Sales pitch. What would you expect him (Swedish General) to say?

Its moot anyway, the Great Northern War ended a loooong time ago!

Everything old is new again.

A very nice design.

Reminds me of the Spitfire a bit, given its capabilities and singular focus.

Wonder which country(ies) are planning on replacing their aircraft squadrons with new designs. Seems like an excellent marketing document to me, and imagine it is appropriately timed to sway their public and politicians.

Actually sounds like a very viable option.


After all, the Serbs were able to use 'obsolete' Russian radar to down a F-117, so 'stealth technology' is just a step ahead of an upgrade in detection systems.

The Gripen is a very good bird, but it really needs a much larger fleet (not just in Sweden, but lots of places buying it) to get the price down.

True but it is still cheaper than the F-35 ;-) There are a bunch of potential buyers of the new E, the Swiss had actually chosen it for their next fighter but then it got axed thanks to a referendum. The Austrians are supposed to be looking for a replacement they can actually aford to fly rather than their failed Eurofighters. The Finns want to replace their F-18s, perhaps the Gripen can win this time.
