It started in service with the Swedi sh Air Force inand for the time being one-seat and 28 two-seat a ircraft have been delivered.
Fourteen Gripen fighters were delivered to th e Czech Republic, 14 were bought by Hungary, 26 ordered by South Africa, an d six by Thailand. Operational ' Comes from the word operate Operating an aircraft for any air force means flying and waging war against enemies to be defeated. And to win any enemy in any circumstance, the air craft to execute this mission must be capable of: 1.
See the enemy before i t is seen. Deter weapons that can defeat it, and be available in times o f war. Feature a superior self-defense capability whether flying ' par ticularly through reduced radar or thermal signatures and by means of early warning and counter measures particularly anti-missile systems ' or on ground ' with characteristics that reduce its dependability on fixed and vulnerable bases.
Integrate with the force's warfare system, which incl udes radars, early warning aircraft and flight control, communications, tac tics, techniques and doctrines to maximize the existing equipment. Have the highest possible availability, i. To that end the aircraft has to: 6.
Une mise au point?
Be in line with the air force budget to assure all ite ms listed above. Just having a fighter aircraft is not enough.
It will be used for 30 years or more. This time comprises decades during which the a ir force budget will determine the extent slabire tunel infrarosu pareri which it will be able to use i ts fighter aircraft.
The shorter the extent the smaller will be the nation 's defense capability, as you cannot learn overnight how to fight your enem ies in the sky. Looking at the all competing aircraft under these priorities, we can say th at the three aircraft that are offered to Brazil easily meet the requiremen ts of a general air force.
However, what changes in the specific aircraft evaluation is how they perform the above requirements and how they adjust t o the Brazilian model.

In terms of sensors that provide early warning, the three competitors offer next-generation or in-development radars.
And all of them have plenty of super puma suisse anti aging to integrate it with the aircraft.
Rafale's R BE2 is in the final development stage, and Gripen's is in an advanced desig n stage. The same can be said for weapons. The Scandinavian aircra ft can also fire the next-generation Meteor missile.
Cabal purge starts in the UK, what about the US?
In the short range arena, the Rafale uses the same missile while the American and the Swedish aircraft use specific missiles for short-range combats, like the next-gene ration AIM-9X Sidewinder or the Python 4 and 5 made in Israel. In super puma suisse anti aging aspect, the key to differentiate the three aircraft are the missiles that the Brazilian industry currently has in production and in development, and that will be integrated with the winning aircraft.
These are the weap ons today in the short-range air-air dominance and in the anti-radiation ar ena that will make the difference. Developed by Brazilian scientists they hold secrets that provide FAB with an enormous advantage.
The combination of these weapon's production, homologation and operation will assure a giga ntic growth for the increasingly important Brazilian missile industry. Super puma suisse anti aging three competing companies can do it and therefore, the company that will m ake this weapon integration with the aircraft it is offering for the smalle r price will most certainly have an enormous advantage in the weapons dimen sion.
The Gripen is ahead of the super puma suisse anti aging in this dimension as it is the air craft that is testing the A-Darter in South Africa; the A-Darter is being j ointly developed by South Africa and Brazil.
The important thing in terms of weapons is the availability of short- and medium-range air-air missiles, anti-radiation missiles, all kinds of bombs, organic cannon, jammers, and designation, reconnaissance and electronic warfare equipment.
In terms of self-defense the three aircraft are also capable of meeting FAB 's requirements to different extents. The electronic warfare systems direc tly interact with the aircraft central computers and avionics; together wit h weapons they are the most sensitive devices in operating terms. Brazil i s interested to achieve the maximum independence possible in this field. T o that end the three competitors will have to offer FAB a package that is a bove all secure, which means the highest possible control on means.

None o f the three aircraft is a truly stealth aircraft. Like the Raptor, wh ich is not for sale to other countries but the USA, we are left to dream on it and buy the best possible solution. There are no doubts that FAB is cu rrently studying radar, thermal and acoustic signatures of each one of the competing aircraft, aspects of high importance to ensure future survival.
Most certainly the report will take these issues into account. For FAB's new fighter aircraft to be integrated with the force carefully bu ilt war system, the new aircraft's and FAB current aircraft's operating phi losophies will have to converge. If a given aircraft was developed to perf orm a specific role, adapting it to another operating system will require f or this aircraft to undergo modifications and adjustments so that it can ef ficiently operate with the Brazilian system, otherwise you have in hands a round screw and a square nut.
