In Sweden, tested the first production JAS-39E Gripen NG for the country's air force

The first Swedish-built serial fighter Saab JAS-39E Gripen NG


The first production fighter JAS-39E Gripen NG, built for the Swedish Air Force, made its first flight. By the end of the year, the fighter will be handed over for state testing. This was reported by the bmpd blog, citing the press service of the Swedish group Saab AB.

The first flight of the first production JAS-39E Gripen NG for the Swedish Air Force took place on December 3 of this year. The fighter received a new gray three-tone “broken” camouflage scheme. After a series of flights, he will be handed over to the Swedish defense procurement agency Försvarets materielverk (FMV) for state testing.

This is the second serial fighter JAS-39E Gripen NG, assembled in Linkoping, the first was a fighter JAS-39E, assembled for the Brazilian Air Force. His first flight was 26 on August this year.

In total, the Swedish Saab AB group of companies will build 96 new JAS-39E Gripen NG fighters under two contracts at once. The Brazilian Air Force ordered 36 Gripen fighters: 28 single-seat Gripen E aircraft and eight two-seat Gripen F. Thirteen fighters will be manufactured at the headquarters in Sweden Linkoping, eight machine kits will be manufactured in Sweden, but assembled in Brazil, and the latest 15 fighters will be built in Brazil with zero. Aircraft delivery will begin no earlier than 2021 of the year and should end by 2024.

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.

For the Swedish Air Force, 60 JAS-39E Gripen NG single-seat fighters will be built with an option for another ten aircraft, not yet approved. Aircraft delivery should be completed by the 2027 year.

JAS 39 Gripen is a fourth-generation Swedish multipurpose fighter developed by SAAB in the 80s. The abbreviation JAS stands for Jakt - fighter, Attack - attack aircraft, Spaning - scout. The first model of the fighter (Gripen A) was adopted by the Swedish Air Force in 1997 year.

      The on-board radar ES-05 “Raven” is capable of detecting a target with an EPR of 3 m2 at a range of 200 km while simultaneously tracking 20 air targets. The station has liquid and air cooling systems.

      Far to Italians with Swedes from their radar ES-05 "Raven" to radar N035 "Irbis" Su = 35C. Detection range is 2 times less than that of Irbis. The AS-39E Gripen NG does not pull at all on the killer, rather on the game!

        Swedes can only be praised, with such a small population they are succeeding in such capacious industries as automobiles and aircraft manufacturing, they produce a different nomenclature of weapons and military equipment, showing a high production culture. It is clear that localization is far from 100%, but still the results are good.

        Ok, the Su-35 radar has a range for 3 m2 of 300-400 km. But compare the dimensions.
        In addition, the AFAR has greater noise immunity and is able to work on the ground and in the air at the same time.
        For a light fighter - excellent avionics.

    Of course, I am an amateur, but the TTX of these fluenes has always bothered me.
    For a 14-ton single-engine fighter with an engine approximately corresponding to RD-33 Miga-29 ... (5K kgf without afterburner) Payload mass of 5+ tons is declared.
    There we were trying to make a light fighter, so on the MiG-29 had to put two of these engines ...

        Is that from the superhornet then? Well, + 20% thrust, I agree. But this is unlikely to give an afterburning supersonic. From TTX Grippen bears "understatement", to be honest :) A machine in the weight category Mig-21 is declared to be a competitor not only to the F-16 and Mig-29, but even to the rafals :)

          let's start with the fact that increased power does not pass without a trace. For example, the resource of GDS for Alla is 4000 hours versus 2000 for a general electrician.

            The program received the designation F414-GE-400 EDE (enhanced durability engine - engine with high reliability), it is the main competitor to the European turbofan EJ200, which are equipped with Typhoon fighters. However, the continuation of the mass production of F-18 aircraft has not yet been determined (they previously spoke about the production of 36 additional aircraft in 2015, then this figure decreased to 24, but this proposal also hangs in the balance). After the defeat in the Indian and Brazilian tenders in the foreseeable future, a large foreign buyer of the Super Hornets is unlikely to appear.

            It is reported that a variant of the engine with increased thrust of 26400 pounds can be developed against the current 22000 (respectively 12000 and 100000 kg). But such a significant increase in traction will reduce engine life by 20% (now it is 6000 hours) and increase maintenance costs. While maintaining the existing thrust, it is possible to enable fuel efficiency by 3% and reduce the cost of engine fleet maintenance by $ 5 billion by increasing the reliability of the turbofan components.

            To increase engine thrust, it will be necessary to increase the amount of intake air through the air intake (up to 84,8 kg / s against 77,1). More powerful engines can arouse the interest of manufacturers of Swedish fighter Gripen and Gripen NG, as well as Indian Tejas.

            They have a demonstrator aircraft with a minimum fuel supply and without payload, supposedly accelerated to 1,2 max without boost. Yeah, yeah. Peremoga. Then the F-86 is quite a supersonic fighter, because it could also be supersonic under certain conditions.

