Refueling in the air of the German TornadoOn 2017-02-03 by Vivan Austin
Panavia Tornado is a twin-engine fighter-bomber that was created as a European response to the threat of USSR aviation. In spite of their already elaborate construction, they are still used by such countries as Germany, Italy and Great Britain. In the gallery you can admire the Luftwaffe’s machines during the air refueling operation with the flexible Airbus A310a MRTT.
Two Tornado engines allow the machine to reach a top speed of almost 2,400 km / h, with a range of up to 3,800 kilometers with attached fuel tanks. The maximum flight limit is up to 15,400 meters.
Tornado was flown in 1974, while its first combat use occurred during Operation Desert Storm – RAF and Italian. Currently they are phased out of service, mainly due to high operating costs and replacement with new machines.
