The A-149 Gryphon is a light multirole fighter/attack jet used by the AAF. It was added with the release of the Jets DLC.

OverviewEdit

« The A-149 Gryphon is a fourth-generation, single-seat, single-engine, and all-weather tactical fighter jet. The aircraft was designed as a multi-role platform at an affordable cost, and unlike some of the larger air-superiority jets, it can also perform well in low-altitude flight. Despite its aging platform, the A-149 has still been upgraded with the newest sensors and weapons systems.

Features Edit

Arma3-Gryphon-Loadout

A-149 pylon configuration

The A-149 has six pylons (three on each wing) that support dynamic loadouts.

Unlike its NATO and CSAT counterparts, it is a conventional fighter jet and therefore lacks any internal munitions storage capability.

  • The two inner pylons (1-2) support:
    • AMRAAM C (1×)
    • AMRAAM C (2×)
    • BIM-9X (1×)
    • BIM-9X (2×)
    • Macer II (1×)
    • Macer II (2×)
    • GBU-12 (1×)
    • GBU-12 (2×)
  • The two pylons in the middle of each wing (3-4) only support:
    • AMRAAM C (1×)
    • BIM-9X (1×)
    • Macer II (1×)
  • The two wingtip pylons (5-6) can only support either of the following missiles:
    • AMRAAM C (1×)
    • BIM-9X (1×)

The Gryphon's targeting pod has a laser designator which can be used to provide self-designation when used in-conjunction with guided munitions like the GBU-12.

In contrast to the targeting pods used by its high-tech counterparts, the Gryphon's targeting pod camera is also limited in scope and lacks the ability to fully rotate in any direction.

Trivia Edit

  • The Gryphon is directly based on the real-world "JAS 39 Gripen" multi-role fighter jet designed by Saab of Sweden.
  • However the Gryphon actually appears to be an amalgamation of two variants of the real-life Gripen; the exterior fuselage of the C model is combined with the cockpit and front wheel position of the E model.
