Serving the RAF well throughout its 25 years of service the Tornado F3 was the RAF’s standard interceptor throughout this period; guarding the UK’s airspace from their base at RAF Leuchars, Scotland, against any potential intrusions from aircraft such as Russian "Bear" reconnaissance aircraft.
The Panavia Tornado was jointly developed by the United Kingdom, West Germany and Italy in three primary versions: the Tornado IDS (Interdictor /Strike) fighter-bomber, the ECR (Electronic Combat/Reconnaissance) and the ADV (Air Defense Variant) Interceptor. The Tornado is one of the world’s most sophisticated and capable interdiction and attack aircraft with a large payload, long range and high survivability.
