From the above posted report, the ASW part is strange.
Can't imagine that the Tornado GMR had just 40 nm of usable range for ships.

I need to find some german navy pilots.
From my knowledge, the GMR should be a little bit more capable than the Viggen AJ radar, but very comparable.

A good maritime radar can pick up the nice big steel and aluminium radar reflector that is a ship at long range. The Buccaneer’s Blue Parrot radar had a maximum range of 240 nautical miles, although 180 was more normally used. The Tornado…had a maximum range of forty nautical miles. So when operating without a Nimrod the Tornado was limited to firing Sea Eagle well inside the missile’s normal launch range” – Wing Commander Gordon Robertson (retd) in ‘Tornado Boys‘.
