Final UK Typhoon squadron to stand up

The fifth and final UK Royal Air Force (RAF) Eurofighter Typhoon combat aircraft squadron is to stand up next month, completing the United Kingdom's Typhoon force structure.
According to an RAF spokesman, II (Army Co-operation - AC) Squadron will reform at RAF Lossiemouth in northeast Scotland on 9 January to operate the Typhoon.
There had been some uncertainty over the RAF's roll-out of its final Typhoon squadron after the UK government decided in October to retain II (AC) Squadron in service as a Tornado GR.4 unit for another year. It had previously been announced in December 2013 that the squadron would begin converting to the Typhoon in early 2015.
