typhoons frame ok for another ~ 40 years

it definitely does need new engines. maybe hide the ir sensor and make the wienerpit seamless as pic related. but the way they deem it obsolete against 5th gen i don't understand. it's fine.

    there is a 5x factor difference in radar detection range between this and a 5th gen, it's like trying to fight against EF with a 80s era Su-27

    It's ok if you don't have to face enemy 5th gen fighter/ modern sam and if you also have lots of f-35 in your fleet.
    it's the same reason why the f-15 is still getting used

      F-15 has a brutally murderous combat record, though. She lusts for MiGger blood.

      I mean it's better than nothing, but only Saudis have enough money to make T1 useful again

        If you don't see the issues with this statement I honest to God don't know what to tell you except ask your government to buy more F-35.

        Reminder that there's an alternate universe out there, where Greece bought 90 Eurofighter Typhoons

        they are retiring them cause they cant be upgraded to tranche 3

        >they are retiring them cause they cant be upgraded to tranche 3
        Wrong, that's because of structural damage caused by bad manufacturing which considerably lowers the lifespan, as explained in

        .
        Additionally, tranches were not supposed to be block-exclusive at first. Normally, all T1 should be brought to P3E standard, in the same way older F-16s can be retrofitted into block 70 easily. Let's not of course bring that other Eurocanard as to not derail the thread.
        The Typhoon program managers have no excuses for wasting money this way.
        There's only hope the T3 and T4 will correct these mistakes and finally allow the jet to go through the motions of upgrading without being sent to the scrapyard after less than 20 years of operations. The market awaits this. Will the consortium deliver? Or will it be too late? Especially if the Tempest becomes the next go-to offer?

          The Typhoon FGR4, is fully the equal of the F-15E in the strike role.

    it is in a straight up fight, but there's still things a 4/4.5 gen can do that doesnt involve pitting it in that kind of fight, which is why every country including russia, china, and the us are still going to operate them for at least the next few decades.

    Typhoon is fine for what it is, but, it won't be remotely relevant in 40 years. Fighters don't age very well, and even a 20 year old design will start to show some age.

    Typhoon ultimately represents why you should never try to design an aircraft with Germans.

    Typhoon will never get a seamless bubble canopy since it’s made in Germany and Germans don’t have neither the knowledge nor chemical industry for that
