STOCKHOLM, Sweden, Dec. 1, 2005 (PRIMEZONE) -- Gripen for Denmark, "Gripen DK," is the successful fighter aircraft Gripen adapted to fully meet specific Danish requirements. Gripen DK is the response to a Request for Information, RFI, for a replacement of the current fleet of F-16 fighters



Thanks for Zion Mainframe for the info



Based upon the Gripen C - its a great aircraft!


hey , Sweden have sold more Gripen`s than France have sold Rafales

You're welcome

The Gripen is just an excellent fighter; not expensive, lightweight, multi-role, reliable, and cheap to maintain.
Countries like Hungary and South Africa just can't afford JSF's or Eurofighters, and I understand Rafale's are also quite expensive.

I think the main reason many countries chose the JSF is because they could help with the construction process, otherwise more countries would have chosen the Gripen.

The Gripen is an excellent aircraft. Good choice to replace the aging, yet still formidable F-16. The Gripen can take up multi-role missions much the same as the F-16, while integrating better avionics and electronics. Is there a video I can see anywhere of the Gripen in flight?

Does anyone know what the Danes requested to be changed/modified/upgraded from the standard Gripen?

Possibly, only the letters DK in the name


This buy is very significant and might prove a worry to the F-35 programme managers.

i`ve heard the number `76` somewhere as the number of aircraft they have ordered (both 1 and 2 seats version)


if thats the case then its bye bye to the F-35 as this replaces the entire F-16 fleet.
