The military aerospace supply chain is focused on delivering excellence - constantly analysing, seeking improvement and optimising all aspects of logistics and management. Given a product assembled two to four years after first orders are placed and lead-times which are hugely variable for individual components the challenge is daunting.

Further add the requirement to produce a unique modern combat aircraft on four separate assembly lines in the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy and Spain.

Design and build it by a consortium of four national entities (themselves cooperative ventures) each responsible for the assembly of its own national aircraft, but each also building the same component parts for all 620 planned aircraft.

A concept and execution daunting in its scope and complexity - yet which has delivered the Eurofighter Typhoon.

The Typhoon is now in service with No. 29 Squadron Royal Air Force who flies the airplane operationally and has the honour to showcase its extreme capabilities as the RAF Eurofighter Typhoon Display Team.

Transaction Mercantile is proud to be a title sponsor supporting the Typhoon Display Team 2006.

Demonstrating a remarkable aircraft...

...Epitomising supply chain logistics cooperation and excellence.
