    Austrian Eurofighter Typhoons equipped with latest capability standard for Tranche 1 aircraft

    All the Eurofighter Typhoon aircraft in service with the Austrian Armed Forces have been upgraded and equipped with enhanced hardware and software capability.

    The aircraft were upgraded within a two-year program that saw the 15 Austrian Typhoons receive the Service Release Proposal 4.3 standard software, as well as new radios, GPS (Global Positioning System) and IFF (Identification Friend or Foe) systems.

    The Austrian Air Force’s fighter jets are used for air defense purposes, with a Quick Reaction Alert (QRA) cell ready to scramble for air-policing purposes at Zeltweg airbase.

    Since delivery of the first Eurofighter to Austria in July 2007, the 15 Austrian Typhoons have logged more than 5,000 out of a overall +200,000 flying hours accumulated by the whole Eurofighter fleet of six countries (Germany, Great Britain, Italy, Spain, Austria and Saudi Arabia).

    5000 hours is quite pathetic for 15 jets over 5 years. Even our Mig-21s do twice the numbers, let alone other larger aircraft.

    No chance.

    A MRCA equivalent EF will be ready only in 2018 vs Rafale's 2013.
