Well the aircraft is an RAF Tornado GR1. Info

It looks like a variant of a Paveway laser guided missile.

Nice same actual aircraft.

Not sure about it being a paveway look simlar to a paveway, but not actually the same as anyone I've seen.

Looks a bit like a GBU-15 or AGM-62 Walleye but not completely. So I reckon it could some sort of tv guided bomb.

Hmm, well I'm not sure exactly which ones they are, but I found a list of missiles on Wikipedia!

RAF GR1A Tornado ZG706 is in storage at St Athen and is reserve aircraft and not active - as a 1A the aircraft is recon aircraft


as for the missiles: the one under the wing looks like a hellfire/brimstone - but does appear larger than usual - the fins are wrong for maverick as well


they are not paveway`s - the seeker is wrong

i think the one under the wing is a martel AJ168 tv guided ASM

I thought I found it with the AJ168 as well, then I found a photo of one here.

wikipedia

That does seem the best match for the seeker and they both seem to have the same seeker as far you can tell from a photo. To me the one under the fuslage does look more like a guided bomb than a missile, but looks like it part of the same family as the one under the wing.

it's a variant of aj168, not to sure what it is called but i do belive it's used for live fire and testing.

recognise the photo from a book on aircraft weapons testing, i will see if i can dig it out on the net.

They look extremely similar, but I don't think it's the PGM's.

Says the PGM 500 and 2000 are for United Arab Emirates, but why would they be on a British Tornado?

They both have the bit underneath the missile at the back of the smaller ones, can't see the undernerath the PGM 2000

Since it was developed by Alenia-Marconi, they might of used RAF tornado for developement and testing.

I was wondering if I could find any info on ZG706 being used as a test aircraft, It got used used for FLIR trials (didn't get the upgrade to GR4 standard got stored instead)
linky

From this airshow list looks like it was assigned to SAOEU - Strike Attack Operational Evaluation Unit
linky
So that might be possible.

Do we know where and when the photo was taken?

So, may only way we can reach the answer is to find the source of this photo I think.

no the answer has been given above you the PGM 500 and 2000 would have been used whilst the aircraft was used at SAOEU for weapons carraige and stores testing
