Initiative must not delay F-35 procurement

The initiative against the procurement of the F-35A as the new Swiss fighter jet, which was submitted very late, must not be allowed to further delay the urgent renewal of the Swiss Air Force. Aerosuisse demands an immediate signing of the contract if the deal is approved by parliament in the autumn session

The demand for this fifth-generation jet is enormous and has increased again with the outbreak of war in Ukraine. If Switzerland waited, it would massively endanger the security of our country.
