About the Aircraft

The Viggen is a fighter developed independently by Sweden and operated from 1971 to 2005. It was equipped with a canard on the left and right of the air intake and adopted a delta wing as the main wing. The engine was equipped with one RM8B and demonstrated a maximum speed of Mach 2.1. It boasted STOL performance that enables takeoff and landing on short runways. In 2000, the 2nd and 3rd Squadrons of the F16 Wing were closed and reorganized into a single squadron, and a commemorative paint scheme was produced. The Viggen, painted in the 2nd Squadron's blue colors, was unveiled at the 2001 Air Show in Uppsala Air Base, which marked the 75th anniversary of the Air Force's founding. It was nicknamed "Blue Peter" and became very popular.
