Fifth generation multi-role fighter-bomber. The Eurofighter Typhoon (EF2000) was conceived from a pan-European consortium, similar to the one which produced the Panavia Tornado. Germany, Italy, Spain and United Kingdom are the prime developers of the EF2000, with leaving at an early stage to develop what became the Rafale. Advanced digital systems and a glass cockpit provide the pilot with a cutting edge work environment. Super-cruise technology in the twin EJ200 turbofans allows the Typhoon to fight at speeds unavailable to other designs. In-flight refueling give the EF2000 a near limit-less range and a towed RADAR decoy can hide the Typhoon on the electronic battlefield. The British F2 variant of the Eurofighter is an air defense variant (Tranche 1), incapable of deploying air-to-ground weapons. The closest match to the Eurofighter Typhoon, in the air today is the Lockheed-Martin F-22A Raptor.
