Saab Signs $5.4 Billion Contract With Brazil For 36 Gripen Fighters
Our Bureau 10:12 AM, October 27, 2014 3002
Saab has won a $5.4 billion contract for the development and production of 36 Gripen NG fighter for Brazil.

The contract was signed between Saab and the Brazilian Federal Government (Ministry of Defense through the Aeronautics Command, COMAER). Saab and COMAER also signed a contract for industrial co-operation projects, including technology transfer to Brazilian industry, to be performed over approximately ten years.

“We are proud to stand side-by-side with Brazil in this important program. There is already a long and successful history of industrial co-operation between our two countries, and this historic agreement takes that partnership to a new level”, Marcus Wallenberg, Chairman of Saab’s Board of Directors said.

The contract comes as a relief for Saab after Switzerland rejected $3.5 billion order of Gripen fighters in May this year.

The order comprises of 28 single seat and eight two-seat Gripen NG aircraft for Brazil’s air force. The delivery is expected to start in 2019, the company said in a statement today.

Brazil will receive a higher amount of technology transfer as part of the purchase than initially planned.

Though, not the 'NG' variant, still an interesting video. My take (probably less than 2 cents) on Gripen: relatively cheap and very capable, but no F-35A. The NG's avionics and sensors could be very interesting; but still not an F-35A.

Great pilot and a snappy routine showing an outstanding roll rate. When I look at this demo though, it's not doing anything I've seen a million times in the F-16. It certainly pales in comparison to the various Flanker, Raptor and now F-35 demo's.

It seems right for Brazil, but there aren't many other countries that can say the same. No way it'd be suitable for the Middle East, Far East etc.. This is going to be SABB's last hurrah, of that I'm fairly certain..

All I can say is that Gripen E has a weight similar to F-16C, but an engine less powerful than that of F-16A :mrgreen:

Looks nice with that paintjob!

However I also see dogtooths, strakes and splitter plates, something that you would not expect from a really modern design.
