F-35B Squadron has been established by the Marine Aircraft Group 12 (MAG-12) in Japan.
The Marine All Weather Fighter Attack Squadron 242 has been redesignated as the Marine Fighter Attack Squadron 242.
This is part of the current transition process of the US Marine Corps (USMC) to the fifth-generation F-35B Lightning II from the legacy F/A-18 Hornet aircraft.
F-35 is said to be the future of the Marine Corps tactical aviation and will replace the AV-8B Harrier, the F/A-18 Hornet, and the EA-6B Prowler across the USMC.
In January 2017, the first forward-stationed F-35B squadron was transferred from the US to Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni in Japan.
This is in line with the agreements signed between the US and the Government of Japan.
The MAG-12 is currently the only unit overseas that has two permanently stationed F-35B squadrons.
Okinawa-based 1st Marine Aircraft Wing commanding general brigadier general Chris McPhillips said: “The increased capability of F-35B along with our other fifth generation capabilities in III MEF enable us to support fleet marines, joint and allied partners on a moment’s notice.
“F-35B gives us the ability to dominate air and sea space and persist wherever we are without rival. It is an expeditionary platform that literally holds doors open for the Fleet Marine and Joint Force.
“F-35B basing in Japan is not by accident, it has occurred here more rapidly than in other parts of world, which is a testament to our commitment to Japan and the region.”
In 2018, the USMC Marine Fighter Attack Squadron (VMFA) 122 carried out the first flight operations in an F-35B Lightning II aircraft. (Source: naval-technology.com)
26 Oct 20. Leonardo delivers Eurofighter Typhoon to Italian Air Force. The Italian Air Force has officially taken delivery of the final Eurofighter Typhoon during a ceremony held at Leonardo’s plant in Caselle (Turin) in northwestern Italy. The Italian Air Force has officially taken delivery of the final Eurofighter Typhoon during a ceremony held at Leonardo’s plant in Caselle (Turin) in north-western Italy. The delivery completes an order for a fleet of 21 Typhoon aircraft to boost the country’s security missions. In 2009, a total of 112 aircraft were ordered under a Tranche 3A contract for Germany, Italy, Spain and the UK.
Leonardo CEO Alessandro Profumo said: “The collaboration path we are celebrating today, embodied by an aircraft with extraordinary capabilities, is the result of a long-term supranational strategic, political, and industrial vision, which has allowed Europe to have its own security asset, and benefit from a programme that has been able to represent a technological accelerator and a unique engine of development in the history of our continent.
“The Eurofighter Typhoon will be a pivotal element in the path of innovation, which is aimed at fully safeguarding European technological sovereignty in the coming years.”
The Eurofighter features technologies that increase operational effectiveness, survivability, and efficient management.
The Eurofighter Typhoon is used to safeguard the airspace of Italy, Europe, and other Nato countries and ‘represents an ideal platform for the continuous introduction of new capabilities’.
In December last year, the British Royal Air Force (RAF) Eurofighter Typhoon aircraft completed the contribution to the Nato Air Policing mission in Iceland to safeguard the country’s airspace. (Source: airforce-technology.com)
23 Oct 20. Gripen Officially Presented in Brazil. The Gripen E, named F-39E Gripen by the Brazilian Air Force (FAB), was officially presented today October 23rd, during the celebrations of Aviators’ Day and the Brazilian Air Force Day, at Wing 1, in Brasília. The aircraft flew over the air base after an air display of the Brazilian Smoke Squadron.
The ceremony was attended by Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, Brazilian Defence Minister Fernando Azevedo e Silva; the Swedish Ambassador to Brazil, Johanna Brosmar-Skoogh; the Brazilian Air Force Commander, Air Lieutenant Brigadier Antonio Carlos Moretti Bermudez; Commander of the Swedish Air Force,Major General Carl-Johan Edström; Chairman of the Board of Directors of Saab, Marcus Wallenberg; and President and CEO of Saab, Micael Johansson, among others.
“It is a great honour to see Gripen E at the ceremony in celebration to the Aviators’ Day and the Brazilian Air Force Day. I do not believe that there is a more appropriate occasion for this presentation, as it certainly means a lot to all Brazilian aviators to have the aircraft flying in the skies of Brazil”, stated Micael Johansson, CEO and President of Saab. “This is the result of a successful collaboration between Brazil and Sweden, and a great opportunity to further strengthen ties between the two countries”.
Lieutenant Brigadier Bermudez pointed out that the new fighter is soon ready to begin the operation by the FAB.
”The development and manufacture of the smart fighter has also been closely monitored by members of the Brazilian Air Force and involves professionals from several national companies. Therefore the 23rd of October is even more special this year, as we have the official presentation of the first F-39 Gripen that arrived in Brazil”.
The aircraft arrived in Brazil on September 20 and three days later made its first flight in the country, from Navegantes (Santa Catarina State) to Gavião Peixoto (São Paulo State), to continue the flight test programme.
In Brazil, the activities include tests on flight control and climate control systems, as well as tests on the aircraft in tropical climatic conditions. In addition to the tests that are common to a Gripen E programme aircraft, unique characteristics of the Brazilian aircraft will be also tested, such as armaments integration and the Link BR2 communication system – which provides encrypted data and voice communication to the aircraft.
The first fighters will be delivered to the Brazilian Air Force, at Wing 2, in Anápolis (Goiás State), at the end of 2021.
23 Oct 20. Sweden solidifies plan to retain Gripen C/D beyond 2026. The Swedish Air Force (SwAF) will retain a number of its Saab JAS 39 Gripen C/D fighters beyond their current planned 2026 retirement date, solidifying an earlier announced plan to make up an anticipated shortfall in Gripen E numbers. The plan, announced by the Swedish Defence Ministry in mid-October and confirmed by manufacturer Saab on 23 October, is part of a wider increase in national defence spending by more than 40% between 2021 and 2025 that was revealed by Swedish defence minister Peter Hultqvist.
Of the current six Gripen C/D squadrons fielded by the SwAF, four are set to transition to the Gripen E over the coming years. As revealed in Hultqvist’s latest announcement, the two outstanding squadrons will remain operational with their existing Gripen C/D aircraft.
In 2017 Janes first reported comments made by a senior SwAf officer who said that with only 60 Gripen Es to be delivered from 2022 through to 2026, the service was mooting the possibility of retaining a number of its 73 Gripen Cs beyond this final delivery date to address a numbers gap (it had already been disclosed that a number of the 24 twin-seat Gripen Ds would likely be retained as operational trainers).
Although retaining a number of Gripen Cs was an option, at that time there was no additional money to fund such a plan. As noted by Saab, not only is the money now there but a date of ‘beyond 2030’ has been set for their retention. (Source: Jane’s)
