RAF Tornado in Afghanistan

Royal Air Force pilots continue to scramble into action in Afghanistan in the same way they did 70 years ago during the Battle of Britain. Tornado GR4 pilots and their navigators from XIII Squadron based in Kandahar are currently on daily standby to provide Ground Close Air Support (GCAS) to UK troops across Helmand province.
