Germany operates the second largest number of Eurofighters after the United Kingdom. It still refers to the type simply as the Eurofighter,
or EF-2000, rather than the Typhoon. Germany initially utilised the Eurofighter solely in the air-to-air role but is now developing its employment of the aircraft's multi-role capabilities. The Eurofighter is produced in single-seat (S) and twin-seat (T) variants.
The twin-seat variant is not used operationally, but only for training.

The Royal International Air Tattoo (RIAT) is the world's largest military air show, held annually over the third weekend in July,
usually at RAF Fairford in Gloucestershire, England in support of The Royal Air Force Charitable Trust.
The show typically attracts a total of 150.000 to 160.000 spectators over the weekend.
