Out of production since 1998, just under 1,000 Panavia Tornados were produced in three different (strike, fighter recon) variants and the type has seen significant service in the Bosnian and Kosovo War, as well as over Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, Yemen, and Syria. Today, Germany, along with Italy and the Saudi Air Force, are the primary users, as the RAF has retired the type earlier this year.
