BAE Systems supporting production of Eurofighter Typhoons
The work will maintain continuity of Typhoon production through to the mid-2020s and sustain high-value engineering roles in the UK. BAE Systems will deliver more than a third of the components for each of the new Typhoons ordered by the German Air Force including the aircraft’s front fuselage and tail. Final assembly will be undertaken by Airbus in Manching, Germany.
The order was awarded to BAE Systems by Eurofighter, the consortium which represents the core nations’ industrial partners comprising Airbus, BAE Systems and Leonardo.
