One of the most popular parts of the worldwide aircraft world, the Eurofighter Typhoon has been used the world over and has proved itself to be more than capable of handling itself in a dog fight. It’s a single-seated combat fighter that prides itself on the agility and speed it offers, while still packing a fair punch from every bullet it unloads. It’s used for all forms of combat and even today still ranks as one of the most popular aircraft ever made by military personnel. It’s hugely balanced and has a wide selection of the features you would look for in a trustworthy and effective aircraft.
It’s been used by the Italians, Germans, Spanish, British & Saudi Air Forces among others, and has been used for many years now and it’s expected that even as we approach the 22nd Century it could still be an integral part of airline battles. With more than 630 of these aircraft in the skies at any one time, it’s one of the most powerful and commonly made traditional airfighters that we have.
Capable of incredible damage as well as break-neck speeds, it’s easy to see the why even many years after its initial release why the Eurofighter Typhoon is still held in such high regard the world over. With its incredibly low wing loading capabilities, high thrust/weight ratio and stunning cockpit vision it’s going to be around for quite some time – so why not take one out for a spin in FSX/FS2004?
