An executive from Saab said Croatia has been taking a close look at the company’s Gripen fighter and he hopes that the country can start a competition sooner rather than latter.

“It has gone from something we thought was going to take a little bit longer, and maybe the Croatians thought that as well, but now it feels like it is, if not urgent, then at least it is happening quicker than anticipated,” Magnus Lewis-Olsson, Saab’s head of Europe, told Reuters.

“It does feel like it is becoming more relevant in the next one or two years.”
