    That article was from 2012, and even if we were to buy Gripen C/D today it is questionable wether it would include Raven radar due to price issues. IF Raven radar would not increase the price too much over basic C/D I could see it happen, but I don't think that is very realistic. Matter of fact, buying any fighter aircraft right now is not realistic for Croatia, unless it is some second-hand MiG-21s, F-5s or restored P-47s armed with Sidewinders...

    Logical don't buy the best weapon because you are not going to use it.

    Good news - seems like government is considering Gripen again due to US push for other NATO members to increase defense budget to 2% of GDP.
