DND reportedly submitting proposal to procure Saab's JAS-39C/D MS20 Gripen over Lockheed Martin F-16C/D Block 70 Viper


Are we saying good bye already to the F-16 Block 70 Viper?

The Department of National Defense (DND) is reportedly submitting a proposal to procure the Saab JAS-39C/D MS20 Gripen fighter aircraft for Philippine Air Force (PAF)’s Multi-Role Fighter Acquisition Project,this is a news coming from MaxDefense Philippines.

MaxDefense said the DND is serious with the said project with National Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana personally pushing for the project to progress.

“Up until early this year, the PAF was pushing for the acquisition of the F-16 Block 70 Viper in which 12 brand new units were offered by the US to the PAF.” MaxDefense said. However, it added that “because of financial reasons, the PAF was left to choose between moving their MRF acquisition to the next Horizon 3 phase, or select a cheaper alternative. Cheaper alternatives include acquiring a 2nd squadron of KAI FA-50, or going with the Saab’s Gripen.”

The American made Vipers are the first choice of the Philippine Air Force (PAF) but it is the most expensive compared to the Grippen. Though experst are saying that the Grippen is the less capable multi-role fighter compared to the F-16’s.
