The Saab 36 , also Project 1300 and later the military designation A-36 , is a supersonic bomber designed by Saab during the 1950s, as part of the Swedish nuclear weapons program.

Saab did during the years 1952-1957 a feasibility study on a deltavingat supersonic bomber with nuclear capability . The design of delta wings came from the almost completed the Saab 35 Draken . The plane could carry atomic bombs of up to 800 kg when they had been first produced as part of the Swedish nuclear weapons program. The range of A 36 was estimated at 410 km and was thus sufficient for bombing of targets in the Baltic states which belong to the Soviet Union. 1957, it was determined that all resources would also be invested in the new fighter aircraft Saab 37 Viggen, also as part of Sweden's modern strategic aerial force.

The engine would be the British Bristol Olympus which include sat in the Avro Vulcan and Concorde.

Sweden's first true supercarrier, the Swedish aircraft carrier HSwMS Östergötland, was the first aircraft carrier that could carry Saab 36 and up to twenty-one Saab 36s, with nuclear capability on the water.
