The Saab 105OE was an improved version of the Saab 105XT export demonstrator prototype designed for the Austrian Air Force, which itself was an improved version of the Sk 60B with General Electric J85 turbojets instead of the Turbomeca Aubisque used in the Sk 60. The first Austrian Saab 105OE was delivered in July 1970 where they replaced the Saab 29 Tunnan and de Havilland Vampire. Austria received 40 aircraft in total, and they were finally retired after 50 years of service on 31st December 2020.

Introduced in Update "Hot Tracks", the Saab 105OE is a variant of the Saab 105G found in the Swedish tech tree, though representing its service with the Austrian Air Force. The main difference between the two aircraft however is the modified wing found on the 105G, as well as a slightly more powerful variant of the GE J85 engines. Unlike the Saab 105G, the Austrian version also does not have access to any bombs, this is offset by the ability to mount Rb05A missiles. This ability is missing on the Saab 105G. In terms of flying characteristics, the plane is quite manoeuvrable, although not very fast with poor acceleration due to its turbofan engines.

There is no armour on the SAAB-105ÖE; the internal modules of the aircraft are fairly spaced out with engines far apart in the rear fuselage and fuel tanks taking up all of the wings and a portion of the forward fuselage.

Usage in battles

Describe the tactics of playing in the aircraft, the features of using aircraft in a team and advice on tactics. Refrain from creating a "guide" - do not impose a single point of view, but instead, give the reader food for thought. Examine the most dangerous enemies and give recommendations on fighting them. If necessary, note the specifics of the game in different modes (AB, RB, SB).

Pros and cons


  • Extremely powerful weaponry
  • Can carry both cannon pods and RB24 missiles, or Rb05A missiles and RB24 missiles at the same time
  • Has an attacker airspawn
  • Decent survivability, has two pilots and can take damage fairly well


  • Fairly poor acceleration
  • Does not turn very well
  • No armour and exposed pilots
  • No integrated offensive armament, requiring gunpods


Describe the history of the creation and combat usage of the aircraft in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to reference text and sources by using <ref></ref>, as well as adding them at the end of the article with <references />. This section may also include the vehicle's dev blog entry (if applicable) and the in-game encyclopedia description (under === In-game description ===, also if applicable).
