We are a small group of enthusiastic players that wanted to have a JAS-39 Gripen in DCS. We started from the VSN model and have then added and improved on it. The team is adding a cockpit, authentic and unique weapons, making modifications to the SFM (based on Gripen pilot feedback) and we are planning for much more in the future. The project started in February 2021, and in a very short amount of time, we achieved a basic FC3 module, join us on Discord and find out more! We would like to thank the Community A-4E-C team for sharing some code, Grinnelli for his help with the brakes axis, Freebird and Gonzalodesanta for thier support, Megalax, Isak and 313_Paegas for their textures, Krieger for sharing is assets, VSN Team for sharing their model with us, the DCS modding community for ideas and tips and Eagle Dynamics for this wonderful sandbox..

    • Not currently, I will post here and in the discord closer to release.
  • Q: Do we plan to have a D model (two-seaters)?
    • Yes, but no plans for the 2nd seat to be active.
  • Q: Do you have a release date yet?
    • 6/6/2021.

Q: Do you have a release date yet?

  • Not yet, soon do.

The team is working hard for V1 release. Currently the AA model is done, we are now working on the AG model. Once the mod is more polished we will add information in the first post. You can follow us on Discord to have the latest information.

So, this is just using SFM, not EFM, right?

Seems somehow my post disappeard.

So, i made this model few years qgo but never finished it after the moddig becone much more harder.

Because i like this plane and one of the variant ist currently used in Hungarian Airforce as well, i thought to share this partially UVd modell if its helps to improve the state of the mod.

Is this mod planned to build for the JF11 in the future? I guess this two plane really similar.

If necessary i can help to finish it, but its absolutely depends on you. Contact me if you are interested and discuss the details.

Great one! Finally there! 

But one suggestion before release: Please less reflection on the MFDs!! Look at 0:14 on the video. Too much reflection! 

The whole cockpit is getting a re-texture, that will be addressed for sure!

Is it just me or is the github download capped at 100 kb/s?

-Col. Russ Everts opinion on surface-to-air missiles: "It makes you feel a little better if it's coming for one of your buddies. However, if it's coming for you, it doesn't make you feel too good, but it does rearrange your priorities."

Took me less than a minute; so must be something on your end.

Thanks, I'll check things on my end then!
