Qatar Orders 4 Additional C-17s

Mon Jun 15, 2015 5:55 pm

So four more white tails are now accounted for.

http://www.flightglobal.com/news/art...epeat-c-17-order-for-qatar-413611/

Last I read Boeing had nine white tails, so this would bring that down to five. If Canada takes one and India three, that just leaves one, unless it is part of the two Australia have ordered.

I believe this is still a current list of available frames:

14-0001 - 50271 - N270ZD
14-0002 - 50272 - N271ZD
14-0003 - 50273 - N272ZD
14-0005 - 50275 - N274ZD
14-0006 - 50276 - N275ZD
14-0007 - 50277 - N276ZD
14-0008 - 50278 - N277ZD
14-0009 - 50279 - N278ZD
14-0010 - 50280 - N279ZD

According to Boeing they had 5 left on Sunday, but now maybe only 1 left after the Qatar top up. Not sure how to interpret wording below.


Boeing Co said on Sunday it was in "deep discussions" with potential buyers for five remaining C-17 cargo planes built before Boeing halted production of the aircraft, and expected to sign purchase agreements before the fourth quarter.

Raymond said Boeing had eight aircraft left to sell when it decided to shut the Long Beach, California, facility where the planes were built. One of the planes has already been sold to an unnamed customer, and two to Australia, leaving five aircraft.

I thought that there were ten white tails?
2 x UAE
2 x Australia
1 x Canada
4 x Qatar
Leaving one left... The 'unnamed customer'...
It's not likely to be a 'new' customer purchasing only one... And if it was any of the above, or India or NATO, we would know about it...
My guesses, in order: Kuwait, Algeria, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, Singapore... Then perhaps another one for UK, Canada, Australia (but highly unlikely). The 'dark horse'? NZ, with a single frame to operate in conjunction with the RAAF...

Qatar got the last on off the production line, but I think that still leaves the third of the final 10 unaccounted for.

I have a bad feeling that the C-17 is going to end up in the same category as the A-1 Skyraider.

At some point in the future we are going to realize how good it is actually is and wish we had built more of them

14-0003 still remains unsold and sitting at KSKF.

Qatar bought 4 of them, they got 14-0005, 0006, 0009, and 0010. UAE got 0007 and 0008. Canada got 0004; and Australia got 0001 and 0002.

The last rumor I heard which was about 5 months ago was NATO might take it in a joint effort with the USAF if it isn't sold by the end of FY16. India's sale has quite frankly been a pain in the butt for Boeing. They were extra picky with all the details, and they were pulling that garbage again with the other 3 frames that they were trying to get. I doubt they will take the last one. Who knows, maybe Canada will spring for a 6th.

Just wondering, what's the latest on the 14-0003 - 50273 - N272ZD frame? Still sitting on Boeing books, waiting for takers?
India was mentioning multiple times they wanted three.
Then late last year, there were rumblings about buying one, if that was all that's available:
http://indiatoday.intoday.in/story/iaf- ... 38640.html
But has anything happened since?

As with the C-17s operated by Kuwait and the UAE, they're part of the Gulf Cooperation Council transport fleet and have been used for things like humanitarian aid, evacuation, moving equipment and supplies and mercy flights for the injured.

OK. For the general process of laying waste to the region while not getting any traction on pushing back Iran.

Take it up with the GCC member states since it's their statement on some of the reasons as to why they bought them. The UAE sent their C-17s to support the 2015 Nepalese earthquake relief, for example. *shrug*

My impression of the Qatari C-17s was to make the Qatar presence known on various humanitarian and disaster relief missions. They are giant flying flags, after all - I've seen A7-MAB and can vouch that you won't mistake it for someone else's C-17. Other than that, I didn't think that they flew much, as I have a theory that much of the military hardware in that region is parked and showed off, but not really "used" as such. And if they were involved in nefarious transport missions (which I doubt), I would even more doubt that they would use a giant flying flag of an aircraft to advertise it.

"In addition to the sale of the lone C-17, the US also approved is a sale of 22 General Atomics MQ-9 Reaper drones to the country, for $22 billion."
Huh? One billion dollars for each Reaper? Wow some Indian government/military would be filthy rich. Lets say there are 22 pockets to be lined, meaning each person will reap (pun) something like USD983 millions. Even if its tenfold at 220 persons, that would be 98.3M. Can someone tell be how to rub shoulders with those guys.
Seriously, I suppose, the writer mean 22 billion ₹ (Indian Rupees).

Still, almost 100USD per MQ-9 is still way too much. Should be more in the 15 - 20 million USD range, per copy without anything else. They are expensive, but not that expensive :D

But that is the key - as a new operator for the type, there are assuredly numerous ancillaries to the deal in addition to the base cost of the drones. I expect India will operate these from multiple locations, so that infrastructure will need to be replicated at each location which would significantly raise the price per unit beyond things like spares and training that can be amortized across all of the units.

The $17 million flyaway cost is something I expect only the USAF would pay for newly-ordered frames as they already have all that support infrastructure in place and would just be paying for the airframe itself.

Yes and a huge part many seem to forget is that a drone is only half the equation (and probably less that half the cost), it is a remote sensor and requires a staffed support system that manned by trained professionals along with an information transmission (think satellites, ground relays, server farms) and a "home base" etc. In addition to maintenance etc.

So 22 fly-aways and then add decades worth of support.

Exactly, Time did a cost analysis of US cost for Reaper during 2012 which can be found at the following link, http://nation.time.com/2012/02/28/2-the-mq-9s-cost-and-performance/

Because of Reaper’s nature, unit-cost estimates can be tricky. Various media reports cite a per-unit cost from $4 million to $5 million. They are quite incorrect.

Because they are integral to Reaper’s ability to operate, the ground components for it must be included, and a Combat Air Patrol, or “CAP” (i.e. the specified Reaper operating unit), consists of four air vehicles, not one. Accordingly, the Air Force factsheet for Reaper cites a unit cost not for one air vehicle but for a Reaper CAP (“four aircraft with sensors”) at $53.5 million in FY 2006 dollars (which would be $60.3 million in 2012 dollars).[1] But even that Air Force fact sheet calculation is incomplete.

It does not include development and other costs that are included in DOD’s summary Selected Acquisition Reports (SARs). The latest SAR available (from December 2010) shows a cost of $11.3 billion (in 2008 dollars) for the then-planned total purchase of 399[2] individual Reaper air vehicles and associated ground equipment.[3] In contemporary 2012 dollars that comes to $12.1 billion, which calculates to $30.2 million for each individual Reaper and its share of ground equipment, or $120.8 million for a complete, operable CAP of four.

So are we talking about 22 CAP units, so 88a/c in all? Then the cost would make sense.

If you read the last few posts you would have seen it's going to India.

IIRC though, the USAF was willing to sell a few C-17's if need be. So a ANZAC venture may not be impossible.
I was hoping the SAAF would pick up a few so they didn't need to keep leasing the Russian aircraft.

It's not over till it's over. Looks like India has not yet bought the lone available C-17, and this airframe could be back in play:

This is exactly why India used to avoid US metal and went Russian.

The "red tape" is on the Indian Ministry of Defense's side, not the US Department of Defense's or Commerce Department's. The US is preparing to rescind the deal because India won't commit whereas other C-17 customers appear ready to.

The "red tape" is on the Indian Ministry of Defense's side, not the US Department of Defense's or Commerce Department's. The US is preparing to rescind the deal because India won't commit whereas other C-17 customers appear ready to.

India's procurements are a mess the last few years.
