The Latest In The Swedish inventory, the Saab-Scania Gripen is a state-of-the-art jet for the Swedish Air Force! However, sadly on its first test flight, the prototype crashed due to failure in its flight systems. But it still is a very promising multi-role fighter in terms of value for money considering that it will be incorporated with fly-by-wire systems.
The Gripen is an extremely agile and manueverable aircraft capable of handling 9 g-force! Like the F-22 Raptor, the aircraft's radar system is designed in such a way, that it displays the pilot the enemy aircraft positions from other friendly pilots' radar systems, while its own radar is off. This enables it to stealthily creep upto the enemy, without risk of showing himself by using his radar!
