The Panavia Tornado is a family of twin-engine, variable-sweep wing multirole combat aircraft, jointly developed and manufactured by Italy, the United Kingdom and West Germany. There are three primary Tornado variants: the Tornado IDS (interdictor/strike) fighter-bomber, the suppression of enemy air defences Tornado ECR (electronic combat/reconnaissance) and the Tornado ADV (air defence variant) interceptor aircraft.

The Tornado was developed and built by Panavia Aircraft GmbH, a tri-national consortium consisting of British Aerospace (previously British Aircraft Corporation), MBB of West Germany, and Aeritalia of Italy. It first flew on 14 August 1974 and was introduced into service in 1979–1980. Due to its multirole design, it was able to replace several different fleets of aircraft in the adopting air forces. The Royal Saudi Air Force (RSAF) became the only export operator of the Tornado in addition to the three original partner nations. A tri-nation training and evaluation unit operating from RAF Cottesmore, the Tri-National Tornado Training Establishment, maintained a level of international co-operation beyond the production stage.

The Tornado was operated by the Royal Air Force (RAF), Italian Air Force, and RSAF during the Gulf War of 1991, in which the Tornado conducted many low-altitude penetrating strike missions. The Tornados of various services were also used in The Bosnian War, Kosovo War, Iraq War, in Libya during the 2011 Libyan civil war, as well as smaller roles in Afghanistan, Yemen, and Syria. Including all variants, 990 aircraft were built.

The PBO and Sign files in the archive need to be extracted into your ArmA 3/Addons folder.
However the mod folder method is the better solution.

How to get rid of the weird red fist roundel stuck on every skin?

I uninstalled, reinstalled, and tried loading the game with nothing but FIR AWS and the Tornado and it's still there so it's definitely not a mod conflict.

Used to not have this problem.

This mod is VERY badly neglected compared to the other Firewill mods. It's very disappointing. Customization doesn't work, skins are broken, you can tell that this mod didn't get a lot of love and it's a shame.

Ok I actually tried to use the proper channels to throw this your way, but... just no... the B1 Lancer Bomber, would be a really nice addition to the collection

The tail hook is a common feature on many aircraft that do not take off or land on carriers. In an emergency, the tail hook is used on land-based runways to catch the aircraft. The F-15 also has a tail hook, but it cannot land on carriers.

Does this thing have functional thrust reversers? Tornadoes have them and use them quite a bit.

@some shit dead meme name Just because it has a tailhook that doesn't mean you can land it on carriers. In the real world, carrier aircraft need ridiculously stronger landing gear and airframes because of the stresses of making 20 tons of metal go from 130 knots to 0 in less than 600 feet.

I noticed that the Model for the Tornado has a tailhook but it doen't come up as an option. Is this deliberate?
