Background story

Shown is RECCE TORNADO 43+96 of 512 squadron from Recce Wing 51 "Immelmann" in Schleswig with the special tiger paint for the Tiger Meet 2003 in Cambrai, France. The airplane is shown in the standard operational configuration consisting of two underwing tanks (one visible) on the inside wing station, a captive (training, not flyable) air-to-air missiles AIM-9L (i) SIDEWINDER, the RECCE POD which holds the sensors for the mission. Furhther on visible on the outside station of the port wing the electronic jammer pod CERBERUS III. Not visible on the outside of the other wing, the chaff and flare dispenser BOZ-101.

This print is the "wing version" of this tigerjet, which means the TRW 51 patch is shown on it instead of the patch of the 512 squadron. Recce wing 51 was until 2010 in the situation that the 512 patch as well as the wing patch showed the head of a black panther. The situation changed in 2010 when the 512 squadron converted to a new mission (UAV) and got a new patch without a big cat.
