57mm


Not quite sure that is the correct use for oxymoron?

Any way, In the Tornado (any variant) BFM/ACM was essential since the aircraft's turning performance was so poor. Typhoon, F35 and...

Quite enjoyed the programme but a few bits were very annoying. The "progressive comm" was appalling and did not show the RAF in a good light. Is 4 Sqn full of Ex Harrier "mates"?
