- 20mm Submachine Gun
- Great boosting speed.
- The 20mm Submachine Gun boast good ammo capacity and rate of fire.
- No good mid-range weapon. Forcing the pilot to either get in really close or stay at long distance away from the enemy, limiting its performance.
- Weak armor for Generation 3 BattleFrame.
Gripen is mainly a long-range fire support machine, using its Railgun as primary weapon and its SMG for self-defense. Its weak armor is compensated by great boost power, practically the most agile of Generation 3 BattleFrames.
Gripen's SMG tends to be inaccurate at a distance. Thus, you should try to maintain distance from the enemy and snipe them using your Railgun. Stay mobile and avoid getting surrounded.
The ammo capacity on the SMG can be an advantage in destroying incoming missiles.
- The name Gripen is a reference to JAS 39 Gripen, a real life multi-role fighter aircraft.
