Eurofighter: 21st Century Airpower

The proposal comes at a time when Turkey is seen favoring the Typhoon’s U.S. rival, the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF). The competitors aim to win an approximately $12 billion Turkish contract for more than 100 new-generation fighters.

Eurofighter officials said that the group is offering Turkey “equal partnership with equal voting rights as other member nations have,” and a $9 billion work share for its local defense industry if the Ankara government decides to buy 120 fighters, a $6 billion work share for 80 aircraft and a $3.2 billion work share for 40 aircraft.
