Switzerland extends Air 2030 combat aircraft RfP

13th May 2020 - 13:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The Swiss Federal Department of Defense, Civil Protection and Sport (DDPS) has extended the deadline in its Air 2030 RfP for combat aircraft from August until November 2020.

This delay has no impact on the overall procurement schedule, the DDPS insisted in a 12 May statement, adding that the extension aims to provide manufacturers with additional time to strengthen their offers and overcome any COVID-19 coronavirus-related disruption caused by absent workers or travel restrictions.

A second offer request was issued in January 2020. As a result, proposals from Germany (Eurofighter), France (Rafale) and the US (F/A-18 Super Hornet and F-35A) were received.

In terms of the Bodluv GR air defence system (another aspect of Air 2030), the DDPS received offers from France (Eurosam SAMP/T) and the US (Raytheon Patriot).
