According to Infodefensa, the Colombian Air Force’s Air Combat Command has issued on July 5th a report on the current status of the IAI Kfir COA fleet, comprised now of 3 twin seaters and 19 single seater aircraft, which are supported by Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) Lahav Division. Among specifics in which of the aircraft are in service or not, the main concern is related to depot maintenance or budget cuts in which the Air Force is under that causes delays on pending field level maintenance, since they acknowledge that IAI is in full compliance of their 128-00-A-COFAC-CAF-2018. Having demonstrated its new systems and capabilities in a fair transition to the 4th generation, colombian Kfirs fall short on providing a fully-fledged deterrence against, although in desperate need of an upgrade, Venezuelan Su-30MK2. The Venezuelan Sukhois, probably with russian assistance, are being brought back to service. A few days ago, the F-Air Colombia expo took place where aviation and defense related industries have gathered and to that effect, Airbus, Lockheed Martin and Saab have presented their proposals for Eurofighter Typhoon Tranche III, F-16V Block 70 and JAS-39NG respectively.
