Description: The Saab JAS 39 Gripen is a supersonic, multi-role fighter combining high performance, high maneuverability, and fully integrated information and weapon systems. The Gripen aircraft employs an advanced delta wing and canard fore planes aerodynamic configuration which ensures maneuverability at all speeds, altitudes and weapon loads. In addition, the flight control system ensures that the aircraft is easier and safer to fly than previous generation fighters. Its radar provides look-down shoot-sown capability and the IR-OTIS sensor provides Infrared search and track capability. To date Sweden (204), South Africa (28), Hungary (14?) and Thailand have selected the Gripen multi-role fighter for their Air Forces.

The Gripen can be armed with AIM-9 Sidewinder or IRIS-T missiles for short range air-to-air engagements, for multiple medium range engagements the AMRAAM missile can be employed. RBS-15, Maverick and DWS 39 weapons are available for air-to-surface missions. In addition, the Brimstone, Taurus and Meteor missiles, as well as new avionics and equipment, could be integrated within years enhancing the Gripen mission options and roles. The Gripen also features reduced costs of ownership and operation, as well as high availability and reliability.

The JAS 39F Gripen, also known as Gripen F, is a twin-seat advanced version of the Gripen fighter aircraft deployed by the Swedish Air Force in the late 1990s. The Gripen E/F aircraft are powered by a General Electric F414G engine. They also feature new avionics and displays as well as an Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar. The next generation Gripen delivers enhanced flight handling, aerodynamics, performance and endurance. Switzerland selected the Gripen E/F aircraft as the replacement for its F-5E/F Tiger in November 2011.
