Commander of Sweden's Air Force, Mats Helgesson, stated that the country's recently developed Saab JAS 39 Gripen E jets were "designed to kill Sukhois" — Russia's top air superiority fighters, Finnish national broadcaster Yle reported. In a bid to further stress the Gripen E's effectiveness, Helgesson concluded that the aircraft have a "black belt" in fighting Russian jets.

They are quick nimble fighters with tons of jamming software that can make them disappear to enemy fighters. SU's are heavy long range interceptor aircraft that loose a lot of speed and altitude in a dog fight. The new Migs on the hand will be very deadly aircraft. A Mig 29 in the right hands will eat a SU in a dogfight but the SU was designed to cover all of Russias vast territory with a lot of long range missiles.
