Haynes RAF Tornado Owners' Workshop Manual: 1974 Onwards (All Marks and Models).

Written by former RAF Tornado F3 pilot Ian Black and published with the full cooperation of the RAF, the Haynes RAF Tornado Manual gives a unique insight into operating, flying and maintaining the air defence and strike versions of the supersonic swing-wing jet.

As the RAF approaches its 100th anniversary in 2018, the Tornado stands out for having served with distinction for almost half a century. The swing-wing jet has seen more combat than any other RAF type since the Second World War and will go down in history as one of the greatest aircraft ever operated by the RAF.

From a pilot's perspective the Tornado is a satisfying aircraft to handle: as an interceptor it was extremely competent and as a bomber/recce aircraft it has been exceptional. Thanks to the RB199 turbofan engine the jet has also excelled in terms of reliability and ease of maintenance.

The Tornado F3 benefitted from some serious weapons upgrades throughout its life – extra Sidewinders, then ASRAAM and AMRAAM; while the GR force has been totally transformed from old style iron bombs to modern smart weapons. More than ever before the GR4 is a weapons delivery platform par excellence. Fitted with the Goodrich RAPTOR pod the Tornado GR4A has become an airborne recce platform without equal.
