At the same time, the engineers did not use the expensive modern stealth technology, which reduces the visibility of the fighter. Mats Helgesson, who is the head of the Swedish Air Force, said in a presentation in Finland that such an approach would substantially reduce the price of the production of vehicles. According to military industry experts, Russian Su are superior to modern US fighters during air battles due to maneuverability and the ability to perform various tricks in airspace. Apparently, Saab Gripen E are able to level this superiority.
The new Swedish fighter is equipped with modern special technologies that allow electronic warfare, becoming a real "nightmare" for domestic technology. This model does not use a large number of weapons, it does not apply the effect of invisibility. During the tests, the aircraft was able to imperceptibly approach the enemy liner due to the “jammer” of the electronic incoming signals. According to analysts, thanks to innovative equipment, the Saab Gripen E version can be considered the most advanced electronic fighter.
