AJS-37 Viggen

The Saab 37 Viggen is a Swedish aircraft, capable of many different tasks. The Viggen was a state of the art jet when it was first created. It has since been replaced by the JAS-39 Gripen, but that does not mean it is an ineffective aircraft.

The AJS-37 is a strike variant of the Viggen. It can carry many different types of weapons, such as the AIM-9 Sidewinder or the AGM-65 Maverick. Another notable weapon the AJS-37 is capable of employing is the RBS-15, which was developed from the RB-04 anti-ship missile (also used by the Viggen).

I made this because the Viggen is one of my favorite aircraft. It looks so good, and it is a very deadly aircraft if used correctly (in DCS world). While not everything is perfect, I do love how it turned out. I decided to add a cannon, because the only real distinction (in KSP) between the fighter and attacker variants is the weapons, and you can simply swap the current ones and change the variant.

The 30mm cannon is not at all how it should be (it’s an M230 that is completely restricted, and tucked away in the radome), and neither are some other things, but I think it’s pretty freakin' awesome, even if it isn’t perfect.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.3.0.

(Edit: Added second engine clipped into first one; the plane barely has enough thrust to fly with only one. Also, changed cruise missile to AGM-86C, because the RBS-15 usually boosts itself into the ground)
