Also it possesss a modern edge computer for the shot control, liquid crystal screens colored and one head-up display (HUD) of ample visual field. Its engine is the turbo-fan GE American F404, produced under license for the Volvo, that increased its push in 10%. The 39 JAS Gripen reaches up to 2.126 km/h.O Gripen NG concurs in the licitation of the Air Force Super supersonic Brasileira.Caa F/A-18EF HornetO Super Boeing F/A-18EF Hornet is a supersonic aircraft of aerial interception and ground attack. F/A-18E and F/A-18F are bigger and more advanced than its predecessor the F/A-18 Hornet. The Super Hornet entered in service in the United States in 1999, and had substituted the F-14 Tomcat in 2006 and will have to serve in set with the originals Hornets F/A-18C (if they keep operational but with a gradual substitution for the Super Hornets). In 2007, the Real Australian Air Force bought 24 Super Hornets for substitution of the old F-111.A great advantage of this fighter aircraft, it is the fact of it to be being used largamento in operations of war in countries as the Afeganisto and Iraq, and to demonstrate its efficiency and its effectiveness in the practical one. After many years finally the Brazilian Air Force it decided to choose the supersonic airplane single-engine Gripen NG, considered for specialists in very inferior aviation to the others technical two competitors: The supersonic airplane Rafale and Super superdnico airplane F/A-18EF Hornet, without a doubt one of the best ones of the world in action. The result as informs the periodical Leaf of So Paulo tends to generate constaints in the government and more delays for the decision on the project when opposing the evaluation technique of the Aeronautics to the preference politics of president Lula and the area diplomatics for the Frenchmen.
The decision pr-Rafale arrived to be announced in official note, in September for the federal government. But later the government negative repercussion in the BAF and between competitors withdrew after. Although and Palace of Plateaus can ignore the report and opt to the purchase of the supersonic airplane Rafale or dislike France and opt to Gripen NG the Brazilian Air Force already took its decision that was to choose the Swedish airplane of the Saab. However, formal, Squid can choose any one of the three, but it will not make it. In accordance with the news article of the Leaf of So Paulo, ' ' summary executivo' ' of the report of the BAF, with the final conclusions of more than the 30 a thousand pages of data, it pointed the financial factor as decisive with respect to the classification of the Swedish hunting: Gripen NG, even for being single-engine and still in phase of project (if it bases on the current Gripen, an inferior version in performance), and is cheapest of the three final competitors. The decision of president Lula will be very difficult. If it to decide for the winner of the licitation the supersonic hunting Gripen GN will be disliking in full French president Nicolas Sarkozy, its friend as well as to the Americans. The problem with the Frenchmen is more complex because proper president Lula already had announced that she would buy the French huntings Rafale manufactured for the Dassault multinational, that as information of the French press would be almost declared insolvent.
