The Panavia Tornado was a joint venture between the UK, Germany, and Italy. Several versions were made for the three contributing countries and also for Saudi Arabia.

The Tornado is a Multi-Role Strike Aircraft and capable of performing several roles from precision bombing, tank busting, air defence suppression, through to reconnaissance and even anti-shipping strikes. It is a 'swing-wing' design which enables maximum lift with the wings 'forward' for take off and landing, combined with maximum speed with the wings swept back. It is capable of Mach 2.34 (1,511 mph) 'clean' and can be loaded 9,000 Kg (19,800 lb) of weapons on 8 points.

The Tornado is armed with one or two 27 mm Mauser Cannon, and can deliver almost any weapon including AIM-9 Sidewinder, AIM-120, AIM-132, ALARM, ASRAAM, most laser-guided bombs such as GBU-24, Brimstone, Storm Shadow, Cluster Bombs, Kormoran, as well as a wide variety or Electronic Countermeasure pods (ECM) and reconnaissance equipment.

This example is a Tornado GR1 ‘Luscious Lizzy’ of 15 Squadron RAF 1991.

I think it is officially 'Desert Pink' - from what I saw on the Wiki, Mountbatten Pink is quite dark, where this is more light and has a touch of Sand too...

Beautiful!

Glad to see you've recovered your interest in one of my favorite planes (even though it doesn't serve in our Ejército del Aire - Spanish Air Force- ... but nor do Eagles or Flankers, and I love them too :D).

And I've just noticed the pin-up in the front of this one! I thought the RAF didn't paint them anymore!

It was for the 1st Gulf War, and no they don't do pin-ups these days...

I just realised it was over two years ago since I first did a Tornado!

uh ok!

i couldn't find a pic of an italian tornado that took part to the locusta mission, anyway the italian livery was yellow (sand) on the upper and lateral surfaces, and alluminium on the lower surfaces, the same for fuel tanks and kormoran missles and pods... probably you already know what i said=D

Now i'm sure that your is an optimus work=D well done!
