Saab has submitted its proposal for 64 Gripen aircraft and 2 GlobalEye AEW&C aircraft for the Finnish fighter procurement in January this year.

52 of the 64 fighters proposed are single-seat Gripen E, while 12 others are dual-seat Gripen F. Finland has stated that it is planning a procurement decision in 2021, the company said in a statement Friday.

The contract includes necessary equipment and associated services to operate the aircraft as well as a substantial weapon and sensor package. Saab’s proposal also includes an industrial co-operation programme with the aim to build extensive national capabilities in Finland for security of supply. It features transfer of maintenance, repair and overhaul capabilities to local industry as well as aircraft production and establishment of a sustainment and development centre in Finland.
