Sweden can't develop a fifth generation fighter airplane. It's just too expensive.



It will be interesting to see if France tries next time. The UK, Germany and Italy certainly can't.

The UK is already in early stages of design for a potential replacement to Eurofighter.

We will be working with Sweden on it as well.
