~ 700hp Turbo Saab, 312kmh (194mph)
Extreme turbo Saab + 300 kmh
Many viewers have misunderstood this video, so I explain it a little:
-Speed at finish line (1mile/1609m) is measured. Time is not measured.
-First Saab does 1st and 2nd gear with ~half throttle. Second Saab has
limited Boost for 1st and 2nd gear.
- three extra seconds between 0-100kmh typically means ~30meters wasted.
But three extra seconds used in speeds close to 300kmh, means almost
Here is equally powerful RWD cars (if not even more HP's) These RWD's are a
lot faster between 0-150kmh, but
these Saabs are faster from
150kmh-300kmh. You get the point when you compare speeds at finish line.
-A Saab 9-5 driver pushes a little too much throttle @3rd gear and looses
traction. He lifts a throttle and pushes it back, but too much again and
then he gears up 4th, a bit earlier than planned. (optimal is@205kmh).
Earlier that summer I broke one gearbox when pushing too hard on 3rd gear.
With new gearbox and at later event, I drove very gently on first three
gears to avoid breaking it again. I pushed WOT for the first time on 4th
gear @ 190kmh. You can hear it clearly on following video. Engine tone
changes totally around 200kmh. Incar video is from 299kmh pull (at 1 mile
race) Something happened to camera during the run. So I didn't get any
incar video from a 305kmh pull. To see that run from the start line, please
see my other videos.
Here is incar video until camera dies. Start is @1min.

SUPER DEADLY Swedish Navy SAAB RBS15 MK3 Anti Ship Missile
The RBS-15 (Robotsystem 15) is a long-range fire-and-forget
surface-to-surface and air-to-surface, anti-ship missile. The later version
Mk. III has the ability to attack land targets as well. The missile was
developed by the Swedish company Saab Bofors Dynamics.
The Swedish Navy was pioneering anti-ship missiles with the Halland Class
of destroyers using the RB08 missile since the early 1960s. Owing to the
Defence decision of 1958 the main effect for the navy was a restructuring
into a lighter force consisting of FAC vessels and a halt to destroyer
procurement. This posed a problem as the existing RB08 missile required
launch rails and a missile magazine in the destroyers, taking up space that
was simply not there on smaller ships. Adding to the problems, each missile
had to be individually prepared for launch and only two missiles could be
on the launch rails at the same time. In comparison, the STYX missile used
by the Soviet Union (which was the expected adversary) stored the missiles
in individual containers on deck which left the missiles immediately
available for launch. Tests were carried out on Plejad class FACs with a
single bow mounted RB08 in the late 1960s, but these tests came to nothing.
Next attempt by SAAB to take an order for anti-ship missiles to equip the
Norrköping class FACs of the Swedish navy was first presented in 1978 as
under the project name "RB 04 turbo" a
development of the air force RB 04E missile with a turbofan engine changed wing configurations and
start rockets to take off from land. The initial proposal was rejected as
inferior to the Harpoon. The project under the leadership of Hans Ahlinder
then worked out a proposal for a missile with greater capabilities and
superior performance to the Harpoon. As a way to indicate that it was a new
weapon the project name was changed from "RB 04 turbo" to "RBS-15"
The first weapon contract was signed in 1979, at the last minute the
Swedish government had opted not to buy the Harpoon anti-ship missile and
opting for an indigenous design. The first missiles were delivered to the
Navy in June 1984, and the ship version RBS-15 Mk. I was introduced.
The missile had been ordered in 1984 by the Swedish Navy to develop a
coastal defense version of the RBS-15F. The missile was taken into Swedish
Navy service as the Rb 15 by the Swedish Navy and became operational in
1985. The Swedish Air Force received their missiles a couple of years
later. The Mk. I was produced from 1985 to 1990.
Work on a further developed version, the RBS-15 Mk. II, was initiated in
the early 1980s. But it took until 1994, before a development contract was
signed for the upgraded anti-ship missile. The Mk. II has the same range
(70+ km), but the mid-course and terminal guidance system, as well as the
radar and IR signature were upgraded. The Mk. II has been produced since
The development of the RBS-15 Mk. III began in the mid-1990s. Emphasis was
put on increased range (due to larger fuel capacity and new fuel the range
has been increased to some 200 km), improved accuracy (integrated GPS) and
selectable priority targeting, which improved the weapon system's
flexibility. The Mk. III missile will also be produced by Diehl BGT Defence
of Germany for the new class of German stealth corvettes, and is likely to
be later used on other German Navy vessels as well. Finnish truck maker
Sisu produces missile launch trucks for RBS-15. The Mk. III has been in
production since 2004.
