Check out the Eurofighter Typhoon on display at the Dubai Airshow this week.
It’s a twin-engine jet, designed as an ‘air superiority fighter’ - meaning it was made to establish dominance over an enemy's air force
In 2017, 72 Typhoons were delivered to Saudi Arabia.
Its maximum speed at altitude is 1,550 mph.
At sea level, it can go up to 950 mph.
The jet’s combat radius for a ground attack is also impressive.
Latest editions of the Typhoon are better equipped to undertake air-to-surface strike missions
and are compatible with an increasing number of armaments and equipment.
