Since there's been some talk about TAW lately..there is some very good info (and some screen shots) of DID's upcoming sim "Typhoon".

Well worth the read.

...Except possibly surviving that dogfight. Nothing beats surviving.

Definately Major.. Surviving those things get tricky esp. in "hard" I wonder how the typhoon will compete against an F-22 or an EF-2000. Its a tough battle ahead... but its gonna be fun! later

I think EF2000 sounds better than TYPHOON.

Ugh!!! How can you that? EuroFighter 2000 sounds like some cheezy cleaning product from Europe (or so they will claim). The kind that might see on some late night infomercial with some hyper guy in a British accent (no offense intended towards the Britsh..that just the crap we get here in the states. )

"...Eurofighter 2000..fights grease like magic!!!"

"..and if you order in the next 15 minutes, we'll send you not one but TWO bottles of Eurofighter 2000 for just $19.95

LOL!! nice one...but now i'm going to have to think up somthing about the British comment!

Peronally i think EF2000 sounded good (as long as you don't say Eurofighter...names not as good as numbers...take the CBR-1100XX!)

Please excuse my mistake i got that name confused with tornado, which is is an older plane.. does anyone know if the typhoon will really be more manuverable than the 22 or did DID just make it that way?

If the Typhoon really is more agile than the F22, some yankee pilots will eat their helmets. I guess that it's a British manner of showing off, or a developement thing (F22 more real modelled than the ef2000). And the name typhoon? What is wrong with Spitfire Mk 43?

Do you know if the EF-2000 has thrust vectoring? Theres a big player in manuverability. The F-22 has quite a large wing area, so im doubting the performance im getting here ;^)

At present the real EF2000 does not have thrust vectoring ... which is a little bit strange, because one of the players, DASA, was one of the partners in the X-31 program that did a lot of work with thrust vectoring.

My source is a friend of my father's who is one of the DASA test pilots (a Canadian ex-RCAF pilot who used to fly CF-18s). Apparently there's a lot of Europolitics going on with the project ... the different consortium members each requiring their piece of the pie. My father's friend says that the EF2000 is a great plane but that it would be truly top-notch with thrust vectoring.

I have heard it said that the Typhoon 2000 would lose a LOT of it's nimbleness from all the extra weight that a Tvectoring systems would add. Also, it seems only of use in very limited close knife fights where really you should extend from anyway. I have also heard that the canards and much lighter weight REALLY make this very manuverable, to the point of being better than an F-22.

The counter point to that is that neither plane has even been finalised for production, most of it's flight performance is rated secret anyways, so for us to compare is an exercise in futility.

Thrust vectoring is scheduled for the stage 2 of the Typhoon developement, as well as some degree os stealthiness.
Keep in mind that TW is usefull to point you nose at the enemy faster for the kill, but this would bleed energy like hell, exactly as it happens in nowdays knife combat "Jaw rates!".
With or without TW, a cow will always be a cow.
