"We are preparing for the next phase of flight trials – that is, external stores," said Jonas Hjelm, Head of Saab aeronautics at the recently held Annual Gripen seminar.
So far, all the milestones under the Gripen Brazil programme, like the launch of GDDN and SAM and the first flight of Gripen E, have been right on schedule.
“Since the first prototype's flight debut in June 2017, the programme has remained on track, with recent milestones including achieving supersonic flight,” he added.
The seminar which aims at giving an insight into the fighter, covered important areas like the continuous evolvement of the Gripen C/D platform, progress on cooperation with Brazil, and current and future sales prospects for Gripen.
