JAS 39 Gripen

Royal Thai Air Force (RTAF) Wing 7 in Surat Thani is the only intercept jet squadron in southern Thailand. The Gripen aircraft will replace RTAF’s ageing F-5 fighters, offering true multi-role/swing-role capability, new generation flight control systems, communications systems, avionics systems and a weapons system. Gripen was selected against competition from American and Russian fighters. A key factor for choosing Gripen was Saab’s ability to provide a complete air defence package including airborne surveillance, command & control and communication. (Photo: Saab)
