TATV DEFENCE MONTHLY: April 2021

Posted 27 April 2021 · Add Comment

This month's Defence show looks at the Bahrain purchase of AH-1Z Viper helicopters - the first US 'Foreign Military Sales' deal for the type.

As Bahrain VIPs sign the first fuselage on the production line, we talk about how this successor to the Cobra will integrate with the other Gulf forces which I led by Apaches – and whether indeed there is a benefit.

Corruption in the defence deals often rears its head and Jay Menon takes a look at recent claims and at the robust responses by manufacturers.

Qatar and the RAF have come together to form a joint training squadron using the latest Hawk variant in preparation for the joint Typhoon operation. We look in some detail at how that will work both in the UK and Qatar.

Meanwhile India is looking at utilising its growing civil MRO industry to increase support for military action. Neelam Matthews reports from New Delhi.
