BAE Systems is showcasing its advanced swing-role fighter, Eurofighter Typhoon, alongside its latest products at the ongoing Doha International Maritime Defence Exhibition & Conference (DIMDEX).
DIMDEX is taking place from 25-27 March 2014 at the Qatar National Convention Centre (QNCC).
BAE Systems’ presence at DIMDEX includes a Eurofighter Typhoon, in a multi-role configuration; the Hawk advanced jet trainer; the 57mk3 and 40mk4Naval Gun systems and LEMUR, a Remotely Controlled Weapon System. BAE Systems is also showcasing its capabilities in delivering cost-effective training, services and support.
“We are pleased to be attending DIMDEX for the first time - the flagship naval and defence industry event in Qatar– and our advanced military air and naval gun capabilities are a key feature of our stand. As a trusted defence and security partner throughout the Gulf region, BAE Systems is forging a strong bond with Qatar as the nation makes historic investments and progress towards its vision for the future. We would like to thank the Qatar Armed Forces for providing the perfect platform to connect with customers and decision makers in Qatar,” said Ben Bridge, Managing Director, Middle East & Africa for BAE Systems.
Due to the aircraft’s ability to switch from air-to-air to air-to-surface attack capabilities in the same mission, Eurofighter Typhoon remains the world’s most advanced new generation swing-role combat aircraft.
In November 2013, Eurofighter Typhoon joined Britain’s famous Red Arrows, one of the world’s premier aerobatic teams, in a public display over Doha’s Corniche as part of the Red Arrows’ wider Middle East tour.
