Eurofighter Typhoon

The Eurofighter Typhoon is the world's most modern Swing-Role Fighter. Once conceived as a multi-national programme to modernize the European Air Forces, the Eurofighter Typhoon has in the meantime been sold to 4 additional customers and thus doubled the number of its original user nations. It is powered by two EJ200 Engines that give the Eurofighter Typhoon its impressive Thrust-to-Weight Ratio and maneuverability. The core of this state of the art weapon system is its Identification Capability and Sensor Fusion, based on the CAPTOR-E AESA Radar and the PIRATE FLIR sensor while being protected by the PRAETORIAN Electronic Defensive Aid Sub System (DASS). No other Fighter aircraft has integrated a comparably high number of European and US Weapons.

Air Superiority

Air Superiority

In the Air Superiority Mission the Eurofighter Typhoon will typically be equipped with Air-to-Air Missiles for the BVR and short range combat. It is the combination of Thrust, Maneuverability, modern Sensors and Data Fusion that makes the Eurofighter Typhoon the superior air warfare platform.

Air Interdiction

Air Interdiction

In this role the Eurofighter Typhoon is configured for ground attacks and even though it is equipped with a targeting pod and up to 7 ground attack weapons, it carries still 3 BVR and 2 SR missiles.

Close Air Support

Close Air Support

The recent integration contract for the Brimstone has strengthened the CAS capabilities of the Eurofighter Typhoon since it can now engage in combat with a reduced risk of collateral damages of non-combatant or friendly forces.

Swing Role

Swing Role

The Eurofighter Typhoon can simply switch from Air-to-Air into the Air-to-Ground role and back within the same mission. Multiple configurations of Air-to-Air and Ground Attack payloads can be put under 13 under wing and fuselage stations which enables a highly flexible and mission specific configuration.

The Eurofighter is the world’s most advanced new generation multi-role/swing-role combat aircraft available on the market. It represents the peak of British, German, Italian and Spanish collaborative technology in avionics, aerodynamics, materials, manufacturing techniques and engines. Eurofighter Typhoon is Europe’s largest military collaborative programme.

Eurofighter Typhoon is the only fighter to offer wide-ranging operational capabilities whilst at the same time delivering unparalleled fleet effectiveness.

Eurofighter Captor-E radar

The Captor-E Radar of the Eurofighter Typhoon is currently the only radar on a fighter aircraft that combines a 2-axis repositioner with an active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar. This leads to an increase of the detection angle to 150 Degrees, while existing radars are tied to a 120 Degrees angle.
