The key difference is the selection of Gripen E in Brazil, because Brazil added a lot of capabilities and commitment to the fighter, that wasn't there from the Swedish side alone, during MMRCA. Sweden initially considered to canibabilize Gripen C/Ds and make as much use of available systems in their ordered Gripen E. That changed with Brazil and now both sides are focused on a full fledged new version. Brazil with a lot of Israeli content, while Saab is pushing their EW capabilities to a new level. The recently presented Arexis escorts jamming pod, is one of the key new systems and could make Gripen E to a dedicated Growler alternative. Not to mention that thanks to Indian delays, they had time to develop their fighter, which was not the case during MMRCA, when only a TD was available.
