German Air Power


Fixed-Wing | Rotary-Wing Aircraft

As with most modern European airpowers, the Luftwaffe inventory features a balanced mix of fixed-wing and rotary-wing solutions. Some are of local origination while others are foreign-born systems. The spearhead remains the Eurofighter Typhoon single-seat, twin-engine multirole type with delta-wing planform and a proven track record. The service features the aircraft in its notbale Tranches from 1 to the more advanced 3. The Cold War-era PANAVIA Tornado series continues in service though its flying days are, indeed, numbered. The rotorcraft force is made up of American and French designs coupled with several aging British helos operated by the Navy service. The Sikorsky CH-53 fleet and Northrop T-38 Advanced Trainer Jet fleet are both due for retirement / replacement as is the Army Eurocopter Tiger series.
