ABSTRACT
The article reports on the decision of the government of Thailand to buy 12 Saab Gripen C/D fighters along with two of Saab's Erieye airborne early warning aircraft. The Gripens will substitute the Royal Thai Air Force's aging F-5 B/E aircraft. The government selected the Gripen after a four-year evolution that included Lockheed Martin's F-16 Block 50/52 and Suko's Su-30MKI. The Gripen C/D fighter features new electronic attack and advanced emitter location capabilities.
