SAAB 37 VIGGEN

$9.95

Titles: Saab 37 Viggen No’s 1 and 2

The Saab Viggen was designed to replace the Saab Lansen in the attack role and the Saab Draken in the fighter role, and first flew in 1967. It incorporated a number  of new and unique features for the time, including the canard foreplane and reverse thrust on the afterburner. It was designed for STOL operations off specially prepared roads and highways, but was also capable of operations to Mach 2.

329 were built in several variants between 1970 and 1990, all seeing service with the Swedish Air Force (Flygvapnet). Although it was marketed in the export arena, no sales eventuated. The aircraft was retired from frontline service in 2005.

We offer two titles including flight manuals covering most variants of this jet fighter series including one in English plus two manufacturer’s brochures. Each title is US$9.95. The flight manuals have been scanned from the original flight manuals and retain any colour pages.
