Brazil may ask the supplier of 36 air force fighter jets to buy 12 cargo jets from Empresa Brasileira de Aeronautica as a pre-condition for the fighter deal.

Brazilian Defence Minister Nelson Jobim told Valor Economico that the purchase of the Embraer KC-390 jets would be a pre-condition for buying the 36 aircraft for nearly $6bn.

A proposal for the Embraer jet acquisition will soon be presented to Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva.

Dassault Aviation, Saab and Boeing are competing for the Brazilian aircraft contract.
