The Colombian Air Force is exploring the possibility of buying used Eurofighter Typhoon fighter jets from Spain, reports bmpd with reference to the portal Inquisit.


Colombia may purchase used Eurofighter Typhoon in Spain
Fighter Eurofighter Typhoon Series Tranche 2 Spanish Air Force.

“If the deal goes through, then Colombia will be the first country in Latin America to have such planes in service. It will also mean a qualitative leap for the Colombian Air Force - now the modernized IAI Kfir Israeli fighter jets are used as the main fighter, ”the material says.

We are talking about the Eurofighter Typhoon fighter jets of the Tranche 2 series, equipped with the Meteor advanced air-to-air missile. It is reported that "at the moment Colombia is planning to acquire the number of aircraft necessary to equip one fighter squadron."

Other options for upgrading the Air Force are also being considered, including through the pre-owned Mirage 2000 and Rafale from the French company Dassault, American Lockheed Martin F-16 and Boeing F / A-18, Swedish Saab JAS-39 Gripen and even Russian Su-30. .

“Although a possible deal with the Spaniards is just one of many possible options, this particular option is quite real against the background of unusually good relations between Madrid and Bogota,” the author concludes.

      no one in latin america has, but I have, and the fact that they are manufactured piece by piece, and do not get spare parts, so do not give a damn

        Why are they Bogotá, but just the time has come to be updated. They have already looked closely there for a long time, especially since many neighbors have bought themselves.
        That’s why Spain is dropping “airplanes out of stock”, because it’s not from an excess of airplanes, but rather from the inability to maintain the existing fleet. crying

            Nope, Nata will not help. Nata is not a charity cantor: pay for yours yourself. Moreover, Spain is not the Baltic states and is very far from the self-aware lol

        The plane is good. But will Colombia have enough money? A little expensive thing. And there will always be opponents. Venezuela is not very friendly with Colombia.

    Strange, but what the hell is that magnificence? For good, there is enough Yak-130 or its Italian counterpart. And it will come out cheaper. Against who?

      With a good rollback, no questions arise.
