The “battles on paper” between the Swedish JAS-39 Gripen fighter and the Russian-made Su-30/35 Flanker have consumed a lot of media coverage, but there are still no early signs of end.
Recently, Swedish military officials have confidently stated that their latest generation JAS-39 Gripen-NG fighter can easily defeat the Su-30 and Su-35 multirole fighters of Russia in an air battle.
The advantage of JAS-39 lies in its compact size and extreme flexibility, integrated with the most advanced avionics systems manufactured in the West. In addition, the Gripen-NG also has an extremely powerful air-to-air missile arsenal, notably Meteor and IRIS-T, giving it a great advantage when fighting both long distance and close range fight.
The Swedish fighter has a secret weapon, as soon as it approaches the enemy, the JAS-39 Gripen will cause electromagnetic interference, so it can freely approach the Russian fighter at the necessary distance for an absolute victory.
