Those protesters in St Petersburg and Moscow are just as brave as the Ukrainian soldiers. I too watched it with utter disgust and like you hope that it will mark a turning point in Russian history.

Great to hear and see the fantastic Tornado still making that unmistakable sound. Such an iconic aircraft and such a successful aircraft as well.

After all the money that has been spent and is still to be spent, I would expect pilots to say what was said about the F35.
After all. It is 5th generation.

The German MoD has spent a considerable sum of money remanufacturing certain parts to maintain their nuclear Tornado capabilities up to 2030.

Got to agree with you there. It is one thing to talk big. But another to actually do it. And that is the perennial problem with this government. High on promises. But consistent failure to deliver.

Regarding the Tornado numbers.
The official figures were - IDS 220 ADV 165 making 385. But production ran until 1995/6 and a number of the F2 ADV were withdrawn early. So not 400 jets.

Remember that part of the Tornado certification included NEMP testing I think in China Lake. So physical as well as software testing and certification to enable it to carry a nuclear bomb.

Correction accepted.
I thought that the Italian FACO was only for repairs. And was not aware that Japan had a production build line.
So thank you for your update.

Both F35 and Rafale only have one final production build line. EF has 4, which I do know adds to the unit cost. Duplication of expensive resources.

I thought that Rafale had just got an order for 80 jets. Shame that Typhoon had not sold a lot better. But it is pretty expensive, primarily because of the 4 nation consortium.

Quite correct. I was of the assumption that take off was at Max reheat. So you are right about going into combat.
Being a navigator certainly trumps an engineer by a big margin.

Couple of inaccuracies. Like only the RAF operated F3, when so did the Royal Saudi Airforce, as well as the Italian Airforce.
