German Air Force EF2000

Germany operates the second largest number of Eurofighters after the UK. It still refers to the type simply as the Eurofighter, or EF2000, rather than the Typhoon. Four of the air arm's Taktischen Luftwaffengeschwader (Tactical Air Wings) fly the aircraft in Luftwaffe service, with 73 at Laage (the air force's EF2000 training unit) and 74 at Neuburg each sending an aircraft to RIAT 2017. Germany initially utilised the Eurofighter solely in the air-to-air role but is now developing its employment of the aircraft's multi-role capabilities.

Jeremy Clarkson, Television Presenter

“All the thrills, excitement and noise of a Grand Prix, but in the air!”

Jenson Button, Formula 1 Racing Driver
