Viggen! by Hydrothrax Viggen! by Hydrothrax
Always loved the SAAB 37 :) 

Rugged, and with STOL capability! (For a jet, haha)

Ah, finally, another Viggen fan!!

It seems like the SAAB 37 gets overlooked for not being the sleekest-looking jet of that era (though personally I love the aesthetic,) but it was quite advanced for its time. Not to mention its toughness, to operate off of improvised airstrips, complete with STOL qualities. Such rugged design is rarely seen outside of Russian/ex-Soviet jet design!!

Yessss Viggens :D
Who cares if it isn't sleek and shiny, Thats something I love about this generation of aircraft. While they may not have been the prettiest but everything about their appearance was purposeful, function over form. And that has a beauty all its own, especially when compared to the bland shapes everything takes on these days.
