I agree Mr S.

I think your product will sell more and more over the coming decade.
A lot of countries cannot afford F-35 (or Typhoon) and there are very few alternatives in the west - Rafale or Gripen.

I somehow think that Rafale will not sell that well after this current blip of orders.

It is a shame many countries are not forward looking enough to see what they will end up buying, band together and drive the price of Gripen down.

I find Boeing looking at offering a lite version of Gripen for the TX contract very interesting. If it did come to fruition could anyone imagine ANG F-16s being replaced by a US built Gripens rather than F-35?
