Eurofighter & Qatar: present and future
This 2022 many events will happen in Qatar. The best known: the Football World Cup to be held in November. But this summer will be a key date. The first Eurofighter Typhoon will arrive to the Qatari armed forces. This event will be repeated at least 23 more times through these years.
The Qatari armed forces are not the most highlighted in the Middle East. They are in the 77th place (out of 142) in world military power. According to the rankings. A very low position compared to its neighbours: UAE (36th) and Saudi Arabia (20th).
We can have a quick overview of this problem by looking at the number of active combat aircraft. It is 48. However, the number of combat aircraft pending delivery rises to 137. Considering the orders pending to its final approval.
