Fliegerfaust note: SAAB and Airbus had offered to have their Gripen and Eurofighter fighter aircraft assembled in Canada with final assembly line at Mirabel airport, Quebec, Canada. Where is Quebec government on this subject? Where is the Canadian government and opposition on this? Is the lobbying so strong affecting all parties...?
- From leaked CF-18 fighter replacement program documents...
This is questioned by 800 pages of leaked documents obtained by the Western Standard showing that defence bureaucrats are defying their political orders by inflating the replacement program requirements in favour of the Lockheed-Martin F-35, the most expensive option by far.
At stake are Canada's air defence capabilities, and billions of dollars in federal taxpayer funds.
The technical requirements in the request for proposal (RFP) are littered with odd requirements that raise serious questions of bias. For example, a small number of points are available in the technical criteria section for jets equipped "with an arrestor hook or drag chute or both." The F-35 has – and desperately needs – both to operate safely at Canada's 6000 ft.

Arctic Forward Operating Location runways. The Saab Gripen, on the other hand, was designed for Swedish Arctic bases with 3000 ft. of runway and uses its canards as integrated air brakes. If the Gripen doesn't get full points on this requirement, then that should be a red flag of pro Lockheed-Martin F-35 evaluator bias.
The Saab Gripen is a high-speed delta-wing fighter with canards – hence the "Euro-Canard" nickname – and in many ways resembles the high-flying, high-speed Avro Arrow interceptor. This design is optimized for speed and high altitude, both critical for winning in air-to-air combat and beneficial for minimizing drag on external stores during cruise. The Euro-Canards have service ceilings over 50,000 ft and are known to regularly fly over 40,000 ft., whereas Lockheed Martin recommends a cruise altitude of 30,000 ft for optimal F-35 performance....
