 EADS reveals details of Eurofighter Typhoon offer to Norway to replace JSF order-06/04/2006-London-Flight International
EADS says its offer is the reply to a request for information from the Norwegian government and comes as Oslo is expressing serious reservations over its lack of industrial participation in the Lockheed martin F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) programme.
EADS says the offer "includes numerous opportunities for participation" tied to possible purchase the aircraft, including "tailored delivery and payment terms as well as a variety of options for active involvement of Norwegian industry in Eurofighter technologies and offset offers".
EADS dismissed the idea of Norway investing in a less expensive “Eurofighter lite” with reduced capabilities enabling Oslo to offset its initial investment in JSF, which would be lost if it exited the programme.
