Citat:South Africa’s Paramount Group announced on 6 February that its AHRLAC factory had ramped up to full production, as a production-ready model of the aircraft with new features has undergone testing and demonstration.

The production development model (PDM) builds on the company’s testing experience from the AHRLAC prototype, with a raft of changes to the new aircraft improving the cockpit and performance characteristics.

Within the cockpit, these include an onboard oxygen generation system, revised cockpit canopies, and the addition of an ejection seat to the rear cockpit. The aircraft also features improved mission and avionics systems. The PDM also has retractable landing gear, and fuselage design improvements that have reduced the airframe weight and allowed it to be rated to 8G.

Jane’s has been told that weapons trials for the armed Mwari variant of the aircraft are expected in the coming months. The Mwari has been demonstrated carrying Mokopa anti-tank guided missiles but reportedly also has the capability to carry 20 mm cannon pods, 70 mm guided rockets, and Mk 81 precision-guided munitions.

The company’s AHRLAC prototype aircraft has completed over 300 engine hours of trials, with the aircraft also being deployed to various locations in South Africa for hot and austere environment testing.

Citat:Here’s what the rest of the release says about the Bronco II aircraft

“Paramount Group International Chairman Ivor Ichikowitz said, “This aircraft is a real game-changer for the warfighter. It is unique in that it has been designed specifically as a light attack and ISR platform from the onset. This is not simply an armed variant of a civilian crop-duster or a modified training aircraft. Every inch of this aircraft is designed for purpose – specifically for the kind of asymmetrical warfare that sophisticated military forces are now being asked to conduct. These missions demand rapidly deployable, hybrid ISR and close air support capabilities for which no other platform has been specifically designed.”

AHRLAC, the platform upon which the BRONCO II is based, is already in production using the latest advanced aerospace manufacturing technologies. The fact that the aircraft is 100% digitally designed makes the ability to industrialize the BRONCO II in its totality in the United States a reality. Work has started on establishing a manufacturing base that will enable the full production of the airframe and mission systems integration in the United States.

Ichikowitz went on to say “BRONCO II was designed with the US market in mind; it contains significant American content and we are now excited to be able to commit to bringing full production of the aircraft home to the USA.”

The BRONCO II’s internal Interchangeable Multi-Mission System Bay (IMSB) allows a single airframe to be easily and rapidly re-configured to perform multiple roles, incorporating high-performance targeting sensors, network communication systems, precision weapons, an electronic self-protection suite, and mission planning systems.

The aircraft is a purpose-built, sophisticated airborne Find/Fix/Finish/Exploit/Analyze (F3EA) system able to operate for extended periods in remote theaters with minimal infrastructure and a small logistics and maintenance footprint. The BRONCO II operates at a fraction of the procurement and lifecycle cost of an aircraft with similar mission applications and capabilities.

Fulcrum Concepts LLC will lead weapons and system integration for BRONCO II. Fulcrum Concepts Co-Owner and President of Engineering Solutions Scott Richman said, “BRONCO II is the ultimate solution to the F3EA capability, a truly multi-role aircraft with real-time C4ISR perfectly suited to the kind of light attack requirements we are seeing coming out of the U.S. military forces and a number of other programs in the U.S. market. We are excited by the opportunity to be one of the lead partners in bringing this innovative capability to the United States.”

Dr. Paul Potgieter, the CEO of the Aerospace Development Corporation which designed the aircraft, stated: “This aircraft is a completely clean-sheet, next-generation design, using the latest CATIA and digital design systems specifically for digital production. Even the factory in which this aircraft is currently being produced embraces the innovative principles of the Fourth Industrial Revolution by emphasizing the use of rapid digital prototyping, laser additive and 3D printing, and a jig-less manufacturing approach.”

Bronco Combat Systems has been established as a US based entity which will bring the aircraft to the US end user. The founding partners are Paramount Group USA, Fulcrum Concepts LLC, and ADC, who designed the AHRLAC platform. Bronco Combat Systems are actively engaging with other domestic U.S. partners to scale the entity in both capability and reach.

“This is a very exciting time for us, our partners and future US customers who will benefit from the rapid fielding of the Bronco II and its unique capabilities. Discussions are underway with highly respected and experienced US suppliers for total supply chain management, mission software, and mission training.” added Ichikowitz.”

Tačno su mogli da ugrade makar Mini-gun u turelu pod trupom. U kombinaciji sa HMSS Scorpion bila bi korisna za dejstvo van smera leta ili za odbranu od dejstva sa boka.

Citat:The AHRLAC PDM prototype has been moved into its parking spot. Not the addition of MAWS receivers, wingtip flare dispensers, underwing hardpoints, pylons, and formation lights. The tail MAWS receivers are in the same place as the Sysdel MiniRaven ELINT receivers on XDM

Rescue plan emerges for AHRLAC
Citat:A plan to save the development of the South African AHRLAC aircraft programme has been revealed by the company’s business rescue practitioner.
Released on 23 August, the plan envisages consolidation of the varied subunits of the Aerospace Development Corporation (ADC), which develops, manufactures, and delivers AHRLAC, into a single business by Paramount Group through two new South African-based entities.
The target date for the exiting of the business rescue process is the end of November, if ADC shareholders approve the deal.
