Cabinet gives green light to buy Swedish jet fighters
BANGKOK, Jan 8 (TNA) - The cabinet has approved the procurement by the Royal Thai Air Force of six Swedish-made Gripen jet fighters with a Bt19 billion budget.
Government spokesman Chaiya Yimwilai said the air force earlier planned to buy six US-made F-5E fighters but finally chose the Swedish jets for deployment as multi-role combat aircraft.

The Bt19 billion package, provided under a government to government deal for the six Gripen fighters, included accessories, spare parts and flight training programmes. (TNA)-E008
