Dassault, Airbus and partners win Phase 1A contract for FCAS

https://www.airforce-technology.com/new ... e-1a-fcas/

A consortium of Dassault Aviation, Airbus and other partners has received an initial framework contract (Phase 1A) for the development of a next-generation combat jet.

The other partners include MTU Aero Engines, Safran, MBDA and Thales.

In 2017, France and Germany agreed to jointly work on the future air combat system.

The 18-month contract has been awarded by the governments of France and Germany for the launch of the demonstrator phase for the Future Combat Air System (FCAS).

Preliminary work under the deal includes the development of demonstrators and innovative, advanced technologies.

Test flights are expected to commence by 2026.

Win? Agains whom? :D

As I understand from tge article, Dassault will be mostly responsible for the "fighter" while Airbus concentrates on the drones.

It will be interesting to watch their timeline. It took 6-7 years for ATF and JSF to go from X plane's first flight to that of a production version and about ten years more to achieve IOC. So if they get this thing into service before 2040 I say job well done.
