Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The British Aerospace EAP was a technology demonstrator aircraft developed as a private venture in the 1980s and which eventually formed the basis for the Eurofighter Typhoon.In 1982, British Aerospace exhibited a mockup of the Agile Combat Aircraft at the Farnborough Airshow as well as the Paris Air Show in May 1983. The ACA combined several years of private venture research by BAe, costing around 25 million, with similar studies done by MBB and Aeritalia. Plans were made by the three companies to produce two technology demonstrator aircraft based on ACA under the name "Experimental Aircraft Programme." The British Government announced it would make a financial contribution to the EAP but a lack of funding from the West German government meant that the planned second airframe was cancelled. The sole EAP aircraft first flew on 8 August 1986. The UK Ministry of Defence would eventually invest almost 80m in the EAP, the rest funded by BAeshow more
