Airbus have confirmed they are now actively looking to divest themselves of their 46% shareholding in Dassault Aviation.
With increasing defence cooperation with the UK and the intent of BAE to merge with EADS now ancient history would it make sense for BAE and Dassault to consider an increasingly closer relationship?
The two are already working on the joint French/UK FCAS unmanned combat aircraft study, the fit there is an obviously good one.
Would there be value in such a closer relationship.
