Missing AIM-120 (RB-99) on Viggen D

The Viggen D is an improvement on the Viggen C, in years 90s, the main improvement among them was the ability to operate AIM9L and Aim120 (rb99). The Viggen D has a very good radar for a 3rd gen aircraft, and the ability to carry 2x AIM120, something similar to the J8 with its PL12.
I no see reason why this wouldn’t have received the rb99.

The D Viggen was introduced as a C Viggen but with the ability to use Fox 3 missiles, so I don’t know why it doesn’t get access to them with them being in the game now

Exactly!

I think they are limiting the amount of planes getting ARH’s at update launch, i hope they will add more to older planes tho just like Viggen D, but im not too optimistic considering we now have 2 gripens just 0.3 BR apart… could have just skipped the A model and given us the C model just like everyone else, unless they are going to rise amraam carriers alot higher at some point?

Agreed, though still consider this would mean a significant BR increase

I support the idea, it has the PS-05/A that allows BVR engagements that allow the usage of AIM120s.

My guess is that Gaijin wants something to fill the eventual gap that will be made when the JA37D is given its Rb99. I would suggest buffing the JA37C (giving it AIM-9L and maybe BOL pods) and putting it in the current position of the JA37D, then introducing the J35J to the current position of the JA37C.

Gaijin really should include Viggen with Fox 3 too, as the game is inspired by real technical sheets or as close to that as possible according to public documents, etc… This Viggen has Fox-3 missiles.
Please Gaijin, hear our pleas.
