"A multirole light fighter that is used by a total of five countries, including the Swedish Air Force.

This allows it to launch from a runway and a hangar basically cut out of the mountains, with its light maneuverability allowing it to complete a variety of missions. As an aircraft capable of switching roles during flight, it also has the name "JAS-39C", taking abbreviations from Jakt (air-to-air), Attack (air-to-ground), and Spaning (reconnaissance)."

Trivia

  • In many Ace Combat games, the Gripen C has one IRST sensor on the nose, positioned near the cockpit. In real life, the IRST sensor doesn't exist on the JAS-39C. This feature will be introduced on the JAS-39 Gripen NG. Oddly enough, the IRST mounted on the Super Gripen is located in the same place and looks identical to the one in Ace Combat. It is not known if it was a coincidence.[4]
  • In Ace Combat: Assault Horizon, this is the only multirole aircraft that can equip Rocket Launchers, not counting the DLC ASF-X Shinden II or AV-8B Harrier II plus.
