Airbus delivers upgraded Eurofighter to Spanish AF

The upgrade developed by Airbus features modifications developed under Spain's Operational Flight Program 02 (OFP-02).

Airbus has delivered the first upgraded Tranche 1 Eurofighter to the Spanish Air Force. The upgrade was carried out at Airbus facilities in Getafe and involved the introduction of hardware modifications which support Spain's Operational Flight Program 02 (OFP-02) developed by the Armament and Experimental Logistics Centre (CLAEX).

The upgrade developed by Airbus features modifications that integrate Tranche 2 and Tranche 3 equipment on the aircraft, including a Computer Symbol Generator, Digital Video and Voice Recorder, Laser Designator POD and Maintenance Data Panel.

This first single-seat Eurofighter (serial number SS003), to be followed by a second two-seat aircraft currently undergoing the upgrade, will be used initially by CLAEX as a test aircraft for the qualification of these new capabilities that will be implemented on the Spanish AF’s fleet of 15 Tranche 1 Eurofighters.
