BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:30 P.M.) – The Qatari regime is raising billions of dollars to purchase Eurofighter Typhoon combat jets, the Reuters News Agency reported, citing two sources familiar with the deal.

According to the Reuters report, the deal to purchase these Typhoon combat jets will cost Qatar approximately $4 billion.

The financing for Qatar’s purchase of the British BAE Systems’ combat jets will be reportedly backed by export credit agencies.

“The new Typhoons will advance Qatar’s strategic efforts towards stability. The method and mechanism of payment has not been decided yet,” a Qatari official told Reuters.

This move by the Qatari regime comes just a few months after the Saudi King allegedly sent a letter to the French President Emmanuel Macron about preventing the small Gulf nation from purchasing the Russian S-400 systems.

France is not in the Eurofighter consortium. If the German company DASA (which was the fusion of all german aircraft makers : Messerschmitt, Dornier, Focke-Wulf, Junkers, etc) and the Spanish CASA merged with Airbus, which is no more a French company but an EU one (HQs are in the Netherlands, BTW), French facilities don’t participate the building and actually, are not even tooled for this purpose. Thus, BAe is the primary contractor, despite EF-2000 is the last Messerschmitt (TKF90, a 1972 concept) while the single engined version of the twin engine Brit project became the Gripen (BAe P.1180 project).
