The EUROFIGHTER TYPHOON multinational co-operative project of the partner nations Germany, United Kingdom, Italy and Spain is an all-weather capable flying weapon system, optimized for air defense, with special requirements in terms of mission effectiveness, survivability, availability and operational flexibility.

The EUROFIGHTER is a one-seater in Delta-Canard configuration with two engines. Primary weapons are medium-range air-to-air missiles (initially AMRAAM and in future Meteor) and short-range air-to-air missiles (Sidewinder, ASRAAM and IRIS-T).

All partner nations also procured aircraft in two-seater design for crew training.
