Draken means kite as well as dragon in Swedish. I guess this is the kite-version ;-)

There is no story about the Draken exceeding Mach 1.3 during climb. However this would have been quite a blow to F-100 :-o
Beeing only three year older was the F-100 the first American 'true Mach 1' and had (only) Mach 1.3 as top speed.
The three year later flying MiG-21 was just able to pass Mach 1 at sea level, wich underlines the dominant capability of the much unknown Swedish cold war interceptor!

#44:
Modern Swedish aircraft have been deliberately designed to be operated on alternative airstrips like public roads and even unpaved ground. This have mostly had an effect on the design of ridgid undercarriage, however the SAAB 37 Viggen incoporates a horizontal hinged rudderplane to accomodate the aircraft under highway bridges for taxiing as well as sheltering!
