RAF Receives Most Advanced TYPHOON

UK Order Completed, Work Begins on Qatar’s Aircraft

BAE Systems has handed over the most advanced TYPHOON aircraft yet to the Royal Air Force (RAF) as work continues to ensure that TYPHOON remains the operationally-effective backbone for UK combat air power, the company announced on 27 September.

The latest delivery completes the order for the RAF and the company is now gearing up to begin assembly of TYPHOON aircraft for the Qatari Emiri Air Force, with the first due for delivery in 2022.

TYPHOON was designed to continuously evolve and its untapped potential continues to be realised with new investments in radar, communications, data management, weapons and connectivity further strengthening its role in the frontline of securing the skies over the UK […] With production for Qatar ramping up and TYPHOON attracting interest in a number of international campaigns, it is entering the next stage of a technological journey which future-proofs it for decades to come […] Over this time, it will be the platform which will develop and deploy technologies which will become central on a future combat air system, making it the ideal interoperable partner to fly alongside a Future Combat Air System,” commented BAE Systems’ TYPHOON Capability Director, Andy Flynn.
