In Team Yankee[edit]

Die Stats

If the A-10 Warthog is individually the 'best' strike plane in the game, the Tornado is tied with the Mirage 5 for the most cost-efficient bomber, only losing out to the 3+ call-in of British Harriers. While an 8 AP Salvo can be incredibly deadly on its own, the 3+ firepower rating is the bite of this plane's bark. Use these to cripple the fighting units of your opponent; tanks and IFVs are preferred but infantry are acceptable. Avoid going for support units: your Tornado is a suicide unit that should be used to trade for as many points as possible. Your opponent won't be able to win the game if their frontline troops become combat ineffective which a salvo template can easily do, creating holes in the enemy's line for your Leopards and Marders to punch through.

Though not as durable as their US and Soviet rivals, the Tornadoes cost merely two points per model-- A little over half what an SU-25 Frogfoot costs and less than half of what an A-10 will burn. You can take a flight of 2-4 Tornados.

It may be flimsy, but 3+ morale and an 8 AP top-armour attack make the drawback well worth it, especially considering the cost.

IRL[edit]

Ain't she pretty?

The Tornado is a true gem of NATO aerospace ventures have created in time. MBB of West Germany, BAE of Great Britain and Aeritalia of Italy. This Multirole fighter takes lessons learned from the F111 and F14 aircraft. It has served well in Desert Storm flying over enemy Air Fields with cluster bombs destroying runways, hangers, and just causing general mayhem over Iraqi Air base with the JP2333.
