Two Eurofighter Typhoons Reach Kuwait

The first Eurofighter Typhoons for the Air force of Kuwait recently landed in the country. These are the first two Typhoons in the framework of a wider order for a total of 28 aircraft that will be delivered to the Kuwait Air Force.
 
The Eurofighter Typhoon for the Kuwait Air Force feature a wide range of operational capabilities, built by Leonardo according to the specific requirements of the Kuwaiti Air Force. 
Leonardo represents with its activities about 36 per cent of the value of the entire programme, with its key role in the aeronautical components and the onboard electronics. The company also plays a key role in the evolution of the Eurofighter thanks to the new AESA (Active Electronically Scanned Array) radar that equips the Eurofighter Typhoons for Kuwait, which increases the aircraft’s performance and competitiveness. 
 
The ferry flight for the first two Kuwaiti Eurofighters was made possible thanks to the Italian Air Force’s essential support, which guaranteed the “Air to Air Refuelling trail”. This was achieved through a complex operational activity, which involved two KC-767 tankers from the Pratica di Mare 14th Squadron and two Eurofighters from the Grosseto 4th Squadron Fighters, which escorted the two Kuwait Air Force’s aircraft.
