Re: Eurofighters for Egypt ?

I very much doubt Egypt would take someones used jets, and as far as I am aware while Spain is mulling over buying more Typhoons and Germany has at least formally stated it wishes to buy more. Italy hasn't said anything yet

Atlantique 2 has been used on bombing ops, but I'm fairly sure the first generation never did any.

The elephant walks are moral boosters, and make great photo opportunities. We did it with the Tornado on the day of the last 9 ship
