RAF tests Typhoon fighter enhancements

The Royal Air Force has conducted flight trials of enhancements for Eurofighter Typhoons at a facility of BAE Systems in Britain.

The Phase 2A enhancements, part of the full Phase 2 Enhancement package, include improvements to software and avionics, such as upgrades to radar, defensive aids systems and targeting pods to increase threat awareness, pilot safety and targeting capabilities.

Testing of the package will be ongoing throughout 2016 with weapons integration tests also scheduled for this year.
