It'd be an overexpensive and card limited option which has its job done for cheaper by the KWS and in Eurocorps also has its job done better by the Rafale. Additionally I don't think that Germany ever adopted the AIM-9M so the Eurofighter would be considerably worse than the UK one, comparable to Gripen but with more missiles and therefore more expensive.
Well Germany was still part of the ASRAAM project and the US was still going to buy it would like the RAF typhoon to get ASRAAM.
I suppose you could add ASRAAM on the Eurofighters but that makes them yet more expensive and still worse than the Rafale.
But still better than the friggin "look how I shoot all my 3 AMRAAMs into oblivion dad!" F-4 KWS and that's the point.
I understand it isn't an F-15C, or a Su-27PU, but ffs... that thing is a bad joke 75% of the time.
This thing is nothing but frustrating.
