FX-2, no decision before 2012

July 9th 2011, Brazilian defense Minister Nelson Jobim has confirmed during an economical forum in Aix en Provence, France, that the FX-2 decision is delayed until early 2012.

"We will go to examine it into the beginning of next year. At the moment, we are only focused on the domestic agenda," Jobim said

Besides the fact that Brazil is currently affected by short term economical issues delaying military expense, there are also rumors about a possible acquisition of second hand aircrafts to replace the FX-2 fighter jets. Inded UAE Mirage 2000-9, which are almost new, could be a possible solution for Brazil.
