The performance specifications of the Eurofighter Typhoon make it a benchmarking fighter aircraft, in several roles.

Extremely powerful, efficient engines, paired with a low gross weight give it an extraordinary thrust-to-weight ratio. The result is an aircraft that regularly outclasses competitors when it comes to performance evaluations.

Fuel system

From Standstill

Throughout the aircraft flexible couplings connect the fuel pipework built into the three main fuselage sections and wings. These provide a simple method to connect the fuel tanks, which all have fuel-flow proportions to maintain the centre of gravity alongside relief valves to maintain air and fuel pressures. The intelligent computer-controlled fuel system ensures long-range, flexibility and safety.


From Standstill

Pilots were included in the design from the earliest stage to develop a deliberately unstable airframe that can still be flown effectively. This delivers both superior manoeuvrability at subsonic speeds and efficient supersonic capability to support the widest range of combat scenarios.
