L’Eurofighter è un aereo da caccia multiruolo di progettazione degli anni ottanta: è vecchio di quaranta anni, e li dimostra tutti. Per un aereo da caccia quaranta anni sono come quaranta anni per una spogliarellista.

Se non è stato un buon affare per le aeronautiche che lo hanno adottato per motivi politici, è stato un ottimo affare per tutti i partiti socialisti europei che hanno potuto sostenere i loro leader ed i loro cari, mentre invece è stato un pessimo affare per il Cittadino Contribuente.

Dio solo sa quanto sia stato speso per progettare, costruire e manutenere questo bersaglio mobile. Per i russi sarebbe come sparare in poligono alle pipe di gesso.

Bloomberg. 2017-04-26. Airbus CEO Investigated by Austrian Prosecutors Over Eurofighter

– Tom Enders among list of individuals subject to the probe

– CEO headed defense division at the time of deal in 2003

*

Airbus SE said Austrian prosecutors are investigating Chief Executive Officer Tom Enders as part of a probe into alleged fraud in the 2 billion-euro ($2.2 billion) sale of Eurofighter jets to that country’s government in 2003.

Vienna prosecutors on Wednesday informed Airbus that everyone identified in a defense ministry report issued in February — including Enders — is under investigation, Airbus said in an email. The report alleged that Airbus knew that the jets wouldn’t be available on time in the right configuration and that Austria was overcharged by about 183 million euros for expenses that included lobbying and kickbacks.

“As we have repeatedly stated, we consider the accusations as completely unsubstantiated,” Airbus said in an emailed statement. Airbus has previously dismissed the probe as being politically motivated.

Prosecutor Nina Bussek didn’t answer calls after office hours. Reuters reported the details of the investigation earlier on Wednesday.

Criminal Inquiry

The prosecutors opened a criminal inquiry in February into whether Airbus deceived Austria’s government when it sold the Eurofighter jets. Austria’s two largest opposition parties also pushed for the creation of a parliamentary probe into the decision to buy the Eurofighter instead of the Saab AB Gripen.

Enders was the head of the defense division of the group at the time of the sale.

The Austrian defense ministry is itself seeking as much as 1.1 billion euros in damages from Airbus, according to its report.
