X-Plane 11.50+ Tornado F-3 1.3. The Panavia Tornado Air Defence Variant was a long-range, twin-engine interceptor version of the swing-wing Panavia Tornado. The aircraft's first flight was on 27 October 1979, and it entered service with the Royal Air Force in 1986. The Tornado F3 was an improved version, powered by two Turbo-Union RB.199-34R Mk 104 engines, with automatic wing sweep control, increased AIM-9 carriage and avionics upgrades. Thanks to David Austin, for allowing me to bring his excellent X-Plane 9 Tornado F-3: tornado_adv_f3.zip to X-Plane 11. I had to convert the fuselage to 800 obj, and adjust the flight model as best I could. A new 3D cockpit has been added along with new pilot models. I added Ray Hill's IFR switch and probe, so it is fully IFR capable now. The swing wings are automatic, as on the real aircraft, and its flight duration is excellent, and this was one of its strengths. It was aimed at defending the UK against Russian bombers like the Tupolev Tu-22, so it isn't made to compete with agile fighters like the Sukhoi Su-27 and Mikoyan MiG-29. By Alan Ashforth.
