Description: Typhoon is an agile multi-role combat aircraft for the RAF. It is being developed, produced and supported collaboratively with Germany, Italy and Spain. The RAF will receive 160 aircraft in three tranches and will form the cornerstone of the UKs air defence capabilities in the future along with Lightning II. The Typhoon Future Capability Programme provides enhancements to the Typhoon aircraft, both in the air-to-air and air-to-surface roles, sustaining the fleet’s multi-role capabilities. The first phase of the Future Capability Programme will integrate Paveway IV and the Lightning III Laser Designator Pod onto Tranche 2 aircraft.
