Brazilian "Swede". Gripen fighter elements will be produced in Sao Paulo


According to the plans, the plant in the state of Sao Paulo area 5000 square. m will begin work in 2020 year with 55 employees (in four years their number should increase to 200 people). SAM will produce six structural components for Gripen fighters, including elements of the wing and fuselage. Parts manufactured by SAM will be used in the production of Gripen fighters for the Brazilian Air Force, as well as in the global supply chain of Swedish combat aircraft.

The Brazilian Defense Ministry chose the Gripen to replace the Northrop F-5EM and Dassault Mirage 2000C aircraft in service. The Brazilian Air Force ordered the Gripen E / F fighter jets (single and double modifications), the contract size was about $ 36 billion, the first aircraft to be delivered in the 5,4 year. Since Brazil wrote off the Dassault Mirage 2019C fighter jets as early as 2013, the military commanders decided to rent Gripen C / D fighters from the Swedish Air Force prior to the delivery of the purchased aircraft.

According to official information, Gripen 13 fighters will be produced and assembled in Sweden, another 8 units will be shipped to Brazil in parts, and Embraer (a division of the Brazilian aircraft manufacturer Embraer) will carry out their final assembly. For the production and assembly of more 15 units (8 single and 7 double) will also be responsible concern Embraer. At the same time, the Swedish-made aircraft will begin to be delivered to Brazil in 2019, the rest - a year later. Fully complete delivery of all 36 fighters is planned for the 2024 year - most likely, these dates will not be met.

      And what's the point? Dilma will go to jail soon. All the suitcases brought to her will go to lawyers. For other projects also (Ka-62). The new leadership saw all sorts of MiGs in the coffin, they have their own lobbyists.

          The Brazilians did the right thing in choosing Gripen. Why do they need other planes, albeit more advanced, but also more expensive? They do not fight them.

            5,5 lard and this is not the end. After all, you still need to buy ammunition and spare parts. parts. I would not say it is cheap.

              Again - the shtatovsky engine, the British radar. Tomorrow what will happen - and they will say goodbye to them.

                What, nafig, Brazilians the difference? Who will tell them what? Did they recognize the independence of Abkhazia? Are they under humanitarian sanctions? Yes, even the Papuan engine, they are fucked up.

                What will happen to them? They are not able to foresee the consequences of their actions.

                  Very many thought that they were very prudent. And then raked "on the first number."

                      You are welcome. Argentos in 1982, Iraq in 1993 - this is so offhand. Especially memory without straining.

                        What is the matter with the Argentos?
                        Iraq in 1993 was an ally of the United States and a hack? This is something new.

    The Swedes make a good airplane, a serious and easy alternative to our MIG, easy to maneuver for our MIG, as we have a reliable economical and most importantly high-torque engine, the prospects for the supply of our MIGs will increase, our MIG will be very maneuverable, but for 40 years now we can’t bring the engines to mind, and this is the damned 90s and the promotion of SU planes and again there is not enough funding when the money was.

    Tomato,
    The Argentos were supposed to get 12 superethandars and 60 exoset rockets and a simulator for training pilots from the “paddling”. The British Admiral Woodward, hoped that the Argentines themselves would not be able to master complex aggregates. Received 5 aircraft and 5 or 6 missiles. Further, the Americans did not put app. parts for the two naval "Neptunes" that were used for reconnaissance. They had to be put on a joke. But they put the latest modification of the sidewinder to the Britons out of turn, since the Britons were not the first to stand in that line, which significantly increased the chances of the Harriers in battles with Argentos fighters.

    Tomato,
    Iraq bought weapons in France, and then he scooped up for this.
