The Saab JAS 39 Gripen (Translating into Griffin) is a light single-engine multirole aircraft, designed to replace the Saab 35 Draken and 37 Viggen. Improved models of the aircraft are made to this day, with the latest version being the Gripen E/F, developed in 2014. It has appeared in Airforce Delta and Airforce Delta Storm, but was dropped for Airforce Delta Strike.

Design

A notably small craft, this is a single-engined craft with twin delta wings, a single vertical stabilizer, and two front canards. It is one of the smaller modern fighter craft today. This aircraft could be considered a modernized, streamlined version of the JA37 Viggen (to which this aircraft was made to replace), considering their basic structure is nigh identical.

Performance

Airforce Delta

A good plane that, like many planes from this game, suffers from the fact it's unlocked after the almighty F-15S/MT Active. It has very high speed and great mobility, but... So does the F-15S/MT. And the latter has higher defenses and power than this thing. Hell, it's got better speed and mobility than this thing, too. It's not a bad plane, it's just... Sadly outclassed. It's better than its appearance in the next game, though... Read below for that can of worms.

Airforce Delta Storm

One of the most baffling downgrades to ever grace a plane. This plane went from being a fast glass cannon to being... A bad plane. All of its stats are medium, the only stat to reach "High" is Speed, and it has a range of one. And it's unlocked in the second half of the game!! This thing somehow manages to be worse than an F-16!! Hell, the Lavi you unlock in the first chapter has better stats than this thing in almost every aspect! It has slightly worse speed, but y'know what?? It's got great defense and four range! This thing is a complete waste of your money, don't bother with it outside of game completion. What a disgrace to a great plane.
