|JA 37 Viggen|
|Real world information|
|Appearances|| Ace Combat X: Skies of Deception |
The Viggen is a Swedish STOL (short take-off and landing) multirole aircraft built by the Saab Group.
The Saab 37 is a multirole combat unit created to replace the 32 Lansen and the 35 Draken models. Its construction began in 1964, with a functional prototype taking flight in 1967. The goal was to produce an aircraft with excellent STOL performance that would enable it to operate from improvised facilities, such as roads and highways.
The advent of the 21st century saw Viggen eventually phased out of service and replaced with the JAS-39 Gripen, its last flight taking place in 2007.
- The Viggen model originally used in Ace Combat: Joint Assault was the AJS 37 model. However, the final version retained the original JA 37 from Ace Combat X: Skies of Deception.
