Finland’s Decision on the HX Fighter Program (December 10, 2021)

The U.S. Embassy in Finland welcomes the Government of Finland’s decision on the HX Fighter Program.  The United States is proud to have provided Finland with world-class aircraft over the past three decades, supporting Finland’s national security and providing Finland with economic and technological benefits.  We look forward to building on that proven success and deepening our partnership following today’s announcement.  We appreciate the opportunity we were given to participate in this competition and stand ready for our governments to work together in the years to come.  Congratulations to Lockheed Martin on their selection to furnish Finland with state-of-the-art aircraft.
