According to the Guardian newspaper, the RAF is set to retire more than 50 of it's early Tranche 1 Eurofighter Typhoons as it cannot afford to upgrade them.

The defence budget needs to be cut by a further 1bn per year on top of the cuts that were recently announced.

The Typhoons that are earmarked for retirement / disposal cost 4.5bn and only entered service 3 years ago.
