    That'll be this puppy then....

    Very impressive bit of kit...drop the undercart and tip over into a steep dive !. A novel solution indeed.

    Welcome to the family Conrad

    Was the engine the STW C-3 ”Swedish Twin Wasp” ? This was a Swedish copy, built without license (ie. stolen), of the Pratt Whitney Twin Wasp. The same engine was used in J22.
    J 22 - FFVS J 22

    you are right to 50 %

    yes, the engine was whitout license

    no, the saab 17 was equiped with swedish made headers
    that had a increase angle on the valves that gave the plane a slightly lower
    rev. celling, but increased the climbing rate from 9 mps / 27 fps to 10 mps / 30 fps

    I married into the Esto Tribe - your cousins, Timppa :).

    Conrad - like so much good Swedish engineering, that dive bomber is really ingenious. Rugged like a Stuka (without the spats to clog up with Russian mud) and streamlined when flying to and from target. Very impressive.

    the only sad thing about the saab 17 is that during the time period the "market" was overflooded whit larger plane makers.

    This is the Saab that has always fascinated me ... love to see any existing 'operational' shots.

    I think the comparison with the Spit isn't quite appropriate .... considering the two were developed in different eras - but I like the Saab, and I would just like to see some pictures of it operating with the Swedish Airforce. :)
