Initial stages of OPV construction process at CDDL have already started that's what I have been told by an ex-naval officer.  

You mean like keel laying? Based on which design? Partnering with which company?

That’s a buzz kill, AFD rejecting AW-152 wildcats and going for MH-60R Sea Hawks instead. Maybe the Seahawks are from surplus US military stock. The price must have been substantially reduced due to that factor.

Bangladesh Navy is purchasing brand new helicopters through FMS route and not EDA (surplus).

The realisation of our collection dreams are finally coming true with 2020 set to be a grand year for the Bangladesh Air Force in particular.

Patiently and eagerly looking forward to it. I hope BAF accomplishes and realises all the dream acquisitions on their part and on our part as well.

Let's hope the next 3 years is a dream year for the BAF. Finally, we'd be able to overcome the decades we were behind and be ahead for once.

Primary trainers | Light transport aircraft | MRAP mounted jammers - what are the possible models?

  • Primary trainer: Hurkus-B - BAF officials have not visited any other countries for primary trainers from what I know.
  • Light transport aircraft: Let L410NG - Follow on order for more advanced version reportedly outfitted in VVIP profile.
  • MRAP with jammers: Cobra II - Its a follow on order with eventual requirement for 800+ units of Cobra LAV.

From the quantities, it seems like Cobras are gonna be more generally deployed MRAPs and the MaxxPro ones are gonna be for special units? Please forgive me if this was answered before but I'm a bit confused.

Are you trying to suggest BD Army is wasting its resources?

To save from further confusion there is a wide gulf of difference between Cobra and Cobra II (follow up on it via Google search). MaxxPro Dash are purpose built MRAPs and will be used as MRAPs for mechanised infantry (the regular, and not some imagined special unit).

Oh no definitely not wasting resources. Army has been buying quality stuff and there's no argument to that. The quantities were what confused me. I meant Cobra IIs when I said Cobras. I just wanted to know which divisions will be using it and if there's an inherent difference in their abilities that's all. Thanks for clearing that out.
