Royal Air Force declared its Typhoon jets multi-role capable today

The Royal Air Force has declared its Typhoon jets multi-role capable today. The RAF Typhoons can now carryout precision Ground Attack as well as Air Defence tasks. The declaration, which was made at the home base of the Typhoon Force, RAF Coningsby in Lincolnshire, represents a major milestone in the development of the state-of-the-art aircraft.
Commander-in-Chief of the RAF, Air Chief Marshal Sir Clive Loader said:”The declaration of Typhoon being Multi-role capable is a truly significant step in the development of this remarkable aircraft…This latest capability upgrade gives the Royal Air Force the most operationally flexible aircraft it has ever had.”
Typhoon aircraft took part in a very successful deployment to the USA in spring for trials and front-line training culminating in Exercise Green Flag, which is a large USAF and US Army exercise that involves Close Air Support to troops. The Typhoons proved their ability to deploy to environments that are representative of current operational theatres. During this deployment the aircraft demonstrated exceptional serviceability by achieving 99% of planned sorties.
