A little quickie which I thought you all wouldn't mind to see, A gripen in One of the knights of the round table squadrons livery. hope you all enjoy this quick build, and not to worry, the pufferfish is entering final testing phase!

Controls :
- Vtol for flaps (it will make you stall if youre below 240mph or flying without adjusting pitch up)
- AG1 drops fuel tank
- AG5 + brakes activates canard airbrake
- g for gears
- normal flight controls
enjoy!

Squadron :

The Belkan Air Force 7th Air Division, 51st Tactical Fighter Squadron, widely known as the Indigo Squadron, were a Belkan ace squadron that was involved in the Belkan War. They are known for their elegant flight style & their pride in combat, which earned them the nickname of the "Indigo Order of Belka", or "The Indigo Knights" in the Air Force.

Though only the flight leader of the Squadron had seen battle during Belka's period of expansionism, the entire Squadron was soon assigned to the Eastern Front during the beginning of the Belkan War. It was here that the Indigo saw much success. For example, on March 30, 1995 the 51st Tactical Fighter Squadron engaged an enemy fighter squadron, believed to be the 3rd Air Division 122nd Tactical Fighter Squadron of the FATO Air Force over the FATO-Gebet Border. This engagement occurred during an operation aimed at capturing Model a Gebetan City and within five minutes saw many of the FATO aircraft destroyed. Flight leader Dimitri Heinreich alone shot down nine F-14D Super Tomcats within five minutes of the battle's start.


History :

The Saab JAS 39 Gripen (English: "griffin"[Nb 3][6]) is a light single-engine multirole fighter aircraft manufactured by the Swedish aerospace company Saab. It was designed to replace the Saab 35 Draken and 37 Viggen in the Swedish Air Force (Flygvapnet). The Gripen has a delta wing and canard configuration with relaxed stability design and fly-by-wire flight controls. It is powered by the Volvo RM12, and has a top speed of Mach 2. Later aircraft are modified for NATO interoperability standards and to undertake in-flight refuelling.

In 1979, the Swedish government began development studies for an aircraft capable of fighter, attack and reconnaissance missions to replace the Saab 35 Draken and 37 Viggen. A new design from Saab was selected and developed as the JAS 39, first flying in 1988. Following two crashes during flight development and subsequent alterations to the aircraft's flight control software, the Gripen entered service with the Swedish Air Force in 1997. Upgraded variants, featuring more advanced avionics and adaptations for longer mission times, began entering service in 2003.
