Slovakia Looks to Replace Mig-29s with Gripens

Slovakia is set to go ahead with leasing external link Saab’s Gripen jet fighter, although final contracts will not be signed until after elections due in March. The Gripens will replace the Mig-29 fighters currently on loan to the Slovak Air Force after the current lease ends this year. A more cost effective way of obtaining a fleet, leasing six to eight Gripens between now and 2029 is estimated external link to cost about $340 million.
