The Tornado ADV was developed to meet an RAF requirement for a long-range interceptor to replace the Lightning F6 and Phantom FGR2. Development was approved on 4 March 1976, with BAe to provide 3 prototypes. The first prototype was rolled out at Warton on 9 August 1979. During the Cold War, Great Britain was faced with the challenge of defending a large area of NATO's northern and western skies over the North Atlantic and Baltic Sea.
The ADV was designed to fly and patrol far from base over the North Sea and Northern Atlantic and to intercept its targets at long range.
The model comes with detailed 2048x2048 textures and with the following animations:
- Landing gears
- Intake vents
- Arresting hook
- Thrust reversers
- Sweep wings
