Eurofighter pitches Typhoon as Polish Su-22, MiG-29 replacement
The Eurofighter consortium believes it has put itself at the front of the line to answer a nascent Polish requirement for combat aircraft, to replace an air force fleet of ageing Soviet-era types.
Although a request for information has yet to be issued – and Eurofighter acknowledges that any contest may be years away – the company is keen to highlight the capability enhancements being introduced to the Typhoon. These include an active electronically scanned array radar and the integration of MBDA's Storm Shadow cruise missile and Brimstone 2 munitions. flightglobal
