Thrust vectoring should have been on the Eurofighter Typhoon all along.

It was available in the nineties but the top heavy politcal project isn't exactly agile.

Similar to AESA radar. http://sitelife.aviationweek.com/ver...85c9.Large.jpg

The long development cycle (because of post cold war cuts) made the Eurofighter yesterdays technology tomorrow in some critical areas.

Add stealth.
