Gripen NG Demo To Land In Bangalore Mid-May!


I guess this clears up the debate. For those who were wondering why the Gripen Demo wasn't participating in the trials, the aircraft (see my earlier post) will arrive in India in the middle of May to wrap up the India-phase of MMRCA trials for Saab's JAS-39. A pair of Gripen-Ds recently completed trials in the country at Bangalore, Leh and Jaisalmer.

What a beautiful bird. The only sad part being it has an American engine.

Beauty it is. I like the swedish ingenuity. Quality must be rewarded, even if it is from an underdog. I would like IAF to go for 80 Gripens and 50 MiG-35's.

Shiv, your articles are highly current and topical, but you need to check your facts in greater detail, especially on MMRCA...

Just put EJ200 in this and it should be good.

Today 18 JAS 39 Gripen appeared in Stockholm at the Royal Wedding in Sweden. You can look for yourself how impressive this bird is at this clip on youtube:
