If true, and I've no reason to doubt it, this may be a move to bring Tornado into line with the rest of MoD. In June 1996, Tornado engines was the ONLY section in AML to avoid criticism for consciously wasting money. (Director of Internal Audit report 'Requirement Scrutiny' D/DIA/5/295/10, 27 June 1996).

The avionics bit sounds familiar. The original Apache contract included a raft of obsolescent and even obsolete avionics. It was only amended when spotted by another aircraft office.
