Tornado by Peter R. Foster

Book Description

To encompass the story of Tornado and its achievements over the past 30 years would take several volumes. This book concentrates on Tornado Reconnaissance, looking at the two dedicated squadrons, II (AC) and XII, the systems they employed, and their worth to the overall structure, interspersed with personal tales of front line operations.With a foreword by Gp Capt. Ian Wood (last CO of No.XIII Sq), this book goes on to explain the concept of the internal recce system, TIRRS, development and use until declared down last year, and then covers the replacement systems JRP and Raptor including use over Iraq. There is a station history of Marham (UK recce base) where there are two Tornado squadrons and one Canberra squadron and detailed squadron histories and their roles in both recce and the RAF in general, will look at Time Sensitive Targets (TST), Scud hunting in Iraq in the Gulf War, plus an interview with F/L Peter Durke on how TIRRS developed. Finally, aircraft histories combine with details of attrition, and of overseas Tornado Recce including Germany and Saudi Arabia. Lavishly illustrated by a multitude of air to air and ground shots, this is a must-have book for the Tornado enthusiast.
