CF188Marc Allen, president of Boeing's international business, has said Canada is evaluating data from five potential contractors that could help replace the country’s fleet of CF-18 aircraft, Reuters reported Monday.

Leah Schnurr writes Canada requested information such as aircraft features and economic factors from Boeing, Lockheed MartinSaab, Dassault Aviation and the Eurofighter Typhoon consortium comprised of BAE Systems, Leonardo-Finmeccanica and Airbus Group.

“[The focus on data] gave all of the suppliers a chance to set down in black and white what it is their platform does,” Allen told Reuters.

He indicated that the Canadian government’s move reflects its awareness of the capability gap in the country’s fighter jets, the report said.
