Шведские истребители

Как всегда, агитка, сравнимая с "лучшими" русскими образцами жанра. "У нас есть такие приборы, но мы вам о них не расскажем".
  • How would you rate the Gripen in the following categories:
A. Instantaneous Turn rates​
B. Sustained turn rates​
C. Acceleration​
D. Climb rate​
E. Range​

Without mentioning specific numbers since this would be classified I would like to expand the question a bit. We have built Gripen to achieve the highest possible operational effect in a number of scenarios defined by our customers. To do this we have to balance a number of factors such as platform performance, sensor performance, weapon performance, avionics, Human Machine Interface etc.
  • What are the best and worst aspects of the Gripen?
The worst aspect of Gripen to me personally is that we are building such a fantastic and futuristic system but it is all on the inside so to speak...
  • How would a Gripen do in the following against a Block 52 F-16?
Generally we stay away from direct comparisons... (При этом интервьюируемый не летал на F-16 и не участвовал в учениях с оными.)
  • Thoughts on Gripen
...for some nations it is a less inflammatory move than purchasing from the US and Russia. But is the Gripen independent from the US? In the past the US has beat down potential rivals to its commercial dominance by refusing export licences (something it may have done in the 1990s with AMRAAM during the search for the next Finnish fighter).
...Also despite Saab’s streamline, unbloated, approach to manufacturing – can spare parts for an aircraft produced in tiny numbers in an expensive country be cheap?
Gripen E is likely to be far cheaper to operate than the F-35 and is likely to be the only aircraft offering comparable levels of situational awareness in the near term.
 
Не говорите глупости. Какая уж агитка. Сравните с рекламки т.н. F 21. Здесь все убрано в разумной степени.
Самая важная фраза та: "These EW capabilities are so highly classified that there is simply no way to assess their effectiveness in the public domain."

Hushkit такой hushkit -все интервью там всегда нужно take with a grain of salt. А это интервью - действительно агитка и ничего более.
