Is this really the case and how does the Gripens engine really cope in hot conditions?

Any replys would be great!

The JAS 39 EBS has got  a WWC modification that allows the aircraft to operate in varius climates. The RM 12 operates at a higher temperature than the F404 due the higher output thrust. In high temperature climates every jet aircraft require longer runway to get airborne compared to colder climates. Since SAAF didn´t order brakes to the nose wheels i don´t think that take of is any problem i South Africa.
