|Quoting EBJ1248650 (Thread starter):
've seen two pictures at a.net of the first Austrian Typhoon and it's identified as a T1. Is that an individual indentification (second airplane would be T2) or is it a type ID. Thinking "T" means trainer, I'm wondering if the plane isn't supposed to be identified as F1 or, using the British system, as an F.2, with the trainers being identified as T.1s.

I was just woundering and I am not knocking the Eurofighter I think its a good aircraft, but why would Austria need such a large and complex fighter to protect its airspace? I would think some Gripens and Basic Superhornets would have managed that just fine. That would be like the US selling the FA-22 to Monaco.
