Other- Hose drogue refueling is slow. An equal number of F-16s would spend less time "on the tanker"

Hi Ola, any reference to the above mentioned?

I also notised that the Gripen always came back first from a mission, some F-16 came 30 min.later, with the same t/o time....

Also don't give the Norvegians too hard a time that was F-16A's the norwegian politicians have seriously neglected the Air defence role of the Norwegian Airforce (in the 80's the F-16's only carried sidewinders). I would be more concerned about Finland with their new F18's.
