The Euro Fighter Typhoon was designed as a new generation high performance multi-role fighter aircraft. By early 2013, more than 350 Eurofighters had been delivered. Due to the large proportion of carbon fibre components and other advanced materials, the Eurofighter - in the Royal Air Force often simply referred to as the Typhoon - is very light and has excellent stealth characteristics. The two-seat versions have the same combat capabilities as the single-seaters and were initially used for training purposes, until special squadron s were established for air-to-ground missions. With a top speed of in excess of Mach 2.0 the Euro Fighter dominates both long and short range air-to-air combat as well as air-to-ground missions. For an enemy, the aircraft is difficult to locate due to its low radar signature and the use of non-metallic materials. The strength of this weapon system is based on a balanced combination of properties such as extreme agility due to its aerodynamic design and high performance engines, weapons, sensors, automated data management and low radar signature. The Euro Fighter impresses with its extreme manoeuvrability. It is designed primarily as an air superiority fighter for airspace protection and is equipped for this role with a mixed armament of powerful short and medium range air-to-air missiles. For advanced air-to-ground missions, the Euro Fighter carries a large load of weapons on functionally adapted weapons stations. The Euro Fighter not only combines innovative and advanced technologies, but is also an International Program of great political and economic importance. A Weapons System Officer supports the pilot during missions in the two-seat fighter-bomber role. This system is already being practised in the RAF and trained for in the German Air Force.
