Eurofighter’s official blog makes an interesting claim today about a recent dissimilar fighter exercise in the Canaries involving Spanish Typhoons and US Air Force F-15s. The blog says:
In an interview on the exercise, Major Juan Balesta, the 41-year oldCommander of the 111 Squadron stressed that a two-ship formation ofEurofighters involved in a dogfight simulation “against” the F-15senjoyed full control of the engagement. The Typhoons managed to smash aformation of eight F-15s which had the role of the attacker with thefirst Eurofighter jet managing to “shoot down” four F-15 fighter jets.The second Eurofighter managed to disable three F-15 jets. Eventuallythe pilots were using the Eurofighter Typhoon to full capacity andtaking advantage of its enormous capabilities. Trump that.
This apparently refers to an exercise that ended last March. Who thinks Eurofighter is just trying to compensate for something, like a rumored beat-down by Dassault Rafale’s at Al Dhafra?
