A third batch of Eurofighter Typhoon aircraft is to be bought for the RAF, it has been confirmed.

The Ministry of Defence said a contract would be signed after negotiations with partner nations Germany, Italy and Spain had concluded.



haven`t got the delay in payment details (as that was what was wanted) but you can bet that the A400M fiasco meant EADS had to agree to this.

basically the4 lead countries wanted to spread the cost of purchase over more years , EADS didn`t really want this , but the 4 lead countries have a heck of a barganing chip really.

Do you think this has any consequences for the size and timing of the JSF order?
