Typhoon gives air forces the capability to effectively deliver a full spectrum of air operations - from air policing and peace support, through to high intensity conflict, thanks to its inherent flexibility and adaptability. The aircraft's swing-role capability provides the widest possible range of air-to-air and air-to-surface mission profiles.Together with our partners we have developed an aircraft that boasts unrivalled combat capability, impressive situational awareness, high survivability and the most advanced array of integrated sensors. In short, Typhoon is a total solution for any modern air force.
Without question one of the Typhoon's defining qualities is its versatility
Typhoon is a multi-role aircraft which can switch easily between being a fighter aircraft as well as a bomber aircraft. Thus making it a true swing-role aircraft.
Paveway™IV is the next generation guided weapon selected by the UK Ministry of Defence for the Precision Guided Bomb (PGB) programme.
Typhoon in flight
In an environment where time sensitive targeting remains fundamental to success, Paveway™IV provides the ultimate in operational flexibility. The combat proven dual-mode guidance, together with height of burst and penetrating capability in one weapon system, enable the decision of target engagement to be made right up to the point of release. It has been successfully integrated onto the Harrier GR9/9A and Tornado GR4 and under contract is being integrated onto Typhoon and Joint Combat Aircraft. It expands the boundaries of traditional laser guided weapons and also exceeds the range of rival GPS guided bombs. The enhanced launch zone increases both weapon effectiveness and platform survivability.
The Typhoon has been developed by four of the world's leading aerospace companies.
How to build a Typhoon - workshare
The partner companies involved include ourselves, CASSIDIAN (Germany), Alenia Finmeccanica of Italy and CASSIDIAN (Spain). Each of the European Partner Companies has responsibility for different elements of the aircraft build with production work-shares corresponding to the number of aircraft ordered by each nation.The partnership operates through Eurofighter GmbH, the company set up to manage the development and production of the Typhoon.
Typhoon on the flight line
Getting the crews off the ground at such short notice called for a massive effort, not least from the men and women on our teams who support the RAF and UK MOD on a daily basis. But that’s what supporting Typhoon is all about.

The Eurofighter Typhoon’s latest weapon – isn’t something slung under the wing – but a system with ‘brains’ that sits on the pilot’s head.
New Night Vision Goggles are being trialed by Typhoon pilots at our Warton site.
Night Vision Goggles
Adding to the very latest technologies that the Helmet Mounted Symbology System offers along with the night compatible cockpit, the FENN NG2000Ti goggles will provide pilots with x-ray like vision right through the night.
Night Vision Goggle trials are ongoing and demonstrate the continued efforts to integrate the latest technologies into the Typhoon system
Nat Makepeace, Typhoon project pilot tells us about his experience from the recent night trials.
