  EFA-2000 Eurofighter
Eurofighter is a single-seat, twin-engine, agile combat aircraft which will be used in the air-to-air, air-to-ground and tactical reconnaissance roles.
Eurofighter remains the offical name in Europe, and Typhoon will not automatically be the EF2000s name with the four partner air forces when it enters service in 2002/3.
Eurofighter’s high performance is matched by excellent all round vision and by sophisticated attack, identification and defence systems which include the ECR 90 long range radar and Infra Red Search and Track (IRST) system, advanced medium and short range air-to-air missiles and a comprehensive electronic warfare suite to enhance weapon system effectiveness and survivability.

  The EuroFighter Typhoon
However, Typhoon was a good choice for a name, since it was assigned to historically important British and German aircraft, and the word itself is derived from Japanese and so reflects no linguistic bias among the EuroFighter group member nations.
The EuroFighter is a canard aircraft, powered by twin Eurojet EJ.200 two-spool afterburning turbofans, with the intakes on the belly of the aircraft under the cockpit.
While the EuroFighter has a greater RCS than the US F-22 or F-35, radar-absorbent material is used in the inlets and around the cockpit, and the composite assemblies were designed with an eye towards reducing RCS.

 Eurofighter Typhoon - Demon or Lemon?
The excellent empty weight of the Typhoon in relation to the wing size is as much a result of the compact configuration, as it is of the generous use of carbon fibre composites in the fuselage and wing of the aircraft.
From the perspective of airframe optimisations, the Typhoon is without doubt optimised for its two primary design objectives, which are supersonic BVR interception and close in combat at transonic speeds, with no obvious concessions made to the secondary objective of strike.
The Typhoon's weaknesses are its F/A-18C class weight and thrust and the implications of this in combat at extended operational radii, and the longer term sensitivity of its BVR weapons advantage to equivalent technological developments in opposing fighters.

 Eurofighter Typhoon for PC Review - PC Eurofighter Typhoon Review
Having to jump around from plane to plane gives Eurofighter Typhoon a scattered feel in which you're fighting timing rather than flying missions.
You might be tempted to point at Eurofighter Typhoon among the new releases and say, "Hey, look, flight sims aren't dead after all!" But you'd be wrong, because it isn't much of a flight sim.
Eurofighter isn't quite as simple as F-16, but there's still a lot of silliness going on, and it will turn off hard-core flight-sim fans.

Eurofighter Typhoon is different from any of the company's previous titles.
While many in the flight sim community would have been satisfied to outfit the Eurofighter in the TAW or Wargen engine, DID made it clear that the new Eurofighter release would not be a hardcore sim, but would focus on battle management, strategy and fun.
Therefore, it may be a bit unfair to compare Eurofighter Typhoon to a typical sim.

Typhoon started life as a "study" sim: The type of simulation that focuses on one warbird, and models it to exacting standards.
Another new thing in Typhoon will be the ability to manage a "team" of pilots-you will go into action with six pilots, and you'll have to keep them alive to stay in the game.
Typhoon does promise hot dogfights, and from the.asp's I have seen, the action will be hot, reminiscent of a WWII game more than a typical jet sim; it seems that Beyond-Visual-Range combat is being discouraged in the name of action.

 But the Russians aren't coming | Special reports | Guardian Unlimited
At first glance, it looked quite a pleasant task: the sun was shining, the Eurofighter was gleaming, and the people queueing, who wore T-shirts with missiles on them and held carrier bags advertising the Daily Mail, did not seem likely opponents of the military-industrial complex.
Yet the Eurofighter was devised in a very different era: when massed formations of Russian aircraft were anticipated by western military planners as an accompaniment to an invasion of Europe.
At Saturday's air tattoo, a Eurofighter was self-consciously scheduled to appear in the flying display immediately after a Spitfire.

The Typhoon, with a pilot who was barely checked out in the aircraft and had no combat experience with those systems, was consistently able to evade the F-15s and end up on their tail.
The Typhoon is a superior aircraft to the F-15, and I'm not too proud to admit it.
having tested the typhoon against harriers - anyone in a ahrrier would not stand a chance, i was flying against a pilot with much greater experience - and he is, genuinely better than me, but due to the upper hand gained by the typhoon for me, i could permanently stay on his tail.

 domain-B - Aviation and Aerospace - Eurofighter Typhoon: Rafting out the moon
This is a problem for the engineers as the tolerances now used to build the Typhoon's airframe, and of similar advanced aircraft, are so fine that if the movements of tides is not accounted for in the manufacturing process, it could result in throwing a jet fighter's tolerances out.
The unstable, but hugely agile, Typhoon is 15 metres long, tip to tip, and such build accuracy helps the Typhoon's fly-by-wire computer system to accurately control the aircraft.
Pioneered on the Typhoon, this advanced manufacturing technology is now being utilised for the manufacture of the US F-35 Lightning II, slated to be the world's first stealthy, supersonic, multi-role fighter.

The Eurofighter Typhoon industry consortium and user community have paved the way for a two-year rolling update cycle designed to gradually introduce a wide range of advanced capabilities that will give the Typhoon multirole and swing-role mission performance.
Negotiations for the so-called Phase 1 Enhancements (P1E) were scheduled to be finalised in September and October of this year, followed by contract award by the end of 2006, said Dr Harald Heindl, senior manager for Eurofighter product development at EADS Military Air Systems (Munich, Germany).
Dr Heindl emphasised that the current Tranche 1 Typhoon, operational at a handful of air bases in the four partner countries, is capable of air defence with only a very limited air-to-surface capability.

The Eurofighter Typhoon is an agile, single-seat (dual in trainer variant), multi-role aircraft optimized for high altitude supersonic air combat but also capable of operating at much lower levels in the air-to-ground roles.
The Eurofighter Typhoon is built by a four-nation consortium comprised of companies from the UK, Germany, Italy and Spain.
For these, Eurofighter Typhoon can be equipped to tackle both air-to-air and air-to-ground missions in a single sortie, switching between the two separate attack modes in flight, something not possible with the current Tornado GR4.
