Typhoon at a glance

  • Typhoon is the largest Defence project in the MOD’s portfolio by value.
  • Armed with Paveway IV, Enhanced Paveway II, AMRAAM and ASRAAM missiles and a Mauser 27mm cannon, it can be deployed in high-intensity conflict, air policing and peacekeeping support operations.
  • Along with F-35 Lightning II, Typhoon will become the spear point of the UK’s combat air power.
  • The DE&S Fast Air Support Team (FAST) is focused on delivering Project Centurion – a series of capability upgrades to enable Typhoon to replace Tornado GR4 in combat air defence and offensive air support roles.
