Panavia Tornado 2000 via War Machine

The Panavia Tornado 2000 was a proposed massive upgrade and possibly a new production model for the Tornado fleet. The Tornado 2000 would not only have new avionics and weapon systems, but a new stealthier body and layout of the aircraft.

Royal Air Force was looking into the Tornado 2000 as potential upgrade, but the UK government and treasury found that the Tornado 2000 was too expensive and focus more on the Eurofighter 2000. 

So, the RAF decided to dropped Tornado 2000 upgrade and go for the for the cheaper solution, in which the RAF decided to upgrade the Tornado GR. MK1 up to GR.MK4 instead.
