    BAE to cut 2,000 jobs as Typhoon fighter orders stall

    BAE Systems' new boss will cut around 2,000 jobs at Britain's biggest defence contractor to tackle dwindling orders for the Typhoon fighter jet and the loss of revenue from Cold-War era aircraft nearing retirement. The Eurofighter Typhoon has won fewer orders this year than rivals such as the Rafale built by France's Dassault Aviation, and BAE is slowing production while it waits for Qatar to confirm its intention to buy 24 of the jets. The aircraft is the most important in BAE's portfolio, accounting for nearly a third of its air unit's sales last year.
