Meteor ..... il 'debuttante' .....
UK Royal Air Force Eurofighter Typhoons have begun flying quick reaction alert (QRA) sorties armed with MBDA Meteor beyond-visual-range air-to-air missiles, the Ministry of Defence confirms.
A first QRA mission with the new weapon was conducted from RAF Lossiemouth in Scotland on 10 December, the MoD says.
"The introduction of Meteor brings a new and innovative long-range capability, and further enhances Typhoon's already potent arsenal," it notes (*).

Kuwait e Qatar riceveranno i Tifoni più avanzati sino ad ora .....
For most of the life of the Eurofighter Typhoon program, the integration of new capabilities on the aircraft has been driven by the requirements of the original four partner nations, and export aircraft have been based on the four-nation standard.
However, for the first time, the aircraft that are being built for delivery to Kuwait and Qatar from late 2019/early 2020 will have sensors and weapons that are not in service with the partner nation air forces.
In some cases, these new systems will provide capabilities that are more advanced than those of RAF, Luftwaffe, AMI, and Ejército del Aire Typhoons.

Due Tifoni spagnoli in Francia per dare la caccia al nEUROn .....
Spanish Air Force Eurofighter Typhoon fighter jets and supporting personnel recently arrived in France to take part in evaluating the stealthy qualities of the Dassault nEUROn unmanned combat air vehicle, or UCAV.
This comes as the Spanish are considering buying more of the fighters and are looking to join the French and Germans in the development of a new stealth fighter, as well as advanced unmanned combat aircraft.
Spain’s Ministry of Defense announced the deployment in a press release on Dec. 28, 2018.
The Spanish contingent consisted of two Typhoons, along with pilots and maintenance personnel, from Ala 11, or 11th Wing, which is based at Morón Air Base.
The jets will operate from the French Air Force’s Istres-Le Tubé Air Base, which serves, in part, as a major French military aviation test facility, for the duration of their visit.

Evoluzione a lungo termine ... per chi ci starà ...
The long-serving Eurofighter Typhoon could soon see additional enhancements as part of a Long Term Evolution (LTE) effort, which aims to boost the platform’s capabilities until next-generation assets – such as the Franco-German New Generation Fighter revealed earlier this week – are brought into service.
At the show, Eurofighter, Eurojet Turbo and the NATO Eurofighter and Tornado Management Agency (NETMA), announced the signing of study contracts worth €53.7 million ($60.1 million) that will support the future development of the Typhoon platform.

Germany's air force has disclosed further details about the fatal collision between two Eurofighter combat aircraft that took place near Rostock on 24 June.
The pair were part of a formation of three single-seat Eurofighters practising an air combat mission at an altitude above 9,800ft, the Luftwaffe says.
During these exercises, two fighters intercept an opponent – represented by a third aircraft – and try to get into a position to strike.
The Luftwaffe says aircraft constantly change positions in a confined space at high speed during these exercises, and operate the mission as a visual flight.

La RAF sta per ricevere il suo ultimo Eurofighter Typhoon ... mentre si esplora la possibilità di ulteriori future esportazioni ...
BAE Systems is close to delivering its final Eurofighter Typhoon for the UK Royal Air Force (RAF), as it eyes fresh export opportunities to extend production of the multi-role type beyond 2024.
Due to be handed over later this year, the RAF’s final Tranche 3-standard Typhoon made its second flight from the company’s Warton final assembly site in Lancashire on 5 August, and is now undergoing remaining equipment installation and trials, says Andy Flynn, Eurofighter and Centurion capability director at BAE Systems Air.
Cirium’s Fleets Analyzer records the RAF as having a current active fleet of 116 Typhoons, the oldest of which are 14 years old.
Under current plans, the type should remain in UK service until 2040, operating alongside its short take-off and vertical landing Lockheed Martin F-35Bs.

Radar AESA per i Tifoni tedeschi ... Hensoldt ottiene il contratto ...
Sensor systems supplier HENSOLDT has welcomed today's decision by the German Bundestag to develop the new AESA (= Active Electronic Scanning Array) radar for the entire German Eurofighter fleet as a positive signal for Germany as a technology base and for successful European cooperation in the defence sector.
"With this decision, Germany is taking on a pioneering role in the field of key technology for the Eurofighter for the first time," said HENSOLDT CEO Thomas Müller.
"This will create high-tech jobs in Germany and give the Bundeswehr the equipment it needs to respond to new threats. In addition, it is a signal for Europe that Germany is investing in a technology that is of crucial importance for European defence cooperation".

Germany picks Hensoldt for Eurofighter AESA radar integration ...

