Germany Receives Four Eurofighter Typhoons


The German Air Force has taken delivery of the first four Eurofighter Typhoon aircraft in its Jagdbombergeschwader 31 Boelcke air wing, for using it in air-to-ground operations.

Developed to meet the collective military requirements of the partner nations, the Eurofighter Typhoon is a highly agile air superiority and air-to-surface, multi-role/swing-role weapon system.

The plane is in service with six national air forces including Germany, Italy, Spain, the UK, Austria and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

The swing-role enables the Typhoon aircraft to perform a number of different roles with ease and precision.

The JaboG 31 Boelcke is the first Luftwaffe unit and the third German Air Force Squadron to use the Eurofighter Typhoon aircraft.
