Gripen – Always combat ready

July 27, 2019



From the outset, Gripen has been designed to
execute operations in harsh environments – – and from dispersed airbases. The key to operational effect is to get
fighters airborne when needed. Thats why Gripen is designed to make sure
that availability is maximised at all times. Gripen can operate from a
road-strip of only 16×800 metres. This means the fighter can be
deployed from extremely short or – – battle-damaged runways, taxiways,
small civil airfields or even highways. Gripen has been designed for
minimum turn around time. For example, an air-to-air combat set-up,
including refuelling and rearming, – – is done in less than 10 minutes. Using only one technician and
five conscript mechanics – – equipped with efficient and smart
tools and equipment. All Gripen equipment for maintenance
and turnaround at squadron level – – are deployable for operations at
temporary air bases. The equipment needed fits in a
single standard 20 foot container. Gripen fighters can be airborne right after
the scramble signal, – requiring only engine start and
final automatic start up tests.

    It's really cool but if you're required to use that much of an improvised setup you're in trouble.
    This seems made for more of rebel or small militias. Which also isn't good because things like the f22 will decimate this kind of plane.
    It's cool but I am not sure how successful it'll be.

    The swedes are a very clever people,but not clever enough to recognise the threat posed to its future by mass alien immigration….carried out by its financial elite….The Jews…most of whom disguise their identity as jews….crypto jews infact.

    The moment when you realize that you getting out of your bed In the morning takes longer than rearming and taking off a fighter jet

    We'll have to take down a number of Gripen's over Europe since Sweden loves Russia.

    That's all well and good…. But is Sweden worth fighting for any longer… It's being demographically replaced by immigrants who hate the country.

    A weapon system that isn't in constant state of readiness is not quite useful now is it..??? That should be just an expected specification of any weapon system and shouldn't be worth a pat on the back when it is designed as such.. FFS what do they expect a participation trophy for something that should be without having to think about it?
