Looking Back on 2020: Orders and Deliveries

Key.Aero provides a general overview of the most notable military aircraft orders, deliveries and Foreign Military Sale (FMS) notifications that were announced in 2020. A cut-off date of November 30 has been incorporated for this list, in line with the press date of our sister print publication, AirForces Monthly. 

GlobalEye [Saab]
Saab GlobalEye (Bombardier Global 6000) airborne early warning and control aircraft, serial SE-RMU (c/n 9787, ex C-FSYV) in flight. This aircraft was delivered to the United Arab Emirates Air Force and Air Defence on September 30. This was the second of three on order, the first having been delivered on April 29. Saab

For ease of reference and to avoid presenting this as one very long list, the tables have been divided up, covering orders first and then deliveries. The information within each of these two sections has been further separated into regions of the world. The final portion, of potential sales notified by the US Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA), has been similarly split.
