    Predict the winners Part 2!!

    In the last contest, Swerve won the contest and received a prize (actually some one else beat him but Swerve was the runner up). If you're lucky maybe he'll show what it was

    Part 2.. Predict the winners for these contests:

    Brazil FX2: (Super Hornet, Rafale, Gripen, Su-35?)
    Indian Helo: (Ch-47, Mi-26)
    Indian Transport: C-27, C-295, Il-112
    Indian SARS: Shin meiwa US-2, Beriev Be 200, Bomberman 415
    Malaysian MMRCA: (Typhoon, Rafale, Gripen, Super Hornet, maybe some Russian type)
    Swiss AF: (is it really Gripen or will Rafale come out of nowhere?)
    Korean FX: Eurofighter, F-15, F-35, others?
    The first Su-35 export customer will be?

    winner will be the one who gets most of them right.

    Brazil FX2: Rafale has won, Obama and Dilma discussed everything except fighter purchase.

    Indian Helo: No idea

    Indian Transport: No idea

    Malaysian MMRCA: Gripen ,The Eurocanards too expensive !

    Swiss AF : Its the Gripen, a cameback for Rafale is highly unlikely

    Korean FX: F-15 or F-35

    The first Su-35 export customer will be? : Difficult to predict ..

    Brazil FX2: Rafale

    Indian Transport: C-27
    Indian SARS: Beriev Be 200,
    Malaysian MMRCA: Typhoon,
    Swiss AF: Gripen
    Korean FX: F-15
    The first Su-35 export customer will be : Vietnam

    The last one quite interesting though. Rosoboronexport marketed SU-35 quite heavily to Vietnam, Indonesia and Venezuela. My bet is still Vietnam, since Chavez days in Venezuelan powered is numbered :diablo:, while Indonesian politics regrading Military procurement is 'murky' they will take ages to make decisions

    Malaysia - Typhoon (Gripen makes more sense, but it will go to EF)
    Brazil - Rafale
    Swiss - Gripen (duh!)
    Korea - F-35A
    India transport - Il-214
    SU-35 - No real potential, not even Hugo

    Why? It was shortlisted along with Gripen NG and Rafale (Typhoon, Su-35 and F-16 were eliminated in the first phase of the FX2 selection process).

    Lula (the former Brazilian president) could have confirmed the announcement of the Rafale as the winner of FX2 (as he made on Sep. 7th 2009), but he didn't. No one knows the truth behind that bizarre episode. Since then, the Brazilian government changed and also the world economy.

    The fact is that all three competitors Boeing, Dassault and Saab are still working hard and spending a lot of money (marketing campaign) to convince the Brazilian government and influence local media that their proposals are the best.
