Eurofighter global air polic­ing du­ties

SP's MAI - - AEROSPACE DEVELOPMENTS -

Eurofighter Ty­phoon will con­tinue to play a key role as a de­ter­rent and polic­ing ca­pa­bil­ity for 2015 says Al­berto Gu­tier­rez, the Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer of Eurofighter Jagdflugzeug GmbH.

Speak­ing from Eurofighter’s head of­fice in Mu­nich, Ger­many, the CEO said: “Now, more than ever, the role that the Eurofighter is play­ing in pro­tect­ing na­tions and polic­ing be­hav­iours across the globe is a crit­i­cal ca­pa­bil­ity for our cus­tomer’s armed forces.”

With 427 Eurofighter Ty­phoon air­craft de­liv­ered to cus­tomer air forces in six na­tions, the multi-role fast-jet fighter is in­creas­ingly be­ing seen pro­tect­ing skies through a va­ri­ety of mis­sions – in some cases es­cort­ing civil­ian air­craft to safe land­ings where lives are be­lieved to be in dan­ger – and in oth­ers sim­ply pa­trolling airspace and mon­i­tor­ing air­craft move­ments.
