[3][4] The Typhoon was designed originally as an air superiority fighter[5] and is manufactured by a consortium of Airbus, BAE Systems and Leonardo that conducts the majority of the project through a joint holding company, Eurofighter Jagdflugzeug GmbH. It joins squadrons in Grosseto and Gioia del Colle. In 1994, the Chiefs of Air Staff of Germany, Spain, UK and Italy all agreed on their advanced aircraft requirements, with DA1 and DA2 Eurofighter Typhoons making their first test flights that same year. In the event of pilot disorientation, the Flight Control System allows for rapid and automatic recovery by the simple press of a button. [47] The Spanish MoD put the cost of their Typhoon project up to December 2010 at €11.718 billion, up from an original €9.255 billion and implying a system cost for their 73 aircraft of €160 million.

Contents[show] Nation Information Eurofighter Typhoon is a medium sized, mostly developed, and ageing nation with citizens primarily of British ethnicity who follow mixed religions. While canards generally have poor stealth characteristics from side because of corner to hull,[85] the flight control system is designed to maintain the elevon trim and canards at an angle at which they have the smallest RCS. An important step in the development of the DVI occurred in 1987 when Texas Instruments completed the TMS-320-C30, a digital signal-processor, enabling reductions in the size and system complexity required. Using the "war" setting, dry thrust increases by 15% to 69 kN per engine and afterburners by 5% to 95 kN per engine and for a few seconds, up to 102 kN thrust without damaging the engine.

A third area of improvement would be the engine exhaust nozzle which would be upgraded with the installation of a 2-parametric version allowing independent and optimized adjustment of the throat and exit area at all flight conditions, providing fuel burn advantages. It is in service with 7 customers and has been ordered by two more. [237], In 2002, the Republic of Korea Air Force (ROKAF) chose the F-15K Slam Eagle over the Dassault Rafale, Eurofighter Typhoon and Sukhoi Su-35 for its 40 aircraft F-X Phase I fighter competition.

[115], The first flight of a Eurofighter equipped with a "mass model" of the Captor-E occurred in late February 2014, with flight tests of the actual radar beginning in July of that year. In practice the AIS should allow the Eurofighter to identify targets at distances in excess of 150 nmi and acquire and auto-prioritise them at over 100 nmi. In the Typhoon, fusion of all data sources is achieved through the Attack and Identification System, or AIS. Production is divided into three tranches (see table below). The twin-seat variant is not used operationally, but only for training, though it is combat capable. [207], On 14 December 2017, it was announced No. Three units operate the Eurofighter Typhoon in Germany; they are called Tactical Air Wings.
