Just stubbled across this video on YouTube re ‘Swiss Made Aircrafts‘
Note of interest, at time 5:56, the film depicts competitive designs, I’m assuming (sorry I don’t sprechen Deutsch!) the Swiss were evaluating as potentials for in its service.

Would be very interesting to have been able to understand the audio!!

Yes, your assumption is correct. It was said the Swiss Airforce had to choose between 9 potential Jets.
All in all, in the video the jet history in the 60-is is told. Nothing so special.
The moving pictures in the video, on the other hand, are very nice!
Was not aware the N-20 was so agile.
 
Hello Pioneer!
Thanks for link to impressive video!
Nice to see all those 1950-60th aircraft in their days.

Curiously, Pilauts company made some good aircraft from that time, and still working.
So, Swiss remains among the "big players" in worldwide aviation industry.

Hope you can translate this newspaper article. It describes the Swiss evaluation of military aircraft between 1967 and 1972. In short: the US A-7 Corsair won the technical and operational evaluation and the French Milan (Mirage 5 derivative) won the political battle. The result: no new aircraft at all. But Switzerland ordered another 30 second-hand Hawker Hunters. Later Switzerland bought the F-5 Tiger II.
