Nigeria: Air Force Gets Chinese Jets Soon
Daily Trust (Abuja)
14 February 2008
Posted to the web 14 February 2008
The first batch of Chinese made F-7 fighters purchased by the Nigeria Airforce is due to arrive the country early next year, Daily Trust learnt in Abuja yesterday.
A source in the Nigeria Airforce (NAF), who spoke exclusively to Daily Trust, said that already, the Airforce and the manufacturers of the fighter aircraft in China are fine tuning the process of acquisition of the F-7s. Daily Trust also learnt that some Nigeria Airforce pilots will soon be sent to China for training on the F-7 fighter plane.
The source did not reveal the number of fighter planes expected, as he said the Russian made Mig 21 jets which have been used by the NAF for decades are now being completely phased out, hence the need for the Chinese made jets.
"We are expecting the first batch of F-7 fighter planes from China in the early quarters of 2009. We can not say how many they are going to be, but we expect them to be about ten in number," the source revealed.
Similarly, the NAF is expected to receive one of its transporter planes (G-222) which is being refurbished in Italy, as pilots and crewmen of the plane are presently standing by to take its delivery from the Italian contractors.
"The refurbishment of the G-222 is simultaneously going on in Italy and some at our hangar in Lagos State are expected to be completed in this first phase," he said.
Earlier, one of the transporter planes in the fleet of the NAF, which was refurbished in Bordeaux, France, was received by the Minister of Defence in Abuja last year.
Information gathered by Daily Trust, also revealed that the NAF is soon to inaugurate its Institute of Technology in Kaduna State.
"The Airforce Institute of Technology (AFIT) will be a place for our manpower development and it is metamorphosing from a solely national to an international institute of technology where manpower development in the Airforce will be the bedrock," he added.
However the Director of Public Relations and Information (DOPRI) NAF, Group Captain M.G Abdul-Wahab could not be reached for comment.

Soldiers barricade the road with armored vehicles to stop protesting youths in the central Nigerian city of Jos, Plateau State, on December 1, 2008. The Nigeria military has deployed more troops and amoured vehicles to contain the ongoing civil unrest in Jos after two days of post-election violence between Christians and Muslims that left hundreds dead. The clashes were triggered by a rumour on November 28, 2008 that the majority-Muslim All Nigerian Peoples Party (ANPP) had lost in a local election to the mainly Christian Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), according to a police spokesman.

I like the fact that greatza1 is posting about the fallacies in the thread. They need to be addressed. Of course, they could be in a different manner. Frankly, despite his efforts people continuously post picture totally unrelated to Nigeria; so I can see where his frustration comes from. Either way, the bad mouthing comes from the mini flame war between you two. greatz1 may have been too harsh to soon, but kilimunati your response to everything is nothing but an insult. You do not even argue his points, only argue assumptions of his age and nature. To summarize, your both out of line, people need to stop posting false pics, and we all need to be a little patient.
Airforce soldiers according to the caption.
Can anyone ID the insignia worn by this Nigerian soldier? Thanks.
Greatza1, let just keep it civil to other members and you would not get people barking back at you. Flame wars like this can really ruin a good thread.
Also to other members, if you have a problem with another member, you can report the post or click on their name, go to their profile and add them to your ignore list (pros and cons to doing that).
What you are looking at is the embroidered version of the Nigerian Army's airborne qualification badge. The Army's school was established at the Infantry School in Jaji in 1986-87. Elements of the 10th Special Forces (Airborne) were brought in to assist in establishing the program of instruction and instructing the initial training cadre. At the time, I was assigned as the Assistant Army Attache and Chief of the Security Assistance Office at the U.S. Embassy in Lagos. Among my major responsibilities was the standup of the Airborne and Amphibious Warfare Schools within the Nigerian Army.
In addition to the embroidered version of the wing depicted in the photo, I also have bright and subdued metal versions of the intial locally produced wing in my collection.
