UROFIGHTER TYPHOON VERSUS SUKHOI-30
If you claim you have the best plane and pilots... it's time to prove it !
This article is published in Fuerza Aerea Magazine by Dutch Aviation Media. We like to show the photographic impressions below.
Enjoy our impressions, and article below on this page
At first sight Typhoon and SU-30 seem to be totally different. Here the Typhoon on the taxiway...
... and here in full glory in the air.
The Eurofighter (EFA 2000) is designed and built by a European consortium of several companies
The SU-30MKI is a dual-seat dual-role all weather fighter for air-air and air-surface deep interdiction missions
Both planes do differ in size and shape...
...the Indian SU-30's are manned with two pilots in contradiction to the one pilot in the Typhoon
They do seem to have a very different class.Still they'll meet eachother in the air.
A confrontation starts with one against one.
A Typhoon rides out...
...turn right to the runway...
Compare both cockpits of the single- and twin-seater Typhoon...
...and the large 'Pilots-office' of the Flanker.
...This kind of camo you don't often see...
...a treat for the eyes of the photographer.
Better view at the dual-seat Typhoon.
During the exercise also two-ship formations will 'fight' eachother...
...longer flights including air-air refuelling with the 'King Elephant' tanker...
...finally a battle of 4 against 4 is trained.
Heavily armed long distance flying Typhoon...
...carrying different kinds of GBU's.
