There is just one Antonov225 in use in Ukrainian airlines
The second commercial version of this a/c is due to enter service 2010.
Also missing is a proper IT system.
The C-130s that the Polish Air Force have taken delivery of are ex USAF refurbished C-130Es. As such they have an analogue avionics suite. So far the only C-130s to possess digital avionics are the J version and USAF Special Ops variants.
One thing that's missing is a warantee, so all the repairs are done at the expense of the Polish tax payer
This is because the Polish government failed, as it did with the 48 Block 52+ F-16s, to negotiate a manitenance contract as part of the procurement process. Normal practice is to include, initially, a maintenance contract until sufficient air force technicians have been trained to perform front-line maint.
One other problem is that the avionics don't work properly....
Probaly because these aircraft have yet to be fitted out in their operational configuration. Although I would add that they were flown across the pond and "handed over" to the Polish Air Force at Ramstein AFB, Germany on the 27/03/2009 and subsequently flown to Poland.
'our' Migs 29 were delivered without module to recognize alien-friend objects in radar
riend or F
oe. :) Handy bit of kit to have if you don't want to be shot down by your own side. ;)
48 of them I believe!
The last 3 were dielivered in Dec last year.
