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

Game Analysis

"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"."

Trivia

  • 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. The German Luftwaffe however, chose to continue to refer their aircraft as EF-2000 due to "Typhoon" apparently referring to Hawker Typhoon, a prop-driven fighter bomber commonly employed against Germany in World War 2.
  • The Leasath Typhoons that take off from an aircraft carrier in Ace Combat Xi: Skies of Incursion reference real-life proposals to build such variants.[11]
