TangoSixBlog reports that the Eurofighter Typhoon has been put on the “extended wish list Serbian Air Force and unofficially placed on the upper part of the list.”
Back in June of 2010, Flight Global reported that Serbian officials were interested in the Eurofighter as it looked at possible candidates for a domestic fighter requirement likely to total around 20 aircraft.
In the Tango Six reports, it looks as if this interest is and “wish list” is currently being staffed up through the Serbian Air Force Command for further analysis by other departments in one of Serbia’s largest public procurement’s in history.
This is an interesting development as it came out at the same time that:
1. The UK announced that it would support Serbia’s EU membership ambitions by ratifying the Stabilization and Association Agreement (SAA) between the EU and Serbia. and
2. The Serbian and UK General Staff’s met in Belgrade to work on bilateral cooperation between the Serbian Armed Forces and the Armed Forces of the United Kingdom.
