Belgium will issue a request for proposals (RFP) this summer for a replacement of its F-16A/B fleet. A decision on the new fighters is to be made in 2018, but an election due in 2019 will need to be taken into account. The new fighters will be brought into service by 2025 with competition expected from the usual offerings of the big five; Boeing’s F/A-18E/F Super Hornet, Dassault’s Rafale, the Eurofighter Typhoon, Lockheed’s F-35 and the Saab Gripen. 36 new fighters are to be procured with $4 billion to be set aside for the purchases.
