Equipment within the Royal Air force

Welcome to the technical information centre of the Royal Air Force. Here you will find details of all of the aircraft and weapons currently in use.

The RAF have recently introduced into operational service the world-class Typhoon. Alongside the aircraft come the next generation of air-to-air missiles, and a new range of air-to-ground precision guided weapons to give it even greater flexibility in terms of choice of weapon, delivery height and launch distance from target.

Further ahead, there will be a need to replace the Tornado and the Harrier, therefore, the RAF has become an active partner in the development of the new Joint Strike Fighter, which is due to enter service in 2012. The RAF is also considering future options which could include a mix of manned and unmanned aircraft.
