Ask the source for Mirage F-1 STR 16 d/s and ITR 18.5 d/s?

Yaaaaa! A thread about one of my favorite aircraft. Where are all the stars and flags? Come on and show some Draken love people!!


I would love to see an aerial presentation team flying these on the airshow circuit. Where did they go? Are they beer cans now?

Hey Sweden can I have one? My birthday is coming up.

I think the stars feature is only a few years old, which is why most older threads are void of them.

The comment about good designs being copied is logical, but misleading. How many other fighters copied the layout of the EE Lightning? None. And yet it was the fastest climbing and most manoeverable of all the first generation of mach two fighters.

Personally, I think SAAB achieved wonders and are to be greatly admired, though I would like to know if anyone knows how much WW2 German material made its way to Sweden in 1945?

Obvioulsy, taking a vague idea on paper through to actual operational hardware is a huge task that requires great skill, but the similarities of the J29 and A32 to the Ta 183 III and Me P1110 are remarkable and the origins of what became the J35 layout after much development can also be seen in the Henschel P135. I think there is a story there yet to be told and the allies didn't get everything they thought.
