Similar to my old profile. <...>

When I saw the pic Greg posted, I immediately thought of your profile.  :) Looking at it closer, there is a difference, though. Your Gripen sports a genuine Ukrainian Flanker splinter scheme, while the camo in Greg's pic actually seems to be inspired by Swedish "Viggen camo", just in Ukrainian colours.
Cheers,

I agree. It looks like it was mostly a color swap.

Rather than emailing them around, I have attached them to this post - that should make it possible for people to view/download as required.

Armenian Gripen anyone?

Quote
Armenia Could Purchase Swedish Multirole Fighter Aircraft
(Source: Pan-Armenian Net; posted Nov 12, 2018)
Armenia’s possible acquisition JAS-39 Gripen fighter aircraft manufactured by the Swedish aerospace company Saab is currently under discussion, the Defense Ministry told PanARMENIAN.Net

According to the Ministry, Armenia is also considering the purchase of fighter jets produced in other countries in order to create a multifunctional air force.

Regnum reported earlier that Sweden has proposed Armenia to buy its multirole fighter aircraft.

Kommersant, meanwhile, said in June that Russia could ship 12 Su-30SM fighters to Armenia until 2024.

And a Su-25 to give an example of what the markings might look like:

Canada's choice just got a little more difficult, reading in the F-35 thread over on SPF, it says the projected cost of an F-35 in 2022 would be the same as an F-18E/F.

Hmmm, a production line in full operation vs. one that's trickling along, has a limited future and came close
to being shutdown in 2017. 
;D

hell F-35A is $77.9 million flyaway as of the last batch. Just for some contrast the Gripen E is "about 85 million" according to Saab in 2016. For Canada in terms off full up costs its always been cheaper than super hornet, Thanks to botched "interim fiasco" the public got to see that for full effect.

yup, the choice might get made for them, the USN navy got their last batch, I Finland is in the air and Kuwait has an order (no idea where they are on that) but now that the USN is calling it quits, that's the beginning of the end for the Super Bug line. wait a few years and that option may not be available, certainly will cost more if it is as well.

the way we leak information to our adversaries, I'd be surprised if the USA let us buy F-35. Unless its a dumbed down version.
