The Saab Gripen, first flown in 1988, entered service with the Swedish Air Force in June 1996. It represents one of the most advanced fighters in production today, and follows a distinctive line of Swedish jets including the Viggen and Draken. The Gripen is now raising particular interest in enthusiasts, as the program has become a joint SAAB/BAe Systems venture, and sales have now been made to the air forces of South Africa, and more recently to Hungary and the Czech Republic, with prospects of further sales.
