Hmmm, other, and more up to date, opinions than some of those in the boxes are available..............

I'm not sure what "moderately objectable deficiencies" means.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

This would appear to have been made by a Rafale fanboy.  ;D

I get the feeling that that may have been published by Dassault. ;)

PRECISELY!

*reads the boxes and does a spit-take all over the work vehicle* Cough! Gag! Rafael fanboy to be sure! If a manufacturer made it, 'twould have actual performance data, not just unsubstantiated opinion. As a fan of the Gripen, this is... I just don't have the words... At least not any suitable for you honourable gentlemen, to hear, much less read.

From now on when things aren't going my way, I'm going to exclaim, "MINIMUM EXPECTED CAPABILITIES NOT ACHIEVED!  :angry: "       ;D ;D ;D


This stuff reminds me of "Ford versus Chevy."  :unsure:

And whoever wrote MINIMUM EXPECTED CAPABILITIES NOT ACHIEVED for the ground attack capabilities of the Typhoon obviously never saw a pic of them lifting from Akrotiri in recently. Not a single stores station unused!

I went back and had a look at the source places for the images and the threads containing them were from 2015 or 2016 so take that as you will. Not what I would consider old but then again the image itself could be quite old. Doesn't help the malarkey factor any though.  :wacko:

Again, I didn't bother reading any of it. (yet  ;D )

The picture is showing an abstract of the leaked Swiss evaluation of 2011, all the comments in the boxes were done by the Swiss Air Force during the evaluation. So readers have to take into account the date of the comments and the very unique Swiss context.

There is a new ongoing evaluation nowadays in Switzerland, and things are a little bit different (Gripen E is out of the game, and Typhoon more mature than in 2011 of course).

That's probably it!! They all look similar from a distance and hard to tell apart for someone not that versed on them.

Intakes are the key thing here:

Gripen: rectangular side intakes

Rafale: oval lower-side(?) intakes (hard to describe)

Typhoon: rectangular chin intake with central splitter
Neophyte: Is Eris true?
Malaclypse the Younger: Everything is true.
Neo: Even false things?
MtY: Even false things are true.
Neo: How can that be?
MtY: I don't know man, I didn't do it.
