Canada buys retired (junked) Tornadoes from Britain on the cheap and rewings them with F-18 parts for supposed bargain basement price aircraft that costs a bundle in engineering work to get it to work!

Oh, sure, it's funny now. But how can we be absolutely sure that it won't actually happen  :o

Quick, make sure all those Tonka airframes have been made into pop cans and motor homes!

Like the purchase of the old Aussie F-18's, it's costing more to upgrade them to current RCAF standard than the cost to buy them.

Tornado F.5 with glove modifications like those proposed for the Tomcat 21, improved radar, EJ200 engines, and Meteor missiles instead of Skyflash.

One of these days I need to start on the extended airframe Tornado interceptor for Canada. I have everything, just need to put it together. That wing glove mod sounds cool!

It would be interesting to do a weight of fire comparison between the M61 and the original twin BK-27s

I have a Tornado ADV in the stash with plans to make it an interceptor for Canada. I’ll include an additional fuselage stretch for more fuel and Hindenburg tanks. Decal from an F-18. I need to get on with that. At least it would be an easier build.

Given the way matters seem to go in that part of the world, how about Turkish Tornados?
