    The first military fighter to be fully developed in the country
    World wide interest in the UAE 's' B250' compact plane

    ...

    Calidus, a state-of-the-art technology company recently established in and headquartered in Abu Dhabi, has unveiled its new light attack aircraft with multi-task capabilities, B250, at the Dubai Air Show.

    The Calidus B250 is fully designed to meet the demands of modern combat in terms of performance as well as operating costs, which has attracted considerable attention from regional and international air forces. Its characteristics make it a strong competitor, such as the CAS, ISR / Reconnaissance and Armed Training Platform, equipped with weapons with multi-tasking capabilities on a large scale.

    Through its strategic partnership with Rockwell Collins, the Calidus has equipped the B250 with an integrated combat cockpit, providing the same advanced and leading aviation electronics that are found with the most advanced fighter jets.

    Among the important things about the future of the aircraft, it is worth mentioning that Calidus owns 100% rights of the aircraft, which gives users flexibility and operational match the multi-tasking role widely for the B250 aircraft. Also, one or two pilots can fly with full performance for both positions.

    "We have commissioned Novaer in Brazil to create the first fully carbon composite structure in its class, which alone gives a lighter weight to the aircraft," he said.

    In addition to its ability to carry a wide range of weapons controlled by the latest generation of precision assault weapon targeting system, we have an amazing competitor at an acceptable operating cost, both in its class and beyond. We have already embarked on the early development stages of our production line in Al Ain, which is set to become a center of excellence in the aerospace industry in the region, and we are proud to be part of the state's technological vision.

    Calidus is more like a project management company, the structure has been designed by Novaer (which makes super Tucano) designed the structure while Rockwell provided their new avionics suite.

    Yes I was expecting that. Of course it will have all the rights since it own the project and it is paying the money and other companies are working for it. Rockwell is basically selling its system which is commercially available and used in King Airs. By the way, even the name of the company Calidus is not local ... sounds very European.
