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.
