Croatia’s Ministry of Defence (MoD) has evaluated proposals received for the country’s multi-role combat aircraft procurement programme.

A feasibility study was also conducted to help make a decision on the acquisition of a modern fighter aircraft.

The procurement decision, which was delayed for 15 years, will help the country retain its ability to control and defend the national airspace.

A total of four proposals were received from the Hellenic Republic, the State of Israel, the Kingdom of Sweden, and the US in October.

The proposals involve high-tech solutions, transfer of knowledge, and experience supporting the development of short-supply industrial solutions related to the procurement of aircraft.

“Croatia seeks to procure multi-role combat aircraft in order to retain the capability of control and protection of the national airspace.”

The validation and evaluation phase of the four received proposals was conducted by the Expert Team assigned with the preparation of the acquisition of the multi-role combat aircraft.
