Croatia MoD evaluating three bids for new multi-role fighter

The Ministry of Defence (MoD) of the Republic of Croatia has started evaluating three bids for the acquisition of a new multi-role fighter jet for its airforce.

The Ministry of Defence (MoD) of the Republic of Croatia has started evaluating three bids for the acquisition of a new multi-role fighter jet for its airforce.

In 2017, the ministry planned to float a request for proposal (RFP) for purchasing fighter aircraft.

The bidders had to submit the best and final offer (BAFO) before 11 November, following which the ministry will review the offers.

Lockheed Martin has offered its F-16 Block 70 aircraft and France’s Dassault has proposed the Rafale fighter jets.

Sweden’s Saab has offered the JAS-39 C / D Gripen aircraft.

In a statement, the ministry said: “The decision-making process at the state level will begin in early 2021, and includes the opinion of the Defense Committee of the Croatian Parliament and the Defense Council and the Decision of the Government of the Republic of Croatia on the most favourable offer for a multi-role fighter aircraft.”
