2. How to use the aircraft file:

The airplane in this file requires the use of Chuck Yeager's
Advanced Flight Trainer (formerly known as Advanced Flight Simulator)
from Electronic Arts. To use the plane, simply put it on the same
directory as AFT. AFT will find it and place it in the "planes" menu.

3. The aircraft
Saab JA-37 Viggen

Engine: 1 Svenska Flygmotor RM8B two-shaft turbofan (28,086 lbs. static
Wingspan: 34 ft., 9.25 in.
Length: 53 ft., 5.75 in.
Maximum weight: 37,478 lbs.
Landing gear: retractable tricycle
Service ceiling: 60,000?
Maximum speed: Mach 2 (1,320 mph)
Crew: 1

This is Sweden's premiere jet fighter. It was first flown in 1977
after 9 years of development. This plane is an excellent example of what
a modern fighter should be, as it can take-off and land almost anywhere, even
off of back country roads, which in time of war would definately mean the
difference between elimination and survival. Designed to be a STOL aircraft
(short take-off and landing), it has a flapped canard foreplane and a delta
wing. The canard creates powerful vortices which scrub the main wing allowing for
tight maneuvers and amazingly slow landing approaches; the Viggen actually
has the shortest take-off and landing run of any modern aircraft. The engine
is a licensed version of the Pratt & Whitney JT8D turbofan redesigned in
Sweden for Mach 2 and fitted with SFA afterburner.
