Saab is bidding for the Canadian Future Fighter Capability Project (FFCP) which will see the replacement of the RCAF’s existing CF-18 Hornet fighter fleet.

If successful, the bid will see 88 of Saab’s Gripen E aircraft being delivered which offers full NATO interoperability.   

The company announced in a statement on 2 March that it would work alongside Canadian defence industry leaders including CAE, GE Aviation, IMP Aerospace & Defence and Peraton Canada to deliver ‘high quality jobs and technology, adding greater economic value and knowledge across the Canadian industry coast to coast.’

The coalition of defence companies involved in the proposal have been referred to as the ‘Gripen for Canada Team.’
