The US Navy and Boeing receive permission to offer Finland the E/A-18G for the HX fighter program...

via Naval News.
Boeing and the U.S. Navy have received U.S. Department of Defense approval to offer the EA-18G Growler to Finland. Previously only Australia had been authorized to purchase the airborne electronic attack (AEA) aircraft.

An F/A-18 variant, the Growler is the world’s most advanced AEA platform and the only one in production today. It’s capable of disrupting, deceiving or denying a broad range of military electronic systems including radar and communication systems.
Story here.

This is interesting.  I never even considered the E/A-18G for the Finnish Air Force.  I wonder if they have a different view of future warfare than the rest of the Europeans?
