Summary

Jointly developed from the air forces of Germany, the UK, and Italy, the Tornado was introduced in 1979, with the last of the 992 constructed in 1999. With three main variants, it is a major component of four air forces worldwide. Tornadoes saw action in the Gulf War with the Italian and British air forces, and the type was unjustly criticized after the loss of 6 aircraft in this war.
