The collective military requirements of the Partner Nations are the foundation of the Eurofighter Typhoon Weapon System. Eurofighter Typhoon is a highly agile Air Superiority and Air-to-Surface, multi-role/swing-role weapon system, making it the most capable front line fighter available. Swing-role means that one aircraft can perform a number of different roles, all carried out with ease and precision.
Developed by Europe’s leading aerospace companies, Eurofighter Typhoon is now the aircraft of choice for six Nations’ Air Forces - Germany, Italy, Spain, United Kingdom, Austria and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and will fulfil Air Force requirements well into the 21st Century. Aircraft production is ongoing, with 707 aircraft under contract to the six Nations.
