The first is JAS39 Gripen C/D and adjacent JAS39 Gripen NG. Both appear in the actual size and some mock-up materials made of real materials. Both of these mock-ups appear in different colors though equally dominated by gray. JAS39 Gripen C/D performed in the usual gray camouflage and JAS39 Gripen NG in digital camouflage specifically designed for it. In plain view, there are a few that stand out. Among them, in the cockpit  of JAS39 Gripen NG, there is only one large-sized head-up display/HUD, than three units pinned on JAS39 Gripen C/D.
The content of fighters management and avionics technology also been several steps ahead conceived its "big brother,' JAS39 Gripen C/D ie NetCentric Warfare. This technology's job to keep everything in the multirole mission operating system that run by JAS39 Gripen NG remains flexible and ensure the stability of data traffic in its datalink functions.
Here is championed by Saab to address the needs of the operator will be the permissibility fighter jets said to be "intelligent", ie the exchange of data takes place simultaneously in the country's defense system. So that is seen and read one JAS39 Gripen NG increasingly sophisticated and increasingly stable and can be simultaneous read and analyzed by the command center, or tanks on land, ships at sea, even a point defense batteries.
