Well on the news last night they were saying that the last GR4 Tornados are on their way home to be decommissioned and replaced with Typhoons

That's not exactly recent news but yes, they are supposed to be retired by late March. Germany and Italy will keep flying them though. Germany has just started looking around for a replacement (likely to also be the Typhoon), while Italy has started replacing them with F-35s but is slowing down the procurement process so we'll probably keep our IDS and ECR flying well into the 2020s.

It seems Germany might opt for the F/A-18, because the Eurofighter would need additional development.

It was the BBC showing the aircraft returning from their last deployment and showing from there they are heading for decommissioning, guess they were highlighting it was their last flight.

Hopefully it means that some of the older tech can be de-classified and get us closer to getting an IDS/GR into DCS.

Dunno why it quoted you this tablet is being weird today
