The Gripen E is an enhanced variant of the Gripen C. It made its debut in Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown.


The Gripen E saw sporadic usage during the Lighthouse War, mainly by the Erusean Air Force. Several were stationed at an airbase in Roca Roja; they took off to intercept Spare Squadron during their attack on the base.[1] One month later, Erusean Gripen Es, Mirage 2000-5s and MiG-31Bs were sent to intercept Colonel McKinsey's transport as it flew towards Bulgurdarest. Among the Gripen pilots was Ken Warren, callsign "Louveteau".[2] The Gripen later saw use by the Erusean Air Force to defend Farbanti during Osea's Operation Giant's Step[3] and by the reestablished Voslagian Air Force during their defense of Shilage Castle.[4]
