The Slow March to Replace CF-18s Continue

By Dr. Ann Griffiths, 28 November 2021

And then there were two! The Department of National Defence and Public Services and Procurement Canada, which are managing the competition to find a replacement for the CF-18s, announced that Boeing was out of the competition. Last week Boeing was informed that its bid to replace the CF-18s with Super Hornet fighter jets did not meet the federal government's requirements. Lockheed Martin’s F-35 and Swedish firm Saab’s Gripen fighter jet apparently have met the government's requirements. We continue to wait for a final decision. Anyone want to take odds on which option will be selected?? See https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/boeing-fighter-jets-1.6262851
