    Bulgaria has announced a tender for the purchase of fighter jets

    According to the Bulgarian Aviation "AERO" magazine, Bulgarian Ministry of Defence has sent on 9 December 2016 request for proposals (RfP - Request for Proposals) to potential suppliers of new fighter jets for the Bulgarian Air Force, which were included in the so-called "short list" (shortlist). This is actually the beginning of a real stage of the new fighter procurement process. This information was confirmed by the Bulgarian Ministry of Defence AERO press service.

    RfP document was signed by the two ministers of the Bulgarian government to resign - Defence Minister Nikolay Nenchevym and Economy and Energy Bozidar Lukarski. After the document was sent to the Embassy of Italy, Portugal, USA and Sweden in Sofia. A source from the Bulgarian Ministry of Defense explained that the document contains confidential information and will not be published to the general public.

    Portugal and the United States, is expected to offer to supply multi-purpose F-16 fighters, upgraded standard MLU Block 15. Fighters F-16A/B will be delivered from the United States, where they are now in the long-term storage, and then they will be renovated and modernized in Portuguese repair plant OGMA. Package logistics services will be provided to the United States in the same way as was done in Romania to supply the former Portuguese F-16.

    Italy will provide a quotation for a fighter Eurofighter Typhoon Tranche 1, present in the country's air force. The machines have an age of about eight to ten years.

    The only option for the delivery of new aircraft - a Swedish fighter Saab JAS-39C/D Gripen.

    Bulgaria budget allocated 1.5 billion leva (767 million euros) to buy a minimum of eight multi-role fighters. In principle, the Bulgarian Defense Ministry wants to buy a total of 16 fighters, so this program will be divided into two stages. The first phase will be implemented in the years 2018-2021, and that it referred to were allocated 1.5 billion leva. The second stage will take place in 2022 - 2023 years, for the purchase of eight aircraft.

    Offers for the Bulgarian tender for the purchase of fighters

    As reported by Bulgarian media, the Ministry of Defense of Bulgaria on April 24, 2017 reported that it had completed the process of receiving proposals for the supply of the Bulgarian Air Force fighter aircraft, although it is not yet clear when the tender itself takes place.

    Recall that the request for proposals (RfP - Request for Proposals) to a potential supplier was sent out by the Bulgarian Ministry of Defense on December 9, 2016.

    The media reported that four proposals were received - from Sweden, the United States, Portugal and Italy. And only Sweden offers delivery of fighters Saab JAS-39C/D Gripen of new production. Three other proposals concern the supply of used fighters from the availability, with repair and modernization - the USA and Portugal offer Lockheed Martin F-16A/B aircraft with modernization by MLU (according to the "Romanian" scheme), and Italian Eurofighter Tranche 1 series with modifications.
