The Panavia Tornado IDS is an attack craft, and part of the Tornado family of jets. The Tornado IDS family are variants of the British-used GR family used by Italy and Germany. Several members of the family are still in use today. This aircraft only appears in Airforce Delta Storm.
It's a Tornado; the design differences between the craft are never majorly different. Long profile, swept wings, single vertical stabilizer, twin engines, the same deal as the others.
Right in the middle in terms of the Tornado craft. It's superior to the Tornado F3, but inferior to the Tornado ADV. You won't be unlocking the ADV for quite a while, so... This'll be the best Tornado you'll have for quite a while. Still, it's ultimately not long before you encounter better, so... Yeah. An averagely average plane overall.
|Defense:||Medium-high (3100 HP)|
Note: There are no differences in stats between the US and PAL versions.
Enemy Appearances (Missions)
- Optional Tornado IDSes appear in every single Tanker Defense mission. There are two of them in each variation of the mission. In the PAL version, one of them is a target in Path to the Open Sea.
- Due to its nature as an attacker/ground strike aircraft, this plane uses air to surface missiles as its missiles, which appear to be based on the Brimstone.
