Oman's £2.5 billion Typhoon deal signals high hopes for British exports in the Gulf region

Signalling the continued growth of the defence sector in the Middle East, BAE Systems has signed a £2.5 billion deal with the Sultanate of Oman for the sale of 12 Typhoon Tranche 3 fighters and eight Hawk advanced jet trainer aircraft. The fighters, which will be manufactured from 2014 for a 2017 delivery, include the Euroradar consortium's E-Scan active electronically scanned array radar.

Following the deal, Oman becomes the seventh country in the world, and the second in the Middle East, to operate the Typhoon, joining the air forces of the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, Spain, Austria and Saudi Arabia.

Responding to the announcement Guy Griffiths, Group Managing Director for BAE Systems' International business said: “Receiving this contract is an honour and is excellent news for both BAE Systems and the Eurofighter Typhoon consortium. BAE Systems has a long history of working in Oman and we are delighted this contract will enable us to continue to work together. We believe that Oman has now added the most advanced fighter jet and proven training aircraft, available in the world, to its military portfolio.
“We look forward to working in partnership with Oman's Ministry of Defence, and the Royal Air Force of Oman, to ensure this is a highly successful programme that maximises the potential of both Hawk and Typhoon.”

It’s been a difficult year for BAE and the Typhoon: The Typhoon lost out to the Dassault Rafale in India's 126 medium multi-role combat aircraft acquisition and then the company came under pressure to present a realistic growth strategy after the collapse of the proposed merger with EADS. Furthermore, the deal with Oman was penned just days after BAE announced a delay to the contract to supply Saudi Arabia with 72 Typhoon fighters. Saudi Arabia, much like India, is concerned about the spiralling costs of the Typhoon.

David Cameron, the British prime minister, was integral to the deal and flew to Oman to finalise the paperwork. Cameron was unapologetic about exporting UK military assets, insisting that every nation has a right to national defence. The £2.5 billion contract will also bolster the UK manufacturing industry and secure hundreds of jobs.

“I'm determined to put Britain's first-class defence industry at the forefront of this market, supporting 300,000 jobs across the country,” Cameron said ahead of the deal. “The deal will safeguard jobs at BAE factories in Lancashire and Yorkshire, and small companies throughout the UK that support production of the aircraft.”

In 2013 Cameron is targeting the sale of 100 aircraft to the Gulf region in deals that could total £6 billion.
The Typhoon is currently in contention for the delivery of 60 aircraft for South Korea's F-X III competition. It is being pitted against the Boeing F-15 Silent Eagle and Lockheed Martin F-35.
