Insights on Fighter Jet Aircraft Programs - Featuring Boeing, Lockheed Martin and Dassault Among Others

·7-min read

Dublin, Sept. 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "World's Top 10 Fighter Jet Aircraft Programs - 2021-2022 - Program Factsheets, Strategy Focus, Comparative SWOT Analysis, Latest Contracts & Developments and Market Outlook" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The transition of traditional world order towards multi-polarity, marked by the resurgence of great power competition and escalating geopolitical tensions, has effectively heralded a renaissance for the Global Aerospace & Defense industry over the recent years with defense spending clearly on the surge & upswing. The rapid build-up of military capabilities by China and resurgence of Russia on the world horizon have effectively spiraled up defense spending across most regions & parts of the world. The global defense spending reached the $1.98 trillion level for 2020 growing by over 2.6% year on year for 2020 & 3% for 2019 echoing the Cold war-era trend

Fighter jets have remained a traditional & core pivot of the fighting capabilities of Air Forces globally with their significant role & capabilities for conducting aerial combat, interdiction, penetration of enemy air defenses, ground attack and air dominance/superiority missions & roles. The surge in global defense spending over the recent years has driven a rapid recapitalization of legacy fighter jet aircraft programs as a key priority with the initiation of a bevy of next generation aircraft programs across most parts of the globe for build-up of capacity & military capabilities. The replacement of global in-service fleet of legacy F-18 Hornet program is being pursued actively across parts of Europe and North America along with upgrade & modernization of the sizeable, older F-16 fleet & variants globally.

Around 250+ in-service Tornado combat jets are also due for replacement with decisions likely over near term. Other parts of the world, too, are accelerating & scrambling for the retirement & replacement of their Cold-war era, Soviet-origin legacy fighter jet aircraft programs with latest & next generation capabilities through fast tracked procurement of in-production aircrafts supplemented by scratch-up, domestic aircraft development programs. India, for instance, operates a fleet of 100+ MiG-21s while seeking replacements for them & other ageing aircrafts under the MMRCA 2.0 program and supplementing the deficit with the procurement of the home grown Tejas Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) program

In term of capabilities, 5th generation aircraft programs are already proving to be favorites to replace the 4/4.5 generation aircrafts with the Lockheed Martin's F-35 Lightning II stealth fighter jet program spearheading the charge & the generational shift. The 6th generation aircraft programs are also on the anvil geared towards the future with their potential EIS slated for late 2030s. Continental Europe is committing itself to the development of two such programs, namely, the Franco-German-Spanish consortium led FCAS program and the Tempest program being spearheaded by the triad of Great Britain-Italy-Sweden. In the U.S., the NGAD program collectively represents the efforts being made towards the development of 6th generation combat aircraft to be powered by the upcoming Adaptive Cycle Engine (ACE) program

Against this backdrop, the report provides a detailed, comprehensive analysis on the World's Top 10 Fighter Jet Aircraft Programs, including

  • Detailed Program Factsheets, including, Technical Specifications, Production Numbers, Variants & Key Global Operators

  • Overarching Strategy Focus across OEMs for the Programs

  • Comprehensive Comparative SWOT Analysis with Direct, Competing Aircraft Programs of Commensurate Size & Class

  • Latest Contract Awards, Upcoming Aircraft Competitions & Developments for the Programs

  • Upgrade Horizon, Projected Developments & Outlook for the Programs

The report categorizes the aircraft programs into Light, Medium & Heavy jets based on their Maximum Take-Off Weight (MTOW) and compares them accordingly. Also, single-engine & twin-engine aircraft programs and the 4/4.5 generation & 5th generation aircraft programs have been treated & compared accordingly. This is the one of the rare reports providing a comprehensive, Comparative SWOT analysis at the program level backed by deep domain competence & acumen
