Saab J 32D Lansen 32606

The Lansen at the moment of lift-off for its display during the Saab 70th birthday celebrations on August 31, 2007. This was the first type of Swedish aircraft to be able to exceed Mach 1 (the "sound barrier").
The all-weather fighter version was designated J 32B, and was powered by a licence-built Rolls-Royce Avon Series 200 engine (Swedish designation RM 6A), with an afterburner developed by Svenska Flygmotor in conjunction with Rolls-Royce.
The J 32B was armed with four 30 mm Aden automatic cannons, and could carry four Sidewinder air-to-air missiles as well as rockets. Of the 456 Lansen aircraft built, 120 were delivered in the J 32B version. Six aircraft (including this one) were later modified as target-tugs with the new designation J 32D. 32606 belongs to Flygvapenmuseum, but is operated by a group of volunteers with connection to the Air Force Wing F 7 at Såtenäs.
