Ministrul Stephane Beemelmans a anuntat in Parlament anularea comenzii, fara a oferi detalii despre motivele care au condus la aceasta decizie.
Luftwaffe are in prezent 112 Eurofighter-e in dotare si, se pare, ca va ramane doar cu acestea.
Deputy Defense Minister Stephane Beemelmans told the parliamentary defense committee that the last 37 jets had been cancelled, the source said.
The cancellation means Airbus Group (AIR.PA), which makes the Eurofighter, will miss out on business. In 2011 the cost of a single Eurofighter in the first shipment of jets was put at 57 million euros.
Originally, the German military wanted 180 Eurofighters but there has never been a decision or a contract for the final tranche.
