Apropos, care-or fi planurile Braziliei? Ca prea se pregatesc de razbel…

Una:

Brazilia planifica o flota cu 20 de submarine, din care 6 nucleare

O prima transa va cuprinde 15 submarine, dintre care patru din ele vor fi din clasa Scorpion modificate, cu 100 de tone mai plinute si 5 metri lungime mai mult. A doua transa, de cinci submarine, cuprinde modernizarea a patru din clasa Tupi bazate pe tehnologie germana si un altul, apartinand clasei Tikuna, o evolutie made in Brasil.

Pentru reactoarele nucleare, se estimeaza ca incepand cu luna Decembrie a anului viitor, Brazilia va produce lunar circa 40 de tone de uraniu.

SEOUL — South Korea may send a special envoy to help a domestic shipbuilder secure a major Brazilian contract for warships, officials said Thursday.

Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering said it had submitted a preliminary proposal to Brazil, which plans to buy 11 warships in the form of a government-to-government project.

„We are in talks with government officials about the contract in Brazil,” a Daewoo spokesman told AFP.

The South’s defence ministry said it would consider sending a special envoy to Brazil.

The project is expected to be firmed up after president-elect Dilma Rousseff takes office in early January, the Daewoo spokesman said, adding his company expects competition from Italy, France or other European countries.

The contract, which reportedly is worth as much as four trillion won (3.5 billion dollars), includes destroyers.

South Korea has built its own destroyers and in 2007 launched its first Aegis destroyer equipped with advanced air and sea weaponry.

In mod cert, isi consolideaza pozitia de lider continental si isi vor manifesta din ce in ce mai accentuat influenta in zona… dar, ce va fi in viitor? A opta putere economica a lumii vrea ceva, cu siguranta! O felie mai mare din tortul sferelor de influenta?
