Meet the Tornado IDS WTD 61!
The Tornado IDS WTD 61 is another representative from the Tornado family that is in service with the Luftwaffe. A spectacular aircraft capable of shining in different roles, the Tornado IDS WTD 61 is coming to War Thunder as an attack variant, and for pre-ordering, you’ll receive an awesome looking red and white camouflage (visible in the screens below)! This aircraft will be a handy addition to your ground lineups thanks to its payload options, as well as being a great option in air modes thanks to its impressive high speed and useful air-to-air capability.
Let’s take a look at the specifics. The Tornado IDS WTD 61 is capable of carrying a good payload of 12 x 1000 lb Mk 83 bombs as well as free-fall parachute bombs, which can all be conveniently dropped with the help of a ballistic computer (CCIP). In terms of flight performance, as with all Tornado variants, this Tornado features variable-sweep wings, an air brake and engine thrust reverser that are perfect for maneuvering and aid in precisely dropping bombs in ground battles. That’s not all though, as it can also carry two fantastic AIM-9L air-to-air missiles, which are great for taking out enemy aircraft. To round it all off are the addition of flares and chaff to help provide defense against in-coming missiles.
Coming to War Thunder with the release of the upcoming major update, the Tornado IDS WTD 61 is available for pre-order right now in the Gaijin.Net store. For pre-ordering this pack, you’ll receive a special red and white camouflage and the “Ferocious” title!
