Phase 2 Enhancement (P2E) will bring a range of new, long-range capabilities to the Eurofighter Typhoon.
Industry development flight testing for the P2E programme was completed in 2017, ahead of testing and evaluation with the Royal Air Force.
P2E will bring a range of new, long-range capabilities to the aircraft including:
- A deep attack capability enabling stand-off targeting of high value assets through the integration of the Storm Shadow Air-to -Surface cruise missile.
- A Beyond Visual Range capability through integration of the Meteor Beyond Visual Range Air-to-Air missile, providing enhanced capability against a variety of targets such as agile fast jets, Unmanned Air Vehicles and cruise missiles.
- In April 2017, successful development testing of Meteor missiles from Typhoon aircraft was completed, leading to an Operational evaluation with the UK Royal Air Force.