By Craig Hoyle - 18 June 2020

Berlin has approved a contract for sensor house Hensoldt to complete development, production and integration work on an active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar for its air force fleet of Eurofighter combat aircraft.
“With this decision, Germany is taking on a pioneering role in the field of key technology for the Eurofighter for the first time,” says Hensoldt chief executive Thomas Mueller.
Announced by the German government’s budget committee on 17 June, the deal for Mk1 AESA sensors is worth more than €1.5 billion ($1.7 billion) to Hensoldt.
“In contrast to the development of the radar to date in a consortium under British leadership”, the company notes that it will assume full design authority for the system.
“This will create high-tech jobs in Germany and give the Bundeswehr the equipment it needs to respond to new threats,” Mueller says.
”In addition, it is a signal for Europe that Germany is investing in a technology that is of crucial importance for European defence cooperation.”
Hensoldt expects the business to create another 400 jobs at its Ulm site in Bavaria.
Meanwhile, Airbus Defence & Space will be responsible for equipment design supporting the installation.
Speaking the day before the confirmation, Airbus Defence & Space chief executive Dirk Hoke hinted at the step.
“On the German side, we see strong support to accelerate the project of the electronic radar for Eurofighter,” he said during a lecture webcast by the Royal Aeronautical Society.
Hoke also hopes that Berlin will place a Project Quadriga contract before year-end to supply the Luftwaffe with another 38 of the aircraft.
Germany’s commitment makes it the first of the four core Eurofighter partner nations – also including Italy, Spain and the UK – to fund AESA production and integration for its fleet.
Export customers Kuwait and Qatar are also acquiring AESA technology, with their Typhoons to have Captor-E sensors developed by the Leonardo UK-led Euroradar consortium.
The UK, meanwhile, continues to work on a development of Captor-E for future integration with some of the Royal Air Force’s Typhoons.

Austria is to retain its Eurofighter combat aircraft in service at the same time as retiring its Saab 105 jet trainers, the country’s defence minister announced.
Defence Minister Klaudia Tanner said on 6 July that the Austrian Air Force’s (Osterreichische Luftstreitkrafte) 15 Tranche 1 Eurofighters will remain until at least as long as the current contract with Airbus runs, while its 12-remaining Saab 105OEs will be withdrawn from 2021 as pilot training moves overseas.

Eurofighter Typhoon ... alla luce dell'attuale 'rinascita' ... quali prospettive per il futuro?
The Eurofighter’s recent renaissance and future evolution plans are a positive step for Europe’s ambitions to build future combat aircraft, but fast decision-making by the partner nations is needed, says the managing director of BAE Systems’ air business Chris Boardman.
The European fighter, jointly developed by Germany, Italy, Spain and the UK, is enjoying something of a renaissance - with orders from Kuwait and Qatar as well as the potential of top-up buys from Germany and Spain that could push production of the fighter out to the mid-2020s and later.
But finalizing how the aircraft should evolve is still the subject of extensive debate.
“The bit we are trying to get to a conclusion is the Long-Term Evolution [LTE] of Typhoon,” Boardman tells Aviation Week.

Indonesia expresses interest in used Austrian Eurofighters ...

By Greg Waldron - 21 July 2020 ...

Indonesia appears to be interested in 15 Eurofighters that are now part of the Austrian air force inventory.
Austria’s Die Presse (*) reported on 18 July that Austrian defence minister Klaudia Tanner had received a letter from her Indonesian counterpart Prabowo Subianto expressing interest in the 15 aircraft.
Copies purported to be of the letter soon emerged on social media.
In it, Subianto writes that to help modernise the Indonesian air force he would like to enter “official deliberations” to buy all 15 examples.
“I am fully informed concerning the Eurofighter topic and the impact it had until today in Austria, and I am entirely aware of the sensitivity of that matter,” he adds.
“Nonetheless, I am sure that my proposal offers a promising change for both sides.”
Munich’s deal for 15 Eurofighters was mired in controversy.
In February 2018, Airbus agreed to pay a $99.5 million fine to conclude a six-year-old investigation by the Munich Public Prosecutor into allegations of bribery involving the 2003 sale of the Typhoons.
The settlement allowed Airbus to resolve the investigation with no finding that the company had bribed Austrian officials directly or through intermediaries to select the Eurofighter over other bidders.
In 2017, Munich said it would retire its of fleet Tranche 1 jets in 2020 amid a row with the four-nation consortium over the cost and capability of its aircraft.
Cirium fleets data lists all 15 jets as still being in service, with an average age of 13.5 years.
For several years Jakarta has been shopping around for new fighters.
In November 2019, Indonesian state news agency Antara quoted the air force chief of staff Marshal Yuyu Sutisna as saying that two squadrons of Lockheed Martin F-16Vs would be obtained, and that a long delayed deal to buy Sukhoi Su-35s would go through.
In August 2017, Jakarta said it would buy 11 Su-35s for $1.14 billion; a cash and barter deal that would likely include a mix of local farm products such as palm oil and coffee.
However, concerns about USA’s CAATSA (Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act) legislation against Russia, Iran, and North Korea appear to have made Jakarta think twice about buying Russian aircraft.
Jakarta is also junior partner in the Korea Aerospace Industries KF-X fighter programme, although it continues to squabble with Seoul about costs related to the type’s development.
News of Jakarta’s interest in used Eurofighters comes two weeks after a surprise announcement by the US government that Jakarta had been cleared to buy eight Bell Boeing MV-22 Block C Osprey tiltrotors in a deal valued at $2 billion.
