Eurofighter History: The Eurofighter Typhoon is the perfect example of the result of well-done cooperation between some nations. In the Italian air force, the aircaft is the main fighter. Talking about its story, In 1983, development of the Eurofighter began as part of the New European Fighter program, a program involving Italy, Germany, the United Kingdom, Spain, and France, but after a few years, France left the project to build the Dassault Rafale. After France’s final exit, the first technical demonstrator, the Bae Eap, flew to the United Kingdom a few years later, in August 1986. The companies involved in the project were Bae Sistems (United Kingdom), Airbus (Germany), Alenia Aereonautica, now Leonardo (Italy), and ITP Aereo (Spain). The first prototypes were DA (Development Aircraft), and the first of seven, the German DA1, flew for the first time on March 27, 1994, followed by the British DA2 on April 6 of the same year. A total of 7 prototypes were built: DA1 and DA5 (Germans), DA2 and DA4 (British), DA3 and DA7 (Italians), and DA6 (Spanish). The first contract for a total of 148 Trance 1 aircraft (55 for the UK, 44 for Germany, 29 for Italy, and 20 for Spain) was signed in 1998, and serial production of the first version, the Trance 1, began in 2000. In 2004, the production of 236 units of the second Trance started and in 2009 the production for 112 Trance 3 units was commissioned. Compared to Trance 2, Trance 3 got upgraded avionic, defensive sistems and new weapons (such as Anty ship missiles) and in future it will be fitted with very powerfould AESA radar’s. The Italian air force currently has 21 Trance 3 and in future they will be fitted with the ECRS MK2, a new British-Italian AESA radar.

Why it should be in game: It will be the top veichles of the Italian tree until Trance 4 Eurofighter will enter in service. It will be a very good addition, when the times will comes.
