Germany Pushing on Eurofighter Selection

Fox2 Magazine reports that amidst an economic crisis and despite the state of the Greek economy it seems that the Eurofighter consortium has been actively pushing for the selection of its fighter by the Hellenic Air Force. The promotion has been taken on by the German side which reportedly is exerting pressure for the Eurofighter Typhoon to be selected without a competition taking place. The difference between the current drive and earlier attempts to sell the fighter to Greece is the aggressiveness of the consortium representatives. Furthermore, these representatives make use of every opportunity to stress that the Eurofighter is capable of detecting and tracking the US made F-35. This claim is clearly aimed at the potential Greek selection.
