BAE Systems has delivered the first EUROFIGHTER TYPHOON to the Qatari Armed Forces during an official handover ceremony in Warton, UK. The fighter is due to be transferred to Qatar before the end of August, and according to BAE Systems, one of its first missions will be to help protect the World Cup starting on 20 November. The event marks an important milestone in the programme, following the signing of a US$6.7 billion contract in December 2017 between the Government of Qatar and BAE Systems for the procurement of 24 EUROFIGHTER TYPHOON and nine HAWK training aircraft, as well as a six-year availability support service.
