The Panavia Tornado entered service with the Italian Air Force (Aeronautica Militare) in the early 1980s. The first squadron to be equipped with the Tornado was 154 Gruppo, at Ghedi Air Base under the 6 Stormo "Diavoli Rossi" ('Red Devils'). The 154 Gruppo reached full strength in 1984 when they had received all 18 aircraft and, after extreme training, the 154 achieved full combat readiness by October 1985.

The Panavia Tornado was a joint project between the UK, West Germany and Italy to produce a two-seat, dual-engine aircraft with variable-sweep wings. The Tornado took its maiden flight on August 14, 1974 with the first aircraft delivered to the German Air Force on July 27, 1979. The variants of the Tornado are: IDS (interdictor / strike), ECR (electronic combat / reconnaissance) and ADV (air defense variant) interceptor. By the end of production in 1998 there had been 992 aircraft of all versions built of which 745 were IDS variants.
