Czech Air Force boss: ‘six more Gripens wanted’Czech Air Force Libor Stefanik stated on Tuesday 11 November 2014 that his air force needs six more Saab JAS-39 Gripen on top of fourteen aircraft already in service. The reinforcements are needed amidst rising tensions to the east of Europe, Stefanik says. His remark comes at a time when thoughts of a combined Czech-Slovak Saab Gripen fleet are heard more often.(...)However, talks are ongoing between Sweden and Slovakia on the lease of Gripens to replace Slovakia’s MiG-29 Fulcrums. A combined Czech-Slovak Gripen fleet seems a very real possibility. Slovakia and the Czech Repblic were a single country not to lang ago, after all. Talks of joining military forces are heard every now and then. In any case, Slovak pilots already are regular visitors of the Tactical Simulation Center (TSC) in the Czech Republic, featured in this exclusive Airheadsfly.com story. The center features tactical Saab Gripen simulators.With his personal thoughts, Stefanik seemingly wants to point out that future Slovak Gripens are also in the interest of the Czech Republic. Point made.

The odds are in favour of the SAAB JAS 39E/F Gripen to become the next multirole fighter of the Finnish Air Force (Ilmavoimat), with the French Dassault Rafale in very close range, according to Scandinavian sources on 6 April 2015.Finland has slowly started with looking for a replacement for its 55 McDonnell Douglas (Boeing) F/A-18C Hornet single-seat and 7 F/A-18D two-seat multirole fighters. With the race officially starting coming Autumn, the participants are already warming up their engines.(...)With both Helsinki and Stockholm having agreed to increased cooperation between their defence organisations, a combined Finnish-Swedish combat jet fleet with the same type of aircraft would make matters even more easier in case both nations choose to act together in their defence against enemies like, let’s say, Russia. Not only from a military tactical point of view, but certainly from a logistical one. Any battle is easily lost with a failing flow of spare parts.The Swedish Gripen – from a Finnish point of view produced just a short hop by boat or plane across the Gulf of Bothnia / Baltic Sea – is currently undergoing a very interesting update which gives us already a brief look in the new capabilities Next Generation dubbed Gripen E/F. That new Gripen will be the one that the Brazilian Air Force (36 or more) is buying and that the Swedish Air Force (60 or more) has ordered. Finland is not that far yet, but has requested and received classified documents on the capabilities of the Gripen. This has now confirmed by sources within both the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) and within the government in Stockholm.(...)But the race is far from done. Just before Easter, the Finnish Chief of Defence went along for a French Air Force training mission in the backseat of a Dassault Rafale B, flying in formation with at least one other Rafale after take-off from Base Aérienne 113 Saint-Dizier (St. Dizier Airbase), situated east of Paris. As happy of any of us would be, General Jarmo Lindberg tweeted about his Rafale adventure. During earlier trials in Switzerland – where the Gripen competed against the Rafale – the Swiss Air Force said to have been very impressed by the French jet’s performances, but the Swiss government choose the Gripen because it was deemed financially a better choice, with the Swiss population shooting down the governments purchase decision leaving the Swiss Air Force without a successor to the aging and slowly obsolete Northrop F-5 fighter-bombers.[continua]
Buenos Aires, 7/4/2015 – Os ministérios da Defesa do Brasil e da Argentina assinaram declaração conjunta iniciando conversações para a venda de 24 caças Gripen NG para a Força Aérea do país platino.A previsão do negócio consta da “Declaração pela Democracia e a Paz”, assinada pelo ministro Jaques Wagner e seu par argentino, Agustín Rossi, após reunião bilateral realizada nesta terça-feira (7), na capital Argentina.Em sua primeira viagem oficial ao exterior à frente da Defesa, Jaques Wagner destacou a escolha da Argentina como o primeiro país a ser visitado por ele e o caráter estratégico da aliança com aquele país, considerado fundamental para a integração regional da América do Sul. O ministro disse que foi uma decisão política que atende ao interesse de fortalecer a parceria e a cooperação no campo da defesa.Já Augustín Rossi, além de abrir as negociações para a compra dos 24 caças Gripen NG, também reiterou a intenção platina de adquirir seis aeronaves cargueiros KC-390 – projeto brasileiro que tem os argentinos como parceiros em seu desenvolvimento.
La posibilidad de un veto del Reino Unido a la venta de los Gripen a la Argentina fue descartada por la Fuerza Aérea (argentina) . Los componentes de origen británico del aviòn sueco pueden ser sustituidos por otros de proveedores calificados. La administración británica, a través del Departamento de Negocios, Innovación y Formación, mantiene un veto para asegurar que ningún equipo con licencia de exportacìón británica sea empleado por la Argentina "para imponer un bloqueo económico a los ciudadanos de las Islas Malvinas".
Com o suposto intuito de "atacar", destila desconhecimento e mediocridade.Pobre diabo.
On February 2006, a 36 unit sale for Venezuela fell through because it was thought the USA would block the transfer of US-built components. Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez claimed the U.S. was responsible for pressuring Brazil not to sign the contract.
Me parece que o estereótipo que os brasileiros têm dos portugueses faz todo sentido, se é que me entende.
