Brazil can soon make a decision about the Gripen fighter jets

Friday, 30 September 2011
Brazil could decide on their purchase of new Swedish Gripen fighter jets earlier that expected in 2012. The Swedish Gripen is one of three fighter jets products that are competing for the multibillion-dollar order from the Brazilians.


In July, Brazil announced that the decision to decide on which one to buy would be taken only in 2012 because they needed to cut the state budget this year.

But now, Brazilian Defence Minister, Celso Amorim mentioned that there is no time to lose as the current battle jets are aging

The Gripen is competing with the French and American jets fighters to get the order.
