In Sweden, began assembling the first two-seater "Gripen F" for the Brazilian Air Force

Saab has begun construction of the first Gripen F two-seat aircraft for the Brazilian Air Force. According to the press service of the company, a metal cutting ceremony for the fighter was held at the enterprise in Linkoping, and the first components of the air intakes were assembled.


As stated, the two-seat version of the Gripen F fighter was developed on the basis of the single-seat Gripen E, from which the double is denounced by the installation of a seat, displays and controls for the second crew member. Gripen F will be used both in the training mode of the second crew member and in the mode in which crew members can share the workload by entering various settings on the display equipment used.

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tender for the supply of the country's air force to fighter aircraft to replace the obsolete Dassault Mirage IIIE / D, withdrawn from service in the 2005 year.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 single-seat Gripen E aircraft and eight two-seat Gripen F. Moreover, the contract states that Brazilian fighters must be specially modified to meet the requirements of the customer's air force. In the version for Brazil, Gripen 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.

    How much money we invest in weapons, but the mind is not added. It seems that humanity has already defeated old age, disease, poverty and now, now, there’s simply nowhere to put money in, therefore we are inventing new ways to kill.

                  Terms of the contract: reinvestment of 100% of the contract amount in the Brazilian economy, the winner must (at least) deploy licensed production of fuselages, avionics and engines in the territory of the buyer, as well as transfer a number of key technologies for their aircraft. The creation of joint ventures with Brazilian companies was welcomed.
                  The following were excluded from the competition:
                  - The Su-35, which was at that time under development, the Brazilians considered "raw"; -
                  - Lockheed Martin has refused widespread technology transfer;
                  - Eurofighter failed to offer a sane development program Typhoon.
                  The "Frenchman" simply did not suit the military.

                      Substitution of concepts: That is, it’s not the USA that is ruining the Venezuelan economy and barking at it (you see something they don’t like), but Venezuela is guilty, allowing itself an independent policy that the USA does not like, and therefore it’s guilty? in your opinion, the right to behave this way only because it has leverage over it? But what about freedom, equality, democracy? Only for the USA?
                      And so the United States is not eternal, but the one who will not enter into confrontation with them will survive ...

                      Just how will those who did not dare to enter into confrontation live with them in the new world? Those who dare to confront and prepare to live independently and relying on their resources will find themselves in a much more favorable position in the new world.

                        This is exactly what Iran was appointed the scapegoat, because it does not bend under anyone. Which, from the point of view of the United States, is a crime against its hegemony-dictate. I doubt the Iranian victim. The USA is not in shape now. Yes, and Iraq was once Americans the same Iran and Saudi Arabia each helped to topple over in their own interests.
                        I will repeat my questions. Your opinion is interesting.

            Oil in the territory of Venezuela is not its property? Maybe transnational corporations expropriated the property of Venezuela to Chavism? And then before Chavism oil was taken away from Venezuela and not even divided.

            Venezuelans do not know how to process and at a relatively low cost they can produce heavy oil, and it is in Mexico like that
            And without refining, this oil is worth nothing, in the United States there are cases when such oil is not only given for free, but also paid on top
            When Chavez took the companies from foreigners, namely they debugged oil production in Mexico, then they worked for some time on the old margin of safety, but the further the more difficult, the cost increases and competitiveness falls
            “Take away and share” happened, but then managed on their own, completely failed
            What Venezuelans are now reaping

            Property is material assets created by people, and oil is a natural resource. The state sells licenses for its development to someone who can start developing deposits and then receives taxes from a barrel, so when the state squeezes the company from the owner, this is essentially a wreck , called nationalization .... But the raters must be killed, so that it would be disgraceful for others ....

    What is meant by “in Brazil from scratch?” Brazilians will also make engines? If not, then it’s already on the principle of assembling a Lego constructor from foreign components.
