Saab has offered joint development of Sea Gripen to India, reports The Economic Times.
Talking about the Sea Gripen and the ongoing project of the DRDO to develop the naval version of the LCA Tejas, Ulf Nilsson, head of Saab's aeronautics division said, "We have a great opportunity for technology transfer."
As per the report, Saab has already conducted a feasibility study and knows about the modifications that are needed to create a naval version of Gripen.
Featuring all the capabilities of the next generation Gripen, Sea Gripen will be the world’s most technologically advanced carrier-based fighter. It will have high agility, extended reach, carefree maneuvering, supercruise and full net-centric capabilities. An advanced data link and extensive electronic warfare self-protection suite can be readily adapted to meet specific user requirements.
Saab is also in talks with the Brazilian Navy and the Royal Thai Navy for a possible development of the Sea Gripen.
