Germany halts purchases of Eurofighter Typhoon aircraft due to a serious defect

Representatives of the German Defense Ministry reported the suspension of purchases of Eurofighter Typhoon combat aircraft due to the discovery of a new “manufacturing defect” in an expensive and problematic combat vehicle affecting “the connection between the vertical tail and the rear of the aircraft,” the newspaper writes "Sight" citing Defense-aerospace и Süddeutsche Zeitung.




Currently, the Ministry of Defense has suspended new orders, but the circumstances that have opened up will not affect the flights of the planes that are part of the German Air Force.

Earlier it was noted that by the 2018, the Bundeswehr would receive a 143 twin-engine fighter, but due to various technical problems, as well as an increase in the value of the order of several billion euros, the German military changed the original plans. In particular, in October 2014, a defect was found in the fuselage, in 2010, in the aircraft ejection system.

    Something is not right in these airplanes (according to the logic of the military).
    Wow, even some Indians lost in the exercises. Ai-Ai, a bad plane with a defect in its fuselage and catapult may not work from a stiff diaper. No SU or MIG planned to buy.

      German Defense Ministry Spokespersons Reported Suspension of Purchases of Eurofighter Typhoon Combat Aircraft Due to Detection of New “Production Defect”
      The Germans know how to count money, served there at the time, made sure. Our officials would learn from them. And in return, we would help them with military equipment. Let them buy from us, what we ourselves must suffer! Russian is still better and cheaper.

        Is he the descendant of Messerschmitt, who shot the columns of our children sent to the rear?

        So let everything fall off completely and there is no need for him to fly at all

        And he looks predatory, like a raven, as if he had again aimed at stealthily killing peaceful people, not like ours - strong, calm, confident and not dangerous (for his own)

        I remembered the story of my father, boiled

          "The connection between the vertical tail and the rear of the aircraft"

          would have written, "the tail may fall off."

        There is no need for the Germans to sell our aircraft. Let them fly on their airships. Our planes should be with the allies, and not those who impose sanctions against us.

          According to Alar Laats, spokesman for the Estonian Air Force, the incident occurred on Friday. In fact, a check was carried out to clarify whether this was due to negligence or for some other reason.

      In my opinion, this clearly speaks only about one thing, there is nothing constructive here, a really pure manufacturing defect, according to the peasant woman saying PRODUCTION MARRIAGE! Yes, such that the plane can’t fly! And if he flies, then he has no problems and will continue to fly!

    Let yourself. They will not fly, and good. True, the Germans do not fly to Syria, the French on the Rafales, and the Britons on the Tornado. The rest are sort of F 16. I caught myself thinking that I was counting our grouping against "theirs" in terms of air war. The base is working alone. Our grouping will no longer be able to build up, the airfield is not rubber, with 80-100 sorties per day - this is probably close to its limit. Not by runway capacity, but by grouping service capabilities. And we obviously do not want to set up another base, spraying cover forces and complicating logistics.

    Both the EU and the United States have recently had a lot of complaints about aircraft. First, the increase in value, then the shortcomings crawled - everything, like a carbon copy. Also probably learned to cut money.

    Frozen backlash! On the F-104, they "ate the ground" (more than 200 SAMs were lost) and everything was wonderful! And now - “the catapult is not correct”, “the fuselage is defective”! So they certainly will not build the IV Reich! negative

    First very good. for a long time they decided either to do it themselves or to buy. We decided to do it. They couldn’t take them into service for a very long time, the plane couldn’t reach the declared characteristics ... Although it was developed by more than one EU country. And when he was accepted all the same, it turned out that the plane was already outdated ...

    It’s high time for the authors of many comments to stop writing all sorts of nonsense. In countries where "they know how to count money," a bad plane will never be adopted. During the operation of the machine in the troops, some structural defects that can be fixed in one way or another can be detected. This is a recognized global practice. The "typhoon" in the sky is a serious and dangerous adversary. It is easy to manage and accessible to intermediate pilots, able to perform aerobatic and difficult aerobatics, including the "Pugachev cobra", can conduct maneuverable air combat, surpasses all F-16s in a number of ways. Mirage-2000, Rafal and Grippen have a modern avionics complex and efficient weapons. Ultimately, German experts will bring it “to mind,” just as the MiG-29 and Su-27 were “treated” in Russia before they reached the modern level.

      Such as you sometimes need to turn on the brain and read the twitter of terrorists. After the order to shoot down our planes in Iraq, one peppy English pilot on the Typhoon attacked our Su-1 over Syria east of Hama and was shot down. This news is just the result of that air battle. You need to understand that Western propaganda is one thing, and real combat capabilities are another.

        The terrorist tweets are just for people like you, son. Listen to grandfather: “Frontline fighters do not fly alone over any theater of operations, not to mention bombers, attack aircraft and even combat helicopters. There was no air combat east of Hama.
        All this theater is viewed by radar and space intelligence of the United States, NATO and Russia. No one would ignore this fact and a great scandal would break out. He, for now, is not there. It means the event itself, too. "Watch TV, analyze, in a word, turn on your brains.

          And he is not hushed up. There is such a thing as hams listening to NATO aviation talks. And on 8892 (sort of there), the battle itself and a rescue operation to take out an ejected English pilot under cover of 3 American F-15s were heard. You should not watch TV. There is nothing fresh. And it cannot be by definition.

        Type in the Yandex command line "Eurofighter Typhoon Fighter" and see the information. including and videos on many sites. Noting the advertising "husk" you will gradually get to the point - today this front-line fighter is the best of all that NATO has and the defects identified in it will surely be eliminated if they have not been eliminated, because apart from it there is nothing more to oppose to our Su and MiGs.

          I can use the search, and generally agree the plane is not so bad. And childhood diseases in any car are initially available. I didn’t meet about Pugachev’s cobra, I googled it, otherwise I suddenly missed something. Nope, there’s no such video anywhere. I can say that the French taught their Mirage 2000 to make a bell (we must assume that Rafal can also), I saw a bell performed by f-22. Cobra saw only in the performance of Soviet / Russian cars.
          Something like that. hi

    It was necessary for the Germans themselves to build "Messers" or "Fokkreys" to build a connection of the times, so to speak. And it’s easier for us the same way we shot down and we will shoot down.
