Introducing The Most Feared Military Aircraft…In Sweden
Saab and Volvo are two of the most revered names in commercial automobiles in Europe and the rest of the world. They also make badass fighter jets.
The Saab JAS 39 Gripen is a lightweight single-engine multirole fighter manufactured by the Swedish aerospace company Saab. It was designed to replace the Saab 35 Draken and 37 Viggen in the Swedish Air Force. It is powered by the Volvo-Flygmotor RM12 engine, a derivative of the General Electric F404, and has a top speed of Mach 2, as well as being compatible with NATO interoperability standards. Sounds like a baller to me.
