Two Companies Shortlisted 29 November, 2017

Croatia’s Ministry of Defence has shortlisted Israel and Sweden for its tender to purchase 18 fighter jets for the country’s Air Force. Israel offers to supply the F-16D Barak aircraft while Sweden offers to deliver JAS 39 Gripen. 

Last month, Croatia announced that four offers had been shortlisted; new F-16s from Lockheed Martin in the US, second-hand F-16s from Israel and Greece, and Saab's Gripen aircraft from Sweden. This latest announcement means that the American and Greek offers proposals were discarded. 

Croatia plans to replace its Mikoyan MiG-21 fighter jets with new aircraft. The ministry is expected to make a final decision this year with the first jets to be delivered Croatian Air Force by late 2020.
