Saab Secures Order for Four Additional Gripen C for Hungary

Saab recently signed a contract with the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) and received an order for four additional Gripen C fighter aircraft for Hungary.
This order follows an amendment to the contract between FMV and the Hungarian Government signed in December 2001 regarding 14 Gripen C/D fighters for the Hungarian Air Force.

The contract amendment for the four additional aircraft was signed by the Hungarian Ministry of Defence and FMV on February 23, 2024. With this new contract amendment, Hungary will operate a total of 18 Gripen C/D aircraft.
“With the Gripen fighter, Hungary has one of Europe’s most capable air forces. We look forward to continuing our close collaboration with the Hungarian Government and defence industry,” said Micael Johansson, President and CEO of Saab.
Saab currently has a contract with FMV regarding support for Hungary’s Gripen aircraft, and the company is ready to provide additional upgrades and support for the Hungarian fighters beyond 2035. 
Saab and the Hungarian Ministry of Defence have also signed an MoU for the development of high-tech industrial areas and fighter aircraft capabilities. The cooperation includes support for establishing a Centre of Excellence for VR technologies in Hungary.
