Czech Air Force,JAS 39 Gripen at Nato Tiger meet 2011,Cambrai,France.
The Czech Air Force operate the Gripen; currently leasing 14 Swedish Air Force aircraft, with the option of eventually acquiring them. Two of the aircraft are two-seaters. The Czech Air Force was the first Gripen operator within NATO,( the second one Hungary). One of the design modifications required in order to make it NATO compatible was the ability to undertake aerial refuelling. The Gripen refuelling trials was the first time a NATO tanker had refuelled a Swedish fighter.
