Austrian Eurofighters equipped with latest capability standard for Tranche 1 aircraft
All Austrian Armed Forces’ Eurofighters have now been equipped with enhanced hardware and software capability as part of an upgrade programme.
To optimize efficiencies, the work has been done in parallel with the aircrafts’ daily operations by employees of the EADS-division Cassidian at Zeltweg (Steiermark).
The programme included new systems software, the installation of modern equipment with higher performance capability levels, and a number of improvements implemented in cooperation with suppliers.
Since delivery of the first Eurofighter to Austria in July 2007, the 15 Austrian jets have accumulated more than 5,000 flying hours. Up to now, the whole Eurofighter fleet has completed more than 200,000 flying hours.
