The first JAS-39E Gripen fighter for the Brazilian Air Force tested in Sweden

The first JAS-39E Gripen fighter assembled in the Swedish Linkoping for the Brazilian Air Force made its first flight. According to the Swedish group Saab AB, this is the first aircraft to receive a new cabin layout.


The first JAS-39E Gripen fighter for the Brazilian Air Force tested in Sweden


The Brazilian Ministry of Defense in December 2013 of the year summed up the results of the tender for the supply of the country's air force to fighter aircraft to replace the obsolete Dassault Mirage IIIE / D, withdrawn from service in the 2005 year. The winner of the competition, which was attended by the Swedish JAS-39E / F Gripen NG, Eurofighter Typhoon, French Dassault Rafale, Russian Su-35, American Boeing F / A-18E / F Super Hornet and Lockheed Martin F-16BR Fighting Falcon, was announced a fighter from Sweden.

In total, according to the contract, Saab will supply the Brazilian Air Force with 36 Gripen fighters: 28 Gripen E single-seat planes and eight Gripen F two-seat aircraft. The contract states that Brazilian fighters must be specifically tailored to the customer's air force requirements. In the version for Brazil, Gripen E fighters received a dashboard with a central widescreen information display, two auxiliary small information displays and an updated display system on the windshield. Improved flight control system software has also been installed.

It is reported that thirteen fighters will be manufactured at the headquarters in Linkoping, Sweden, eight car kits will be manufactured in Sweden, but assembled in Brazil, and the latest 15 fighters will be built in Brazil from scratch. Aircraft delivery will begin no earlier than 2021 of the year and should end by 2024.

    At the same time, the contract states that Brazilian fighters must be specially modified to meet the requirements of the customer’s air force

    So that rumba can dance at the carnival?
    And so in general it looks very much like a “balalaika”

        Nice. And the view from the cabin forward and on the sides is very good.

      But Egypt is buying a large batch of Russian MiG-35 fighters. According to information available to Avia.pro, Egypt and Russia have signed a contract for the supply of 50 MiG-35 fighters (maybe I mean the upgraded MiG-29M2, preparing for India?). The cost of the contract is $ 2 billion, while combat aircraft will be transferred to the Egyptian side until the end of next year. According to information provided by the American publication The National Interest, the Russian “deadly” MiG-35 fighters will seriously strengthen the Egyptian air force, while the appearance of such combat aircraft in the arsenal of this country will significantly increase its influence in the region.

      Even the United States could not sell its F-18s and F-16s.

      Of these options, Gripen is by far the best choice.

        I agree. A light single-engine aircraft is the most promising niche for export. How has it turned out that we have nothing to offer in this niche, except with a stretch of the lightest of our lightest twin-engine Mig-35 fighters conventionally belonging to this category? Despite the fact that the JF-17 Thunder in the class of light single-engine aircraft flies on our engine, here are the “strategists.” They offer everyone an unnecessary Su-35 in functionality, which many refuse.

        Is not a fact. Watching why they need fighters. If as drummers, then the Americans are clearly better. On the F-16, it is easy to attach the entire set of gadgets for precise hits on the ground.
        And F-18 can guard the coast and attack ships.
        He is imprisoned for this.
        But I'm happy for the Swedes. good
        They created a good plane, but without sales, it will wither and become obsolete. And with export, it will develop. It is a pity that Sweden is not friends with Israel (we offend Palestinians smile ), otherwise we would upgrade Gripen to them with the most modern markups.

            Everyone learned to cut, and the corruption component is growing. For comparison, the fifth-generation American fighter F-22 Raptor costs $ 150 million. F-35, also of the fifth generation, - $ 100 million. Russian fighter generation 4 ++ Su-35 - 75 million euros. Rafal - 218 million euros.

              For foreign customers, the price is higher than for national armies. The Pentagon buys F-35 for $ 85 million, and sells it to foreigners for $ 100-110 million. Rafal of the French army costs $ 90 million, and they bend it for foreigners, including expensive training and service packages.
              On export, R&D expenses are being beaten off. This is normal. And so does Russia.

            But the most surprising thing is that Soviet workers saw on the shelves and tried only the most average quality drink. Few people knew that samples were exported from the Union to twenty countries of the world no worse, but in some ways even better than Cuban and Jamaican brands.

      Everything is very complicated there. The fact is that Brazil did not find a sufficient amount to pay even part of the planed for delivery of aircraft and one of the conditions of the tender was deferred payment, which will be made in parts. Apparently it came to Sweden and they will receive the first part of the amount only after the last plane arrives at the Brazilian Air Force. Those. SAAB works, as it were, on credit. hi

    su-35 is a little expensive for them
    And influenza is almost the only female who meets the needs and is suitable for the price.
    Brazil has long distances and f-16 or f-18 or the French, hung with external fuel tanks, this is not what they are looking for. And there are not so many other planes with a considerable range without external tanks, with modern filling. I am sure that for all of Latin America, except for small states, influenza is now the best choice.

      I'm afraid you are wrong about the price, Sergey: "the Brazilian Ministry of Defense announced in December 2013 that Saab JAS-39E / F Gripen NG was the winner of the tender for the supply of the Brazilian Air Force a new generation fighter under the F-X2 program. The contract worth 39,3 billion SEK ($ 5,4 billion) for the development and production of 36 aircraft (28 single-seat JAS-39E and eight double-seat JAS-39F) was signed by the Brazilian Air Force command in October 2014. " (Source - BMPD).
      Those. for each Grippen, Brazilians spread, if I am not mistaken, 150 million dollars. Prices for the purchase of Su-35, F-35 and the French are much lower (at least according to official information).

        Yes, not a deal, but an ode to cut. 36 aircraft in fact 4 generations for 5,4 billion dollars.
        By the way, about 36 new 4-generation fighter jets each year come into service with the Russian Aerospace Forces, but obviously for a lower price.

    SU-35 about 75-80 million.

    most likely the issue is the confusion with the inclusion of service.
    French Indians rolled out the price tag of 230 million for 1 car, a batch of 36 cars (very similar conditions)
    our su-35 with service also costs much more than 85 million.
    In addition, Brazilians will have to invest in adapting the infrastructure for our drying facilities.
