BAE chief executive Charles Woodburn said the contract, worth ?5bn to the company, was the start of a long-term relationship with Qatar and its armed forces. "This agreement is a strong endorsement of Typhoon's leading capabilities and underlines BAE Systems' long track record of working in successful partnership with our customers," he said. The Typhoon entered service with the RAF in 2007 to replace the ageing Tornado fleet.
