Man those Chinese are all over the place, they are trying to buy and get everything that is available. But perhaps we will see a reverse engineered Gripen in the future.

The Swedes are selling and the U.S. can object all it wants, but it won't make a difference. China is a larger and more important trade partner for the future for Sweden than the states.

I am concerned that China will just buy ''a bit of everything'' so it can reverse engineer and catch up to the west in tech. It will not take them long with the amount of scientists they potentially have locked up in a 1BN+ population.

Sorry to burst any bubbles, but the fact that the Grippen is chalk full of American components, engine, etc., and that American companies have a significant (majority?) share in Saab will see that no Grippen ever makes its way to the PRC.
