Any mission. Anywhere.
Gripen C-series is the most reliable swing-role combat aircraft available in the world today. Over 150 million people in five countries on three continents rely on Gripen C-series to protect their sovereign air space and ensuring their independence. With successful participation in NATO-led as well as numerous exercises and air policing assignments across the world, Gripen C-series is ready for any mission. Anywhere.
Refuel and re-arm takes less than 10 minutes for air-to-air missions and less than 20 minutes for air-to-ground missions. Gripen requires minimal personnel and ground support equipment for dispersed operations and can operate from a runway no wider than a small, unprepared road, making it more combat ready than any other fighter on the market.
Nations across four continents rely on Gripen to protect their sovereign airspace. After decades of service and numerous NATO-led assignments, Gripen is ready to participate in any joint mission anywhere in the world.
Gripen was created to be airborne: It has a proven high level of availability resulting from consistently low failure rates, ease of operation, maintenance and repair. Gripen is by design the most available fighter aircraft in the world.
Gripen C-series is a master of situational awareness. Link16 / tactical datalink, shared sensor-fused data, embedded decision support and the optimized cockpit Human Machine Interface (HMI) ensures information superiority, putting the pilot one step ahead of the enemy and in control of the battlespace.
Gripen performs tasks in all three combat roles: air-to-air, air-to-surface and reconnaissance. The pilot can change role while airborne, or operate in multiple roles simultaneously. As sensor systems and weapons evolve, Gripen’s multirole capabilities grow.
Continuously developed and enhanced in close co-operation with customers and with the most flexible weapon system of all fighters, results in maximum operational effectiveness and predictable.
Sweden has been an operator since the late 90's and also has the largest fleet of Gripen C/D in operational service. Gripen C/D fighters are currently in-service with two NATO-members nations - Czech Republic and Hungary, as well as South Africa and Thailand. Also ETPS (Empire Test Pilots' School) offers Gripen to their students for the testing of advanced flight control systems, handling qualities and performance.
Gripen C-series is integrated with a great number of weapons and pods from both US and Europe for many types of missions, from long-and short-range and agile air-to-air missiles to heavy air to surface missiles and guided bombs for precision engagement with minimal collateral damage. The aircraft has an inherent precision-strike and stand-off capability and new weapons are easily and inexpensively integrated, making sure Gripen C-series always has a powerful weapon flexibility.
