Finmeccanica delays completion of Kuwait Eurofighter contract-source

ROME, Nov 26 (Reuters) - Italian defence group Finmeccanica has delayed the completion of a contract to sell 28 Eurofighter jets to Kuwait to the middle of December, a source close to the matter said on Thursday.

Finmeccanica had expected to complete the deal, worth 7-8 billion euros, in November.

The source said the delay was due to problems linked to pilot training and the dispatching of specialized personnel.

There was no immediate comment from Finmeccanica. (Reporting by Antonella Cinelli, writing by Stephen Jewkes, editing by Luca Trogni)
