Germany approves ‘Quadriga' Eurofighters

Germany has approved the procurement of additional Eurofighter combat aircraft for the Luftwaffe under the country’s Project Quadriga procurement plan.


The Luftwaffe is to retire its 38 Tranche 1 Eurofighters and replace them with Tranche 3 aircraft fitted to the new Quadriga configuration (Airbus)

The Luftwaffe is to retire its 38 Tranche 1 Eurofighters and replace them with Tranche 3 aircraft fitted to the new Quadriga configuration.

The country’s parliament cleared the launch of the multi-billion Euro project for 38 newbuild Eurofighters on 5 November, one day after the Defence Committee had given its approval.

“We [will] procure 38 Eurofighters [of the] the latest generation. Today the Haushaltsausschuss [Budget Committee] gave the green light to the German Bundestag. The aircraft will be delivered to the Bundeswehr for a modern and sustainable Luftwaffe,” the Federal Ministry of Defence (BMVg) tweeted. A contract is now expected to be signed in the coming days.

As previously reported by Janes , Project Quadriga will see the Luftwaffe replace 38 Tranche 1 Eurofighters, which will be sold to the international market, with new-build Tranche 3 aircraft (although Airbus officials are increasingly referring to these new aircraft as Tranche 4). These 31 single-seater (currently planned to comprise 26 firm orders with options for five more) and seven twin-seater aircraft will be equipped with the E-Scan Radar 1 active electronically scanned array (AESA) sensor and updated software.

While Airbus first briefed about Project Quadriga in November 2019, the German government announced its intent to award the contract in April. This planned procurement is part of a wider buy of 138 new aircraft for the Luftwaffe that will also include 55 Eurofighters and 30 Boeing F/A-18E/F Super Hornets for the Tornado replacement programme, and 15 Boeing EA-18G Growlers for the requirement for the Luftgestützte Wirkung im Elektromagnetischen Spektrum (luWES) electronic attack (EA) programme for NATO.

Germany closes on order for new batch of 38 Eurofighters

Germany is expected to sign in the coming days for a batch of 38 new Eurofighters to replace its earliest Tranche 1 examples.

Parliamentary approval for the deal was secured on 5 November, and Berlin will now proceed with what it refers to as Project Quadriga, says the defence ministry. Contract signature will happen later this month, it says.

Earliest examples of combat type will be retired

Deliveries of the next batch – which Germany describes as “Tranche 4” aircraft – are expected to run from 2025 to 2030; seven examples will be two-seaters and a further four will be instrumented and serve as part of a new test and evaluation centre it is creating for the type.

The Luftwaffe’s aircraft will be equipped with a new Hensoldt active electronically scanned array radar.

Speaking on a third-quarter results call today, Alessandro Profumo, chief executive of Eurofighter consortium member Leonardo, confirmed that Germany had “extended” its order “on this programme”.

Germany has previously indicated that it would order a total of 93 new Eurofighters: 38 covered by Project Quadriga, and 55 as partial replacement for the Luftwaffe’s Panavia Tornado fleet.

In addtion, Berlin intends to purchase 30 Boeing F/A-18E/F Super Hornets to carry nuclear payloads, plus 15 EA-18G Growler electronic warfare aircraft.
