"They're flying Typhoons. Don't underestimate these guys."
Larry Foulke

The Eurofighter EF-2000 Typhoon is multirole fighter designed by the multinational Eurofighter GmbH. With a canard delta wing layout, the Typhoon is an advanced 4.5 generation fighter. It displays a level of performance that allows it to match more advanced aircraft in numerous aspects. It can easily undertake air combat and ground strike operations.

HistoryEdit

Typhoons were fielded as early as the Belkan War, with Rot Squadron being the most notable user. Several other BAF aces flew the aircraft. The Allied Forces (Osea, Ustio, etc.) also had their own units, participating in several battles.

In the years that followed, air forces in Usea such as the Scarface TFS and Federal Erusian Air Force also had their respective Typhoons, seeing combat in the region's 1997, 1998 and 2004-2005 wars.

The Typhoon remained fairly popular as a high tier air combat fighter throughout the 21st Century, with numerous users maintaining their respective fleets.

"The latest, elite air supremacy fighter created through joint development between the four countries of England, Germany, Spain, and Italy. Offering high maneuverability, an excellent fire control system also allows it to excel at air combat against multiple targets. A combination of a close-coupled delta canard wing (front wing) and delta wings provide excellent aerodynamic capabilities, giving it agility most suited to the name, the "Typhoon"."

This aircraft's part slots can be steadily increased by repeatedly sortieing with it. The "part slot expansion points" required are displayed below; when all of the points for one expansion are obtained, all three part slot categories will receive one additional slot and the left-over points will carry over towards the next expansion. After each sortie, players will receive anywhere between 100 to 130 expansion points (x2.5 for using two fuel, or x4.5 for using three fuel).

If any expansion is not displayed, then data is not yet available for that particular expansion.

TriviaEdit

  • The Typhoon is tied with the F-117A Nighthawk for the highest appearances in the Ace Combat series, appearing in all 12 games and having a fictional variant, the EF-2000E Typhoon II, appear in Ace Combat 3: Electrosphere.
  • Until the release of Ace Combat Infinity, the Typhoon had not seen significant use among friendlies. However, the type has become canon aircraft of Omega. Rather appropriate for his nationality, which is part British. (The UK was a major EFA contributor).
  • In recent naming conventions, the "EF-2000" moniker became somewhat obsolete as the aircraft was meant to enter service in the year 2000. An older designation was "EFA", which stood for European Fighter Aircraft. The final name "Typhoon" was chosen in the late 90's.
