Italian Air Force F-2000A Typhoon
The Eurofighter 2000 prototype first took to the air 24 years ago. Now known by most of its operators as the Typhoon, this formidable multi-role combat aircraft has since become very much an operational reality, in service not only with the air forces of Eurofighter partner nations Germany, Spain, Italy and the UK, but also those of Austria and Saudi Arabia. The Italian Air Force, which calls the aircraft the F-2000A (or TF-2000A in the case of two-seat versions), first displayed the Typhoon at RIAT in 2013 and will do so again in 2018. Another example will be on static display.
