Eurofighter eyes Bahrain For Typhoon Sales
Eurofighter Typhoon

After recent success in Kuwait, and earlier in Bulgaria, Oman and Saudi Arabia, Eurofighter is eyeing Bahrain as a possible new customer for its Typhoon aircraft.

Bahrain is looking to replace its ageing F-5 aircraft with a modern fighter and Eurofighter Typhoon with the latest version of Lockheed Martin’s F-16 could be likely contenders. Bahrain operates a fleet of F-16C aircraft, so a Lockheed Martin buy could be a good fit with its training and flight operations.

A full scale replica of Eurofighter Typhoon was exhibited alongside the Spitfire outside the exhibition hall, whilst models of Typhoon, Hawk and BAE 146 were on display during this year’s Bahrain international exhibition.
