    Sounds a bit like the downed Israeli F-35. Claim with no evidence.

    Except that Israel has denied the information, while for the moment Saudi Arabia has not done so.

    So where's the evidence? The downed plane wreckage?

    No there is no evidence, but there is no evidence of the contrary too...

    You could say that about any air plane being shot down with no wreckage. Can't prove a negative. They made the claim, let them provide evidence of the claim.

    Think so, wonder if they only tested them or if there are CFT flight tests coming soon, with project Janus in mind.

    I asked an actual Typhoon pilot, so that's definitely what they are. Can't say as regards ISD for CFTs but it would make sense if they sneaked them into the same update as Storm Shadows.

    All T3As were meant to get the capability to carry CFTs anyway, but so far I haven't seen one with these provisions. Let's hope that they are not only testing them, but also at least some CFT mock ups.

    Just a few examples of the promises made by Eurofighter and the way they were interpreted by the fan boys.

    The Meteor air-to-air missile is expected to enter front-line service on RAF Typhoon aircraft in 2015/2016.

    Well the same can be said about Rafale fan boys, HMS, IRST, GaN, engine upgrades, CFTs..., AASM versions, EF surpassing Rafale in CAS.
    At the end of the day, both fighters came late, the one was less funded at the beginning, the other now. And in both examples fan boys can't accept the bad sides of their preferred fighter.
