Berlin (AFP) – Airbus and Dassault Aviation announced Wednesday they intend to team up on the development of the future French-German combat fighter, a project Berlin and Paris unveiled last year.

The two firms “have decided to join forces for the development and production of Europe’s Future Combat Air System,” which is intended to enter service by 2040, they said in a joint statement released at the Berlin air show.
