    Sweden's Air Force says its Gripen E fighter jets are designed to kill Russia's fearsome Sukhoi fighter jets, and that they have a "black belt" in that type of combat.
    The Gripen E can't carry the most weapons, has no real stealth, isn't the longest-range, fastest, or even cheapest jet, but has a massive and respected electronic warfare capability.
    The Gripen E is Sweden's cheap solution to killing Russia's fighter jets and surface-to-air missiles, and Russia probably can't do much about it.

    Yeah but can their hand full of jets beat off 100's of Russian ones. The Russians didn't beat back the Germans with superior tech, they did it with massive numbers and stubbornest.

    "Great (military) news from Sweden". You don't see those words too often.

    No military news is typically good news.

    When did we last hear of good military news from Switzerland? Like I said, no news is good news.
