Welcome back to the our channel for a discussion about some of the most advanced fighter jets designed by European countries. It definitely was developed alongside the Eurofighter typhoon until disagreements in the program led to two different aircraft. They didn’t take styling cues from the Saab as you say. You’re wrong about the Gripen and Rafale. France bailed out of the Eurofighter program and went it alone with the Rafale. Sweden also went it alone on the Gripen program. i would disagree with the statement no country has a monopoly on air superiority. I would say the USA is clearly ahead due to embracing stealth. In-flight refuelling has not been around from the earliest days of military aircraft. That is totally inaccurate. Again, research, or scripting has dropped the ball. French carrier pilot are trained by the US NAVY and get their Carrier Pilot from US NAVY and French NAVY.
