Eurofighter Selling Briskly

by Daniel Russ on August 1, 2009



The Eurofighter countries have signed a €9.1 billion contract to build 112 Typhoon fighters under the Tranche 3A program, with a goal to get the second part of the last phase of the program on contract by the end of 2011.

However, Quentin Davies, the U.K. minister for defense equipment and support, signaled London may not participate in Tranche 3B. Industry officials say they are operating on the assumption the 620 umbrella commitment from the U.K., Germany, Italy and Spain still holds, and that anything else is for the governments to work out among themselves.
