Eurofighter Typhoon: The Perfect Solution for Poland
Eurofighter continued its season of autumn shows with a large presence in Kielce, Poland this week as the international defence consortium develops further its relationships across Europe. Eurofighter Typhoon had a first time presence at the 18th International Defence Industry Exhibition (MSPO) which began on Monday 6th September and ran through to the 9th. The well attended event saw over 360 exhibitors representing a wide variety of nations and the Eurofighter exhibit drew in many of them.
With a potential future requirement for a new multi-role aircraft that provides the Polish Air Force with a long-term deterrent, Eurofighter and its partner companies: BAE Systems, EADS and Alenia Aeronautica, can offer significant benefits for Polish industry including industrial partnerships, associated transfer of technology, and the offer of strong bilateral economic benefits across Europe.
The Eurofighter exhibit at MSPO displayed a selection of current and future capabilities on the aircraft including the newly in-service Helmet Mounted Symbology System (HMSS) and the recently announced Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) Radar. The aircraft’s capabilities are fully flexible, with the ability to deliver a range of multi-role mission requirements from one platform. The aircraft is fully interoperable with NATO forces and has the ability to compliment mixed fleets.
Eurofighter continue to build links with European air forces, and a Polish future requirement would strengthen further the European aerospace and defence industry. With over 100,000 people working on Eurofighter across 400 companies, joining the programme would mean enhancing highly skilled Polish jobs and introducing a diverse network of suppliers, bringing flexibility, technology and industrial partnerships to the nation.
