Brazil Rejecting Swedish Jet Fighter?
News reports conclude that Sweden will loose its bid to sell its new jet fighter to Brazil – with France expected to get the order for 36 planes.
The French president's visit to Brazil is seen as a successful contribution to the French campaign.
Another factor is the French promise to provide the Brazilians with the jet fighter's complete technology.
Sweden is prevented from offering the same provision since the Swedish Gripen plane has American parts.
