I don't deny that the Tornado Force got loft / toss the wrong way round for the entirety of its service life with dumb bombs! Lord knows how it ended up being that way.

We are getting it right now with PW4, which is delivered from a steady climbing profile known as 'loft'. Finally!

^^^^^^ Just like we did in the F-111F in the early '90s - Steady (Shallow) climb release...I think we called it a 'bump' in the -F model rather than a 'Climb-Auto' (F-111C term), or maybe a mini-loft...??
