The Eurofighter Typhoon Isn’t Stealthy, But It’s No Pushover
War Is Boring

The biggest issue for the Eurofighter is the lack of development focus. e.g. the AESA radar is very late. You really can’t sell a fighter these days unless the people funding the development looks like they are interested and add features in a timely manner. The French looks like they are heavily into the Rafale.

And it is time to question the strategic ability of the European war planners. With the F-35 increasingly looking like a lemon(https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/3035572-DOT-amp-E-AF-IOC-Memo.html), it would be prudent for the consortium to increase the number of aircraft in their inventories.

I doubt that the F-35 worries Putin, but the Eurofighter and the Rafale might worry him.
