1980
Norm 76
Scale:

Status:
Completed
Timeline:
Started on October 6, 2021

The first German Navy unit to receive the new Tornado IDS was the Marinefliegergeschwader 1 (MFG1) in 1981, which previously operated the F-104G Starfighter.

The new Tornado could now equip 4 Kormoran anti-ship missiles at once, instead of only two like the Starfighter.

Both the Starfighters and the Tornados of the MFG1 were painted in the Norm 76, with bazalt grey on the top half and light grey/white on the lower half.

The end of the Cold War has brought new limitations of NATO armed forces, with Germany needing to reduce its number of armed forces. In 1991 it was announcted, that the MFG1 will be disbanded, with some of its Tornados being slowly repainted and integrated in the MFG2 (Marinefliegergeschwader 2).

The 43+73 is likely to be one of the last Tornados of MFG1 to have flown as late as 1993 still painted in Norm 76, when MFG1 officially ceased to exist
