It's ridiculous that the Gripen is even allowed into the competition. It's an obscure, oddball 4th generation fighter (you don't replace a 4th gen fighter with another 4th gen fighter), it's made on the other side of the ocean and it's used in very tiny numbers worldwide meaning parts will be scarce.

It's also not even in the same league as the F-35 in terms of performance. No stealth, only 65% of the range of the F-35, nothing close to the sensor capabilities of the F-35. I can't believe the Gripen is even under consideration.
