The Gripen gets a Brazilian (sale)!
|Wait... Maybe I phrased that wrong.|
Hot off of the Dassault Rafale being disqualified from its F-X2 fighter competition, Brazil has decided to declare Saab's Gripen as the winner.
With the Rafale gone, and the F-18E/F Super Hornet weighed down with the extra baggage of limited technology transfer and... Uh... American wiretapping, The Gripen's victory isn't much of a surprise.
|It's just a model... For now.|
Will this lead to development of the Sea Gripen? Will the increased orders help secure the Gripen NG's development and help Saab lower costs even more? Will this free up Saab's marketing department to start working on Canada next?
Let's hope so.
