This page is about the Swedish jet fighter J32B. For the attack-oriented version, see A32A.

Description

GarageImage J32B.jpg


The J32B Lansen is a rank VI Swedish jet fighter with a battle rating of 9.3 (AB/RB/SB). It was introduced in Update 1.95 "Northern Wind".

General info

Flight performance

Describe how the aircraft behaves in the air. Speed, manoeuvrability, acceleration and allowable loads - these are the most important characteristics of the vehicle.

Survivability and armour

  • 5 mm steel plate - cockpit floor and spacer plate between frontal armour.
  • 10 mm steel plate - behind the pilot and GIB's seats
  • 15 mm steel plate - armour plates in front of the cockpit section
  • 50 mm bulletproof glass - armoured canopy windscreen

The aircraft provides good pilot protection with steel plates and bulletproof glass.

Armaments

Offensive armament

Main article: Akan m/55 (30 mm)

The J32B is armed with:

  • 4 x 30 mm Akan m/55 cannons, nose-mounted (90 rpg = 360 total)

Suspended armament

Main articles: Rb24, srak m/57B

The J32B can be outfitted with the following ordnance:

  • Without load
  • 38 x srak m/57B rockets
  • 4 x Rb24 missiles
  • 2 x Rb24 missiles + 38 x srak m/57B rockets

Usage in battles

This aircraft excels at being fast, it is important to use that advantage to quickly Boom & Zoom any unsuspecting enemies. Avoid utilising turning manoeuvres with other aircraft as every aircraft with the exception of the F-100D will shake you rather easily and you risk being pulled into a "reversal". Although you can easily out-run most jets, some aircraft like the Etendard IVM, MiG-17AS and Shenyang F-5 will easily catch up. These aircraft prove deadly to the J32B as they will keep up with your turns if you try to evade them, not to mention they also carry air-to-air missiles which they will certainly use to force you to bleed speed (if you don't get destroyed in the process). Your safest bet is to go in a straight line hugging the maximum safe speed (concern for realistic and simulator battles) and hope they pull away.

II Compressor Airframe m/57
III Wings repair Engine New 30 mm cannons
IV G-suit Cover Rb24

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Excellent top speed. Will out-run almost every other jet at its BR range
  • 4x 30mm Akan M/55 that inflict devastating damage
  • 4x Rb-24 air-to-air missiles, same performance as AIM-9Bs
  • Powerful afterburning engine, providing excellent acceleration
  • Integrated radar
  • Slightly above average roll-rate
  • Resistant to high-G manoeuvres (up to 10Gs)
  • Decent pilot protection and airframe endurance
  • Great energy retention
  • Fowler flap design provides excellent lift at low speeds

Cons:

  • Very poor turn-rate at high speeds.
  • Mediocre manoeuvrability, almost every opponent it faces can out-manoeuvre it
  • Very low extended gear rip speed (ensure gear is raised right after take-off and lowered at a safe speed)
  • Sluggish at slow speeds
  • Very inefficient and small air-brake design, requires high angle-of-attack or aggressive banking to bleed excess speed quickly
  • Relatively large target
  • High rate of fire means the ammunition will deplete very quickly, trigger control required

History

In the year 1948, SAAB started to develop a new type of multi purpose aircraft with capabilities such as a strike-fighter, interceptor or reconnaissance aircraft. The project was called P1150 and had the intent to replace the B18, J21A, A21R and the J30 aircraft. After some testing, a swept wing design typical for the time period was decided upon. After some testing with a Swedish jet engine design called the Dovern, it was decided that the engine lacked the desired power so a swap to the British Rolls-Royce Avon Mk.21 engine was decided upon due to its ability to produce more power without its afterburner on than the Dovern could even with the afterburner engaged. The airplane was designated the Saab 32 Lansen and flew for the first time in November 1952 with Bengt Olow as pilot. 

A total of 447 aircraft were delivered to the Swedish Air Force from 1955 until 1960. These were modified and renovated until its retirement in 1997. A total of 10 variants were in service, including the prototype P1150.
