    PARIS/HALLBERGMOOS, Germany: The Eurofighter Typhoon presence at the Paris Le Bourget Air Show 2005 is bigger and better than ever before, with this world-class next generation combat aircraft prominent both in the air and on the ground.

    A Eurofighter Typhoon aircraft will feature at the Show with consortium partner Alenia, in combination with the skilled airmanship of Italian Air Force pilots, providing the Show-stopping air display. An Italian Air Force series production aircraft will also be situated on the static display area for viewing throughout the Show.

    The Eurofighter pavilion houses a presentation area that demonstrates the aircraft’s capability and pivotal role in a network-centric battle environment. This theme will be further emphasised with a new and exciting audio/visual presentation scheduled to run concurrently throughout the week for welcome visitors. A full scale replica with a comprehensive weapon display, and a cockpit simulator, will demonstrate the weapon system’s outstanding capabilities.

    Eurofighter partner EADS will present a full scale replica of the aircraft supported by an interactive display.

    Following the successful completion of Tranche 2 negotiations at the end of last year the four-nation Eurofighter programme is now entering the most exciting and dynamic period of its life so far.

    All 148 Tranche 1 aircraft are in final or advanced stages of production, which will ensure a sustained delivery rate to the customer throughout 2005. In April, the deployment of IS002 from Alenia’s final assembly facilities in Torino to 4° Stormo “Amadeo d’Aosta” at Grosseto, Italy, meant that all four partner air forces now operate series production single-seaters with Batch 2 standard.

    These aircraft have PSP2 Capability (Production System Package) with Initial Defensive Aids Subsystem (DASS), Multifunctional Information and Distribution System (MIDS), Initial Direct Voice Input (DVI) and Sensor Fusion.

    nice to finally see it in service...

    could those with more specialist knowledge than i provide an overview of its capabilities and an idea as to where it fits in the world view of things?

    could they also give an appraisal of british air warfare capability with the inclusion of AWACS and Tankers etc ?

    before criticizing someone, walk a mile in their shoes.................... then when you do criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.
