The same undercarriage leg seen from the inside. The bicycle arrangement of the main wheels is unique for the Viggen and has been used to fit the undercarriage into Viggen's thin wing when retracted.

Consequently, the wheel well is really small. This is the view of the internal structure and plumbing of the port wheel well looking forward. The inner face of the inner undercarriage cover can be seen in the bottom of this picture.
