|There has been a lot of debate as to what kinds of upgrades that will be made to the Typhoons in the coming tranche 3 deliveries, I’m here to discuss what some of those may be and if so what kind of effects may they have upon the aircraft both positive and negative and the general outcome of what we feel the upgrades will do for the plane.
Now there seems to be three thins in particular that look the most likely to be fielded, these proposals have either been confirmed or in their development or testing stages, these are as follows:
Conformal fuel tanks (RAF only as of yet)
AESA CAESER radar
However there have also been other proposals ranging from upgrading the radar absorbent coating to give it a slightly lower signature and a newer engine I believe called the EJ220. But it is not just upgrades in terms of the plane itself, the weapons which it is able to field are also being considered as soon when finally developed the plane will be capable of carrying the new MBDA missile.
So your thoughts and suggestions please
