These are brand new Gripen photos. The first two photographs are the inaugural pair of Gripens handed over to the South African Air Force on April 7, 2008, and the last two are the Gripen’s Meteor BVR missile firing test taken in March 2008. These Swedish aircraft designers are Michelangelos. Every last one of them.
