More Ty­phoons for Saudi Arabia

Vayu Aerospace and Defence - - World Aviation & Defence News -

Saudi Arabia is close to or­der­ing a follow- on batch of 48 Eurofighter Ty­phoons, with a mem­o­ran­dum of in­tent (MoI) signed on 9 March. Saudi Arabia had in 2007 or­dered 72 Ty­phoons for some $41 bil­lion. The first 24 air­craft were built by BAE Sys­tems at its War­ton pro­duc­tion fa­cil­ity, af­ter which it was planned that the re­main­ing 48 be as­sem­bled in Saudi Arabia by the Al­salam Air­craft Com­pany. In the event, all 72 air­craft were built in the UK, but there is no re­lated de­ci­sion on the next batch.
