  • Types of Aircraft

In summary, the JAS39 is the first of the new-generation canard-delta fighters, which we are assured will provide significant performance gains over all those current designs that began life in the early 1970s.


  • Types d'aéronefs

En résumé, le JAS39 est l'aîné d'une nouvelle génération de chasseurs à configuration delta-canard, qui se révéleront certainement beaucoup plus performants que tous les modèles actuels, nés au début des années 1970.
