COBI Saab Jas 39 Gripen History:
The Saab JAS 39 Gripen (IPA: [ˈɡrǐːpɛn]; English: griffin) is a light single-engine multirole fighter aircraft manufactured by the Swedish aerospace and defense company Saab AB. The Gripen has a delta wing and canard configuration with relaxed stability design and fly-by-wire flight controls. Later aircraft are fully NATO interoperable. As of 2020, more than 271 Gripens of all models, A–F, have been built.
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 in the Swedish Air Force. A new design from Saab was selected and developed as the JAS 39. The first flight occurred in 1988, with delivery of the first serial production airplane in 1993. It entered service with the Swedish Air Force in 1996. Upgraded variants, featuring more advanced avionics and adaptations for longer mission times, began entering service in 2003.
To market the aircraft internationally, Saab formed partnerships and collaborative efforts with overseas aerospace companies. On the export market, early models of the Gripen achieved moderate success, with sales to nations in Central Europe, South Africa, and Southeast Asia. Bribery was suspected in some of these procurements, but authorities closed the investigation in 2009.
A major redesign of the Gripen series, designated JAS 39E/F Gripen but previously referred to as Gripen NG or Super JAS, began deliveries to the Swedish and Brazilian Air Forces in 2019. The changes from the C-series to E-series include a larger body, a more powerful engine, an increased weapons payload capability, and new cockpit, avionics architecture, and electronic warfare system.

I built it over this weekend. Nice looking plane although smaller than the F-15 or the F-14. Enjoyed the building process.

Typical high quality Cobi build, in my opinion the best aircraft set yet.
Maybe I learned something from the Mig 29 set, but keeping track of the camouflage pattern during assembly seemed easier. Cobi clearly realized the earlier nosecone attachments where a weak point and this one is much better!

Great-looking model, fun build, fits in great with Cobi’s other modern aircraft!
Received this one from a friend as a gift and it was a real joy to build! I have the G model; highly recommend iconic aircraft from the height of the cold war, pick one up while they’re on sale!
