RoleAttack, fighter, reconnaissance
First flight8 February 1967

The Saab 37 Viggen (“Thunderbolt”) is a retired Swedish single-seat, single-engine, short-medium range combat aircraft. Development work on the type was initiated at Saab in 1952 and, following the selection of a radical delta wing configuration, the resulting aircraft performed its first flight on 8 February 1967 and entered service in 21 June 1971. The Viggen holds the distinction of being the first canard design to be produced in quantity. The Viggen was also the most advanced fighter jet in Europe until the introduction of the Panavia Tornado into operational service in 1981

The Saab 37 Viggen was a multirole combat aircraft developed and produced by Sweden in the 1960s and 1970s. It had a distinctive design with a delta wing and a canard foreplane, as well as a thrust reverser that enabled it to land on short runways. The Viggen was capable of performing various missions, such as fighter-bomber, reconnaissance, maritime patrol and interceptor. It was the first canard aircraft to enter operational service and the most advanced fighter in Europe until the introduction of the Panavia Tornado. The Viggen served exclusively with the Swedish Air Force until its retirement in 2007, when it was replaced by the Saab JAS 39 Gripen.
