At BAE Systems, we are proud to have stood shoulder-to-shoulder with the RAF, with hundreds of our people playing a pivotal role in decades of support, training and upgrades for the RAF’s Tornado fleet. As Tornado officially goes out of service in the UK, the latest standard of Typhoon will take over, becoming the cornerstone of UK combat air capability.
