It is considered the biggest military business over past years - a deal, which will provide Slovakia with new fighter aircrafts of top quality after more than twenty years.
The value of the deal may climb up to tens of millions of euro and even the last question mark hanging over the contract: with who will the Slovak army seal the deal, has been already resolved. The only competitor left in the game for fighter jet rental is the Swedish manufacture Saab. Defense Minister Martin Glváč confirmed for the Hospodárske Noviny business daily that in the future, Slovak army pilots will fly the Swedish Gripen jets.
