Sweden should also get Gripen C

A few tech mods in that thread have spoken up about the Gripen C having SARH. That is only thing i’ve seen so far. But Im expecting to see more after the actual dev blog

doubt it, they prob want to keep their privileges and if they kick up a fuss they might lose em

not only that. its what the Swedish airforce is using RIGHT NOW. and GB gets it before us. UNACCEPTABLE

Yeah, this is like Giving 1/3 nation the Typhoon and not the other 2. I can only imagine the pain of this decision

the A could have been a decent 11.3 premium to help people grind for Sweden but nope, added now as a roadblock to the C for when that comes just like with the viggens
I would like to note if this was done the A would be even more inaccurate but still

Based upon what i’ve seen of the Gripen A. Could have come to the TT 6+ months ago without any issue. But just with 9Ls. Upgraded to 9Ms if needed in Sep

The only reason not to add it then would have been AMRAAM. But shit don’t have AMRAAM.

Gaijins decisions seem so damn illogical, they even said the A and C as similar, then why not pull an F-16ADF and add it along the A, and just folder them since according to them they are so similar, the people that make decisions seem overly disconnected from the community that it pains me

Yeah. that was always the assumption. That they were totally unsure about IR only or SARH for Gripen A. So opted for Gripen C this update (like for Britain with 9Ms mostly) or with ARH. Im just totally confused by the delay on the Gripen A now.

Britains lack of anything Is very annoying, but has a thin justification. Sweden on the other hand… had something

The engines are slightly better too. This entire patch is cow feces so far.

It’s bad screwing over a nation like this - similar to the MIG29G situation where Germany got the vastly better MIG29 instead of USSR

But doing it to a Nation that’s been waiting for 2 years and have nothing else? That’s a low blow.

I disagree that the 29smt is vastly inferior to the mig29g, at least the smt has advantages over the 29g. The ja39c is just better than the a.

The SMT is a brick compared to the G

So is this gonna be the norm? Adding a new fighter and the country that literally made it always gets the worst variant? What about Italy? There’s literally no explanation on holding the Gripen C for Sweden (ITS COUNTRY OF ORIGIN), but giving it to the UK alone. Literally doing a complete copy paste to the Swedish tree would be way better than making its country of origin wait for its own goddamn plane, while the UK just gets the best one. Picture some random nation getting a F-16C before the US, that is literally what is happening right now with the C variant of the Gripen. AGAIN, There is absolutely no balancing factor influencing this, there’s no explanation other than this being a sick joke to Sweden.

Its also better in every other way?

That’d be all fine and dandy if you didn’t fall out of the sky like a rock at low speeds

The mig29g does too. Just slower to get to that point.

Ah yeah, let’s silence us now too. Why the hell not

So does that mean Britain can get its Hunter F58 back and that Canadian Leopards can be added along side other canadian vehicle like the ADATS in the British TT

If the hunter f58 should go to the british tree then the Canadian leos should stay in Germany by that logic
