Slovakia in talks with Sweden on Gripen jet fighters
In its effort to boost defence capabilities, Slovakia is set to begin official talks on the rental of Gripen jet fighters from Sweden.
Details of the costs and number of Gripens to be used in Slovakia are still to be elaborated during the talks.
The Slovak Armed Forces currently have Mig-29.
There is still the possibility to continue with current jet fighters for which the license ends in November 2016, or Slovakia might agree with some ally on the protection of air space. spectator
