Kampfly til besvær

Det er ikke bare i Norge hvor kjøp av nye jagerfly skaper debatt. I Sveits er kjøpet av 22 kampfly svært omdiskutert. Regjeringen kom tidligere i år frem til at det var “nødvendig, men ikke presserende” å skifte ut dagens fly av typen F5-Tiger, men parlamentet i Sveits ønsker å bestemme seg for flytype og bestille raskest mulig.

Som vanlig når slike beslutninger skal tas, er økonomi en sentral del av debatten. Hvilke andre poster på budsjettet må det kuttes i for å få råd til nye fly – helse? Offentlig transport? Også innad i forsvarsbudsjettet må visse poster kuttes, noe som skaper debatt mellom våpengrenene. Hvor mye vil nye fly koste? Er de dyreste best, eller kan man gå for de billigste? Nylig overleverte forsvarsministeren et skriv til parlamentet hvor kostnadene for nye fly ble satt til 3,5 milliarder sveitsiske franc (med dagens kurs 22 milliarder norske kroner). Tidligere har disse blitt anslått til 5 milliarder franc.

I Sveits står kampen mellom svenske Jas Gripen (Saab), franske Rafale (Dassault) og Eurofighter (EADS). Rafale skal visstnok være favoritten blant pilotene, mens Gripen står frem som det rimeligste alternativet. I den svenske leiren skal det ikke ha blitt tatt godt imot at en pensjonert norsk offiser til en sveitsisk avis i detalj forklarte hvorfor Gripen ikke ble regnet som godt nok for Norge.

Det sveitsiske parlamentet vil ha jagerflykjøp inn i det ordinære statsbudsjettet fra 2013 eller 2014 og på den måten unngå å holde folkeavstemning på spørsmålet. Men hvis et “folkeinitiativ” kan samle inn 100 000 underskrifter vil det bli folkeavstemning – noe som virker sannsynlig å skje.
