Sweden says Croatia eyeing Gripen fighter deal

STOCKHOLM, March 27 (Reuters) - Sweden’s Defence Material Administration (FMV) said on Thursday it had answered a request for information from Croatia regarding a potential deal for 12 Saab-made (SAABb.ST) Gripen fighter jets.

The agency said in a statement that the request for information was the first step in a potential deal and added that the exchange contained no binding price information.

The deal would consist of a leasing agreement and possible later purchase of the aircraft which had originally been ordered by the Swedish airforce.
