Details

Soon after the introduction of the jet J-21R fighters Swedish Air Force realized that due to its low range, low Mach number airframe and inferior flight characteristics above 6,000 m, J-21R is not suitable for interceptor role. Since the new aircraft featured excellent flight characteristics in low altitudes, with high stability and maneuverability just above the surface it was decided to change it assignment to Attack wings. The aircraft were handed over to attack wing F7 and re-designated to A-21R. Later on, even F17 wing received these aircraft intended for training on the new SAAB 32 Lansen. A-21R served with Swedish Air Force until 1954. For ground attacks A-21Rs were equipped with various armaments. The machine gun pod was already included in J-21R kit (SH72207). Further armament, this time mainly rockets are included in the new sprue that was produced from metal mould. This new sprue contains two types of rockets with racks and 250 kg bomb. The bomb was carried by older J-21A-3 fighters that were equipped with bomb sights. The kit contains three sprues with grey plastic parts, opened injected canopy, resin and photo-etched parts. Decals included offer three machines from F7 wing and one from F17 wing. Markings of these machines comprise numbers on the noses and letters on the tailplanes all for Swedish Air Force machines.
