The maker of Typhoon fighters, combat vehicles and Astute Class nuclear-powered attack submarines, has been affected by a German ban announced in 2019 on exporting arms to Saudi Arabia. The export ban has put a question mark over a multi-billion pound deal to sell 48 Eurofighter Typhoon jets to Riyadh, built by a BAE-led consortium that also includes MTU Aero Engines <MTXGn.DE> and Airbus <AIR.PA>.

BAE Systems <BAES.L> said improvements in its maritime and combat vehicle operations helped drive a rise in first-half earnings against a backdrop of geopolitical uncertainty that has dampened hopes for a major order from Saudi Arabia. Britain's biggest defence company said on Wednesday it was sticking to a forecast for a mid-single digit rise in full-year earnings per share on 2018's 42.9 pence, underpinned by an improved operational performance and a slightly lower tax rate.

"We will assess the result of the UK Government's reconsideration of its decision-making on the basis set out by the court, once it has been made," it said, adding it complied with all relevant export control laws.
The countries and companies behind Europe's Eurofighter Typhoon fighter jet have agreed to spend 53.7 million euros (£47.8 million) to study the long-term evolution of the advanced fighter jet and its engine, they said on Wednesday. The study contracts will span 19 months for the aircraft, and nine months for the engine, identifying potential technology enhancements for the jet's mission systems, engine, human machine interface and electronic warfare equipment. The work is aimed at keeping the Eurofighter Typhoon fleet operationally effective for combat for decades to come, even as Europe begins work on two rival next-generation aircraft that are slated to enter service in 2040, officials said.
