According to EESP (European Economic Stability Protocol) signed in the middle of 2012 in Brussels by the 27 partners of the EU, the countries with a high rate of debt (Greece, Italy, Spain, Portugal etc.) had to execute all measures necessary in order to reduce their debts. In article 12 "About the defense of the homeland", the countries of the EU constituted that all redundant units had to be dissolved and the equipment to be sold.

Furthermore, the armies of the affected countries had to change their "non-european" equipment for european equipment. Greece had therefore to sell their US fighterplanes and replace them by european ones. In exchange, the equipment will be cheaper than for standard customers from outside the EU.

 

The F-16s got sold to Israel and Turkey. The mayor manufacturers of fighters in Europe were Dassault, Saab and the Eurofighter Corporation. The hellenic airforce decided to order the Typhoon for two of their Squadrons and the Gripen for another three squadrons. For the remaining sqaudrons, the ministry of defense had not declared a decision if either buy more Mirage 2000 or get some Rafales.

 

The first Gripens arrived at the end of 2012 and did directly enter service in the 330th, 341st and 347th Moira. All planes display the new SGD-Camo (Spartan Ghost Digital)
