GERMAN TORNADO

Even with the Eurofighter's arrival, the Panavia Tornado remains very much key to the Luftwaffe's front-line capabilities. Just two operational wings still fly the type, these having been re-organised as Taktischen Luftwaffengeschwader (Tactical Air Wings) - the two aircraft at RIAT 2022 come from Taktisches Luftwaffengeschwader 51, a tactical reconnaissance wing based at Schleswig Air Base. Germany's reconnaissance jets were heavily engaged in Afghanistan until 2010. It is intended for the Luftwaffe to retain a certain number of Tornados in service until as late as 2025.
