The Gripen looks way much better! You know, Swedish stuff... ;)

Holland should take the gripen as well, instead of that expensive JSF thing. The gripen is exactly what we (dutch) need, single engined defense fighter. Great photo!

Just look at the aero-dyamics of the russian craft

I agree with that Irish comment. The aerodynamics of older, Russian-built MiG is just so much more sophisticated than Gripen's.

The Gripen is a much cleaner, more purposeful machine. The beauty of the Mikoyan design, though, is that it is far more organic and viscerally threatening (particularly in the paint of a tigershark).

It's a great photo of two great fighter planes!
Having said that.....I get a "kick" out of different folks comments; what you are looking at guys, are "killing machines"; forget the fancy paint job, the "sleek look", just, "who can kill the other guy first"! With that thought in mind.......the new "JSF thing"(that I agree IS funny looking) can kill both of these guys before they know who they are up against! Period.

Fantastic picture of two good machines in their time. One is dated the other one is capable and versatile. And for the JSF;....... before speculating on who kills who, let's wait until that thing is released for service. For the moment it is over engineered, over weight, (way) over budget and way overdue. And there is less expensive more suitable equipment for todays warfare on the market today.
