No Swedish Jets for Switzerland?

Media reports claim that Sweden could miss out on selling it military jet Gripen to Switzerland after the government in Bern voiced fears over the cost. Swiss daily Tages-Anzeiger quotes Defence Minister Ueli Maurer as saying that replacing the aging fleet of war planes would be too expensive.

Initially, Switzerland had planned to buy up to 20 new fighter planes. Sweden’s military jet Gripen, made by Saab, was in contention for the deal together with France's Rafale jet, made by Dassault and the Eurofighter Typhoon, made by a four-nation European consortium.

Switzerland wanted to choose the supplier by early 2010. A spokesperson of the Swiss government told news agency AFP that he was "unable to confirm" the report.
