Saab has unveiled the air defence systems acquired by the Royal Thai Air Force (RTAF) at its factory in Sweden.

Thailand has acquired Gripen C/D multirole fighter aircraft, the ERIEYE airborne early warning radar system and a command and control C2 system from Saab under a contract.

Saab will deliver six of the latest-version Gripen C/D multirole fighter aircraft to the RTAF in the beginning of 2011.

The delivery of one ERIEYE airborne early warning radar system aboard a Saab 340 aircraft and one additional Saab 340 aircraft will take place in December 2010.

The air force will receive one command and control C2 system, including equipment for three ground-based radio sites in March 2011.
