Brazil to Buy Swedish Jet Fighter?

Brazilian newspaper speculation claims that the Swedish jet fighter JAS is the favorite among the Brazilian air force planning to buy new planes.

Earlier news reports claimed that the French Rafale plane was in first place. A third competitor is the American F-18.

Despite criticism here against Swedish arms exports in general, both the government and the industry here are desperate to sell the plane in order to cover the expensive development costs.
