Arrow Typhoon

Rafael Advanced Defense Systems..

Through the Mach Loop at Low Level..
The Hawker Typhoon (Tiffy in RAF slang), was a British single-seat fighter-bomber, produced by Hawker Aircraft..When the Luftwaffe brought the formidable Focke-Wulf Fw 190 into service in 1941, the Typhoon was the only RAF fighter capable of catching it at low altitudes; as a result it secured a new role as a low-altitude interceptor..The Eurofighter Typhoon is a twin-engine, canard-delta wing, multirole fighter..The UK had identified a requirement for a new fighter as early as 1971.. The AST 403 specification, issued by the Air staff in 72, resulted in the P.96 conventional "tailed" design, which was presented in the late 70s.. The Typhoon is a highly agile aircraft at both supersonic and low speeds, achieved through having an intentionally relaxed stability design..The Typhoon features a glass cockpit without any conventional instruments..The Captor-M has 3 working channels, one intended for classification of jammer and for jamming suppression..In the event of pilot disorientation, the Flight Control System allows for rapid and automatic recovery by the simple press of a button..Traditionally each sensor in an aircraft is treated as a discrete source of information; however this can result in conflicting data and limits the scope for the automation of systems, hence increasing pilot workload..The Eurofighter is produced in single-seat and twin-seat variants.. The twin-seat variant is not used operationally, but only for training..A technology demonstration aircraft, the British Aerospace EAP, first took flight on 6 August 86; the first prototype of the finalised Eurofighter made its first flight on 27 March 1994...

A typhoon is a mature tropical cyclone that develops in the western part of the North Pacific Ocean between 180° and 100°E.. This region is referred to as the Northwestern Pacific Basin, and is the most active tropical cyclone basin on Earth, accounting for almost one-third of the world's annual tropical cyclones..According to Hesiod's Theogony, Typhon "was joined in love" to Echidna, a monstrous half-woman and half-snake, who bore Typhon "fierce offspring".. In the Orphic tradition, just as Set is responsible for the murder of Osiris, Typhon leads the Titans when they attack and kill Dionysus, who also became identified with the earlier Osiris..Dante Alighieri's Inferno mentions him amongst the Biblical and mythological giants frozen onto the rings outside of Hell's Circle of Treachery... right, just relax, Amigo.. You wanna talk - we'll talk.. I'm a sucker for great conversation..I don't wanna talk to you! Now you bring in the television cameras in here now!..
