Overview:

The Euro-Fighter-2000 Naval Edition Hurricane II is a modified naval version of the EF-2000 Typhoon. The Euro-Fighter would operate from carriers on a Short Take-Off but Arrested Recovery (STOBAR) basis, using a 'ski jump' ramp for aircraft launch and arresting gear for conventional landing.

The modifications required for the EF-2000NE to do this are a new, stronger landing gear, a modified arrestor hook, localized strengthening on some fuselage sections near the landing gear and the introduction of a thrust-vectored variant of the Eurojet EJ200 engine.
