The Typhoon is a supersonic jet fighter aircraft developed and manufactured by Eurofighter GmbH for the Luftwaffe, British Royal Airforce, Spanish Air Force, and Italian Air Force. The prototype first flew on a test flight in 1994 and entered service in 2003. The Typhoon is a single-seat fighter fitted with delta wings and canards, which are mounted on the forward fuselage, just below cockpit, as they give the aircraft greater maneuverability. It is powered by two Eurojet EJ200 jet engines, with the air intakes located on ventral side under fuselage. It has a maximum speed of Mach 2 (1550mph) and a range of 1800 miles (2900km). The Eurofighter Typhoon is armed with one 27mm Mauser BK-27 gun, IRIS-T and AIM-132 ASRAAM air-to-air missiles, AGM-65 Maverick and AGM-88 Harm air-to-surface missiles; this multirole fighter can also carry GBU-27 Paveway III and GBU-37 Paveway IV anti-bunker guided bombs.
