Gripen Denies It Failed Mmrca Evaluation-AW&ST

Sun Jan 18, 2009 11:58 am

Sweden's Gripen is in the news again, this time for the Indian Air Force MMRCA contest. The article cites reports of a "report" that the Gripen "didn't make the grade" with the IAF's Technical Evaluation Committee. Naturally, the company is denying the report.

Quote:
Eddy de la Motte, director of Gripen International in India, told Aerospace DAILY, “Whether any of the competitors has failed to meet the cut for field evaluation or not is a question that should be put to the Indian Air Force. We firmly believe the report does not have any basis and the news is incorrect.

Obviously, it makes a real difference if this is a leaked report, or just a disparaging rumor. Bets?

The company can deny the "report" until an OFFICIAL report comes out.
