Saab unveils Gripen Aggressor

At DSEI 2017, London, Saab unveiled its Gripen Aggressor platform for the adversary air combat training market.

Customized for the aggressor role, the aircraft – based on the Gripen C – will not be able to carry live weapons.

Jane’s says the decision to showcase the platform at DSEI 2017 is because Saab is eyeing the Royal Air Force’s ASDOT (Air Support to Defence Operational Training) program.

The winner of ASDOT gets a 15-year contract to deliver Red Air services for fighter pilot training and deliver Blue Air training of joint terminal attack controllers (JTACs) and fighter controllers.
