This artwork was shown in FLIGHT 18 - 24 September 1996 (page 4), titled "This is one early Saab configuration never likely to see the light of day".

Did it get a model number?

Re: Saab LAA-2 6702

High speed transport to maintain external air routes/communication links in times of heightened tensions or crisis/war?

We have it here as well.

No idea of the role, but the caption does say "airliner" in Swedish. Judging by the door under the canard, it's not a small plane either. The cockpit seems a bit out of scale, though.

Interesting how the Saab 1084 starts as a "DC-3 replacement" then evolved into an "inflated Skyvan" and then resembled the successful LET 410.
Does the round fuselage cross-section imply a pressurized cabin?

During the 1950s and 1960s dozens of factories attempted "DC-3 replacements" but few could compete with the low cost of military surplus airframes and even fewer sold significant numbers.

Curiosity about the "inflated Skyvan" makes us wonder about the internal dimensions of the cabin, location of cargo doors and why it has dihedral in the horizontal tail.
Shorts sold significant numbers of Skyvans, Skyliners and Sherpas. Today many still haul odd-shaped cargo and train military paratroopers because they can operate for a fraction of the cost of a C-130. As a side note, when American Special Forces needed to resupply outposts near the Afghan-Pakistan border, they bought a couple of PZL Skytrucks, which look like this SAAB 1084.

How big was the market for SAAB 1084?
Would it have sold better than Skyvan, CASA 212, PZL Skytruck, etc.?

Hi Riggerrob,

I think this SAAB-1084 couldn't achieve a successful such as CASA-212 or the same
class of airplanes fulfilled for replacing DC-3.

That has to be a joke. It's a Gripen wing and tail mated to a Saab 340 or Saab 2000 forward fuselage.
