Background story

Shown is RECCE TORNADO 43+46 of Recce Wing 51 "Immelmann" in Schleswig with the special tiger paint for the Tiger Meet 2002 in Beja, Portugal. The airplane is shown in the standard operational configuration consisting of two underwing tanks (one visible), two air-to-air missiles AIM-9L (i) SIDEWINDER (one visible), the RECCE POD which holds the sensors for the mission. Furhther on visible on the outside of the port wing the jammer pod CERBERUS III. Not visible on the outside of the other wing, the chaff and flare dispenser BOZ-101.

This print is the "wing version" of this tigerjet, which means the wing patch is shown on it instead of the patch of the 512 Tiger Squadron. Recce wing 51 was until 2010 in the situation that the 512 patch as well as the wing patch showed the head of a black panther. The situation changed in 2010 when the 512 squadron converted to a new mission (UAV) and got a new patch without a big cat.
