'BAE built the best which is the eurofighter and only needs 300m to take off'

Is that 300m with a full weapons load, just air-to-air missile, or for a flying display? The latter is great and all but not really why people buy combat aircraft.

The Typhoon also suffers the slight issue that due to the angle of attack on finals to land the pilot wouldn't actually be able to see the aircraft carrier. Oh and the undercarriage would come through the wings doing a carrier landing.

But I'm sure BAE could sort those problems out for a very minor fee...
