Eurofighter 2000: Consequences and alternatives

Release date: 1996-01

BICC brief 5 “Eurofighter 2000: Consequences and Alternatives” deals with the development and procurement of fighter jets type Eurofighter 2000 representing the largest current arms project in Western Europe. The current restructuring of the aviation industry worldwide has raised some doubt about the industrial-policy decision of this purchase. A concentration of European capacities is overdue. The production of the Eurofighter in Germany hinders the inevitable concentration process on the European level without being able to offer a long-term perspective for the German aviation industry.
