Description: The Typhoon Programme aims to deliver an agile multi-role fighter that is capable of providing 75% of UK’s combat aircraft (ac). Typhoon is being delivered in 3 Tranches of ac: Tranches 1 and 2 have now all been delivered with the Tranche 3 delivery profiled between December 2013 and April 2018. The current delivery programme has the following major elements: Future Capability Programme 1 - to deliver a multi-role, dual-mode precision guided bomb capability to Tranche 2 and 3 ac; Future Capability Programme 2 - to deliver Meteor, Stormshadow and Brimstone 2 to Tranche 2 and 3 ac; advanced radar - to deliver increased capability to Tranche 3 ac, specifically Electronic Attack, Day/Night/All weather targeting and full exploitation of Meteor; and Typhoon Future Synthetics - to improve synthetic training capability and enable Air Command's intent to reduce the volume of live training flying.

Schedule text: The first phase of the Future Capability Programme has shown good progress over the past year now that the project schedule has been rebaselined, through joint working between the Department and industry. This accommodated the 18-month delay which was highlighted in Major Projects Report 2012. The Typhoon front line fleet continues to build with well over half of the contracted deliveries of 160 aircraft in three tranches now in service with the Royal Air Force. Typhoon Tranche 2 has been declared as multi-role ready for training to further enable the development of the Typhoon Force.
