Gripen International Submits Revised Proposal to Brazilian Air Force

Following extensive discussions with Brazilian Air Force (FAB) Gripen
International today submitted a revised proposal for new Gripen
multirole fighters to FAB.

The revised offer follows a period of extensive discussions with and
visits to Sweden by the FAB evaluation teams (pilot, technical and
project management). During these visits the Gripen team expanded on the
unique operational and support concepts of the Gripen aircraft and their
application in Brazil is now further described in the revised proposal.

The Gripen proposal is underpinned by substantial technology transfer.
The revised proposal presented today contains a detailed plan on how
Gripen International intends to undertake the technology transfer to
Brazil in order to ensure local autonomy. Together with our strategic
partner, Varig Engineering and Maintenance, the Gripen fighter will be
supported, maintained and further developed during its lifetime of 40
years.

"We are convinced that our revised proposal strengthens Gripen's
position in the Brazilian Air Force and demonstrates our commitment to
providing FAB with the most advanced and cost effective solution,
underpinned by technology transfer to Brazil", says Christer Ros - the
Gripen Director for Brasil.
