Fun fact about the typhoon!
It's design was made to be pretty unstable during a stall so that if the pilot was being chased by an enemy, and couldn't shake him off, the pilot would just stall and the typhoon would quickly go into a directly down spin stall that the enemy would not be able to chase! I frikin love this Eurofighter.

Eurofighter is one of the most advanced fighting aircraft in the world, its a beats

I still think the f22 would win. The f35 and f15 are probably relatively comparable to the Eurofighter Typhoon.

You'll never know unless they get into an actual dogfight but my personal opinion i thibk the Eurofighter would wipe the floor with it, its one of the most advanced aircrafts in the world

You're right. All we can do is speculate. I'd still say the F22 would win. It was and still is ahead of it's time when it was created. It is way too expensive and that's why there are only ~127 in service at this time (the USAF is looking to buy 150 more) The Typhoon has about 355 in service if I can remember right. I honestly think the F-22 would basically be "easy mode" for anyone that is qualified to pilot it. It has stealth capabilities that surpass any other 5th generation aircraft. The F22 was created without compromise in performance with a mega high budget and long development It can also travel at mach 1.7 without it's afterburners (supercruise) (typhoon can go 1.5 without afterburners, great, but not greater than the f22). Both have great maneuverability. The F22 would shoot it down before it's even detected, but in the off chance the missile misses, it will be an extremely formidible adversary even to the typhoon. Take away the long range stealth kill capability and suddenly the eurofighter has a decent chance.

Make no mistake though, I have high respect for the Typhoon.

My 22 cents. Get it? 22. XD

when the Eurofighter is equipped with the meteor missile in three years. It may completely negate the F-22′s range advantage, both are seriously over powered pieces of equipment and to be honest doesnt matter which is batter just as long as they are fighting on our side and not against us lol

The only thing wrong is that there is a slight chance of a oxygen malfunction. High maintenance, and there's a small amount of them.

I see the F22 as Delta Force, and the Eurofighter as Navy SEALs.

Aren't F22 EXTREMELY dangerous for the pilots flying it? I heard there was some problems with the cockpit making it a deathtrap.

Flying the F22 isn't a death wish, but there is a more than desired chance of an oxygen systems malfunction.

Yes. But it' spretty unlikely. Still though, not relaible enough at this time for the standards of the U.S. Air Force.

Fun fact about the British: if it's a plane, they'll make it work.

That we will

another fun fact, since the development of f117 Nighthawk they've been basically designing any airplane to be unstable. Like you said it allows them better maneuvering capabilities and a rapid change of direction.
Problem no human could pilot such unstable aircraft which are, today, kept stable using computers and programs developed first on the aforementioned stealth fighter, better known ones are F15 (was introduced about 5 or 6 years before the f117) and F16 but they never got the same media coverage
