COMING UP: Where The Typhoon For India Stands

Have just finished a sensational, snowblown tour to the Luftwaffe's 73 Fighter Wing at Laage Air Force Base in Germany's north, which houses the country's Eurofighter Typhoon operational training and conversion squadron. Also stopped off at Manching near Munich, where final assembly of the Luftwaffe and Austrian Typhoons takes place. I took the photo above at the Laage's new "six pack" hangar setup -- it shows a Typhoon being marshalled back into its hangar after a forty minute training sortie. More exclusive photos and reports soon.

The Eurocanards have a short time until F-35 and PAK-FA get into full production. Either they can give us a good price on Eurofighter OR share the technology. The world is moving to 5th gen. Eurocanards need to think of LOSS-MINIMIZATION and NOT PROFIT MAXIMIZATION as yet. Only Gripen would break even most likely.
