The Saab J-32 Lansen was a multi role fighter built for the Swedish Air Force, that was operational from 1957 until 1997. The Lansen proved to be very good in the ground attack role and a capable aircraft in air combat, however a third of Lansens were destroyed in accidents. The fighter and ground attack Lansens were eventually supplanted and then totally replaced by Drakens and Viggens during the 1970's, however the Electronic Warfare variant carried on until 1997. The B model is the radar equipped all weather fighter version and the E is the electronic warfare variant.
