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‘.

Yeah, every time one of these articles claims an old piece of technology is vastly superior to what replaced it, it gets dodgy. Between that and bringing up the F117 claim, the article comes off as not being believable (despite making some reasonable claim - the Tornado did end up being more specialized than originally intended, and the ADV should never have existed tbh).

I find that pretty odd as well. Please let us know if you can get some information on this!

Yeah, I also don't quite understand why this thread is in the Heatblur subforum. I mean it's a really great thread, but it's not in the right place here.

I still hope Heatblur will do the Tornado some day though

Either Hans, George or Luigi

Admins are always welcome to move threads, are they not? The discussion is pleasant, informative and well-intentioned. Where's the harm, and how is it causing distress?

Of course it won't sway Heatblur (who may or may not be working on a Tonka - it fits their comments to date, but is not the only aircraft to do so), but that's not the point of the thread. This might be an odd place for the thread to live, but here it is... Who knows, maybe it will be of some use one day

People see this thread and think Heatblur is working on a Tornado. Then they start pressuring Heatblur why their promised Tornado is taking so long. That's unfortunately how some people act here on these forums...
