About This Content

The Eurofighter Typhoon is a multi-role combat aircraft which first entered service in 2004. It is the result of Europe’s largest military collaborative programme. The Eurofighter fleet has accumulated more than 160,000 flying hours around the world, and are featured in seven different international air forces.

The Eurofighter add-on for FSX: Steam Edition includes the single-seat Eurofighter Typhoon, which features the signature delta wing with reverse camber roots, flaperons and foreplanes. Six accurate ordnance load-outs give you the opportunity to experience this swing-role aircraft in its various configurations. The aircraft features numerous animations including wheel chocks, pre-flight flags, engine covers and a ground power unit. Even the seeker heads on the Paveway and Maverick are animated!

The fully functional virtual cockpit features accurate multi-function displays with a variety of pages for monitoring the aircraft systems, and the collimated and conformal HUD with real-world symbology will provide you with excellent situational awareness.
