You have the target set right and with tomahawk missles, they are best at static targets rather than mobile.

Also begs the question if the target was programmed or there are special forces on the ground, feeding target information back and/or highlight targets.

Makes me think the recent "SAS" operation might have been a cover to insert T1 special forces

Typhoons being decomissioned? - they are the aircraft that we are transitioning too - unless of course the latest round of crazy defence cuts got them too?

Stinks like the beginning of Iraq war all over again. And we all know how accurate those aerial bombardments were, "save the citizens" they said and still a lot of innocent people lost their lives. Just Sad.

In other words - defend the civilians by bombing them. Way to go!

We defended Iraq. Just killed hundreds of thousands of civilians in the process. But the main task To defend civilians was accomplished. Just not too many civilians left after the defense I guess...

Something like that, I think they mothballed several squadrons.

Could be wrong

However the Tornado is a well proven machine, multi-capable though
