Spain places order for Eurofighter Typhoons

A major new order by Spain to expand its frontline fleet with 20 new Eurofighter Typhoons underlines the importance of this aircraft’s role as the backbone of European defence. The announcement, which was made at the recent ILA Berlin International Air Show, will see the number of Typhoon aircraft in Europe increase to 545, delivered or on order. BAE Systems leads the overall design, development, manufacture, upgrade and support for Typhoon aircraft in the UK. The company is responsible for manufacturing more than a third of the components for every Spanish aircraft, including the aircraft’s front fuselage and tail, under a contract worth in excess of £500m.
