The Swedish Defence and Security Export Agency FXM has responded to request for information from Croatia for procuring Gripen aircraft. 

The request concerns 8 to 12 newly built aircraft of the C and D model, the company announced last week.

The request for information that FXM responded to was sent from the Croatian Ministry of Defence in June this year. Sweden has had a positive dialogue with Croatia regarding the Gripen since the year 2007.

With today’s answer FXM wishes to emphasize that Croatia is seen as a possible valuable future Gripen partner in an important region where other countries already are flying the Gripen.

JAS Gripen is operational in the Czech Republic, Hungary, Sweden, South Africa and Thailand. Brazil has procured the next generation Gripen, Gripen NG.

FXM is negotiating with Brazil on an interim solution regarding Gripen C/D. FXM is also negotiating with Slovakia, also here the negotiations concern the Gripen C and D.
