The first serial produced Swedish Gripen E aircraft has now entered the joint verification and validation programme. 
To mark this important step in the programme Saab showed the aircraft to the Swedish Defence Minister, representatives from The Swedish Defence Material Administration (FMV) and Swedish Armed Forces.
The aircraft performed its first flight in November and is now part of the joint verification and validation programme, a cooperation between Saab, the Swedish Armed Forces and FMV, where the aircraft and its functions are tested all the way from basic systems up to full operational capabilities.

J-11 Cinesi contro Gripen Tailandesi.

Risultato dei combattimenti simulati non necessariamente scontato: sulle corte distanze i Gripen si fanno male, mentre sulle lunghe a prenderle di brutto sono i J-11.

Da sottolineare come l'addestramento conti parecchio e possa spostare gli equilibri determinati dalle macchine.

Gripen E ... Saab esprime soddisfazione per i risultati dei primi test ... mentre il programma accelera ...

Quote

Saab’s Gripen E test fleet recently passed the combined 300 flight hour milestone, the company says, as the programme moves into more advanced territory.
“We’re really now accelerating our test programme,” says Eddy de la Motte, Saab’s head of Gripen E/F business unit, adding: “we’re now shifting focus to more testing of tactical systems and the sensors.” 
He notes that the aircraft’s Leonardo-supplied radar and infrared search and track equipment and Saab-developed electronic warfare suite are not only meeting expectations, but “performing better than expected”.

The flight took place at Saab’s Linköping airfield on April 8. 
During the 90-minute sortie undertaken by a JAS 39D trials aircraft (serial 800), the radar was successfully tested against aerial targets of opportunity and a range of ground targets. 
Speaking to AIN, Anders Carp, senior vice president and head of Saab's Surveillance business area, noted that the radar demonstrated good capability and stability throughout the test mission.

Il primo volo del Gripen E in Brasile ... il commento di AINonline ...

Quote

On September 24 the first production Gripen E from Saab’s Linköping, Sweden factory arrived at its new home at Gavião Peixoto, where Saab and Embraer have established the Gripen Design and Development Center, with a co-located flight test center.
The aircraft’s journey began with it being loaded - fully assembled - aboard a vessel at Norrköping for the transatlantic voyage. 
It arrived in Brazil on September 20 at the port of Navegantes, where it was craned ashore. 
After being towed on its own wheels at nighttime the short distance to the local civilian airport, the aircraft underwent ground tests before taking off on the final leg of its journey to Gavião Peixoto.
It was the first time that the new fighter for the Força Aerea Brasileira (FAB, Brazilian air force) had flown in Brazilian airspace. 
The ferry flight was accompanied by a pair of Northrop F-5M fighters, while Caracal and Black Hawk helicopters were held at readiness should any emergencies arise.

La Svezia aumenta il bilancio della Difesa ... e il numero dei Gripen E che verranno acquistati potrebbe crescere di alcune decine ...

Quote

The Swedish defense ministry published a 181-page document on October 14 that outlines a defense bill to be put before the Riksdag (parliament). Having gained cross-party support, the bill is scheduled to become law on Feb. 1, 2021. 
Known as Totalförsvaret (total defence) 2021-25, the bill covers the largest increase in defense spending in Sweden for many decades. Funding levels are to increase by SEK27.5 billion ($3.1 billion) compared with 2020.
--- --- ---
In terms of Flygvapnet (the Swedish air force), the bill proposes that the current force structure of six combat aircraft squadrons will be maintained through the 2021-25 period. 
Four will convert to the JAS 39E Gripen as they are delivered, while two will retain the JAS 39C/D
Under initial plans, the Gripen E was to have replaced the C/D completely, but in recent times it has been seen as increasingly likely that C/Ds would be retained in view of growing regional tensions. 
The bill expects the Gripen C/D to be “an important part of the war organization beyond 2030,” while noting that C/Ds can also be employed for advanced training. 
Currently, Sweden has 60 Gripen Es on order, and the bill gives no details of future Gripen numbers, although it is estimated that the force will comprise around 90-100 fighters.

All flights follow authority-defined procedures and take place at high altitude, above 5.000 meters.

Missili IRIS-T e Meteor nonché migliorie varie nell'avionica per i Gripen C/D ungheresi ...

Cita

The Hungarian government and Sweden’s FMV defense materiel administration have concluded negotiations over the upgrade of Hungary’s leased Saab JAS 39C/D Gripen fighters to the latest Mission System (MS) 20 Block 2 configuration. 
Under the deal—announced by Saab on January 12—the aircraft will receive enhancements to sensors and communications, as well as expanded weapons options.
Improvements to the PS-05/A Mk 4 radar increase the sensor’s air-to-air target tracking range, as well as other performance improvements. 
They include better clutter suppression and enhanced detection capability against small aerial targets. 
The radar also offers growth potential for additional air-to-air and air-to-ground modes.

Il Brasile acquisterà altri quattro caccia F-39E (Gripen E) ... e non saranno gli ultimi ...

Cita

Brazil is set to order four Saab-Embraer F-39E jets in addition to the 36 already purchased in 2014 under a $4.7 billion contract. 
The country is also considering ordering another batch of at least 30 F-39E fighters — the local designation of the JAS 39E Gripen NG.
Sweden’s Gripen NG was officially selected in 2013 to provide the Brazilian Air Force with an advanced, fourth-generation-plus fighter jet under the F-X program. 
The decision followed a protracted process launched in the mid-1990s, which suffered several delays and was at one point suspended by then-President Fernando Henriquez Cardoso in 2002. 
It was restarted in 2008 by then-President Luiz da Silva.
