F-35 Dropped From German Competition

Recommended Posts

Airbus proposal for an ECR variant of Eurofighter to succeed Tornado in this role. They suggest 40 of these and 45 for nuclear delivery. Not sure whether this includes specific modifications beyond hanging some pods and missiles on it, particularly in the mentioned "long term evolution".

Reports that Germany intends to acquire 45 F-18 variants for the ECR and nuclear delivery role. The rest of the current ca. 90 Tornados will be succeeded by A2G-capable Eurofighters (in addition to replacing the first EF tranche, so a total buy of 90).
