Summary

Summary

The variable-geometry Panavia Tornado is the result of a tri-national development programme between Britain, Germany and Italy, and has seen service during the Gulf War and the conflict over the Balkans. This volume tells the full story of the Tornado, which details the background and politics that led to the formation of Panavia; the development and testing of the aeroplane; and its subsequent service life in a variety of roles with its European and Saudi Arabian operators.
