The Eurofighter Typhoon is a twin-engine, canard-delta wing, multirole fighter. The Typhoon was designed by a consortium of three companies, EADS, Alenia Aeronautica and BAE Systems, working through a holding company, Eurofighter GmbH, which was formed in 1986. The project is managed by the NATO Eurofighter and Tornado Management Agency, which acts as the prime customer. Eurofighter Typhoon is being produced serially by the EADS, Alenia Aeronautica, and BAE Systems consortium. The aircraft is being procured under separate contracts, named tranches, each for aircraft with generally improved capabilities. The Typhoon has entered service with the Austrian Air Force, the Italian Air Force, the German Air Force, the British Royal Air Force, the Spanish Air Force, and the Royal Saudi Air Force.
Battlefield 2: Euro ForceEdit
The Eurofighter Typhoon in Battlefield 2: Euro Force is one of the two fixed-wing aircraft operated by the European Union, the other being the F-15E. Its MEC counterpart is the MiG-29; the Eurofighter has 600 ammo capacity in its cannon whereas the MiG-29 has 300.
Like all fighters, the Eurofighter Typhoons's armament composes of six heat-seeking air-to-air missiles, two unguided bombs, and a 30mm automatic cannon. However, the Eurofighter Typhoon has an advantage compared to MEC MiG-29, as its cannon only has 300 rounds while the Eurofighters have 600.
It is not recommended to use the Eurofighter for bombing purposes, as its two bomb payload has a small area of effect. When used for bombing, it should only be used for small areas, or when destroying enemy installations. The Eurofighter, like all fighters, is to be primarily used for taking out other fighters and helicopters, as its armament is designed for such task.
