Tornado Strike Flight (x2 Plastic)
Tornado Strike Flight
The Tornado strike-aircraft was developed as a joint project between Germany, Britain, and Italy. The main role of the Tornado is as an Interdictor Strike (IDS) aircraft.
The Tornado is armed with two internally mounted 27mm Mauser BK-27 auto-cannons and two AIM-9 Sidewinder missiles for self-defence. It can carry a variety of conventional bombs, as well as the MW-1 submunition dispenser that drops a variety of munitions, including the KB44 antitank bomblet.
The Tornado has a variable sweep-wing system. The pilot can change the sweep of the wings to change the aerodynamics of the aircraft. With the wings swept back drag was reduced during critical high-speed low-level dashes towards enemy positions. With the wings swept forward the Tornado takes on the characteristics of slower flight, allowing it to land and take off on short runways. Low-level flight was further enhanced by an innovative automatic terrain-following system.
