Eurofighter proposed the Bundeswehr to replace the aircraft "Tornado"


Beginning in 2025, the German Air Force plans to decommission Tornado aircraft. They can be replaced by Typhoon fighters, which are already in service with the German Air Force. fleet.

Currently, the Air Force has 130 Typhoon and 90 Tornado aircraft.

According to Bernhard Brenner, head of marketing and sales at Airbus Defense and Space, "Typhoon" "is already the basis of the German Air Force and therefore it is a logical option to replace them with Tornado planes in the medium term."

The sale of the aircraft will ensure the transfer of key know-how in the field of aviation in Germany and will support European sovereignty in the field of defense. The successful continuation of the production of Typhoon fighters can also lead to increased cooperation with other European countries, such as Switzerland, Belgium and Finland,
said brenner.

The publication notes that in Britain the Typhoon fighters have already “largely taken over the Tornado missions,” since the Air Force of this country decided to remove obsolete fighter-bombers from service in 2019.

        I believe that this is more profitable than the F-35, because at least half of the service structure is already available, a little upgrade for a specific device ...

        Do it right. Already formed a structure, logistics. The transition to an already operating product is quite logical. And the 5th generation - if the big mahach begins, they will remove everything from storage that at least a little can fly .... So far it’s still flying on the 4th.

    It is amazing that Germany, with all its economic power, is losing its potential, I think thanks to the Allies. The Germans are already talking about the purchase of the F-35, this is just ridiculous.
