Swedish Defense Bill Extends Gripen, Adds New AEW Aircraft
Sweden’s government is planning a major increase in the defense budget that will see the air force keeping JAS 39Cs in service for at least a decade.
The in-service Gripen C/D is set to play a major part in Swedish defense alongside the incoming new-generation Gripen E. The latest MS20 iteration can be armed with the Meteor missile and GBU-39 small diameter bomb. (Photo: Saab)