            Moreover, the 6700 thrust indicated by you is not even on the GE website. And your links go to other engines.

            do you even have a concept of thrust-to-weight ratio?
            1. Thrust-to-weight ratio is the ratio of thrust and mass, and not just thrust 2. Thrust-to-weight ratio is inherent in an aircraft and is achieved by the operation of its engines in relation to its (aircraft) mass. Thrust-to-engine ratio is usually applied when it comes to a rocket engine. 3 The thrust recorded on the basis of bench tests is not the thrust received in the air.

                judging by the content of the comments is very superficial. At the level of comments on VO
                If the mass has changed insignificantly, and the engine thrust increased by 30 percent, how much increased the thrust-to-weight ratio?

                a connoisseur of “I have”, first you climb into Wikipedia (or wherever you draw your “knowledge” from) and make sure that the concept of “thrust-weight ratio” never applies to the dry weight of an engine.
                Probably these formulas for calculating the thrust-weight ratio on Wikipedia do not teach:
                Ro = resulting thrust at launch / take-off weight = Ndv * Ro1 / Go
                In addition, in order not to be confused by “knowledge”, find out why thrust is sometimes considered to be daH, sometimes per kilogram of thrust per kilogram of aircraft weight, sometimes in kilogram of thrust per kilogram of air, sometimes kilogram of fuel / kilogram of thrust.

      14 tons is the maximum take-off mass of this aircraft, and it weighs 7 tons. Five tons is more of a theory. If he takes such a load, it will not take off high, will fly not quickly and not far.

    Admittedly, the Swedes are exceptionally competent engineers.
    Not without reason, during World War II, all the warring parties fought off their aircraft with their 40-mm "bofors".
    Even our 37 mm anti-aircraft gun is a replica of a successful Swede.
    After the war, they “pleased” us with a good reckless tank, able to change the aiming angle using a transmission, revolutionary anti-tank weapons, Draken fighters with a triangular wing geometry, articulated by an armored all-terrain vehicle for the Arctic.
    The time has come for the Gripenov. Surely there will be breakthrough ideas in them.
    What is the motto of their Electrolux?

            At high altitude, air defense systems of a more serious status work. When confronted with a more serious opponent than the barmalei, such tactics will not work. In some cases, point bombing may be ineffective. For example, there is a large convoy of equipment several kilometers in length, it’s easier to pass along with NURSs even if it’s accurate but just a couple of bombs. And in order to be more precise, this must be done at a not very high altitude. In this case, the airborne defense complex should protect against missiles. Bullets and small-caliber guns need armor.

              I can not simulate any situation where precision weapons would lose to uncontrollable. that's all. Column 3 km long? Well, somehow the intelligence worked out strangely that it allocated only 2 bombs. but even they can do business. bombing the kitchen makes no sense :)
              Your armored attack aircraft would be just as vulnerable to air defense as the “plywood” guided missile carrier

    My classmate had the opportunity to fly around both Grippen and F-16: about -16 is not very flattering. And Grippen spoke well. Well, by the degree of frills and suspension - a very advanced car. And for countries with a small budget - a very versatile aircraft: change the suspension, it is ready for anything.
    Still, of course, the Swedes business model is not at all American: the Swedes offer 100% offset, which is very beneficial to the buyer’s economy

    Yes, Swedes are very good. The highest quality equipment in the world is probably made by the Swedes! Better than in Germany and without question. They are expensive but their equipment is worth it! Where the required high quality in harsh conditions, calmly take the Swedish.


    It is necessary to closely monitor the Swedish aircraft !!! Be sure that they are better than the French Rafals and European Typhoons. The problem with the Swedes is that they are small, engines do not, the electronics are 50% imported.


    If they could choose which engineer to integrate into Ruska, the Swedes would beat themselves better than the choice of all the others in the world, even the Japanese and the USA!

    The Swedes, of course, are marketers from God) And about the super-cruise song they competently sing)

    Thrust dvigla say 20% in version "e" increased compared to older versions of "c / d"? Have you looked at how much the mass of the plane has grown? Well now empty weight = 8 tons
    https://saab.com/globalassets/gripen.com/downloads/gripen-e-fact-sheet--en.pdf
    And before it was something like 6.6 tons. So the thrust-weight ratio of Gripen E only fell compared to older versions

    Well, the thrust-to-weight ratio is bad, worse than F / A 18, and than F35 - generally worse than any 4+ fighter

    Now suppose that the maximum speed in horizontal flight is more dependent on the total area washed
    the surface of the aircraft than the thrust-to-weight ratio. Well, then the glider is "unabashed" compared to c / d versions

    I think that about the super cruise the Swedes are cunningly cunning. Gripen at the fast and the furious goes to supersonic, and then this mode is maintained without the afterburner for some time, actually a similar trick and fighter of old generations did

    PS Well, in terms of aviation, the plane is apparently really good. AFAR on a rotating suspension, an excellent optical station, Mig 35 somehow does not look very good against this background

      Don’t write a lie, but give an example ... Judging by the examples that I brought to you like you, Grippen has no great achievements, and even more so in radar he is inferior to Russian aircraft и also in engines.

        Yes, please - on Mig 35 there is an old Zhuk-M slotted antenna, the same as on Mig 29 SMT, and when nobody knows there will be AFAR.
        On Gripen E stands AFAR raven + antenna turn with the help of a rotating suspension.

        I don’t see any reason to compare with Su35, planes from completely different weight categories.

    The author missed another interesting point in the Brazilian version: the revision was made by the Israeli concern Elbit through its Brazilian branch. The same option, modified by the "Brazilian" specialists, will go to the Swedish Air Force ... (The Swedish company Saab chose AEL System in Brazil for the production of cockpit displays and HUDs for the Gripen NG fighters to be acquired by the country's air force, flightglobal.com reports February 25 .
    The development and production of on-board equipment will be carried out for four years at the facility in Porto Alegre (Brasilia). AEL is wholly owned by the Israeli defense company Elbit Systems. )
