Eurofighter Typhoon's Capability | The aircraft is built with advanced composite materials | The Eurofighter Typhoon is the world’s most powerful and reliable swing-role combat aircraft. F-22 Raptor Stealth Tactical Fighter vs Eurofighter Typhoon Air Superiority Fighter: WHO WOULD WIN? Eurofighter Typhoon delivers an enviable level of flexibility and efficiency. Only Eurofighter Typhoon possesses both adequate weapon availability (up to 6 bo-mbs whilst also carrying six missiles, a cannon and a targeting pod) and sufficient processing power to simultaneously support missile in-flight updates and bom-b in-flight targeting. True swing-role capability. Aircraft diagram The aircraft is designed to be upgraded and extended in order to provide decades of effective use. Combining a proven, agile airframe built from stealth materials with the latest sensor, control and weapons systems delivers optimum combat capability – both beyond visual range (BVR) and in close combat. The weapons systems, navigation technologies and control infrastructure are all designed to be upgraded, to continue to enhance the overall performance of the aircraft. THE AIRFRAME Plane Aircraft The aircraft is built with advanced composite materials to deliver a low radar profile and strong airframe. Only 15% of the aircraft’s surface is metal, delivering stealth operation and protection from radar-based systems. Pilots were included in the design from the earliest stages to develop a deliberately unstable airframe that can still be flown effectively. This delivers both superior manoeuvrability at subsonic speeds and efficient supersonic capability to support the widest range of combat scenarios. THE MATERIALS Strong, lightweight composite materials were key to the design of Eurofighter Typhoon to give it deliberate instability. Using them means the weight of the airframe is 30% less than for traditional materials, boosting range and performance as well as reducing the radar signature. Subscribe Now :
