Also keep in mind that technology transfer sounds nice, but its not free. Brazil bought new Gripens with technology transfer for $120M USD each (2014), but that included armaments and services. F-35 is trending down in price and is already below $90M USD each. Not to mention the billions we'd waste building an orphan assembly line for the Gripens that'll just shut down right away as soon as the last jet rolls.
