Could anyone suggest any good books on the Eurofighter program? Technical emphasis is preferred. I couldn't find any mention on the site except a German language book which isn't particularly useful for me. What is the Aerofax booklet on Eurofighter like?

Thanks

The Aerofax book isn't all that bad, but at this point it is a bit dated.

The German book is the best available. The Aerofax is indeed outdated.

There's definitely a niche for an enterprising author to fill there.

I didn't find the Aerofax too bad. It's got lot's of detail on EAP, the prototypes and the general story. It just stops at the end of the 90s and only has a small section on future development. It would be nice to have details on the preliminary aircraft in Tranche 1 and 2 and the various Block differences but most of that is available elsewhere now. I think it was Combat Aircraft Monthly that did a long feature a month or so back that focused on the more this. Of course, there's limits as to what is in the public domain.
