Saab Viggen X-Plane Project

Posted on 21. Nov, 2006 by in 2000-2009, JA 37 (Viggen), Linköping, Sweden, Saab Aerospace

Erik Norberg, Sweden and Gregory Sainz of France have a project known as “Viggen X-Files”. This project is the development of a fully scaled accurate 3-dimensional model of a SAAB JA 37 VIGGEN fighter jet for use in the FAA Certified software program X-plane.

Their dedicated project is a long time coming that includes materials and resources from some notable authorities on the subject. It appears that as of now, Saab Enthusiasts can choose to virtually race a number of Saab automobile models in Need For Speed 4 as well as SAAB Airplane and Jet models in X-plane 8.
