Colombia May Acquire Gripen Fighters Produced in Brazil 16 March, 2020

Colombian Air Force is considering ordering 15 units of aircraft to replace its Israeli Kfir

If Colombia decides to purchase Saab Gripen fighters, aircraft production may take place in neighbouring Brazil. That’s what the Swedish manufacturer’s new CEO, Micael Johansson, told a Brazilian newspaper.

Johansson said that the pool of Brazilian companies that today is responsible for part of the supply of fighter jets to the Brazilian Air Force could be used as a platform for final assembly and testing of the aircraft. Saab is offering the Colombian air force 12 single-seat Gripen E fighters and three two-seat Gripen Fs.
