Description: The Typhoon Programme aims to deliver an agile multi-role fighter that is capable of providing 75% of UK Combat Aircraft (ac) Force Elements at Readiness (FE@R) for Future Force 2020. 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 (PWIV) capability to Tranche 2 and 3 ac; Future Capability Programme 2 - to deliver Meteor, Stormshadow and Brimstone 2 to Tranche 2 and 3 ac; AESA radar - to deliver increased capability to Tranche 3 ac, specifically Electronic Attack, Day/Night/All weather targeting and full exploitation of Meteor; Typhoon Future Synthetics - to improve synthetic training capability and enable Air Command's intent to reduce the volume of live training flying.

DCA text: Funding of future upgrades to ensure that Typhoon delivers its required capability outputs continues to be progressed through the approvals process. An agreement has been reached with the EuroFighter Partner Nations for the UK to progress some key UK-only requirements which will significantly de-risk delivery timelines. Shared integration of Stormshadow has been agreed and contracted for in partnership with KSA
Start date: 1987-11-06
End date: 2024-03-30
Schedule text: Typhoon Tranche 2 has been declared multi-role capable for air to ground operational missions; The next major milestone for Typhoon is on 31 Dec 18 when Typhoon Tranche 2 and 3 will declare a Stormshadow and Brimstone 2 capability (the latter almost 2 years earlier than originally planned). This will align delivery of key weapons with the Out of Service Date for Tornado GR4 and therefore ensure continuous delivery of key UK capability effects from combat aircraft. Delivery of Tranche 3 aircraft is progressing on schedule.
Baseline: £1,069.46m
Forecast: £1,023.39m
Variance: -4.30%
Variance text: Budget variance less than 5%
Whole Life Cost: £19,210.68m
WLCost text: Work continues to ensure that whole-life costs remain within allocated budget. The Fast Air Support Team is working closely with BAES to produce a Future State Operating Model. This will create mutually agreed efficiencies in order to achieve budget forecasts and to provide programme financial headroom for future platform development. There has been a reduction in costs since Q2 2013/14 which is due to the reporting horizon now being aligned to the ‘end of manufacture’; FOREX adjustments to Tranche 2 and 3 CTs, both US$ and EURO; Retirement of Risk Inside Costing; and, the McKinsey Flying Hours work.
