BAE Systems says Tempest staff numbers to rise to 2,500 next year

Mon, 5th Oct 2020 10:29

LONDON, Oct 5 (Reuters) - British defence company BAE
Systems said that the number of people working on
Tempest, the UK-led project to build a new fighter jet with
Italy and Sweden, will rise to 2,500 by next year from more than
1,800 now.

BAE Systems, UK engine maker Rolls-Royce, European
missile maker MBDA and Italy's Leonardo are amongst
the companies working to develop Tempest, meant eventually to
replace the Eurofighter Typhoon from 2040.

The planned increase in Tempest staff was revealed by BAE
CEO Charles Woodburn in the Telegraph newspaper and the article
was published on BAE's website on Monday.
