RSAF

The Royal Saudi Air Force continues to modernize its operational Tornado fleet. The RSAF Tornado Sustainment Programmes TSP1 & TSP2 (based on UK MLU and Packages 1 and 2) equipped the IDS fleet with a range of new precision-guided weapons and enhanced targeting equipment, updating the avionics, radios and navigation equipment, allowing the aircraft to deploy ASRAAM, ALARM, Brimstone and Storm Shadow weapons and to utilise the DAMOCLES Targeting Pod. TSP2 was concluded with last aircraft delivery in February 2013.
Current TS3 upgrade introduces a new dual mode GPS/INS and laser-guided bomb, modern pilot and navigator head down displays as well as Link 16 capability. Fleet embodiment has commenced in spring 2016.
