Saab to submit Gripen tender for Brazil
Saab welcomes the formal Request for Proposal (RFP) for the supply of new fighter aircraft for Brazil.

11/4/2008 | “Saab will submit a bid including 36 Gripen NG (Next Generation) to meet the requirement for future multi-role fighter aircraft for the Brazilian Air Force. We are convinced that Gripen NG is the perfect fit for Brazil’s future needs,” says Lennart Sindahl, Executive Vice President, Saab.

Saab also offers transfer of technology with unrivalled access, enabling autonomy and increased national security, as well as an outstanding industrial participation package that will generate partnerships and long lasting business opportunities.
Next year

Early October Gripen was announced to be on the short list as one alternative to equip the Brazilian Air Force. The issue of the formal RFP, which Saab will hand in the answer to in the beginning of February 2009, is the next step in the process. Brazil is expected to make a decision during next year.
