The Tunnan never had a propellor variant and was jet powered fighter right from the start. I think you meant the Lansen, which had both propellor(early) and jet powered variants.

See post #71. It is the Saab J21R that served first with a pusher prop and then with a turbo jet.

Yes, Sir that is correct.
I am just saying that the Tunnan(J-29) never had a propellor driven variant. It was from the beginning itself a jet powered aircraft. The Tunnan, as many of you must be aware, provided fighter escort to IAF Canberra bombers (and other UN transports) during their deployment to Congo as a part of ONUC (French: Op閞ation des Nations Unies au Congo) - the UN air arm from 1961-63 against Katangan rebels. The Katangan rebels even had a small air force, whose aircraft were flown by Belgian mercenaries.

The IAF Canberras had ONU painted on the rear fuselage during their Congo deployment and could only use thier ventral gunpacks( usage of rockets and bombs were prohibited):

As for the J-21, I made the mistake of referring to the J-21 as the Lansen, for which I apologize. It was the Saab J-32 that was called the Lansen.

I was referring to the post before yours by@Sutripta.
I wish we had gone for the Tunnan in the 1950s maybe even license assembly. It was, in my opinion the best of the first generation jet fighters
