Saudi Arabian Erieye?
« on: November 17, 2005, 09:37:41 AM »
Quoting from wikipedia.com

"Swedish media report that systems have been sold to Brazil and Greece. Saudi Arabia is as of autumn 2005 showing interest. Swedish peace organisations, notably Svenska Freds has protested against the military negotiations with Saudi Arabia."

And from Svenska Freds (in Swedish):

Viggen, can you translate it for us?

Seems Ericsson has achieved great sales: Brazil, Greece (may excercise the option for 2 additional systems), Mexico, Pakistan. Now that there is an alternative source (Sweden), most countries decide for non-US weapons.
But I think the Swedish government has loosened a bit more the arms sales policy...
