Switzerland: F-35s did not score well for offset
Switzerland’s new offset policy will apply to its procurement of 36 Lockheed Martin F-35As. That was the prediction of Albert Gaide, leader of the Swiss Aeronautical Industries Group of Swissmem, an association of mechanical and electrical engineering industries for German-speaking cantons. “Offsets are there to help the Swiss industry and not Switzerland’s armed forces. The industry needs offsets badly!” he told CTO.
