Last Typhoon on Final Delivery August 12, 2019

The last Tranche 3 Eurofighter Typhoon, built for its user, has begun testing. In this context, the platform also made the second test flight. 

 

The countdown for the latest Eurofighter Typhoon Tranche 3 is off the production line for the Royal Air Force (RAF). Recently the integration of the last avionics of the platform has begun at BAE Systems' Warton facilities. 

 

According to Flight Global, the RAF has more than 100 Eurofighter Typhoon T3s in its inventory. The last of the platforms will be delivered later this year. On the other hand, the first T3 in the inventory was delivered 14 years ago. The Royal Air Force plans to keep the aircraft in inventory until 2040.

 

Following the final platform, the installation of 28 T3 Typhoon ordered for Kuwait and 24 for Qatar, will be carried out on BAE Systems production lines.
