    See how manicured it is? Western export MIC in a nutshell, it's about looking good, not being capable. Sex sells.

    Plans for the joint production of Gripen NG fighters in Brazil

    According to the magazine "Jane's Defense Weekly" in an article by Victor Barreira entitled "Brazil reveals the Gripen production schedule, Embraer's manufacturing role" with reference to the information provided to him by the Brazilian Air Force on October 5, 2017, the Brazilian side agreed with the Swedish group Saab AB the schedule of supplies and organization of joint production of the Saab JAS-39E / F Gripen NG fighter aircraft in the context of a contact for the purchase of 36 aircraft, concluded in October 2014 for a total of $ 5.4 billion.



    The partner of Saab AB for the joint production of Gripen NG in Brazil will be Embraer, the Gripen NG production and integration and testing center will be established at the Embraer headquarters in Gavian Peixoto, São Paulo.

    In total, Brazil ordered 28 single-seat JAS-39E fighters and eight two-seat JAS-39Fs (officially designated in the Brazilian Air Force F-39). Saab at its Swedish company in Linköping will produce 13 aircraft from this number, including 12 single and one double.

    The first Saab should be built by one experienced JAS-39E aircraft (the first flight is scheduled for July 2019) and JAS-39F (first flight in October 2021), which will be used by the Brazilian side for testing and the certification process.

    Then Saab will build 11 JAS-39E fighters, which must be transferred to the Brazilian side in October-November 2021.

    After that, Saab will produce eight sets of JAS-39E fighter jets, which Brazilian engineers and workers are to be involved in the manufacture of. In total, more than 350 Brazilians will undergo training and training in this production program in Sweden until 2024. Then, these eight aircraft will be assembled from the machine kits on Embraer.

    After that, Embraer itself at the plant in Gavian-Peixoto as part of the joint production should completely build 15 Gripen NG fighters - eight single-seat JAS-39E and seven two-seat JAS-39F fighters. The program of their production should be launched in June 2020, with the delivery of the Brazilian Air Force to the first JAS-39E aircraft completely Brazilian built in August 2022, and the first JAS-39F - in September 2023. The last JAS-39F is scheduled for delivery in November 2024.
