|Title*:||Gripen NG Development Opens Doors For South Africa|
|Description:||In an interview with Engineering News, President of Saab South Africa Magnus Lewis-Olsson said that there are opportunities for South Africa, and other countries, to participate in the development of the New Generation Gripen.|
He said that South Africa has fantastic capabilities in the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research and in local companies.
Magnus Lewis-Olsson also said that though Sweden would buy the New Generation Gripens, it would use its current Gripen C and D models as well which would be upgraded and could have some of the technologies and systems from the New Generations versions. South Africa too can have a similar mid-life upgrade of its Gripens which could include active electronically scanned array radar and new electronic countermeasures.
