This simulation is based on one of the most distinguished Tornado GR1s to have served with the Royal Air Force – ZA465 ‘Foxy Killer’. Having flown the most sorties of any of the Tornado fleet in the Gulf War, it was then assigned to the famous 617 ‘Dambusters’ squadron before being preserved for posterity by the Imperial War Museum Duxford.
The Tornado GR1 is a tandem (twin seat) multi-role combat aircraft. Its primary role is high speed, low level ground attack, but it is also capable of long range, high altitude interception and ground attack. It can carry out these roles in any weather using a wide range of weapons, external stores and sensors, including a terrain following radar. The Tornado is fitted with cantilever shoulder wings with variable sweepback between 25° and 67°. Forward wing sweep provides take-off and landing capabilities at low speeds. For all other stages of flight the wings are manually swept in accordance with the desired Mach number and mission phase, thus providing the aircraft with a highly versatile operating envelope.
Following on from their award winning Canberra PR9 and L-1011 Tristar, this highly detailed simulation of the Panavia Tornado GR1 was developed by Just Flight’s in-house development team following comprehensive, hands-on research with the real-life ZA465 ‘Foxy Killer’ located at Imperial War Museum Duxford.
