The Tornado Interdiction/Strike (IDS) is a family of aircraft operated by Germany, Italy, Saudi Arabia and the United Kingdom. The IDS family consists of 2 of the world's most sophisticated and capable attack aircraft with a large payload, long range and high survivability.
The Tornado was cleared to carry almost all the air-launched weapons in the NATO inventory, including cluster bombs, anti-runway munitions, and nuclear weapons. The aircraft also has a limited air-to-air capability with Sidewinder AAMs. RAF Tornadoes are designated by the GR (Ground attack and Recon) series. The GR.1 was delivered in a gunmetal grey/olive drab green camouflage, but this was changed to dark grey during the late 1990s. In operations over Iraq some GR.1s received a sandy "pink" scheme. GR.4s participating in the 2003 Iraq War were painted in a light grey scheme. German Navy examples normally sport a distinctive black/blue/gunmetal grey camouflage pattern.
The RAF is investigating replacements. This could be a manned aircraft, a UAV or a cruise missile (possibly Storm Shadow) based weapons system. Options for manned aircraft include modified versions of the Eurofighter Typhoon or the F-35 Lightning II (JSF). If selected the Typhoon would likely be modified for internal weapons carriage and increased internal fuel capacity.
