Hakan Buskhe, CEO and President of Saab, says his company is very keen to supply Gripen fighters to the Indian Air Force and is ready to transfer the entire product planning capability to India.
“I think we have an extremely good offer. We are building our latest aircraft which will be delivered to the Swedish and the Brazilian air forces as well. We started in 2013. It’s the latest technology. The product is totally digital and we have all the new sensors. So, we will be able to offer the best technology to India," Buskhe said.
Saab's offer includes setting up an aircraft industry and true transfer of technology. According to a Hindu news report, Saab also plans to set up a training academy to train pilots in operating the Gripen.
“More than the production, we have shown our keenness to build up the full capacity in India. Everything from research and development to production planning to developing the complete supply chain, can be done here in India. We are good at technology transfer. We are doing the same in other parts of the world as well," he adds.
