BAE CEO says outlook for Typhoon fighter jets is strong

Thu 25th February, 2021 7:53am
LONDON, Feb 25 (Reuters) - The chief executive of British
defence company BAE Systems  BAES.  said the outlook for the
Eurofighter Typhoon military jet was the best it had been since
he took on the tob job in 2017. 
    "There's also a range of other European opportunities that
are being pursued at the moment so the outlook for Typhoon today
is frankly the best I've seen it since I've been been CEO of the
business," BAE CEO Charles Woodburn told reporters on Thursday. 
    Germany ordered 38 of the jets last November, and Woodburn
said that he expected further additional orders from Germany for
some Tornado replacements. 
    The Eurofighter consortium comprises BAE Systems as well as
European plane manufacturer Airbus  AIR.PA  and Italy's Leonardo
 LDOF.MI .
