Japan's military is lagging in terms of its digitisation, but a smart base experiment could begin to turn the tide.
Greece requests logistics package for HAF
The Hellenic Air Force (HAF) will receive logistics support from the US if Congress approves a proposed $165 million FMS package, the Defense Security and Cooperation Agency (DSCA) announced on 19 May.
The Greek government requested US technical and logistics support services and requisitions supporting the Foreign Military Sales Order II and Cooperative Logistics Supply Support Arrangement.
This involves stock replenishment, supply of standard spare parts, and repair or replacement of spare parts to support the HAF fleet; all other aircraft systems and subsystems; and other related elements of programme support.
The ability to place blanket order requisitions would improve the interoperability of the HAF with NATO forces ‘and enhance its ability to provide for the security of its borders’, the DSCA noted.
There would be no principal contractors in the deal, it added.
