Will we see a saab 38 in war thunder?

Here is a poll from 30 of september 2022

I mean it was a prototype than never come to life but it would be cool i think.



The aircraft was projected with 7 general hardpoints: one central and four underwing heavy pylons for bombs, missiles, pods, etc, and 2 wing-tip light pylons for air-to-air missiles.

Note: More more weapons than listed, including counter measure and electronic warfare pods, incendiary weapons, missiles, etc, were planned, we just need more official sources on the matter.

  • Main Gun: 30 mm akan m/75 (Oerliken KCA)

Note: Same gun as on the JA37 Fighter-Viggen. Sources vary on whether this was to be mounted, where it was added and how much ammunition it would have. Probably intended as a centerline outbord gunpod. Hoping for more details in the future.

  • Secondary (pods):

    30 mm akankaps m/55 (gunpods)
    135 mm rakkaps m/70 (rocket pods)

  • Secondary (bombs):

    120 kg sb m/71 (fragmentation bomb / free fall)
    600 kg bk m/90 (cluster munition / guided glide bomb)

  • Secondary (missiles):

    RB04E (anti-ship missile / active radar homing)
    RB05A (air-to-ground missile / manual command to line of sight)
    RB05B (air-to-ground missile / television guidance)
    RB11 (anti-ship missile / active radar homing)
    RB24B (air-to-air missile / infrared homing/ rear aspect)
    RB24J (air-to-air missile / infrared homing / rear aspect)
    RB72 (air-to-air missile / imaging infrared homing / all aspect)
    RB74 (air-to-air missile / infrared homing / all aspect)
    RB75 (air-to-ground missile / television guidance)
    RB83 (air-to-ground missile / imaging infrared homing)


Anti-Radiation Paint: The aircraft’s paint coat was planned to be coated in a layer of paint that would be able to able to absorb signals from radars.

FLIR: Foreword-looking Infra-red, was a component mounted on the nose of the aircraft giving the pilot an infra-red view of the battlefield.

From what I know it was only a mock-up, but in the future when they begin to run out of half-built prototypes it might come to the game.


It was a mockup that was never a prototype and never flew.

Hey, gaijins going to have to keep adding vehicles, and when they stop adding, people will stop playing, we have had lots of paper vehicles in the past, and will, and will probably be the future of war thunder. Looks like an odd mix of a few different planes. Also, put suggestions in suggestions.


I know we’ll see paper vehicles like this eventually, but in the immediate future given Gaijin’s current standards for adding vehicles, this will not come any time soon.
