SAAB is expected to select a US location by mid-year. Meanwhile they're marketing the aircraft to potential foreign customers. Boeing is talking about
potential sales of up to 2600 airframes between the US and foreign customers.
The T-1 and T-2 prototypes have completed about 80% of Phase One testing. They're meeting all required capabilities, and have met their goal
capabilities in most areas(several haven't pushed to their goal yet).

Yeah a program that actually runs to schedule for once. Nice.
I wonder if this experience will embolden SAAB to push for developing the next generation replacement for the Gripen now?
