Description
Description

This is a very detailed model of the Eurofighter Typhoon (EFA), including four texture sets and 8 weapon systems. The model itself is very lightweight, with just 15,400 faces without armament, allowing animation of much more scenery geometry or additional models simultaneously, and increasing render speed dramatically.

All major components are animate-able. Armament includes:

AGM-88 HARM in high detail
AIM-7 Sparrow in medium detail
AIM-9X Sidewinder in medium detail
AIM-120 AMRAAM in high detail
BL-755 Cluster bomb in high detail
Brimstone Anti-Armor Missiles in high detail
GBU-16 Paveway in medium detail
Matra R.550 Magic 2 in high detail
Triplet sub-harness
Center Tank

Included in the main model mesh are the AIM-9X Sidewinder and the Brimstone Anti-Armor Missiles. Other weapons are included in ZIP files within the main product archive, and can be imported in to the model scene and parented as needed. Each weapon contains anywhere from 500 to 3000 poly faces.

Textures

Color, Specular, and Bump maps are provided. Photoshop templates are provided for easy modification of markings or designation. The main model is textured for the RAF version, and other textures are downloaded as extras.

Textures include:

UK - RAF Version
Germany - Luftwaffe Version
Italy - Italian Version
Saudi - Saudi Royal Air Force Version

History

In the mid 1970s France, Germany and the UK established the European Combat Aircraft programme (ECA). In 1979, following differing requirements (particularly the French requirement for carrier compatibility,) British Aerospace (BAe) and Messerschmitt-Blkow-Blohm proposed the European Combat Fighter (ECF). The development of different national prototypes and continued differences over specification lead to cancellation of the ECF programme in 1981.

The maiden flight of the Eurofighter prototype took place on March 27, 1994 (then just known as the Eurofighter EF 2000). Messerschmitt-Blkow-Blohm chief test pilot Peter Weger took the prototype on a test flight around Bavaria. The 1990s saw significant arguments over work share, the specification of the aircraft and even participation in the project.

When the final production contract was signed in 1997, the revised procurement totals were as follows: UK 232, Germany 180, Italy 121, and Spain 87. Production was again allotted according to procurement: British Aerospace (37%), DASA (29%), Aeritalia (19.5%), and CASA (14%).

The project has been named and renamed a number of times since its inception, having been known as EFA (European Fighter Aircraft), Eurofighter, EF2000 (Eurofighter 2000), and most recently Typhoon.
