Diecast Aircraft Information  Diecast Aircraft Information MetalWings Diecast Aircraft Reference by Dauntless Aviation
The Eurofighter Typhoon is a twin-engine multi-role fighter built by a European consortium made
up of the UK, Germany, Spain and Italy. With 4 countries involved it is necessary to have what
they call Tranches (similar to contracts) that are broken down into batches and blocks. The
development of the Eurofighter began in 1983 with the prototype maiden flight of the Eurofighter
taking place on March 27, 1994. The first fully equipped Tranche 2 Instrumented Production
Aircraft (IPA7) took to the skies on January 16, 2008.


The original No. 12 Squadron was formed in 1915. Between 1926 and 1931 they were equipped
with the Fairey Fox bomber that had a very shiny cowling so they earned the nickname “Shiny
Twelve”. Their fox head squadron badge also came from the Fox. In July 2018 No. 12 Squadron
traded their Panavia Tornado GR4 for the Eurofighter Typhoon to become a joint RAF/Qatari
Emri Air Force squadron tasked with training QEAF staff to be proficient when Qatar received
their 24 Typhoons. Typhoon ZK361 was built in 2014 c/n BS122.
