Description

A Luftwaffe (German Air Force) Panavia Tornado ECR (s/n 46+54) of JaboG 32, Lechfeld (Germany), armed with an AIM-9 Sidewinder air-to-air missile and a jamming pod attached to the wings, and an AGM-88 HARM air-to-ground missile attached to the underside of the fuselage heads back towards its patrol area after refueling from a USAF Boeing KC-135R Stratotanker (not shown) of the 100th Air Expeditionary Wing. JaboG 32 (32nd Fighter-Bomber Wing) is one of the German Air Force's premier combat aircraft wings. The Tornado ECR is a specialized aircraft to detect and attack surface radars and surface-to-air missile launchers (a.k.a. Wild Weasel aircraft). JaboG 32 Tornadoes took part in Operation Allied Force from 24 March to 11 June 1999. They flew for 2.108 hours in 446 sorties over former Yugoslavia and the Kosovo and launched 236 HARM missiles.

The KC-135R was assigned to the 92nd Air Refueling Wing, Fairchild Air Force Base (Washington, USA), but was deployed to Royal Air Force Base Mildenhall to bolster the 100th AEW in support of NATO Operation Allied Force. Both assigned tankers and deployed tankers flying from RAF Mildenhall made up a large portion of the tanker assets supporting NATO aircraft in NATO Operation Allied Force in 1999.
