      Eh? Isn't one of the main sale points of the Gripen that it's relatively cheap and easy to both manufacture and maintain? While the whole US government drama surrounding the F-35 is its price?

        Lockheed has been shitting out F35s like nobodies business, the cost has drastically reduced since it first released, its around the same price of the gripen rn, in the $80m range

          This. The F35 is the 5th Gen Model A. They are making so many it’s getting so cheap. They will be everywhere and that will present its own savings. Every NATO and US ally will know how to wrench them.

        Purchase price is higher, but the lifetime price including maintenance and all that shit should be alot lower.

          For now, you can purchase spare parts.
          If some of those companies stop producing spare parts (or greatly reduce their output making the cost of spare parts go up a LOT) you might end up with long-term costs that balloon well past initial expectations.

          Somehow they peddle this fucking lie. In my country they actually calculated how much we spent on these things, with stuff like maintenance, training, facilities, upgrades, divided by the flight hours and it came out near $30k/hour whereas the Swedes advertised it with like $6k/hour which is pretty much just the cost of fuel.

          It had some major shortcomings compared to the F-16, such as missing weapons and missile integrations that were advertised during the sale, and promised free software updates that became paid ones etc.

          Btw the cost per hour metric is retarded anyways, since nobody can agree what it exactly means to keep an aircraft in fighting condition.

        It's just amerimorons are too low IQ to actually look that the number's available on the Internet is from the Brazilian sale.
        Which came not only the jets themselves, but Tech Transfer and right to produce the plane in Brazil, thus rising the price a lot bigger than it is by just buying the planes.

          Yeah the Huehues are paying 215 mil per Gripen because of tech transfer, but if you want to do flyaway costs the F-35 and Gripen are sort of tied. Nobody ever pays just flyaway costs.

              US contracts for F-35A flyaway is about $80 million these days and will liekly creep down further.

              Swedish contract for Gripen E was around 500 million SEK per unit (US $48 million). I can post links for that but they are all in Swedish.

          It actually came with a full range of live and traing equipment, plus ground equipment and infrastructure changes, wich was the latgest cost. Sweden paid nowhere nere what Brazil did for its Gripen Es.

          The Swedish Air Force paid Saab roughly 500 million SEK per aircraft, wich equals $48 million per Gripen E.

      A lot of the components that was outsourced earlier is beeing taken back to Sweden ever since Covid messed up the international logistics, and delivery times couldnt be met because of it. Or so the guy in charge of production told us when we visited Saab last year. That said, stuff like the engine, hyudralic pumps and fuel systems are originally either US or UK products, they are just modified and produced under licence here. The only major components I can think of beeing produced compleatly outside of Sweden is the ejection seats, wheels and brakes.

          Agreed. They are a bit of a bitch to do maintenance checks on tho, and they arnt very comfy. On the plus side they never seem to fail when they are tested or needed.
