The Saab Gripen was designed as a lightweight multi-role fighter to replace the earlier Saab Draken and Viggen. It is capable of performing air combat, ground attack and reconnaissance missions. It has a similar configuration to the Eurofighter Typhoon and Dassault Rafale but is smaller and single engined.
Although built for the Swedish Air Force it has proved a success on the export market providing a cheaper alternative to the F-16, Rafale and Typhoon while still providing a highly capable fighter aircraft. So far, along with the Swedish air force, it is in service with the following country's air forces, Czech Republic, Hungary, South Africa and Thailand, with potential for further exports.

KPM are a kit maker from the Czech Republic and are part of AZ Models. This kit is a reboxed Italeri kit with new decals and instructions by KP. The kit looks well detailed with engraved panel lines and plenty of internal detail. It comes with plenty of choice for ordnance. There are markings for 3 different planes from Swedish AF.
