The Norwegian Choice Of Fighter Aircraft - SAAB Comments

A video showing JAS 39 and JSF 35 to compare both and the news is JSF 35 won the race.

Norway had chosen the American F35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) to replace the Norwegian F16 air force fleet. The air craft Saab held a press conference on December 10 to comment on the Norwegian choice of fighter aircraft and to highlight a number of ambiguities in the Norwegian evaluation.
"During the past three years, Saab has participated in the procurement process to replace the Norwegian F16 air force fleet. Throughout Saab has experienced it to be a professional and open process and has had good relations to all concerned Norwegian counterparts.

We have provided answers to thousands of technical, economic and organizational questions. We have also continuously been given clear signals that the answers provided have been satisfactory. It is important for procurement processes of this kind that the potential customer has access to all information considered important to form a fact based decision. We have not once had reason to believe this was not the case. We were given reason to believe that the Norwegian government wanted a close industrial co-operation between the two countries, and therefore put great emphasis on finding strong and competitive co-operative possibilities."
The detailed report in next post.
