Eurofighter Typhoon

Eurofighter representatives have delivered a formal letter of support to Indonesia in conjunction with the procurement of the aircraft and associated technologies.

The letter delivered by the Eurofighter founding countries, Germany, Italy, Spain and the UK, stressed the information already provided and ensured full support of the transfer of technology elements associated with the aircraft.

Eurofighter Typhoon, built by a consortium of Finmeccanica, Airbus Group and BAE Systems, is a delta-wing, beyond visual range (BVR), close air fighter aircraft with surface attack capability.

The acquisition of the aircraft will allow Indonesia to take advantage of the partnership between PT Dirgantara Indonesia and Airbus, Eurofighter stated.

As part of this development, Indonesia’s Ministry of Research, Technology and Higher Education and Eurofighter organised a workshop, exploring the innovative use of fighter jets in the maritime environment.

Eurofighter Industrial Offset head Martin Elbourne said: "Reliable maritime protection is a fundamental requirement for this archipelagic nation.

"Reliable maritime protection is a fundamental requirement for this archipelagic nation."

"Add to that strong indigenous capabilities in the aerospace sector, and Indonesia will truly ‘take off’ as a maritime axis.

"This is an approach supported by Eurofighter in its continuing dialogue with Indonesia."

Eurofighter Typhoon is a foreplane / delta wing aircraft integrating modern avionics and sensors, Defensive Aids Sub System (DASS) and distinct weapons, such as Mauser BK-27 27mm cannon, air-to-air, air-to-surface and anti-ship missiles and precision-guided munitions.

The aircraft’s development is Europe’s largest multinational military collaborative effort managed by the Nato Eurofighter and Tornado Management Agency (NETMA).
