AFAIK : the FCAS is to replace EF and Rafale. For the replacement of the Tornado there are today 4 "contenders" : "modified" EF, F-35, F-18 and F-15.

This previous project (last year AFAIR) of Airbus (the plane shown in the link) is still available for the replacement of the Tornado ?

NEFE page shows something generic that resembles Airbus DS 'New Fighter' Concept from 2017.
Now Franco-German FCAS/SCAF study is ledaded by Dassault as a leader, there won't be domestic German FCAS.

As shown at 2017 Berlin Security Conference :)

When I attended ILA 2018 at the end of April, there were a pair of Luke AFB's F-35A on static and F-35A mock up (aimed at Luftwaffe) Those of us who sat in it got the hat (cap) lol tp prove it....



rest of my photos below

















Was chatting to a Belgian contact at the show, subsequently he was laying bets that the F-35 has good chance with both his country and Germany. This simply attributed to both countries NATO nuclear capability and commitment. The Typhoon has not been cleared to carry a 'bucket of sunshine' cue last week, Belgium selected the F-35 over the Typhoon.
Now could Germany follow suit by example? What are the chances the F-35A can be in the apple of the Bundestag's eyes?

Slightly digressing, funding has been made available by the Federal Government in Berlin, for urgent procurement of the CH-53G/GS/GA fleet with either the CH-53K or CH-47F. If L-M Sikorsky wins with the King Stallion, then could it open the doors for F-35 procurment?

Cheers
