10 Detail Differences – T1A vs T3 Typhoon T3 has the PIRATE FLIR (Forward Looking Infra-Red) sensor mounted on the port-side of the nose Typhoon T1A / T3 are primarily used for pilot conversion training but are fully combat-capable All Typhoon T1s had a modification to the fuel system to become T1As

11 Detail Differences – F2 vs FGR4 Typhoon FGR4 has the PIRATE FLIR (Forward Looking Infra- Red) sensor mounted on the nose FGR4 upgrade introduced air-to- surface capability to Typhoon. All F2s will be upgraded to FGR4 Typhoon F2 and FGR4 are the frontline combat variant of Typhoon. Typhoon F2 is used in the air-to- air and Quick Reaction Alert (QRA) roles only

12 Typhoon Manufactured by the Germany, Italy, Spain and the UK via the Eurofighter consortium High performance, single seat, multi-role fighter aircraft designed to perform air superiority and ground attack missions with a full range of air-to-air and air-to-surface weapons. Twin-engine delta wing design with canard foreplanes and fly-by-wire controls for maximum agility Advanced avionics including ECR-90 CAPTOR Radar, Helmet-Mounted Symbology System (HMSS) helmet- mounted sight and voice control input.
