  • IN FOCUS LATAM DEFENCE FIGHTERS: South American air forces count the pennies, kick the tyres

This is true especially after the surprise Brazilian government decision in December 2013 to close its decade-long F-X programme by selecting the Saab Gripen NG (now known officially as the E/F). The advanced age of the fleets and prospect of a locally manufactured fighter model potentially sets the stage for another sweeping round of fighter force upgrades all across the region.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/IN-FOCUS-LATAM-DEFENCE-FIGHTERS-South-American-air-forces-count-the-pennies-kick-the-tyres-396593/
