Combat Range and Radius
Thanks to its increased fuel capacity, the Gripen NG in the Combat Air Patrol configuration achieves a combat radius of 800 nm (nautical miles), or 1.500 km, from the base of operations, with more than 30 minutes “on station”. It has a ferry range of 2200 nm (4.000 km).
See First – Hit First
A combination of low radar, IR and visual signatures, a smart digital cockpit, along with a state-of-the-art AESA radar, an Infra Red Search and track (IRST) sensor and superior sensor fusion, including world leading new generation weapons integration and the electronic warfare suite, ensure a high probability of victory in any engagement.
The Gripen NG is the most agile fighter in the world in close combat. It combines an advanced aerodynamic layout that uses a canard and delta wing configuration, together with its triplex, digital fly-by-wire flight control system (FCS).
High Operational Availability
Minimum logistical support requirements lead to a high level of operational availability.
