Saab Gripen and Dassault Rafale Vs. F-35 JSF

Canada is considering other options to the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF). The Saab Gripen is one of their options. And this economic fact caught my attention: At well under $100 million apiece and the lowest operating cost of any fighter in the world at $4,700 an hour the Gripen is cost-effective and competent.
