Although the Swedish armed forced have so far not received a national mandate to participate in the enforcement of U.N. Resolution 1973 to enforce a no-fly zone over Libya, the country's air force is drawing up contingency plans for potential use of the JAS-39 Gripen fighter.It would be Sweden's first combat deployment of the strike fighter.Swedish military planners say six to eight Gripens and their crews could be contributed if the green light for such an operation is given. The Gripens are currently on alert as part of the Nordic Battlegroup, but Swedish military officials say a deployment of the fighter would likely take place under the national umbrella, rather than the NBG.
