    Thailand is buying a first batch of six Gripens, with more to come later. The first six include two single-seaters and four two-seaters.
    Initial training will take place in Sweden, with the aircraft to transition to Thailand in 2011.
    Eventually, Thailand is expected to buy at least six more of the aircraft.
