The German parliament is discussing cutting it's the number of new Eurofighter aircraft it is planning to buy. Currently, Germany is due to receive 180 of the 620 Eurofighters being built. The two seat, two engine warplane is similar to the U.S. F-15E. Germany, no longer facing any nearby enemies, feels it doesn't need that many. Currently, each Eurofighter will cost $120 million, about twice what the F-15E costs. Many see it as a public works project, to provide jobs and build up the European military aircraft industry. Moreover, one of the seven prototype aircraft crashed in Spain last week during a test flight. The cause is thought to be faulty software.
