    Sweden pulls out of Belgian fighter competition.

    Sweden pulls out of Belgian fighter battle
    By: Valerie Insinna, July 10, 2017 (Photo Credit: Saab)
    WASHINGTON — Sweden will not put forward Saab’s Gripen E for Belgium’s fighter contest, the country’s defense ministry announced Monday.

    In a notice explaining the decision, the Swedish Defense Materiel Administration, or FMV, said the government was not prepared to provide the operational support required by the Belgian government, which is seeking out 34 new fighters to replace its fleet of 54 F-16s.

    “This would require a Swedish foreign policy and political mandate that does not exist today. Therefore Sweden and the FMV choose not to submit an answer to the Belgian request,” the notice stated.

    The decision is a blow to Sweden’s major defense firm Saab. Earlier this year, company officials said it hoped to propose the next-generation version of its Gripen fighter jet, the Gripen E, which made its first flight last month.

    You're just lucky I'm not fluent in Danish and hadn't yet thought of a caption for my picture set of SNGM1's command change (though I've since thought of one):tongue:.

    Fortunately for @Hellfire my Danish is horrible so no caption in Danish, but I do recognize these words. Hæren is also Army in Norwegian, though Sergent in Norwegian is Sersjant, skole is the same in both Danish and Norwegian. Norwegian Bokmål and Standard Danish are very similar, with differences in pronunciation being the main point of divergence. Though I don't know enough Danish words to write using Danish Standard, I can still read it easily enough, Swedish too.

    Congrats. You've taken your first tentative steps towards becoming a Dane:tongue:. Of course I also wrote out the meaning in English, so I hope is wasn't too hard to figure out:D.

    RDAF during a foreign aircraft interception exercise. Given Russia's recently more belligerent behaviors, this is fast becoming the new normal again.
