Eurofighter consortium has pitched its Typhoon fighter jet for Polish air force's future combat aircraft requirement at MSPO show in Kielce from 5-8 September.
"Eurofighter Typhoon augments existing capabilities and further complements a powerful deterrence against any potential threat to Poland’s borders. The Typhoon with the [Lockheed Martin] F-16 Block 52+ will be a perfect combination," said head of marketing Raffael Klaschka.
The Typhoon is in service in Austria, Germany, Italy, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Spain and the UK and on order for Kuwait. It has been active in supporting recent NATO air policing operations over the Baltic states and Black Sea region.
A selection by Warsaw "would bring new and additional opportunities to Poland from both from a military and economic perspective. Raffael Klaschka added.
“From assembly and manufacturing to support and maintenance. All options are on the table.” Klaschka said.
"Poland can integrate and certificate weapons, pods and other equipment," he added.
“we believe we can deliver an attractive and cost-effective solution for Poland and are able to co-operate with every company." He noted.
