    Then this is already 2016, production will end in 2019 for the UK. They will have to place an order this year then.

    If you do, and so as to be consistent with Brexit, don't forget to rename it Anglofighter.

    We'll just carry on calling it, "Typhoon," like we always have. Except with no Germans to B***h about how many Nazis the original namesake shot down.

    Lots of wording effort and damage control to avoid the truth: IAF slapped Typhoon fleet during this exercise.
    That was the feedback from the pilots who participate.
    What politicians says about the exercise change nothing, they just do their politicians job

    BAE Systems outlines benefits for Belgian Typhoon

    BAE Systems and the Eurofighter consortium companies are looking to grow their engagement with Belgian industry as part of their offering of the Eurofighter Typhoon for a current Belgian Air Force requirement.

    It is expected that the Belgian government will invoke Article 346 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU) relating to the security of supply of military equipment as part of its fighter replacement programme that was announced in 2014.

    As a result, it is likely that competitors for the programme will have to provide the Belgian government with work packages and capabilities related to the procurement of the aircraft that are to be outlined in the forthcoming Request for Government Proposals (RFGP). As part of the anticipated RFGP, BAE Systems is looking to provide assistance for Belgian government and private firms to undertake maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) work on the aircraft as part of an anticipated wider offering on the programme.

    Mark Parkinson, campaign director for BAE Systems' Belgian Typhoon campaign, toldIHS Jane's that the Belgian government would be "establishing a relationship with the three largest aerospace and defence suppliers in Europe" through the Eurofighter consortium, which could help to build further opportunities for the country's industrial base.

    "If you look at the Eurofighter consortium companies, we already deal quite extensively with the Belgian supply base - there are nearly 200 companies we already have a relationship with. What we would look to do is continue to build on those relationships that we have, as well as dealing with the direct requirements of the programme that are expressed in the RFGP," Parkinson said.

    "The strength of the Eurofighter consortium is that we have all the intellectual property rights in the programme, and therefore - subject to the relevant export licencing and control - we anticipate we will be able to meet the Belgian requirements for security of supply for the platform and the weapon systems," he added.

    Please do not pay much heed to the results of a bilateral exercise. Only WVR combat is valid in such exercises as no country will be willing to exercise with the aircraft's full capability of electronic system. It is same for Su-30 MKI where IAF only operates the training mode of its primary radar. My only take from the result is a possibility that Su-30 MKI might do better in close-maneuvering compared to Typhoon. And this is just my personal observation and I don't rule out being wrong about it.

    Personally, F-35, Typhoon and Rafale holds superior BVR package than WVR and the results may be not so interesting in exercises due to limitations of displaying complete capability of the aircraft.

    Good Day all!
