MS20 up­grade for Czech Air Force Gripens

Vayu Aerospace and Defence - - World Aviation & Defence News -

The Czech Air Force has com­pleted the MS20 ca­pa­bil­ity up­grade of its fleet of Gripen fight­ers, en­hanc­ing com­bat and com­mu­ni­ca­tion ca­pa­bil­i­ties. The MS20 up­grade im­proves the Gripen’s abil­ity to en­gage ground tar­gets by in­cor­po­rat­ing un­guided and laser-guided bombs into the weapons load with airto-air ca­pa­bil­ity en­hanced by in­tro­duc­tion of new radar modes. An­other key el­e­ment is in­te­gra­tion of the tar­get­ing elec­tro-op­ti­cal pod Liten­ing III, which will be used not only for guid­ing mis­siles and bombs, but also in ae­rial re­con­nais­sance and com­bat. The up­grade also im­ple­ments the Al­liance datalink, Link 16, as well as cryp­to­mod­ules for covert com­mu­ni­ca­tion.
