'The Dragon' is a supersonic interceptor built for the Sweden - Air - Force in the 60s. It has a double delta wing. The inner part of the wing is highly swept and is integrated with the airframe. This thick inner wing begins with the engine intakes and makes room for internal fuel, landing gear and fixed weapons. The outer part of the delta wing is less swept to give the aircraft better flight characterics for subsonic speeds. Another design feature was the short take off capability to operate from normal roads.