The missile was developed from the RB 04 missile that was used by the
Swedish air force. The front of the missile was retained, including the
warhead, but the rear received new wings and a turbofan engine replaced the rocket previously
used. The RBS-15 underwent trials on the missile FAC HMS Piteå from 1983
and became operational with the Swedish Navy in 1985. The Västergötland
class submarines were projected to have 4 vertical missile launch tubes for
RBS-15 missiles in an extended hull but this was canceled due to budget
constraints and it didn't fit the way Swedish submarines operated.
Powered by a French Microturbo TRI-60
engine, with a thrust of 3.73 kN (380 khp/830 lbf). Range 70+ km
An Mk. I adapted for air launch. Entered service in 1989.
RBS-15 Mk. II
Range 70+ km. Designed to be launched from a number of different platforms,
such as land-based launchers, aircraft, and ships.
Mk. II version for Finland. Local designation MTO 85 (Meritorjuntaohjus
RBS-15 Mk. III
 Range 200 km, with land attack capability. There is only a ship
launched version. Production started in 2004. New Oval launch tubes instead
of the old box type.
Both new Mk. IIIs and upgraded Mk. IIs, which have been upgraded to Mk. III
standard. Finnish designation MTO 85M
RBS-15 Mk. IV
Currently being developed. Incorporates dual seekers, has a longer range
and new missile link system.
Abbott Racing 3" Exhaust on Saab 9-3 Viggen
My attempt at recording what an Abbott Racing 3" Exhaust sounds like on a 1999 Saab 9-3 Viggen.
You hear the car start up, then the video switches to a bumper mounted
angle for some real road audio.
It is the full 3" system from the turbo
Poor tools make for a fairly mediocre recording job unfortunately. Shot
using a Sony Cyber-Shot digital camera combined with an Apple iPhone with
suction mount attached to the bumper..... doesn't really make for a good
quality audio recording. The iPhone just cannot handle the brutality :-)
Enjoy... the best I can do for now.
Beautiful Swedish car, SAAB 9-5.
I am really into SAAB cars; I own a 2003 9-3 that I am very fond of. I put
together this video, from different clips, for the new Saab 9-5. I think
the new 9-5 is very stylish in design and sporty in performance. I am
seriously considering buying one and when I do I will be sure to make a
video to share how I feel about Saab's great cars
Swedens Saab Gripen NG JAS 39 fighter jet SHOOTS DOWN a Russian Sukhoi Su-35 in Marketing video
The Saab JAS 39 Gripen (griffin) is a lightweight single-engine multirole
fighter manufactured by the Swedish aerospace company Saab. It was designed
to replace the Saab 35 Draken and 37 Viggen in the Swedish Air Force
(Flygvapnet). The Gripen has a delta wing and canard configuration with
relaxed stability design and fly-by-wire technology. It is powered by the
Volvo-Flygmotor RM12 engine, a derivative of the General Electric F404, and
has a top speed of Mach 2. Later aircraft are equipped for in-flight
refuelling; most of the export aircraft have been designed to be compatible
with NATO interoperability standards.
In 1979, the Swedish government began development studies for an aircraft
capable of fighter, attack and reconnaissance missions to replace the Saab
35 Draken and 37 Viggen. A new design from Saab was selected and developed
as the JAS 39, first flying in 1988. Following two crashes during flight
development and subsequent alterations to the aircraft's flight control
software, the Gripen entered service with the Swedish Air Force in 1997.
Upgraded variants, featuring more advanced avionics and adaptions for
longer mission times, began entering service from 2003 onwards.
The Swedish Air Force (Swedish: Flygvapnet) is the air force branch of the
Swedish Armed Forces.
The Swedish Air Force was created on July 1, 1926 when the aircraft units
of the Army and Navy were merged. Because of the escalating international
tension during the 1930s the Air Force was reorganized and expanded from
four to seven squadrons. When World War II broke out in 1939 further
expansion was initiated and this substantial expansion was not finished
until the end of the war. Although Sweden never entered the war, a large
air force was considered necessary to ward off the threat of invasion and
to resist pressure through military threats from the great powers. By 1945
the Swedish Air Force had over 800 combat-ready aircraft, including 15
