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

36
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

        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!

    Пусть себе. Не будут летать, и хорошо. Правда, немцы в Сирии не летают, французы на "Рафалях", а Бриты на "Торнадо". Остальные - вроде на F 16. Поймал себя на мысли, что рассчитываю группировку наших против "ихних" в терминах воздушной войны. База то одна работает. Группировку наши нарастить уже не смогут, аэродром не резиновый, по 80-100 вылетов в день - это наверное, уже близко к его пределу. Не по пропускной возможности ВПП, а по возможностям обслуживания группировки. А ставить ещё одну базу, распыляя силы прикрытия и усложняя логистику, наши очевидно не хотят.

    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.

    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.

      Такими как ты нужно иногда включать мозг и читать твиттеры террористов. После приказа сбивать наши самолёты на Ираком 1 бодрый английский лётчик на "Тайфуне" атаковал наш "Су-30" над Сирии восточнее Хамы и был сбит. Эта новость всего лишь результат того воздушного боя. Нужно понимать, что западная пропаганда это одно, а реальные боевые возможности это другое.

        Твиттеры террористов как раз и предназначены для таких как ты,сынок. Послушай дедушку:"Над любым театром военных действий фронтовые истребители в одиночку не летают, не говоря уж о бомбардировщиках, штурмовиках и даже боевых вертолетах. Никакого воздушного боя восточнее Хамы не было.
        Весь этот ТВД просматривается РЛС и средствами космической разведки США,НАТО и России. Никто не стал бы замалчивать этот факт и разразился бы грандиозный скандал. Его, пока что, нет.Значит и самого события тоже". Смотри телевизор, анализируй,словом, включай мозги.

          А его и не замалчивают. Есть такая штука, как радиолюбители слушающие переговоры авиации НАТО. И вот на 8892 (вроде там) был услышан и сам бой и спасательная операция по вывозу катапультировавшегося английского пилота под прикрытием 3 американских "F-15". Телевизор смотреть не стоит. Там нет ничего свежего. И быть не может по определению.

Отметая рекламную " шелуху" Вы постепенно доберетесь до главного - сегодня этот фронтовой истребитель самый лучший из всего,чем располагает НАТО и выявленные в нем дефекты обязательно устранят,если уже не устранили,потому,что кроме него им больше нечего противопоставить нашим Су и МиГам.

          Я умею пользоваться поиском, и в целом согласен самолет не так уж плох. И детские болезни у любой машины поначалу имеются. Я про "кобру Пугачева", как-то не встречал, погуглил, а то вдруг что-то пропустил. Неа, нету нигде такого видео. Могу сказать что французы свой Мираж 2000 колокол научили делать (надо полагать что рафаль тоже смогет), видел колокол в исполнении ф-22. Кобру видел только в исполнении советских/российских машин.
