The J 35J Draken is a Swedish air superiority fighter available to Swedish and NATO decks. It was introduced in Wargame: AirLand Battle

HistoryEdit

The J 35J Draken is a single-engine, single-seat, double-delta winged supersonic fighter developed by SAAB for the Flygvapnet. The Draken series was developed during the first half of the 1950's, and the J 35 was first flown in 1955. It was Europe's first genuinely supersonic fighter and was a considerable aerodynamic achievement for the time. The double-delta wing provided excellent surface area (and subsequently low wing loading) and a decent internal fuel supply for a fighter its size. The J 35J was part of an upgrade program initiated by the Swedish government to modernize the Draken starting in 1985. The upgrades included improvements to the radar, IR scanner, IFF and navigation systems, plus strengthened wings and additional hardpoints for increased missile capacity.

OverviewEdit

AirLand BattleEdit

The J 35J Draken is a relatively inexpensive air superiority fighter available to Swedish and NATO decks. It is armed with an ADEN 30 cannon, two Rb 28 Falcon missiles and four improved Rb 24J's. The J 35J has been given ECM of poor strength. The type is ideal for helicopter hunting with its large short-range missile compliment and cannon, though it is still out-ranged by most PACT fighters. Thanks to its good speed, the type can also be used as an expedient short-range interceptor against enemy strike platforms. Its drawbacks are its lack of a long-range missile and poor ECM, leaving the type vulnerable to long range SAMs and AAMs.

Red DragonEdit

The J 35J Draken is largely unchanged in Wargame: Red Dragon. It carries the same armament, has the same general characteristics and costs the same per aircraft to field. The type no longer carries ECM, but given the weakness of the ECM carried in ALB, the difference should not be significantly noticeable. Its strengths and weaknesses are largely the same in RD as in ALB.
