​Gripen performs at the NATO Days in Ostrava & Czech Air Force Days. One of the biggest security shows in Europe, NATO Days in Ostrava & Czech Air Force Days presents the resources and the capabilities of the Czech Republic and its allies in the field of defence and security.


​“Gripen C/D with MS20 upgrade and Mk4 radar should be the perfect fit for the Philippine Air Force,” says Magnus Hagman, Campaign Director, Gripen and airborne systems, Saab Asia-Pacific.


At the ADAS 2018 exhibition, Saab had a Gripen C, along with select payloads like RBS15 Gungnir, AMRAAM, and Meteor on static display.

Philipinnes' planned acquisition, also known as the Multi-Role Fighter (MRF) programme is yet to be formalised though. No Request For Information (RFI) has been sent yet. Saab has however, had discussion with the Philippines’ technical working group to understand the military requirements of the country.

​When Brazilian engineers visit Sweden, they do not just learn about Gripen, but also experience a culture entirely different from their own. It is this experience that plays a very important role in understanding each other and forming a great partnership.

​Czech Air Force Gripen presented a powerful aerial display for the Belgian Air Force Days visitors, at Kleine-Brogel airbase earlier this month.


Gripen is built for the pilot. With the most advanced pilot interface and flight control systems, Gripen makes it easier for a pilot to concentrate on the mission. 

Flying a Gripen C requires minimal pilot workload. Hear one of our test pilots as he describes how natural the interaction is between a pilot and a Gripen. ​

​The Czech Air Force Gripen which was painted earlier this year to celebrate 100 years of the Czechoslovak Air Force, demonstrated a stunning aerial display at the Radom Airshow.


​Gripen presented a spectacular aerial display on 20th August in Hungary to celebrate the State Foundation Day of the country. This day is celebrated throughout the country with hoisting of the Hungarian flag, fireworks and displays like this. 

Located in the city of São Bernardo do Campo in São Paulo, SAM will be one of the main future production plants under the Brazil gripen programme. So what will be its exact role? Watch the video to find out.

​For someone like Julia who always wanted to build something, a career as an assembly operator at Saab has been a great learning experience. 

Drilling machines in different shapes and sizes is the most common tool used at the stations. Julia has always been careful and precise. And these qualities come in handy while using these machines while building the central fuselage, the biggest part of Gripen E. 

What is the role of GAC-Saab in the Brazilian Gripen Program? Created in October 2015, the GAC-Saab is indispensable to monitor and control the contracts relating to the acquisition of 36 fighters.
