    Defying Congress, Trump sets $8 billion-plus in weapons sales to Saudi Arabia, UAE

    U.S. President Donald Trump, declaring a national emergency because of tensions with Iran, swept aside objections from Congress on Friday to complete the sale of over $8 billion worth of weapons to Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Jordan. The Trump administration informed congressional committees that it will go ahead with 22 military sales to the Saudis, United Arab Emirates and Jordan, infuriating lawmakers by circumventing a long-standing precedent for congressional review of major weapons sales.

    BAE Systems says working to deliver Saudi contracts after Germany extends export ban

    Leading British defence firm BAE Systems said it was working with the government to deliver its contracts with Saudi Arabia after Germany extended its ban on exporting arms to the country. Reflecting the Saudi situation, Britain's biggest defence company noted that it remained subject to geopolitical uncertainties as it reiterated its earnings targets for the year. In March, Germany said it would extend for a further six months a ban on exporting arms to Saudi Arabia which has strained ties with fellow European arms exporters with whom German companies have joint programmes.

    This Is the First Plane in History to Fly Without Wing Flaps

    The Magma model is flown by blowing air from its engine at supersonic speeds through slots in the wings. The technology is lighter, more reliable and cheaper to operate than conventional control surfaces, such as wing flaps, rudders and ailerons, BAE says. Built by researchers at Manchester University using titanium parts 3D-printed by BAE, the aircraft has made a series of flights from Llanbedr Airfield in north Wales, a specialist site for drone testing run by Snowdonia Aerospace LLP.

    Unpredictable German export policies threaten arms projects with France -French envoy

    [$$] Army Plans to Cut Back on Legacy Gear in a Push for New Tech

    WASHINGTON—The U.S. Army has proposed a 2020 budget plan that would eliminate or scale back some of its most enduring and best known equipment programs to free up money for investing in the weapons and hardware of the future. Two Army mainstays scheduled for cuts—the Bradley fighting vehicle, dating to the 1980s, and the CH-47 Chinook helicopter, first introduced in 1962—are known to generations of service members. The budget would divert money from the Bradley, Chinook and other programs to develop new gear including combat vehicles that use artificial intelligence and a precision-strike missile to double the firepower of current artillery systems, officials said.
