The landmark engine was assembled at the facilities of Industria de Turbo Propulsores S.A. (ITP) in Madrid, Spain and delivered to the Spanish Air Force on May 23, to power the Eurofighter Typhoon fleet.

"This is a European collaboration journey of success!" said Clemens Linden, Managing Director of Eurojet as the program ended.

Nearly 790 engines are already in service in Eurofighter Typhoon fleets operated by the Air Forces of Germany, the United Kingdom, Italy, Spain, Austria and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
