The company is also showcasing its wide range of products and systems from the air, land and sea domains at the ongoing air show.
“Aero India 2019 comes as the Indian Air Force evaluates new fighters for its future airpower needs. We are displaying the Gripen E mission simulator which clearly demonstrates how Gripen, the most advanced multi-role fighter aircraft in the world, maximises operational effect in the future battlespace. We are also proud to present a full scale Gripen E along with the game-changing Meteor and the precision attack Taurus KEPD missiles,” says Mats Palmberg, Vice President, Industrial Partnerships, Saab, and Head of Gripen India Campaign.
Saab is also proposing the Gripen M (Maritime) as a fully certified design for a carrier-capable version of the latest generation of Gripen E, which the company is offering to the Indian Air Force (IAF).
The Gripen M will be able to take from any carrier with either a catapult or ski-ramp assisted short take-off.
