As has been explained before, ADV Tornado was for the RAF's long range, long-loiter time, heavy armament, two crew for heavy ECM requirement, UK/Eastern Atlantic air defence against Soviet bombers.
As for exports, Well Austria has Typhoons on order and Greece is expected to re-instated theirs once they are done with the Athens Olympics.
Rafale suffers from a lower initial production rate just for France, whereas Typhoon is initially of course for 4 airforces of the nations developing it.
But maybe if Germany had pulled out, it would not have been delayed so much, they held things up in 1985 and 1992/3.
Recently, Germany largely pulled out of the Meteor long range missile programme, (for Eurofighter and Rafale), but the UK took on most of the work they left.
Hence the A400M finally happening, Germany was getting a reputation for delay, while ordering more than they require to grab workshare.
If A400M had collapsed, they would have lost all credibility in collaborative projects, which is their industries lifeblood.
20 years ago, France was a partner in the initial studies for what separately became Typhoon and Rafale, but Dassault wanted the lion's share of the work and control, so the others told them to do it themselves, in any case the French wanted a lighter aircraft for their (then) smaller aircraft carriers.
You have to laugh when the UK gets moaned at for being on projects such as F-35. by French and German government officials, despite the fact the UK needs a STOVL Harrier replacement as do the USMC
, so what choice did they have?
Yet those who say BAE and R/R should not be involved with Lockheed Martin have been involved in the troubles with Rafale/Eurofighter and A400M, while the UK has a 100% record of not pulling out of or delaying collaborative European projects, quite apart from being involved in very many of them.
