Saudi Arabia set to receive 72 Eurofighter jets, crown prince says

Saudi Arabia expects delivery soon of 72 Eurofighter Typhoon jets worth around USD 19.3 billion from Britain's BAE Systems, the official Saudi Press Agency reported.


Crown Prince Sultan bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud was quoted Saturday as saying the state-of-the-art warplanes would be delivered to the kingdom "very soon." In December, British anti-fraud authorities dropped an investigation into improper dealings on an arms export contract with Saudi Arabia after Saudi officials threatened to cancel the lucrative jet purchase.
