Eurofighter Typhoon FGR.4 – ZJ950/C ‘Charity’, RAF No. 29 Squadron, 1435 Flight, RAF Mount Pleasant airfield, Defence of the Falkland Islands

1:72 Scale.  Length: 8.75".  Wingspan: 6"

Limited Edition of 955 Models Worldwide

With the retirement of the RAF’s Panavia Tornado F.3 fleet, the Typhoon FGR.4 was required to undertake the role of Falklands Defender from September 2009. With four aircraft permanently operating from RAF Mount Pleasant airfield, the Typhoons of 1435 Flight are required to be on constant alert, providing the Islanders with round the clock protection from air attack. Postings to the South Atlantic are prized among Typhoon pilots, as the sparsely populated Islands allow the opportunity for some rather enthusiastic flying, much more so than can be practiced in the UK.

Retaining links to the famous Gloster Sea Gladiators that valiantly defended the island fortress of Malta during WWII, the four Typhoon Falkland Defenders carry the tail codes F, H, C and D to denote Faith, Hope, and Charity, with Desperation acting as a reserve aircraft. The 1435 Flight Typhoons are a significant upgrade to the capabilities of the Royal Air Force in defense of the Falkland Islands and only time will tell how suited these thoroughbred fighter aircraft are suited to the hostile environment of the South Atlantic.

The Eurofighter Typhoon is a highly capable and extremely agile multi-role combat aircraft and can be deployed as part of any aspect of air operations including supporting peace keeping, air policing and combat. With its tall sharply swept tail, delta wing and canards mounted before the wing, the Typhoon is easily recognizable and is a vital RAF aircraft. Ten Eurofighter Typhoons from RAF Coningsby and Leuchars took part in enforcing the no-fly zone over Libya in 2011.
