Gripen for Canada

Canada is choosing a new fighter. A decision that will see a new fighter defend Canada, deter her opponents and meet her international commitments. The decision on which a fighter Canada choses is a once in a lifetime opportunity. One of those choices is Gripen from Saab.

A smart fighter with the technology to ensure Canada’s pilots are flying an aircraft designed to defeat their opponents for decades to come and bring them home each time. A smart fighter that is built by Canadians and supported by Canadians for generations. A smart fighter at home in the snow and ice, there when you need it, where you need it. A smart fighter designed to ensure the dollars are spent keepings its pilot in the cockpit and not in the simulator. A smart fighter that is Gripen.
