Not too stealthy, but very cool.
I hope the aircraft are better than their 4-wheel vehicles.
If your arsehole was on fire, you'd be moving at 780 MPH too!
That's the 2-seat trainer version. Very cool aircraft. The Swedes have built good fighter planes dince WWII.
Being kinda weird, every time I see a clean burning jet engine like this one, I think of the black smoke coming from an F4 like an 18 wheeler engine braking.
A Viggen. That mean it only burns vegetable oil?
I always thought the little winglets were cool,was there any advantage with this?
oh hell yes! on the one hand, if canards stall before the main wing, the main wing won't stall. again, pitch control surfaces always have clean air to work with. vortices generated by the canards help keep main wing airflow attached to delay stall of the main wing, similar to what F-16 strakes do to that aircraft wing. Delta wings generally are all about top speed. this aircraft is similar to F-16 in some ways, best dogfight speed is between 350 and 450kts. turns like the hammers of hell. can carry lots of ordnance. not as squishy on the controls like lawn darts/vipers. And guns. what more could you ask for. from before fly by wire was common.
