"Tornado crap" RAF admit after runway bombing success shocker

Gash Crab Bombeads :)

Spooky how the RN can multiskill the Pinkies and Greenies and make bombeads out of them as well, but the RAF keep this outdated trade as something sacred?

Having spent years working with them, they hang around all day (in their special crewrooms), pop out after flying and expect all trades to down tools whilst they do their bit, before early chopping.

Not-dropped ones?

I rather liked this quote:

RT said:
In July, it was reported that the RAF may lack sufficient warplanes to extend combat operations into Syria, despite senior political and military figures suggesting the idea in the wake of a terror massacre in Tunisia which left 30 British tourists dead in June.

It would be a very big ask. It could be done, but then you would see a real drop-off in the RAF’s ability just to keep eight Tornadoes on operations after that,” military sciences research analyst Justin Bronk told the Financial Times.
Hmmn. "If only we hadn't deliberately scrapped the Harrier to prematurely destroy the UK expeditionary air capability"

Nice to see a museum picture of some MK3 Fighters.

You lads are funny. Loads of serious capability weaknesses mentioned in that piece but the opportunity for a bit of crab bashing can't be lost.

Now that is sacrilege, no trade either RAf on RN should early chop before a pinky

If the powers that be took a very close look at how the junior service operate they could see where the savings and improvements could be made. This is not just a dig but I have never seen crewrooms so busy than on RAF squadrons.
