The Saab Viggen was a multi role combat aircraft, that was in service with the Swedish Air Force from 1971 to 2005. It augmented and then superseded the earlier Saab Lansen and Draken to become the main fighter and strike aircraft in the Swedish Air Force until the arrival of the Saab Gripen. The Viggen was first aircraft built in numbers to feature canards and was easy to maintain, reliable and could take off and land on short runways and even motorways. It provided years of excellent service for the Swedish Air Force and is a popular aircraft with enthusiasts. The AF-37 was the camera equipped reconnaissance version of the Viggen.
