Why don't you like the Grippen?
The real question is what’s there TO like? Our F-18s are just as capable. That’s not a good thing. The gripen lives in a fantasy world of promised capabilities, they are so good their supporters keep it a secret! It’s a disgustingly overrated, underperforming turd that Sweden doesn’t even want.
I'm telling you right now....
If Trudeau can negotiate a deal which results in i) jobs in Eastern Canada where seats are contested, and ii) Boeing ensuring the contract is somehow carbon-neutral, I think he would jump at the opportunity. I think the Liberal Party is desperate to try to change the page from the WE Charity scandal and Vaccine Procurement issues, and a story like that would most certainly help.
I don’t know how you can argue that a fighter jet is carbon neutral, dumping carbon into the upper atmosphere is as bad as it gets. How does Boeing set up shop in Eastern Canada and what part of the F-15 do they build?
