RTAF received their last three ordered Gripen
Three SAAB Gripen C aircraft ordered by Thailand safely arrived 4 September at their home base Wing 7 in Surat Thani, Thailand. The aircraft were received by happy RTAF pilots and officers. These were the last of twelve Gripen C/D aircraft Thailand agreed to purchase in a G2G integrated air defense agreement with Sweden signed early 2008. Read more about the ceremony.
Three more Gripen aircraft delivered to Thailand
Three Gripen aircraft were delivered to the Royal Thai Air Force on Friday 5th April, 2013, after a long trip from Linköping in Sweden. The planes took four days to complete the trip, stopping in Hungary, Greece, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Oman and India along the way.
Thailand has ordered a total of 12 planes. The first six were handed over in February 2011, and three more planes will be delivered at the end of this summer.
