35
At the head office of the Saab AB group in Sweden, the first prototype of the JAS-39E Gripen fighter of the new generation has been rolled out of the workshop, the blog reports bmpd with reference to the site of the enterprise.


The first prototype of the fighter Saab JAS-39E Gripen (Gripen E, tail number 39-08) at the roll-out ceremony at the leading aircraft building company of the Swedish group Saab AB in Linkoping.

The start of flight tests of the prototype (board. No. 39-08) is scheduled for the end of the year. “The sample will be used mainly for testing aerodynamic and flight characteristics and maneuverability,” the company explained.

“At present, the company in Linköping is finishing construction of the second flight prototype Gripen E (tail number 39-09), which is intended for developing weapons systems. The third flight prototype of the Gripen E (tail number of the 39-10) should become a machine in the pre-production configuration in 2018, ”the publication says.

To date, the Swedish Air Force has ordered 60 fighters. Their delivery is expected from 2019-th to 2026. New aircraft should completely replace the fleet of JAS-39C / D (about 100 vehicles) in service.

In addition, more than 30-ti aircraft ordered by the Brazilian Air Force. The possibility of acquiring new fighters by Switzerland is being considered.

    A normal light fighter for the poor ... though the price is still large.

      All weapons are on pylons under the wings, and not inside the hull. So "new generation" - only 4, possibly with pluses.

        Based on an article in VO, he rummaged in various sources, including the official website of Saab, and did not find expression anywhere that the Gripen E is a “new generation” fighter. It seems that the author of the article wanted to pironize towards the Swedes.
        Outside the former Soviet Union, they write that the JAS 39E Gripen is the logical development and modernization of the aircraft to meet the wishes of potential buyers. This is proved by the equipment and engines that the new aircraft is equipped with, and the model designation itself. Started with JAS 39 Gripen and followed by JAS 39A Gripen, JAS 39B Gripen, JAS 39C Gripen, JAS 39D Gripen, and now JAS 39E Gripen. If the tests are successful, then most likely this model will be sold under the name JAS 39E / F Gripen.

        The Swedes have always produced good, high-quality equipment. Starting from airplanes to vacuum cleaners.

      ok guys are engaged in marketing

      We have always been tight and clumsy with advertising. UVZ is trying to break something in this tradition and make normal presentations and normal videos, but with the rest ...

      It seems like a trifle, a pair of projectors + several screens - but spectacularly.

      As far as I remember, half were delivered abroad under a lease agreement. And the fighter is not bad. The great thing is that it is designed with a take-off / landing requirement on the highway.

      This is, of course, how to understand, "for the poor." Of those countries that use Gripen planes, you can hardly call anything "beggar". From potential buyers, too.

          And I’ll live, the turn is not long left, the situation is heating up, I think that global confrontation is not far off, as they say, either we or they. I would have already resolved at last. I understand many against, but I am for!

        Well, let’s say the pepelats for non-warriors. All countries that actively use or are ready to use military equipment take Rafal, Su or F 16 \ 18. India, China, Pakistan, Iran do not take it. Tell me, why do the Czechs have an army? , and you, as any adversary does not come, so go under him!

    What kind of fighter is this new generation when it is just a modernization of an existing one?

    All the same, the Swedes are great in terms of self-sufficiency.
    Not many countries are capable of arming themselves.
    In which case the Swedes themselves can qualitatively arm themselves

      Perhaps during the Second World War they were engaged only in arming and supplying. The cowardly state. As soon as the next buchi comes immediately to the head in the sand and again they will start trading.

      Weakly said. Here are countries capable of independently designing and building combat aircraft:
      Russia, USA, France, cooperation Germany / Great Britain / Italy, Sweden, China.
      Given the number of states in the world in general is minuscule.

    Something is doubtful about the export of this miracle of Swedish military thought. In Brazil, they dumped the previous version with the letter "D" which. But PR is credible! The generation is new, but we won't say which one specifically!

    A great replacement for the F-16, Mig 23/21. Not all countries have money for expensive airplanes. generation, rather 4 ++. All the advantages of the aircraft cover four minuses:
    1. American engine.
    2. availability of equipment BEA system
    3. The prostitutional behavior of Sweden as a provider.
    4. The lack of an entire line of weapons (made in Sweden).
    Oddly enough, in such cases, the aircraft must be designed with engines from different suppliers. at least the French.

    All this makes Sweden, as a manufacturer and supplier, and customers vulnerable to possible sanctions.

    The main advantage of this aircraft is its good visibility of the cockpit, however.

    Gripen E, although a sample, is unlikely to be fundamentally different.

    Almost all post-war fighters created in Sweden are worthy and quite original machines. Given the size of the military-industrial complex in Sweden, one can only be surprised at such significant results. What about

    , so in price and performance characteristics it is approximately in the same niche as our MIG-29 and MIG-35. It’s quite a competitor.

    It is distinguished by developed communication with other influenza and terrestrial systems. With high combat readiness, simpler maintenance, and a longer resource (compared to MiG29), it was simply designed and designed for use in small Sweden later: landing on roads, working on ground targets, naval targets, using the entire arsenal of NATO weapons, working in a single information space and at the same time as economically as possible in fuel and maintenance, and with a long resource and autonomy during aerodrome maintenance. All this is not in the Mig 29 and F-16. They are designed for large armies. In many functions, the Mig 35 will catch up with Grippen, but its contents will be much more expensive. But. for that it does not depend on the sanctions of the United States and its rabbits ....

    "To date, the Swedish Air Force has ordered 60 fighters. Their delivery is expected from 2019 to 2026. The new aircraft should completely replace the fleet in service with the JAS-39C / D (about 100 aircraft)."
    those. now there are 100 cars, in the future there will be 60 (if there are no more orders from our own MO),
    total almost 2 times less. If the new car is not fundamentally different from previous versions,
    in essence, this is a reduction in the country's aviation potential.
    Well done, Swedes, keep up the good work good , and you don’t need to be in NATO!

    I liked the commercial, the hucksters know how to get into everything. In principle, nothing beyond natural. There are big doubts about the "new generation". A smaller fairing in front of the cockpit makes you wonder ...
    1 radar mattresses (painfully similar to F-22)
    2 radars of your own design? (Then his abilities are interesting)
