In a week when Eurofighter is battling to save its Saudi sale through BAE Systems, a reminder of the Typhoon's capabilties has emerged as an insider has posted a promotional video clip on a popular video sharing website.
UK defence companies have written to the UK's trade ministry to ask for a speedy resolution into an ongoing corruption inquiry into the Al-Yamamah deal between the BAE and the Saudi government. The middle Eastern kingdom has reportedly threatened to pull out of a deal to acquire Typhoons as a result of the probing of senior Saudi officials.
It is likely the country's defence video, along with other interested parties, would have seen this promotional video, that was until now reserved for prospective customers. Enjoy for yourself the aerobatic display of the Typhoon (below).Eurofighter has also made available an interactive game on its site where you can try and park the Typhoon.
