What's the accurate data of JAS-39 wing area?
Both from 25, 27, 28 to 30 m^2 showed on internet.! What a big disparity it is!
If you like play model, and made both of F-16 and JAS-39 before, would u tell me which one's wing area seem to be bigger while you completed them?

Both wikipedia and airtoaircombat list the Gripen's wing area as 274.91 Sq ft. / 25.54 Sq M. Every other sites I checked list the wing span as around 8.40 M, though they do not have information about wing area.

Wing area of F-16 is larger than Gripen's, at 299.99Sq ft. /27.87 Sq. M. F-16 comes with a more powerful engine too.

The wing area data of Gripen I got by survey 3view line dawing is approxi to 28 square meter. I have been suspecting that 25 ms for long time, as the square seem to be too small for a delta wing fighter. We should remember that Gripen length and wing span just less than F-16 about 1 meter, no more, so even F-16 as a normal layout wing get over 27 meter square, the Gripen only 25 m^2 is impossible.
