Are you talking about the F-18E Block 3? Because the F-18E normally has it's data spread among three screens, unlike the F-35 or the Gripen which has one large screen.

Which Gripen has one screen, the same one, E, that isn’t in operational service yet like the Blk 3 SH?

Re: Gripen-M better than Rafale-M, F-18E????

A major factor in considering the Gripen is its penalty in having to trade ordnance payload for fuel. Below is something I wrote on the Finnish F-18 replacement thread I think last year. The Gripen E cannot take off with a full load of fuel and a full weapons payload. It trades weapons payload for f...

Re: Gripen-M better than Rafale-M, F-18E????

If I was starting my navy from scratch, I'd be real interested in the Gripen-M. Same or better performance, better range, uses less deck space, uses fewer maintenance people, and SIGNIFICANTLY lower operating cost. Jane's claimed the land Grippen was $4,700/hour and the F-18 (land version) was $11,...

Re: Gulf War SAMs

It's not obvious that an F-15 at high altitude can dodge an incoming modern missile. The purpose is to trigger the missile launch. Once a lock is detected, you can hit the afterburner and leave the area. From high altitude, you have a better chance to survive. And the trade is not one for one for t...
