Italian Air Force A-200 Tornado

Now entering the twilight of its operational career, the Panavia Tornado is a variable-geometry ('swing-wing') strike aircraft, developed by a consortium involving British, German and Italian manufacturers. As with the type's other operators, the Italian Air Force has reduced its Tornado fleet, to which it has given the official designation A-200, in the last few years. It has implemented a comprehensive mid-life upgrade on the remaining aircraft. Three operational squadrons now fly the attack versions, and one the EA-200B (Tornado ECR) specialised in the suppression of enemy air defences.
