About the German Air Force Typhoon Aircraft
The Eurofighter Typhoon is a twin-engine canard-delta wing multi-role aircraft. Designed and built by a consortium of three seperate partner companies; Alenia Aeronautica, BAE Systems, and EADS. In 1986, Eurofighter GmbH was formed. Eurofighter Typhoon was initially developed as a replacement for Tornado intended to be the next generation multi-role air dominance fighter meeting the challenges and threats air forces will face in the 21st Century. As of 2009, Eurofighter Typhoon is in service with the British Royal Air Force, the German Luftwaffe, the Italian Aeronautica Militare, the Spanish Air Force and the Austrian Air Force.
The Eurofighter is a single-seat, twin-engine, agile combat aircraft used in air-to-air, air-to-ground and tactical reconnaissance roles. It is intentionally aerodynamically unstable, which gives it its high levels of agility-but this means the Typhoon is controlled by a computerized "fly by wire" system instead of by its pilot. The Eurofighter's first rate performance is matched by excellent all round vision and by sophisticated attack, identification and defense systems and stealth technology.
