The Gripen Fighter Aircraft


The Gripen Fighter (13 MB Mpeg) is the first of the new generation, multi-role combat aircraft to enter service. Using the latest available technology it is capable of performing an extensive range of air-to-air and air-to-surface operational missions and employing the latest weapons. Gripen is designed to meet the demands of current and future threats, while at the same time meeting strict requirements for flight safety, reliability, training efficiency and low operating costs. Gripen is in service with the Swedish and Czech Republic Air Forces and has also been ordered by the South African and Hungarian Air Forces.

Gripen International is pleased to present its award-winning Gripen video Controlling the Battlefield (37 MB Mpeg). At this year’s U. S. International Film and Video Festival’s annual awards competition, the Gripen video won two Certificate for Creative Excellence awards in the ‘Audio’ and ‘Advertising, Sales, Sales Promotion and Marketing’ categories. The festival, founded in 1968, is one of the world’s leading international events devoted exclusively to the yearly selection and recognition of outstanding Business, Television, Documentary, Entertainment, Industrial, and Informational Productions. The Gripen soundtrack is sung by Yana Mangi Sundgren.

We [Gripen] are also proud to present our brand new video Controlling The Machine (48 MB Mpeg). Launched at this year’s Farnborough International Air show in the UK, this innovative and graphically stunning new product presentation, allows the viewer to get up close and personal with the Gripen fighter. Featuring a virtual guided tour of the world’s first new generation aircraft in-service by Gripen test pilot Magnus Olsson, the viewer gets to see and understand how the modern design and technology inherent in the Gripen, makes it the most advanced and effective aircraft in its class.

    Rob, thank you for pointing this out. I trust all is back in place now.

    Those crafty Swiss, ’tis no wonder they’ve been able to avoid war in recent history. They keep moving [things] around, and one cannot hit a moving target without radar lock.

    I think you mean “those crafty Swedes”.
    Swiss and Swedes aren’t the same thing. :]
