|Title*:||RMAF Might Consider Leasing Gripens|
|Description:||The Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) might lease Gripen aircraft for its Multi-Role Combat Aircraft (MRCA) programme, says a news report in The Sun.|
In an interview with The Sun, RMAF chief Tan Sri Rodzali Daud said that Gripen is a cost effective option because buying new fighters would need huge financial expenditure.
Rodzali Daud said that Gripen's evaluation process for the MRCA programme was still on and its strengths and weaknesses were being documented. Talking about the number of Gripens to be leased if Saab's offer is accepted, he said "preferably it will be 18 planes as specified in the MRCA".
